The Milton Antibacterial Hand Gel should not be used on children below the age of 3 because of its high alcohol content. Babies skin is not fully developed and it is important to use on their skin hypoallergenic formulas.
No because the use of alcohol based products is not recommended on children under 2. At that age the skin of the child is not mature and there is a risk of the alcohol getting in the child’s blood stream.
The Milton Hand Gel contains 62% ethanol and 10% isopropanol which enables it to evaporate within 30 seconds on contact with hands. At this concentration germ kill is almost instantaneous. The gel also contains a moisturiser which prevents the hands drying out during the rapid evaporation.
* Hydratation of top skin layers
** Formulated to minimise the risk of allergic reactions.
