  • Methyl paraben;
  • Propyl Paraben;
  • Phenoxy Ethannol.

Many thanks!

Hi @Thanh_Ha_Nguyen and welcome to the forum!

Hmm…not sure about those ingredients to be honest. It seems like a list of ingredients you’d find in a commercial hand sanitizer.

All you need to make a really good hand sanitizer is rubbing alcohol (make sure it’s at least 60%), and aloe vera gel. Mix 3 parts rubbing alcohol with 1 part aloe vera gel. You can also substitute the rubbing alcohol for vodka, but that may be a little expensive.

Many thanks for your suggestion, Wine lady.

Yes, I created this list of these ingredients, but for hand wipe tissue, not gel (or any sanitizer based on alcohol).
Could you suggest to me which chemicals should be combined before mixing into the desired solution?
Does the process of mixing require any preparation (same as the content shown in the paragraph “method” in the image below)?

Sorry, I really don’t know anything about chemicals. I try to only use natural products, so that’s the only recipe I know!
