​ Reference: Regarding ethanol concentration 

The concentration of ethanol for disinfection according to the Japanese Pharmacopoeia is 76.9-81.4 vol%, but the concentration is determined by referring to the results of the initial test (1900s) when it was established.

According to these results, the optimum concentration for disinfecion is 70-80 vol%, and it can be seen that the disinfection power decreases when the concentration is 60 vol% or less and 80 vol% or more.

Time to kill Staphylococcus aureus (minutes)

Our product, Powerful ethanol-based disinfectant, has the same ethanol content as disinfecting ethanol, so the same effect can be expected.

Disinfecting power and inactivation strength of ethanol

In addition, 70-80 vol% ethanol has been found to work against a wide range of bacteria and viruses.

Recent reports indicate that disinfection and virus elimination are possible even with low-concentration ethanol, but many reports show the results when contacted with ethanol for about 1 minute, which is not realistic.
