Abstract

Hand Sanitization plays the most important part in prevention and reduction of infectious diseases. As we observed in COVID pandemic, the finest approach was to manage this threat by sanitize our hand properly. Maintaining hand sanitization could prevent the incidence of infectious diseases. Taking into consideration, we prepared herbal hand sanitizer using two plant extracts of Ocimum sanctum and Azadiracta indica with several ingredients such as isopropyl alcohol, glycerol, kapoor and hydrogen peroxide. All the ingredients used in this formulation showed antimicrobial property. The study showed that the used of hand sanitizer was more efficient than washing hands. Washing hands may cause spreading of infections. Phytochemical study of extracts was performed. The ingredients and sanitizer were evaluated for antimicrobial activity against two bacterial strains of E. coli and C. albicans and gave zone of inhibition of (8 ± 1) mm and (7 ± 1) mm respectively. The sanitizer was prepared in the laboratory and its efficacy was checked, its shelf life, pH and other physical parameters were evaluated.

Keywords: Sanitizer, infection, skin, antimicrobial, alcohol, hands.
