What is an antiseptic and how does it differ from a disinfectant?

Both antiseptics and disinfectants prevent the growth of disease‐causing micro‐ organisms17. The main difference between the two is that disinfectants are usually used on inanimate objects (e.g. tables, floors, chairs) and antiseptics are more suitable for human skin17. For this very reason, BETADINE® Skin Cleanser has a higher grade of antiseptic with proven benefit to keep germs at bay1.
