Hand sanitizers are typically made of alcohol and additives, to which a thickener is often added to create the gel texture. Gel sanitizers are considered more “user-friendly” than liquids as they avoid spilling and thus, wasting the sanitizer material that is critical to fighting the COVID-19 outbreak.

The thickener typically used to produce hand sanitizing gels and other home and personal care products are currently in global shortage due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Mowiplus HPC 9600 is an alternative that offers high performance and allows to skip the 12 hr hydration process needed traditionally.
