Do any hand sanitizers contain any amount of sulfur?
Karen from New York
I bought a bottle of hand sanitizer from one of the dollar stores and here are the ingredients printed on the label.
Ethyl Alcohol 62%
Deionized Water, Isopropyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Propylene Glycol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance, Alphatocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E)

There are many people who confuse Sulfur with Sulfa. There is a class of antibiotics with sulfa- for the beginning of their name, like sulfamethazine and sulfabendazole (sulpha was the older spelling). Sulfur is a natural atom like oxygen or water, some sulfur compounds smell stinky including farts. Whether or not sulfur is toxic depends on what compound the atom occurs in. All body tissues contain some sulfur compounds. Learn all you can about any allergies you have. Hope this helps!
