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

Both antiseptic and disinfectant prevent the growth of disease‐causing micro‐ organisms45. The main difference between the two is that disinfectants are usually used on inanimate object (e.g. tables, floors, chairs) and antiseptics are more suitable for human skin45.

Antiseptics are used as a treatment for cuts, scratches, burns, grazes or other injuries where the skin is broken, or as a preventive measure before piercing the skin (e.g. getting an ear piercing, having an injection or undergoing surgery). For this very reason, BETADINE® has a wide range of antiseptic formats for your different needs.

How do I choose the right antiseptic?

Like any medicinal product, there has to be a balance between efficacy and safety profile. You should not use an antiseptic that kills all germs but causes a skin reaction or affect wound healing. On the other hand, an antiseptic that is gentle on the skin or on wounds but does not kill a wide range and amount of germs will not prevent infection and may even prolong the wound healing process.12

Why is BETADINE® brown in colour?

The active ingredient in BETADINE®, povidone‐iodine, is naturally a golden brown colour. It will not stain your skin, fingernails or hair, although you can see where it’s been applied on the skin3.

If you accidentally get BETADINE® on natural fibres it can usually be easily washed off with water and soap. For man‐made fibres, BETADINE® can usually be washed off with the help of a stain remover.

CAUTION: Immediately remove spills from plastic floors.
