Chlorhexidine Gluc 2% Tinted Pink



A hospital grade disinfectant for use on hard surfaces e.g. floors and walls.


Chlorhexidine gluconate 20g/L in alcohol 70% v/v, tinted pink.

Chlorhexidine is a disinfectant which is effective against a wide range of vegetative Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. It is ineffective against acid-fast bacteria, bacterial spores, fungi and viruses. It is more active against Gram-positive than Gram-negative bacteria, and some species of Pseudomonas and Proteus are relatively less susceptible. Chlorhexidine is most active at a neutral or slightly alkaline pH and its activity is reduced by blood and other organic matter.

Alcohol has bactericidal actions against most vegetative organisms. It is not effective against viruses and spores. It acts relatively quickly to denature cellular proteins of microorganisms and lower their surface tension, thus facilitating their removal. It also has useful solvent properties and will dissolve many water-insoluble substances including sebum.
