Lee said, “Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus disease, our company has decided to make hand sanitizers for our family, friends and clients. We used Benzethonium Chloride and 25% of alcohol as our main ingredients which are safe to use and also environmentally friendly. Based on the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Benzethonium is a synthetic quaternary ammonium salt with surfactant, antiseptic and a broad spectrum of antimicrobial properties. Its salt form, Benzethonium chloride, is primarily used as a skin disinfectant at a concentration of 0.1-0.2 %, which is safe and effective for the compound. It is effective in mediating its antimicrobial action against bacteria, fungi, mould and viruses.”

Prof Goi said, “I do realise that our community is lacking the awareness of washing hands and using hand sanitizer. I hope through this Coronavirus incident, more people would realise the importance of washing hands regularly and being hygienic.”
