    Very refreshing to see someone with supplies of this not pricing it ridiculously high. Well done sir.

    If anyone is having trouble finding alcohol hand-rub in the shops, the website of WHO provides recipes for ethanol/glycerine and IPA/glycerine handrubs that are simple to make and very cheap. CLICKY

    That's a scam seller. Tried to order some at that price and eBay cancelled the order.
    There are a few on there....

    Thought it looked suspicious. The feedback looks dodgy as well.

    Learn.
    I ordered 250ml of 90% alcohol rubbing solution off e bay, this is for unsticking glue used for pulling a dent out of a car, nothing to do with cleaning hands, it was £6.99.
    Waited well past delivery date, now its seems the seller has "disappeared" leaving 100's of buyers waiting for the product, you should see the feedback.
    E bay will refund, but another scam, i suspect they have found a market where they can get 10 times the price !!!!

    Not sure this meets the current UK legislation for ingredients testing or labelling.

    Thank you for the labelling advice. I have looked into the regulations as far as I can - the EU Directive is enormous. Our labels are adequate, just, we think.

    We have new labels coming today which will address some of the concerns, and fresh stock coming tomorrow - but literally only 50 bottles will be available.

    One customer told me today that IPA has gone up 10x in price in the last week.

    Its not just labelling it also about having gone through the biocide testing and approvals process so that all ingredients are tested as safe and the appropriate safety approvals registered.

    https://www.thefactsabout.co.uk/news/ctpa-urges-against-using-home-made-hand-sanitisers

    Some hand wash or hand cleansing products making claims to kill named bacteria or viruses, and those intended to be used for disinfecting the hands and skin, are not cosmetic products but are classed as medicines or biocides. These products must also comply with the relevant strict medicinal or biocidal legislation and strictly enforced by the regulatory authorities.

    If it is not been properly tested then you also cannot claim it kills coronavirus, something you claim on the label - do you have the testing facilities and samples of the virus to test against?

    Samples of the Virus? Highly unlikely.
