Molnlycke Hibiclens Antiseptic Skin Cleanser User Instructions

  • Ingredients:

    Fragrance, isopropyl alcohol 4%, purified water, Red 40 and other ingredients in a mild, sudsing base adjusted to pH 5.0-6.5 for optimal activity and stability as well as compatibility with the normal pH of the skin

  • Safety:

    The extensive use of chlorhexidine gluconate for over 20 years outside the United States has produced no evidence of absorption of the compound through intact skin. The potential for producing skin reactions is extremely low. HIBICLENS can be used many times a day without causing irritation, dryness, or discomfort. Experimental studies indicate that when used for cleaning superficial wounds, HIBICLENS will neither cause additional tissue injury nor delay healing.
