Have any questions?
What type of alcohol does your company use?
Our 1 gallon hand sanitizer is made with Ethyl Alcohol.
Our 1 liter hand sanitizer is made with Isopropyl Alcohol. The current 1 liter contains Ethyl Alcohol. We are transitioning it to Isopropyl Alcohol 100% U.S. Made.
Both are 100% safe!
Is Neptune Hand Sanitizer safe?
Our hand sanitizers meet the strict U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) standards adopted by the Food and Drug Administration. Rest assured that as part of meeting the USP standards, we will continue to take measures to ensure that our hand sanitizers are safe to use and made of the highest quality ingredients.
What is the difference between Isopropyl (IPA) and Ethyl alcohol?
Both isopropyl and ethyl alcohol are approved antiseptic ingredients per the FDA. Ethyl alcohol is most commonly derived from corn and isopropyl alcohol is derived from propene, an organic compound.
Is hand sanitizer effective against COVID-19?
The best way to prevent the spread of infections and decrease the risk of getting sick is by washing your hands with plain soap and water, advised by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds is essential, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing one's nose. If soap and water are not available, the CDC recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol-based on FDA OTC Monograph Part 333A. Our isopropyl alcohol hand sanitizers contain 70% isopropyl alcohol as required by the monograph.
Do hand sanitizers have an expiration date? Are they still effective after?
OTC drug products generally must list an expiration date unless they have data showing that they are stable for more than 3 years. The FDA does not have information on the stability or effectiveness of drug products past their expiration date (See 21.CFR 211.137). Hand sanitizers produced under the temporary policies for hand sanitizer production and compounding may not have an expiration date listed because they are expected to be used during this public health emergency.
How can I find hand sanitizers listed with the FDA, or verify that a company has listed its product with the FDA?
The FDA publishes product listing information by the companies that make the drug on the National Drug Code (NDC) Directory. This listing does not mean the drug is approved by the FDA. Anyone can look up a drug product and download the information by searching on its NDC. To find our product, select the type as "Labeler" and enter our company name SUGARLEAF. For a list of all hand sanitizers, choose the proprietary name search, and search for the term "hand sanitizer".
In summary, we are following the rules and regulations established by the FDA under the OTC Monograph part 333A. Our products contain the required active concentrations.
Does the FDA regulate all hand sanitizers? Do hand sanitizers come with product information on their labeling?
Hand sanitizers are over-the-counter (OTC) drugs regulated by the FDA. Hand sanitizers that meet the FDA's OTC drug review conditions or that are manufactured under the conditions in the FDA's temporary policy will include a "Drug Facts" label similar to the ones found at the end of the guidance: Temporary Policy for Preparation of Certain Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer Products During the Public Health Emergency (COVID-19).
