Hand Sanitizers

There are basically two types of Hand Sanitizers sold in the US.  Alcohol and alcohol free.  They can both be effective, however most experts agree that the Alcohol based is more effective. 

From Encyclopaedia Britannica:

Agencies such as the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention promote the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers over alcohol-free products.2,15,16 Indeed, the use of alcohol-free products has remained limited, in part because of WHO’s and CDC’s focus on alcohol-based products but also because of concerns about the safety of chemicals used in alcohol-free products. Research has indicated that certain antimicrobial compounds, such as triclosan, for example, may interfere with the function of the endocrine system.17 Environmental contamination from triclosan is another concern.18 Disinfectants and antimicrobials also can potentially contribute to the development of antimicrobial resistance.1,7,15 In 2014, mounting concerns over triclosan led authorities in the European Union (EU) to restrict the chemical’s use in various consumer products in the EU.19

By comparison, concerns over the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer have centered primarily on product flammability and ingestion, both unintentional (e.g., by young children) and intentional (by individuals seeking to abuse alcohol).6,20,21 With proper storage and strategies that limit access to alcohol-containing sanitizer (e.g., issuing hand sanitizer to individuals), the risk of fire or poisoning from accidental or intentional ingestion of alcohol-based hand sanitizers is considered to be low.20,21
