rubbing high concentrations of alcohol on your skin is not pleasant. The alcohol can quickly dry out your skin because it will also disrupt the protective layer of oils on your skin. That’s why hand sanitizers contain a moisturizer to counteract this drying.

Yes , 60 % alcohol base senitizer contact period about 30 second is sufficient to kill virus ,WHO working on various combination . Washing hands with soap and water is rather more effective and efficient to kill virus period about 120 seconds or more.

Irrespective of its efficiency i take this provision as a good habit to keep cleaniness which people were ignoring So far composition of sanitizer is debatable 70%alcohol base or 17%isopropolene glycol based
