DIY Hand Sanitizer Gel (tanpa Alkohol)

Diperbarui: Apr 25

DIY Natural Hand Sanitizer tanpa Alkohol

Hand sanitizer has been my essential since years ago. Hobi jalan-jalan membuat saya selalu bawa hand sanitizer, baik dalam bentuk gel atau spray. I know it is better to wash hands with soap and water but those essentials are not always available. Engga semua tempat makan punya wastafel lho dan pas di public transport, sering kita butuh hand sanitizer. I usually bought whatever hand sanitizer those are available in the supermarket. I chose based on packaging or scent.


Tapi sejak 2017, sejak saya mengidap eczema on my palm, saya sungguh berhati-hati memilih dan menggunakan hand sanitizer. It’s difficult to get hand sanitizer with no alcohol. Alcohol memang berfungsi sebagai disinfectant dalam hand sanitizer yang efektivitasnya sudah terbukti. Tapi karena eczema di telapak tangan, dampaknya perih banget kalau pakai hand sanitizer yang mengandung alcohol – dan tangan jadi kering, kulit mengelupas dan kemerahan. Karena susah dapat hand sanitizer tanpa alcohol, saya sempat switch to wet tissue – tapi ini menimbulkan masalah sampah kan?


So, here I am deciding to make my very own DIY hand sanitizer yang beneran bisa saya custom sesuai kebutuhan alias ga pake alcohol dan bisa milih essential oil yang mau dipakai. It is easy to make – a 5 minutes DIY, dengan bahan-bahan yang mudah dibeli/didapatkan.


Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Vera gel

  • 1 tbsp witch hazel (alcohol free)

  • ¼ tbsp Vitamin E

  • 5 drops Peppermint EO

  • 5 drops Eucalyptus EO

  • 3 drops Lemon EO


Equipment

  • 1 glass stirrer

  • 1 glass beaker

  • 1 set sendok ukur (memudahkan bikin-bikin DIY)

  • 1 bottle dengan tutup flip top atau tube - I use penguin silicone tube

  • Mini funnel atau sendok kecil

  • Mini spatula


Cara Pembuatan:

  1. Masukkan 1 sendok Vera gel dan 1 sendok witch hazel ke dalam beaker

  2. Aduk dengan glass stirrer hingga tercampur rata – warnanya akan menjadi putih susu

  3. Masukkan Vitamin E dan essential oils

  4. Aduk rata lagi

  5. Pindahkan ke dalam botol/tube


Bikin Sendiri Hand Sanitizer tanpa Alkohol

Notes:

I use Elemence Vera Gel karena produk ini tidak mengandung alkohol, tidak mengandung fragrance , tidak lengket, adem dan plus point lainnya adalah mengandung ekstrak berbagai tumbuhan sebagai zat aktif antioksidan. Feel free to substitute Vera gel with other aloe vera gel or liquid aloe vera (to make hand sanitizer spray). If you use fresh aloe vera gel, you might need preservative.


Pilih essential oil dengan kemampuan antibacterial dan antifungi yang tinggi. I choose peppermint, eucalyptus dan lemon. Tapi ada banyak pilihan lain such as clove, rosemary, cinnamon (I’m allergic to cinnamon essential oil), orange, lemongrass, citronella, geranium dan sebagainya.


Keep in mind bahwa DIY hand sanitizer ini tidak dites di lab untuk efektivitas antibacterial dan antifungi - nya. I rely on the essential oil I use in this recipe. Then, considering the ingredients used in this DIY recipe, this hand sanitizer is way more expensive than hand sanitizer yang ada di pasaran. However, this hand sanitizer gel doesn’t contain triclosan, alcohol and fragrance that I’m sensitive to.
