If 60% alcohol is good, why isn’t even more alcohol better?
If hand sanitisers that are 60% are good at killing germs, wouldn’t 90% or even 100% alcohol be even better? Surprisingly no. While higher alcohol concentrations do kill some rare germs better, the optimal concentration of alcohol to kill most bacteria, viruses (including coronaviruses), and fungi is a range that begins with 60% alcohol. Higher levels won’t kill those infections any better.
Hand sanitisers with incredibly high concentrations of alcohol come with trade-offs. You see, hand sanitisers with concentrations between 60-70% alcohol also contain emollients, ingredients that moisturise your hands. The higher the per cent alcohol, the more drying the hand sanitiser. Since alcohol is incredibly drying, these gels cannot be used regularly without damaging your hands. shows that you can actually make yourself more vulnerable to disease after using such cleansers.
