According to the CDC, 60% alcohol content is sufficient to kill viruses. Providing that ethyl alcohol is considered 95% pure, it allows that formulas need to be at least 63% ethyl alcohol to reach the required 60%. Some sources use the WHO, which recommends 70%. This product began as a 60% total volume to conform with the CDC and has now progressed to a 65%. Meaning the percentage of ethyl alcohol in overall formulation is now 68%, that increases the bottom-line content to 65%.
Another active ingredient in the lotion is Salicylic Acid. This is for bacterial kill and not viral. RSC has used this effectively in formulas and feels inclusion adds to the overall effectiveness against minor cuts and scrapes. The fresh citrus is added for a boost in cleansing and to provide the RAW fresh smell that is associated with RSC products.
Everything more is used to produce the product itself and create a moisturizing lotion base as best we can achieve with the alcohol content that is required. The pricing discounts must be moved from the 30% back to 20% for this increase in ethyl alcohol and RSC is allowing for as deep a discount as possible.
