Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and Ethyl Alcohol/ENA are used in Hand Sanitizer

Two kinds of alcohols are used in Hand Sanitizer - Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and Ethyl Alcohol/ENA. First one, IPA is preferred.

I was checking what else is used in Sanitizers and disinfectants after this post where I have mentioned Ethyl Alcohol.

We have bad luck in selecting companies for Isopropyl Alcohol as this is only produced by Deepak Fertilizers. The IPA was only 8% of total revenue in first nine months of FY20. Also, this company is not looking very good seeing other statements. Big part of isopropyl alcohol are imported. So, only Ethyl Alcohol based Sanitizer will give benefits to our companies in India which are generally produced by Sugar Companies.
