Abstract

Background

Skin antisepsis occurs in every healthcare environment. From basic hand hygiene, to antiseptic bathing and pre surgical care with alcohol/chlorhexidine, use of antimicrobial agents to reduce the skin microflora has skyrocketed in the past several years. Although used in hopes of reducing the likelihood of infection in patients, many products have been identified as the source of infection in several outbreaks, sometimes due to the nonsterile nature of the many readily available antiseptics.

Did you know?

According to a recent report, intrinsic contamination of antiseptics could occur during the manufacturing process. A simple solution: sterilize the final product.5 Now, there are novel ways to sterilize products, which were previously considered difficult or impossible.5

We overcame this hurdle: Our patented process preserves the efficacy and purity of the antiseptic solution, without compromising the active ingredient.1,6
