Gentle and Effective.
An antiseptic, antimicrobial skin cleanser, HIBICLENS® gently and effectively cleanses skin and superficial wounds and can protect the skin for up to 24 hours1 after the initial application.2 It’s gentle on patient skin and as simple and easy to use as any liquid soap.3
HIBICLENS® contains 4% w/v chlorhexidine gluconate, with inactive ingredients: Fragrance, isopropyl alcohol 4%, purified water, Red 40, and other ingredients, in a mild, sudsing base adjusted to pH 5.0-6.5 for optimal activity and stability as well as compatibility with the normal pH of the skin.
The extensive use of chlorhexidine gluconate for over 30 years outside the United States has produced no evidence of absorption of the compound through intact skin.4 The potential for producing skin reactions is extremely low.3
Directions for use:
To use, thoroughly rinse the area to be cleansed with water. Apply the minimum amount of HIBICLENS® necessary to cover the skin or wound area and wash gently.
*Skin Wound and General Skin Cleansing Wounds, which involve more than the superficial layers of the skin should not be routinely treated with HIBICLENS®.
For external use only. Keep out of eyes, ears and mouth. HIBICLENS® should not be used as a preoperative skin preparation of the face or head. Misuse of HIBICLENS® has been reported to cause serious and permanent eye injury when it has been permitted to enter and remain in the eye during surgical procedures. If HIBICLENS® should contact these areas, rinse out promptly and thoroughly with water.
Avoid contact with meninges. HIBICLENS® should not be used by persons who have a sensitivity to it or its components. Chlorhexidine gluconate has been reported to cause deafness when instilled in the middle ear through perforated eardrums. Irritation, sensitization, and generalized allergic reactions have been reported with chlorhexidine-containing products, especially in the genital areas. If adverse reactions occur, discontinue use immediately and if severe, contact a physician. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. In case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.
Accidental ingestion: Chlorhexidine gluconate taken orally is poorly absorbed. Treat with gastric lavage using milk, egg white, gelatin or mild soap. Employ supportive measures as appropriate. Avoid excessive heat (above 104°F).
