COVID-19 is a continuing threat to people around the world. Hand sanitizer has been in high demand since the pandemic’s onset. U.S. Tape & Label now offers hand sanitizer labeling services to ensure consumers find the safe, effective sanitizer they want and need. If your company produces hand sanitizer, here’s what you need to know about the FDA’s guidelines and our labeling services.
At the beginning, the FDA issued guidelines for safe hand sanitizer ingredients. They only allow ethanol (also called ethyl alcohol), isopropyl alcohol, food-grade glycerin, hydrogen peroxide, and sterile water as ingredients in hand sanitizer. Why does that matter? Well, the FDA has had to issue warnings about dangerous hand sanitizer ingredients, such as methanol (also called wood alcohol). Methanol is dangerous to humans when absorbed through the skin and life-threatening when ingested directly. If you manufacture hand sanitizer in your facility, consult the FDA guidelines to ensure you use only safe ingredients.
If you need labels for hand sanitizer or beyond, look no further than the skilled services of U.S. Tape and Label.
When the pandemic first started, stores weren’t able to keep hand sanitizer on their shelves as more people took steps to keep clean and avoid contracting COVID-19. This increased demand for hand sanitizer even led many breweries and distilleries to pitch in and start producing hand sanitizer to ease the load on current manufacturers during lockdown periods in 2020.
Hand sanitizer has been vital for the essential workers who are in the trenches each day throughout the pandemic, potentially risking their lives to keep society on its feet. Having enough hand sanitizer available to keep them safe is the duty of the companies that are providing essential services and have the means to help. Hand sanitizer isn’t as effective as washing your hands, but the CDC recommends its use when hand washing isn’t an option, which is often the case for essential workers. Frontline workers such as grocery store clerks, delivery drivers, warehouse workers, and healthcare professionals complained about a lack of hand sanitizer when it began to sell out in February 2020. However, many companies have stepped in to fill that need. U.S. Tape & Label stands beside them, ready to label hand sanitizer bottles in standard and custom sizes.
Hand sanitizer products need labels on the market to help them list their ingredients and meet FDA guidelines and requirements. Many now come in various shapes and sizes since manufacturers began using whatever materials are available to them. Increased production of hand sanitizer created an increase in the need for labels and packaging, which is what USTL does best.
