About this item

Highlights

  • Begins killing germs on contact and provides lasting protection (1)
  • #1 dermatologist and pharmacist recommended antibacterial soap (2)
  • Great for hand hygiene
  • Gentle enough for everyday use (3)
  • Hibiclens is antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobial

Description

Hibiclens has been trusted by health care providers for over 40 years as a pre/post-operative antiseptic skin cleanser to help reduce the risk of infection. It’s strong enough to kill germs that live on the skin but gentle enough for routine family handwashing. Unlike regular soaps, Hibiclens not only begins killing germs immediately (1), it bonds safely with the skin and keeps on killing germs, even after washing. Its active ingredient, chlorhexidine gluconate provides extended protection against a wide range of bacteria that can cause infections (4) and leaves no sticky residue.

Whether you’re using it daily to protect your family from germs that live on the skin or as part of a pre/post-operative washing plan, you can trust Hibiclens! Make Hibiclens a part of your daily routine by keeping a bottle at sinks in your home, and make it a habit to wash your hands with it before heading out.

Hibiclens is for use only on the skin. Do not apply this medicine to deep cuts, scrapes, or open skin wounds. To use Hibiclens soap, apply only enough to cover the area you are treating. Wash the area gently, then rinse thoroughly with plain water. Please refer to Hibiclens Drug Facts label for full directions for use and indications.

Q: can this be used in a foaming dispenser?

submitted by Sri - 9 months ago
  • A: You can transfer Hibiclens from the 8oz bottle to a Hibiclens 16oz foam pump container. Please only transfer between Hibiclens bottles and do not add to another foam pump. We cannot guarantee efficacy with a non Hibiclens container as we would not have stability testing with other materials. -Hibiclens Team

Q: Is the bottle not sealed? I noticed a red stain on the box, so I opened it to see the red product had run all over the bottle and inner box. I unscrewed the cap and there was no (broken) seal inside.

Great antibiotic soap, highly recommend it for cleansing new and old piercings. Your piercing will heal amazingly fast, also heals that piercing bump that some get on their nose piercings. Iykyk add this to your cleansing routine if you feel it’s not healing correctly or just for extra care.

I stumbled across this product just browsing on Target.com. After reading reviews about others saying this helped with acne, I thought I’d give it a try. This absolutely wow’d me! They were so right! I finally found something that helps with my adult acne! I haven’t had a new breakout since using this and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry. I will continue to use and would recommend. Thanks to all the reviewers that helped me find this product.

Mickie - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
It worked great as the pre-surgical wash that I was instructed to do. The liquid is very thin but does the job just fine. I will be sure to buy more for my next surgery that I have to get done next year. Other reviewers kept mentioning the mystery leak inside the box. This happens because the actual bottle is not sealed, the box packaging that the bottle is in is sealed, so that’s the mystery solved.

I have an issue where my armpits smell like BO no matter how clean I am and despite using antiperspirant deodorant. I started using this daily in my armpits only and now I don't stink. Deodorant actually works now and I hardly smell even if I don't use it. Love this stuff!

I have used the same bottle for years now. There is PLENTY in the bottle for surgery when washing day before and after. On my most recent surgery, I washed my back with the wash and within only 2 washes my acne was significantly less. Even helped to heal old scars from acne. I’ve used it 4 times on my back and 95% of my acne is gone. I have been trying to get rid of it for 6M+ with different creams, washed, anything and nothing worked, until now. Will be the only thing I use!!!
