How to make homemade disinfecting hydroalcoholic gel with aloe vera for long-term use (easy)

17/03/2020


With the increasing speculation and risk of disinfectant products shortage, many people are asking us how to make homemade gel with aloe vera for disinfecting hands. Making an antiseptic and hand sanitizer gel is very easy, so here we explain how to do it easily for long-term use.

Ingredients

You just need two essential ingredients:

  • 96º alcohol. Sanitizes thanks to its bactericidal and viricidal action. Lower alcohol content can be bactericidal, but not viricidal, therefore it is essential to use 96º alcohol.
  • Aloe vera gel with lavender essential oil. Dermoprotective and bactericidal. Protects our hands against abrasion, moisturizing and nourishing in depth. ATALAYA BIO organic aloe vera gel also contains a biocidal ingredient with recognized antiseptic properties: lavender essential oil.

Preparing the mix

Our recommendation for a long-term disinfecting gel, is to prepare your gel keeping the proportions below:

In brief, if we want to obtain 100 ml of disinfectant gel, the proportion will translate into 60 ml of 96º alcohol and 40 ml of aloe vera gel with lavender essential oil.

Why is it important to add aloe vera

Alcohol increases dryness and irritates the skin. A disinfectant gel with over 80% of alcohol (industrial market gels) may be suitable for specific and short-term uses, but can generate dermatosis and severe skin lesions in a long-term use. Facing a health crisis such Coronavirus (COVID-19), which can last for weeks or even months, it is essential to provide an adequate proportion of aloe vera in disinfectant gels, protecting our hands without losing that disinfecting effect of alcohol.

Where to get aloe vera gel
