It’s important to practice proper hand hygiene during outbreaks of infection, in high-risk areas and after contact with body fluids or infectious materials6. This helps to reduce the spread of infection. Since the skin is a common source of infection transmission, the use of BETADINE® Skin Cleanser for hand disinfection can be recommended7. The recommended time spent to wash your hands by healthcare professionals is 30 to 60 seconds and BETADINE® Skin Cleanser is able to kill germs within that recommended time frame.
Both antiseptics and disinfectants prevent the growth of disease‐causing micro‐ organisms17. The main difference between the two is that disinfectants are usually used on inanimate objects (e.g. tables, floors, chairs) and antiseptics are more suitable for human skin17. For this very reason,BETADINE® Skin Cleanser has a higher grade of antiseptic with proven benefit to keep germs at bay1
BETADINE® Skin Cleanser contains 7.5% povidone-iodine which is proven to kill germs such as bacteria, viruses and fungi, including resistant strains10-18. Its efficacy is not affected by blood, pus, soap or hard water14.
BETADINE® Skin Cleanser is not recommended for regular every day use like you would use soap and body foam. However, you may use it on a daily basis during high-risk periods to protect against infections. BETADINE® Skin Cleanser is to manage the spread of infections on a regular basis.
