Overview: What is Hibiclens?

Hibiclens Skin Cleanser is an antiseptic skin cleanser that removes germs from the hands and body to prevent infection and reduce the spread of germs and bacteria. The family of Molnlycke Hibiclens Antibacterial Soap products provides a variety of sizes for healthcare professionals and the public to have a defense against germs and stop the spread of disease. Its powerful formula effectively kills bacteria on contact and will continue to defend the skin for up to 24 hours.

How Hibiclens Works

The formula contains active ingredient Chlorhexidine Gluconate, CHG, that effectively kills bacteria, even staph. Hibiclens solution is gentle on the skin and is less irritating than isopropyl alcohol that can leave the skin dry and cracked. Antibacterial soaps and alcohol-based hand sanitizers don't leave a lasting defense that CHG offers. After washing with Hibiclens soap, the CHG bonds with the skin to continue to kill microorganisms for up to 24 hours. For this reason, it's used for pre and post-operative skin preparation to prevent infection.

Uses: Who Can Benefit from Hibiclens?

The world is full of germs and microorganisms waiting to attach to the body. Continued susceptibility makes Hibiclens liquid soap ideal for a variety of applications and uses because of its ongoing protection after washing.

  • General Public
  • Regular handwashing is extremely important. This formula is effective on tough microorganisms with the ability to be gentle on the skin for daily use. A Hibiclens regimen is helpful when traveling, attending school, in a public setting, and particularly when it's cold and flu season.

  • Healthcare Workers
  • Hibiclens Antimicrobial Skin Cleanser has been used for more than 40 years in the healthcare industry. The Hibiclens gallon is ideal to maintain supply in hospitals and clinics. It's also used as a surgical scrub to prepare the patient's skin to reduce infection at the surgical site.

  • Patients – Pre and Post-Operative
  • Before and after surgery, washing with Hibiclens Antiseptic Skin Cleanser is a common practice to eliminate bacteria. It prepares the skin before surgery and continues to give the skin the best line of defense when caring for a surgical site.

  • Athletes
  • Gym equipment, contact with other athletes, and gym locker rooms expose athletes and gym-goers to staph. Washing daily with Hibiclens is a preventative measure in these tough environments.

  • Non-Ambulatory Patients

The skin is the first line of defense making it critical to maintain its integrity by washing with this antisceptic. Pressure points on the body can irritate the skin leaving it susceptible to bacteria and infection. Daily washing with Hibiclens keeps patients feeling their best while providing a preventative protocol against infection.
