    If the alcohol content is high enough they will all do the practical job of killing pathogens.

    BEside that its personal preference of additives for scent or things that prevent it irritating etc.

    Provided they all have at least 62% alcohol and above content in them, I don’t see why there’s gonna be any significant difference between the sanitizers.

    Yea cause some are lower alcohol content in them. Make sure its atleast 63 percent and up cause anything lower according to CDC dosent do anything. Otherwise they pretty much all have alcohol and aloe gel and fragrance oils in them

      The ones that dry your skin too much are 62%+ alcohol, i.e the ones that kill the virus.

    Yes. As per the reports, the ideal alcohol concentration level is between 60-95%. Those hand sanitizers that have less than 60% alcohol content are not very effective. So make sure that whichever hand sanitizer you buy, its alcohol concentration is over 60%
