Chlorhexidine digluconate

Chlorhexidine digluconate is used in select Pinnaclife Animal Health products as an antiseptic to fight off bacteria, yeast, and fungi that may infect wounds or the skin.

iStock_000014802868_FullChlorhexidine is a safe and effective FDA approved antiseptic used to decrease bioburden (the number of bacteria living on a surface that has not been sterilized) and reduce the risk of infection. Chlorhexidine is the preferred antimicrobial agent in many common products including contact lens solution, mouthwashes, antiseptics and even surgical scrubs.  It has efficacy against a wide variety of pathogens including gram +/- bacteria, yeast, and fungi.

An added benefit of chlorhexidine is that it binds with proteins on skin providing residual antimicrobial effects that can help extend the duration of antimicrobial protection for several hours.
