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: 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.

  • A: Hello. The FDA doesn’t require sealing on Hibiclens, unless sold at retail. Because the same bottles are used at retail and in healthcare facilities, we place the bottles in tamper-evident sealed cartons for retail stores. We apologize for the leaking you experienced. If you would like to be contacted by our product complaint team, please send an email to complaints.us@molnlycke.com.

Q: Can this product we used to clean the female genitalia/butt cheeks

submitted by ak2001 - 6 months ago
  • A: We advise to keep Hibiclens away from genital areas due to potential sensitivity and irritation. Doctors occasionally recommend using Hibiclens in these areas, but that would be under guidance from the physician. If you have specific concerns, please consult with a healthcare provider.

Q: Can this be used to clean adult toys?

submitted by shaina - 9 months ago
  • A: Hibiclens’ active ingredient (chlorhexidine) works by gently binding with the skin to eliminate germs that live on skin. Because there is no evidence that chlorhexidine has efficacy on surfaces beyond skin, we can not recommend it to clean toys or other hard surfaces.

Q: For showering pre-surgery, how many uses do you get from the 1 bottle? I'm supposed to shower with it night before and morning of, do I need 2 bottles?

submitted by Steph - 2 years ago

If you have additional questions or concerns, please reach out to your health care provider. Best of luck with your upcoming surgery.

I have HS (hidradenitis supporitiva) and although this won't make it go away - it's not a curable disease - it does definitely help with keeping my flare ups minimal, less painful, and odor free. Highly recommend!

Bottle leaks

ssspa - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
My surgeon instructed me to use Hibiclens for presurgery showers. So I ordered two 8oz flip tops of Hibiclens from Target. When I received them, both bottles had leaked in the Hibiclens boxes. There was red liquid dried on the outside of the bottle, inside the box, and outside the box. The product was not damaged during shipping. No way I was going to use this for my pre-surgery. Luckily, I was able to get Hibiclens packets from my surgeon’s office. I returned the defective product to Target for a full refund. Apparently from reviews on other websites, this is a common problem.

No Clue About Long Term Impact & Havent Looked At Ingredients, Which I usually Do. But I Needed It For Someone & The Situation Didnt Leave Time To Be Picky About Possible Synthetic Crappy Ingredients. BUT, I Can Say That It Does An Excellent Job Healing Wounds In A Short Amount Of Time. Excellent Is An Understatement.

I was having an issue with my underarm smell. By the middle of the day I was embarrassed because of the odor. I’ve tried so many different deodorants. I saw on TikTok Someone mentioned they used this. It’s been a week since I started using this to wash my underarms and what a difference I’ve notice, hardly any odor!!!!

Honestly though this was more of a substance you can just blot on but it is more like a strong soap. Just keep that in mind and I’m sure it’ll work for what you need it for.
