Here’s how to protect them.
What is an antiseptic and how does it differ from a disinfectant?
 

Both antiseptics and disinfectants prevent the growth of disease-causing micro-organisms. The main difference between the two is that disinfectants are usually used on non-living things (e.g. tables, floors, chairs) and antiseptics are more suitable for human skin.

 

Antiseptics are used as a treatment for cuts, scratches, burns, grazes or other injuries where the skin is broken, or as a preventive measure before piercing the skin (e.g. getting an ear piercing, having an injection or undergoing surgery). For this very reason, BETADINE® has a wide range of antiseptic formats for your different needs.

How do I choose the right antiseptic?
 

Like any medicinal product, there has to be a balance between effectiveness and safety profile. Refrain from using an antiseptic that kills all germs but causes a skin reaction or affects wound healing. On the other hand, select an antiseptic that is gentle on the skin or on wounds but does not kill a wide range and amount of germs will not prevent infection and may even prolong the wound healing process.

Why is it important to use an antiseptic when you first experience an injury?
 

The main reason for using antiseptics on wounds is to prevent and treat infections, making the healing process faster. Infections can cause delays and prevent healing, or even worsen the wound condition.

How does BETADINE® prevent wound infection?

Unlike most antiseptics, BETADINE® uses a povidone-iodine solution to rapidly kill the bacteria, viruses and fungi that cause wound infections. BETADINE® antiseptic is relatively free of irritation or stinging, making it easier to use on your kids, in comparison with other alcohol antiseptics!

Why is BETADINE® brown in colour?

The active ingredient in BETADINE®, povidone-iodine, is naturally a golden brown colour. It will not stain your skin, fingernails or hair, although you can see where it’s been applied on the skin.

 

If you accidentally get BETADINE® on natural fibres it can usually be easily washed off with water and soap. For man-made fibres, BETADINE® can usually be washed off with the help of a stain remover.

 

CAUTION: Immediately remove spills from plastic floors.
