Im just a bit confused since, i am trying to learn french and on the 7th or 8th question, it said hand sanitizer is gel hydracoolique, but ive never heard such a word! I dont know, im just a bit confused since, for new people at french, this word (i dont think) shouldn't be used, since i am getting better and better each day, but again, ive never heard this word, nor seen it, for that matter. I dont want to be a pain, but i think this shouldn't be used.

Karina - it is normal to come across words you don’t know and not just when you start learning a language !
As long as you understand around 80% of what you are encountering, you are both consolidating and learning.
No pun intended, but ‘gel hydroalcoolique’ is very ‘topical’ in this peri-pandemic era.
A good bilingual dictionary helps, and in cases like this a quick search to find its usage online is helpful.
