- Chlorhexidine gluconate 40mg/ml (4% w/v) with a non-irritant detergent
- Antiseptic & disinfectant with broad spectrum antimicrobial activity (disrupts the plasma membrane of microbial cell) and sustained residual effect due to binding with skin proteins
- Contains a soaping agent so will lather up when used, facilitating debris removal
- Wound cleaning solution – add 40ml to 1L water and clean wounds directly; ensure any residual solution is washed off with clean water.
