NM-Carbomer /Carbopol polymers application in hand sanitizer to kill bacteria


Disease-causing germs are ubiquitous in people's daily life.

In these cases, recommends using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and antibacterial hand gels which are capable of killing most germs. Here are the ingredients of hand sanitizer:

Active Ingredients

isopropanol, both forms of alcohol. Alcohol kills most germs on contact without causing serious harm to the skin tissue, which makes it an effective active ingredient for hand sanitizers. Ethanol and isopropanol are antiseptics that kill germs by dissolving their essential proteins. This disrupts the normal cell activity of the germ, causing it to die.

Inactive Ingredients

To aid in application, and increase the skin benefits of the product, hand sanitizers and antibacterial hand gels are composed of inactive ingredients alongside ethanol or isopropanol. For example, humectants, such as glycerin, work as moisturizing agents. Humectants draw moisture from the surrounding environment and hold it close to the skin. A newer development in hand sanitizers and antibacterial hand gels are the use of fragrance oils to help lessen the smell of alcohol when applying the product.

NM-Carbomer products

As thickening agents, NM-Carbomer products are common ingredient used to make gel-like solutions. NM-Carbomer 940CHC/Carbopol 940, carbomer 980HC /Carbopol 980, carbomer 941/Carbopol 941 etc, are used to give hand sanitizers and antibacterial hand gels a gel like texture, which aids in the application and spreading of the product on the hands.

The carbomer is added to water by sifting it in. As the carbomer recombine with the water, it creates a non-foaming gel.

Anhui Newman Fine Chemicals co., Ltd as the top professional manufacturer of carbomer products, have been improving our NM-Carbomer products quality. NM-Carbomer2020/ Carbopol ETD 2020, NM-Carbomer 20/Carbopol Ultrez 20, NM-Carbomer 21/Carbopol Ultrez 21, NM-Carbomer 10/Carbopol Ultrez 10 behave better with high clarity and viscosity.


Hand sanitizers and antibacterial hand gels with at least a 60 percent inclusion of alcohol are effective in killing bacteria, including the Streptococcus bacteria, as well as the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB). Hand sanitizers and antibacterial hand gels are also effective against fungal infections, as well as enveloped viruses, such as the common cold and flu viruses.
