Pre-Surgical Scrub

This scrub has been formulated to control a diverse range of micro-organisms including: Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptoccus viridans, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans and Pseudamonas aeruginasa.


Active ingredient is the proven and trusted Chlorhexidine Gluconate 4% which is a membrane active agent whose major antibacterial action is through the interference with cell membrane biochemistry.

Hand disinfection using a “Pre Surgical Scrub” is routinely practiced to reduce the range of micro-organisms and subsequent cross contamination and is considered “safe practice”.

Additionally the care taken to dry hands after washing is highly relevant to controlling the level of bacteria contamination.

Use of Pre Surgical Scrubs can often lead to the dry out and damage of the skin epically around the hand and lower arm regions.
