The product description reads as, ”Distilled Cow Urine, obtained from Indigenous cows is gelled with aromatic essential oil and Gangajal to make antiseptic Cowpathy Alcohol free Hand Sanitizer.”
Further, numerous qualities of the sanitizer is listed as below:
Cow Urine is antiseptic, detoxifies, heals wounds, hydrates skin
Vegan Product Doesn’t Dry skin
Smells Aromatic Essential oil on every wash. (Doesn’t smell Cow Urine)

However, the product won’t really serve our purpose because it’s alcohol free. The Centre for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDCP), has clearly said that only those hand sanitizers, that have at least 60 per cent of alcohol can kill nCoV-19 microbes. And this particular hand sanitizer which is alcohol-free, will not be able to protect us from the virus.
The product has been on Amazon since 2018 but recently got popular due to Coronavirus.
