ABSTRACT

 

Hand hygiene is an easy way to prevent the transmission of various infectious diseases. The presence of hand sanitizer has a major impact on the ease of accessing hand hygiene. Hand sanitizer is an alternative to washing hands when water and soap are not available. However, it is important to evaluate the antimicrobial effect of hand sanitizers in the market and in-house products. This study conducted a comparative research by comparing different formulations of ingredients on bactericidal effect. This study focuses on hand sanitizer and the comparative concentration of ethanol and tea tree oil to eliminate E. coli bacteria. The best alcohol concentration was 70%, compared to absolute, 80%, and 60% and there was no difference in the effectiveness of the tested hand sanitizers. Hand sanitizers manufacturing is highly dependent on active ingredients and concentrations. It is important to be thoughtfull about choosing and making hand sanitizer, so that the product can have adequate function. Hand sanitizer with optimal content and effect can reduce the incidence of infectious diseases.

ABSTRAK

 

Hand hygine merupakan cara mudah untuk mecegah transmisi berbagai macam penyakit menular. Hadirnya hand sanitizer memberikan dampak besar dalam kemudahan akses hand hygine. Hand sanitizer menjadi alternatif mencuci tangan saat tidak tersedianya air dan sabun. Meski demikian pentingnya untuk mengevaluasi efek antimikroba yang terkandung dalam hand sanitizer yang beredar di pasar maupun produk sendiri. Studi ini melakukan penelitian komparatif dengan membandingkan formulasi bahan yang berbeda terhadap efek bakterisidal. Penelitian ini berfokus pada hand sanitizer dan tahap perbandingan kadar etanol dan konsentrasi tea tree oil untuk membunuh bakteri E. coli. Konsentrasi alkohol terbaik berdara di angka 70%, dibandingkan kengan kadar absolut, 80%, dan 60% serta tidak didapatkan perbedaan efektivitas terhadap produk hand sanitizer yang diuji. Pembuatan Hand sanitizer sangat bergantung pada bahan aktif dan konsentasi. Pentingnya untuk memperhatikan aturan dalam memilih dan membuat hand sanitizer, agar produk bisa memiliki fungsi yang adekuat. Hand sanitizer dengan kandungan dan efek yang optimal mampu menurunkan kejadian infeksi menular.
