time: 10am New York Time / 4pm Paris time
length: one hour (includes Q&A)

The global pandemic has increased focus on the awareness among global consumers about the importance of proper hand hygiene.  Hand sanitizers, of course, are part of good hand hygiene when soap and water are not available.  Healthcare workers have long relied on routine-use of hand sanitizers to maintain clean, hygienic hands. With the increasing use of hand sanitizers by general public also comes more requirements on the sensorial aspects and ease of use. Hand sanitizers are available as gels and foams.  In this presentation, Ashland solvers will focus on ingredients and formulations for creating foaming hand sanitizers with a creamy texture.
