BactiScrub – Pre-Operative deep skin cleansing

The first 4% chlorhexidine antiseptic soapy gel. The gel format ensures an accurate dosing in each application and reinforces retention onto the skin

The 4% Chlorhexidine antiseptic soapy gel contains pro-vitamin B5 for deep skin cleansing, care and hydration. It is the first product of its kind in a gel format which allows for a greater skin absorption of the chlorhexidine.

It is a convenient option for a decolonising patient skin wash before surgery, or for those cleaning patients carrying multi-resistant bacteria. It is also recommended for the pre-surgical scrubbing of healthcare personnel’s hands and forearms.

Its composition without anionic surfactants cares and moisturises skin. Furthermore, the higher adhesion of the product enhances the sustained effect of chlorhexidine on the patients’ skin.

Applications

  • Antiseptic washing and decolonisation for patients’ skin prior to surgery.
  • Pre-surgical antiseptic scrub for hands and forearms of healthcare personnel.

Instructions for use

  • Wet the skin ideally in the shower.
  • Apply BactiScrub without diluting, directly to the wet skin, washing all the body, avoiding contact with the eyes, ears and mouth.
  • Leave the solution on the skin for about 3 minutes to assure antiseptic absorption. Rinse off and dry the skin.  Once the skin is washed, do not apply any other bathing products, lotions, moisturisers or makeup, since they can reduce the effectiveness of chlorhexidine.

Composition

  • Chlorhexidine digluconate 4.0 g/100 ml.
  • Non-ionic surfactants.  Emollients (Panthenol or Vitamin B5), excipients and water.
