What did you – and your kids – touch today?
Researchers have found that the average person comes in contact with 300 surfaces every 30 minutes, exposing them to 840,000 germs.1
That’s why families rely on Hibiclens, the antiseptic skin cleanser used in hospitals for over 40 years, to help protect their families from everyday germs. In fact, Hibiclens is the #1 pharmacist-recommended antibacterial soap. In a survey by Pharmacy Times and U.S. News & World Report, Hibiclens received almost 650,000 recommendations monthly by pharmacists.2
As simple and easy to use as any liquid soap,3 Hibiclens has been proven to be effective.4 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 contact5
- Continues killing germs for up to 24 hours6
- Proven to scientifically reduce bacteria and a range of common infections including salmonella and strep7
- Gentle enough for daily use8
When and how to use
In the home: Make Hibiclens a part of your daily routine by placing a bottle at each sink in your home. Younger children should be supervised when using Hibiclens and it should be kept out of eyes, ears and mouth.
Away from home: Experts point out that stairway handrails, elevator buttons and even restaurant menus are often more contaminated with germs than a bathroom.1 Make it a habit to wash your hands with Hibiclens before heading out, throughout the day, and when you come home.
Seasonal and activities: There are certain times in our lives when we may feel more susceptible to germs. Hibiclens can help add peace of mind that you and your family are protected. Choose Hibiclens for:
- Back to school
- Cold and flu season
- Visiting a hospital or nursing home
- Working out at the gym
Refer to Drug Facts label for full directions for use and indications.
How do I use Hibiclens?
Generally speaking, use Hibiclens as you would use other liquid soaps with a few minor changes. For general skin cleansing: 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. Rinse thoroughly. Be sure to keep out of eyes, ears and mouth, and do not use in the genital area.
