Formulation, Delivery and Packaging Considerations for Producing Hand Sanitizers this Cold and Flu Season
With cold and flu season right around the corner, CPG companies and retailers are stocking store shelves with hand sanitizers to meet customer demand. Designed for use after washing hands or for instances where soap and water are not available, hand sanitizers deliver convenient germ protection wherever consumers may be – from airplanes to doctor’s offices to school settings.
While the end goal for all hand sanitizer solutions remains the same – to kill bacteria and prevent the spread of diseases and contamination – the formulation, delivery and packaging options vary greatly.
Some customers’ want proven alcohol-based solutions, while others prefer non-alcohol hand sanitizers. More and more hand sanitizers are also featuring natural and moisturizing attributes. Consumers want these sanitizer formulations in a wide variety of delivery formats to meet their on-the-go lifestyles and preferences – from liquid pump sprays to foaming solutions to aerosol sprays and beyond.
