This has already been proven to be incorrect. For hand sanitiser to auto ignite the temperature would need to be above 363°C

"At temperatures below several hundred degrees celsius, there would need to be a spark for alcoholic hand sanitisers to catch fire."

Home bargains have it listed on their website as 63%. Also when I contacted them 2 months ago they sent this safety data sheet:

Decent sized bottles too! 🔥

Which also means no greater than 63% they also specifically state on home bargains product page for this that it's 63% id you don't agree dispute it with home bargains.
Cold 63% alcohol - not strong enough, needs to be at least 70%

Same. These ones were great as it had the pump handle. I was gutted to see the price of hand sanitisers shoot up so good to see it coming back down.
Hand sanitizer is a useful product but never as good as washing your hands properly with soap and water.

You forget one thing before Covid how many people bothered to check the ingredients looking for a percentage of alcohol? It's only just become something that people check hopefully home bargains will eventually adjust their labeling. I'm sure when you used to use it you were unlikely to look on the back and ask yourself what's the alcohol content because it wasn't a burning question before all of this.

The home bargains sanitisers has always stated on the back it contains alcohol you were stupid enough to buy it before without checking what it's percentage level was because it wasn't important prior to Covid! Like i said home bargains have already confirmed its 63% unless they were misleading people something i doubt they would do considering the repercussions it would cause. Now get a grip of yourself and accept it or move on!

I'm not going to say anything else other than it's not always shown on the label the alcohol percentage nor are they legally required to state it on the label. Companies have started making a point of updating their labelling to state alcohol percentage because people have been told 60% or higher is needed, as I have said twice people didn't pay attention to alcohol percentage before Covid and would have bought the product regardless of the percentage prior to the pandemic. I have three different sanitisers bought from different shops none state the alcohol percentage including one that was supplying to NHS, to get the information the manufactures had to be contacted. I was also make a point if your that worried or distrusting of home bargains own brand gel then they have about 20 other brands to choose from!

I agree that you can't question a Safety Data Sheet, which shows that the HIGHEST potential percentage of alcohol is 62% and lowest is 1%, so why do you say " Like i said home bargains have already confirmed its 63% "??


I'm still not sure that you understand what the symbol "<" means.

Home bargains have already confirmed in writing that it's 63% they have also stated this on their website, if you feel they are liars why not report them to trading standards?. If people are that unsure then don't be a cheap skate, buy an expensive brand it's that simple. Like I said no one took the time to even check the percentage before all of this and the most recent research now suggests covid can be killed at as low as 40%.

"Home bargains have already confirmed in writing that it's 63% "
I have not seen this written confirmation, where did you see it?
I have only seen the Data Safety Sheet and what someone, who works for Home Bargains, has written on the product description on their website.

The Safety Data Sheet and website description contradict each other.
I believe that it is MUCH more likely that the information on the Safety Data Sheet is accurate, than what someone has wrote in the product description on Home Bargains website.
I don't think they are "liars". I believe it is either an employee that doesn't understand what the "<" symbol means, or they have not noticed the "<" symbol.

Out of curiosity, do you think it is a figure LESS than 63%, or 63%?

"don't be a cheap skate, buy an expensive brand"
Most people come to this website to find deals, bargains, value for money. People may be happy with 63% and see the price as good value. But the Safety Data Sheet shows that this is NOT 63%. Although unlikely, it could be less than the 40% you mention. It then becomes much less likely to be considered good value.

"Like I said no one took the time to even check the percentage before all of this"
Surely you understand that people, through no fault of their own, were less informed of the effectiveness of various strength sanitisers before this COVID pandemic. I don't recall any news articles related to hand sanitiser strengths prior to this pandemic.
So it makes sense that people didn't used to check the percentage, but now do!

I am genuinely grateful for the time you took to post the Safety Data Sheet. I am in the highest risk group (due to having a kidney transplant) and have been shielding since a week, or so before it was officially announced for me to do so. That is why I need to know details and not just given guess work, which the Data Sheet shows. I really think that the figure should either be an accurate set figure, or the range in which the products alcohol contents fall (e.g. 60-62%). At the minimum a ">" (greater than) figure/minimum percentage figure would still have some use.

I am not advising people not to buy this product, neither have I voted it cold. I just think people need to be informed of what they are buying and only mentioned that it is less than 63% so people can make an informed decision.
