Description for Hibiscrub Antibacterial Skin Cleanser

The HibiScrub Antibacterial Skin Cleanser is a hospital standard wash that lasts for up to 6 hours to give you peace of mind. The antiseptic is effective against a wide range of bacteria, yeasts, dermatophyte fungi and lipophilic viruses and provides a protective layer to reduce your risk of acquiring harmful bacteria and an infection.

Product Information

  • Age: 2 years +

    Maximum per order: N/A

  • Pregnancy: Suitable

    Breastfeeding: Suitable

 Hibiscrub- An effective hospital-strength disinfectant and antiseptic which can also be used at home, Hibiscrub is effective against bacteria, lilophilic viruses, yeasts and dermatophyte fungi. Containing the active ingredient, Chlorhexidine gluconate 4% w/v, this antimicrobial formula is effective against MRSA and is used for surgical hand disinfection before operations. It is also used for pre-operative and post-operative skin antisepsis and also hand washing on the ward. Recommended to outpatients for use in their own homes as a post-operative care routine, the chlorhexidine gluconate creates a secondary layer of protection on the skin surface, which is so binding that it kills bacteria after scrubbing and prevents tissues such as mucosa from being fully absorbed into the skin.

By using Hibiscrub for a whole body wash before entering hospital for treatment or an operation, harmful bacteria can be removed, which will minimise any chance of contracting infections. Hibiscrub can also be used by women who are pregnant or who are breastfeeding.

Hibiscrub Antimicrobial Skin Cleanser can reduce the chances of both swine flu and MRSA and can be used on your face and hair but take care not to get this cleanser into your eyes or ears, as it is for external use only.


Pharmacist Tip

Hibiscrub does not easily absorb into the skin but binds to the surface where, working as an antimicrobial agent, it kills bacteria, viruses, yeasts and fungi. Lasting up to 6 hours after use, Hibiscrub gives peace of mind.
