In the wake of growing demand for sanitizers amid COVID-19 outbreak, the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) has created an alcohol-based herbal sanitizer. An alcohol-based herbal sanitizer has been developed under the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, CSIR-Aroma Mission following the guidelines of World Health Organisation. This newly made herbal sanitizer constitutes Tulsi essential oil as herbal constituent and isopropyl alcohol. The Tulsi essential oil is a strong natural antimicrobial agent while the isopropyl alcohol will be helpful in killing germs.
The alcohol-based herbal sanitizer will be available under the brand name of ‘Clean Hand Gel’. The impact of herbal sanitizer will last for about 25 minutes, preventing skin from dehydrating.
