Does your Hand Sanitizer meet the minimum FDA COVID-19 requirements?
Some hand sanitizers have been found to be using methanol and listing it generically as alcohol on their ingredient list. Methanol has been found to be hazardous and is a known toxin that can cause blindness or seizures. Other brands have such a low concentration of antiseptic that they do not meet the COVID-19 FDA guidelines to protect yourself and your loved ones. Some sanitizers are only anti-bacterial and do not have anti-viral properties which offer protection against COVID-19.
It’s important to be well versed on this topic and to shop accordingly. American Integrative only sources ingredients from the United States and our hand sanitizer is made of ethanol and/or isopropyl in a 75% concentration, which is the FDA guideline. Because our sanitizer is high in antiseptic properties, it can also be used as a surface disinfectant.
Know that ethanol and isopropyl are difficult to obtain right now. Many reputable vendors will only sell ethanol and isopropyl to medical establishments only right now. So, unless you are buying from a medical establishment, it’s likely you are not buying a sanitizer that is meeting the COVID-19 guidelines.
Was your Hand Sanitizer on the Recall List of Potentially Harmful Products?
The FDA recently put out a warning regarding recalled hand sanitizers. To check if your hand sanitizer was recalled, please see below.
Which hand sanitizers are toxic?
The FDA is continually updating their warning list of National Drug Code registry numbers (NDC numbers) for hand sanitizers containing or testing positive for traces of methanol. You’ll be pleased to know that there isn’t a major brand on this list — but it’s good to check your bottle to quell any concerns. As of July 6, the FDA’s recall list includes:
- Grupo Insoma’s Hand Sanitizer Gel Unscented 70% Alcohol (with multiple NDC numbers).
- Transliquid Technologies’ Mystic Shield Protection Hand Sanitizer (with multiple NDC numbers).
- Soluciones Cosmeticas SA de CV’s Bersih Hand Sanitizer Gel Fragrance Free (with multiple NDC numbers).
- Soluciones Cosmeticas SA de CV’s Antiseptic Alcohol 70% Topical Solution Hand Sanitizer
- Tropicosmeticos SA de CV’s Britz Hand Sanitizer Ethyl Alcohol 70% (with multiple NDC numbers).
- Saniderm Advanced Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-001-01)
- All-Clean Hand Sanitizer (NDC: 74589-002-01)

The FDA shared that methanol “is not an acceptable active ingredient for hand sanitizers, and must not be used due to its toxic effects.” While the FDA hasn’t recorded any cases related to these recalled brands yet, it’s asking customers to safely dispose of the sanitizer in question (you can view full lists here and here). Additionally, the FDA says its working to correct “false and misleading” claims on hand sanitizers being sold during the COVID-19 pandemic — primarily, on those that promise 24-hour protection against viruses like COVID-19.
