PURELL® Hand Sanitizer Is Not Formulated with Methanol

PURELL® Hand Sanitizer is not formulated with methanol. The active ingredient in PURELL® Hand Sanitizer is ethyl alcohol.

We adhere to the highest standards of product formulation and production. We only source from suppliers who offer ethyl alcohol suitable for OTC drug products. We conduct rigorous quality testing of both the alcohol and the finished PURELL® Hand Sanitizer to ensure it meets FDA drug product quality requirements. In addition, GOJO has always included a denaturant in our PURELL® Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer to inhibit misuse.

For 30 years – since we created the first PURELL® Hand Sanitizer in 1988 – we have carefully formulated and tested our proprietary hand sanitizers to kill most common germs, be gentle on skin, have a great user experience, and be safe to use.
