How is hydroalcoholic gel made with homogenizer?

Hydroalcoholic gel, also known as alcohol gel, antibacterial gel disinfectant gel, hydrogel or antibacterial gel, is a cleansing solution used as hand sanitizer, is an adjunct to the use of soap and water. Its main purpose is to prevent the spread of germs. In general, hydroalcoholic gels should be composed of alcohol in an approximate proportion between 60 % and 85 %, the most common being 70 %.

However, alcohol may not be the only component of the antibacterial gel, although it kills between 99.99% and 99.999%, the truth is that it is not effective against the spores of anaerobic bacteria, for this reason must also include oxygenated water. They are extremely effective, starting to act within 15 seconds of being applied. Despite being a supplement to soapy water, they can be used as a substitute in case the hands are not visibly dirty.

With the Covid-19 pandemic, the demand for hydroalcoholic gels increased, therefore, the manufacture of them increased. For its elaboration, it is necessary of a series of laboratory equipment, among which the homogenizer stands out. Some of the elements that are combined are not miscible with each other, so it is necessary to use it.

Hydroalcoholic gel

Every day we are exposed to contamination by germs, which can enter our body through the mouth, eyes or nose. Frequent hand washing and the use of good quality hand sanitizers are the most effective way to prevent infections and reduce the spread of germs.

The best option for hand disinfection are hydroalcoholic gels, these are only a mixture of water and alcohol, as main elements, and glycerin, oxygenated water or flavoring, as secondary elements. Their effectiveness, in addition to depending on their components, is related to the way they are applied.


A homogenizer is an instrument used in industrial and science laboratories to perform the technique of homogenization, i.e. the formation of uniform solutions from solutes that are not miscible with each other. It can be applied to a wide variety of materials, such as tissues, cells, food, soil or plant samples, among others. The operation of homogenizers is very simple, it is based on the creation of a vortex in the sample that disintegrates its components and allow the obtaining of a homogeneous solution.

Although the homogenizer is a simple equipment, it is advisable to follow a series of recommendations to avoid accidents. Firstly, it is advisable to place it on a stable, level and clean surface, this in order that your feet are strongly attached to the surface and in this way avoid spills. On the other hand, it is recommended to install it near a current source that is grounded.

Manufacture of hydroalcoholic gels with homogenizers

According to the WHO, hydroalcoholic gels are a pharmaceutical product used in sanitary hygiene, both for disinfecting hands and surfaces. It is made of several elements, which it is vital to mix them correctly so that they are not divided into several phases and lose attractiveness to the target audience.

An important step in the development of antibacterial gels is the homogenization of their components, in order to avoid lumps and the resulting solution is formed by a single phase. That is why, during the preparation of hydroalcoholic gels it is essential to have a homogenizer to make a correct mixing or to better disintegrate the elements to be added, for example, if they are made from plants.
