Our company (TMarketing Products) started importing hand sanitizer for a client during the Swine Flu when hand sanitizer was liquid gold. We had received samples and chose an unscented sanitizer because fragrances, especially from China, are known to create a sticky residue that can pick up germs. This would not be good for our medical field related clients or for people using sanitizer to eliminate germs.
When we received our shipment, and tested the product, the hand sanitizer smelled so bad that we thought something was wrong. It smelled like a heavy antiseptic. This was the beginning of a journey for us in understanding the difference between China personal care products and the USA made version.
An FDA registered product from China means only that the formula is registered with the FDA. Sanitizer from the USA and sanitizer from China have the same ingredients list, but they are very different products.
USA SANITIZER MADE WITH CORN ETHYL ALCOHOL –kills 99.9% of germs
CHINA SANITIZER IS MADE WITH POTATO OR SUGAR ALCOHOL
2 formulations using alcohol. 2 very different products.
