Is Your Hand Sanitizer Safe?

Millions use it to safely kill bacteria everyday, but is hand sanitizer really safe?

The FDA wants proof they actually work.

The gels have three anti-germ ingredients, ethanol, alcohol and a type of chloride and the FDA is asking for studies to show how the gels get absorbed into the body

Focusing on children and pregnant women, if these ingredients show up in blood or urine after repeated daily use, it could mean the chemicals are hurting reproductive systems or the production of hormones.

By this fall, the FDA is expected to announce a decision on antibacterial soaps and whether they are safe and more effective than soap and water.
