"This CHG formulation delivers strong germ kill as well as an unexpected mildness not usually associated with CHG handwashes and surgical scrubs. We know hand hygiene plays a critical role in protecting patient safety and reducing germ transmission, but practicing good hand hygiene can be difficult on your hands when you are not using the right products. This is why we continue to advance the science of hand hygiene and develop products that are efficacious and maintain skin health. This newest formulation is an example of this commitment."
