USP Updates Resource on Hand Sanitizers

03/25/2020 4:28 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

In light of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the expected shortage of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, the USP Compounding Expert Committee has offered a resource on Compounding Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer During COVID-19 Pandemic.

On March 24, 2020, recommendations were added by the USP Compounding Expert Committee to respond to stakeholder questions about substitutions in light of shortages of ingredients for compounding alcohol-based hand sanitizers. Formulation 3 was revised due to inherent variability in the raw materials and volatility to ensure that the isopropyl alcohol concentration exceeds the recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
