Hibiclens –
skin protection for caregivers

Protect those you care for – and yourself – with Hibiclens, the #1 pharmacist-recommended antibacterial soap.8

Caring for others – and yourself

There are millions of people caring for adults and children in their lives, in fact, there were approximately 43.5 million unpaid caregivers in 2015.1 Often, those receiving care are at greater risk of infection and germs due to weakened immune systems.

With Hibiclens, home caregivers can use the same hospital-quality antiseptic skin cleanser that’s been trusted by healthcare providers for more than 40 years. Hibiclens is gentle enough for daily use2 but strong enough to begin killing germs on contact,3 and continues working for up to 24 hours.4

Only Hibiclens

As simple and easy to use as any liquid soap,5 Hibiclens has been proven to be effective.6

In addition to binding to the skin and leaving a layer of protection (without any sticky residue), Hibiclens is:

  • Fast-acting – begins killing germs on contact3
  • Continues killing germs for up to 24 hours4
  • Proven to protect against a wide range of bacteria, including staph, strep, salmonella and E. coli6 7
  • Gentle enough for daily use2

When and how to use

Make Hibiclens a part of your daily routine by placing bottles at each sink in your house and in the room where your patients reside. It can be used as a hand wash as well as bed baths.

Your patient may benefit mentally and physically from a bed bath. Daily bed bathing provides the opportunity to evaluate skin integrity, promotes range of motion and can also improve the patient’s self-image and comfort.7

Note that Hibiclens should be kept out of eyes, ears and mouth.
