Here are the ADVANTAGES and DISADVANTAGES with this product:
.
.
ADVANTAGES
.
1. The active ingredient, chlorhexidine gluconate, is the ideal antiseptic skin cleanser - the "gold standard" in the opinion of numerous medical people. According to all available literature on the internet, a 2% solution kills a broad spectrum of micro-bacteria on contact. The chemical has a positive charge and binds to bacteria that is negatively charged. This electrical action weakens and disintegrates the bacterial cell membrane wall, thus destroying the organism. Because human and animal tissues are also negatively charge, the agent binds to the skin for the next five to six hours. As a result, the affected area inhibits bacterial growth.
. . . The antiseptic properties only affect organisms on the skin. ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS AND CHEMOTHERAPY's "Penetration of Chlorhexidine into Human Skin" reported "poor penetration of chlorhexidine into skin following 2 min. and 30 min. exposures to chlorhexidine was observed." In other words, the agent is relatively safe because it does not penetrate the skin and get absorbed into human tissue or the blood stream and cause damage or toxic chemical reactions.
.
2. Its effective antiseptic action was demonstrated in one medical study with chronically ill children. Daily bathing with the stuff reduced bacterial growth by 35%.
.
3. A 2% solution is the recommended concentration to be used for surgical scrubbing according to EPIC and CDC guidelines. This maybe an overkill for consumer usage. As a skin cleanser, THE JOURNAL OF INFECTIOUS NURSING reported that anything over a 0.5% concentration showed "no significant differences statistically, including persistent effects within 24 hours.

I've been buying this for several years to use to treat or prevent various mild skin infections both on my dog and myself. It is very mild and extremely effective. It can even be used around the mouth to prevent bad breath and prevent infections in the jowls or gums.

If you read the label of the Hibi_clens bottle at your local drug store, you'll notice that this chemical is the same thing, only about one-fourth as expensive. (By law, chemical ingredients must meet the same specifications, regarless of their source, so the notion that the same chemical works differently when it comes from a vet or a drug store or a vet supply is incorrect. It may be possible that the chemical supplied by the vet was 4% solution instead of 2%, however.

My dentist prescribes Peridex, an oral rinse, to kill germs in my mouth. The active ingredient is chlorhexadine gluconate. Peridex, by prescription only, is kind of expensive, like $21 for a pint. It lasts barely a month, then I must spend another $21. Since I have dental implants, it is important to use this product.

When I was in veterinary medical school, we had chlorhexadine gluconate in the gallon form, and we used it after giving dogs and cats dental treatments. We used the gluconate rather than the sulfate, because of the taste. So, recently, I looked for that gallon for my own use. To my glee, I found it was less than the pint of Peridex, but shipping and handling (8 pounds is a gallon), it came to just slightly more than the quart. The taste, while not bitter, isn't what I would call "good", but I can tolerate it, especially for just about the same price for a gallon that I pay for the prescription.

I happen to know that chlorhexadine is a hexachlorephine analog molecule...hexachlorephine was the active ingredient in Phisohex. Phisohex kills EVERYTHING, viruses, bacteria, and ricketsia (sp?). Unfortunately, some low intellect individual put Phisohex in baby powder. Some French babies got brain cancer after inhaling the powder so Phisohex was taken off the market. Chlorhexadine is quite a decent replacement and the chemical structure is very close to Phisohex, and it will do a number on acne.

Several complements from neighbors who used this. I find it effective on my pets. Be Careful the time of the year the item is ordered/shipped. My last bottle was shipped from Iowa. (check weather maps before ordering i.e., order early spring/late fall) to preserve strength of solution.

Minus 1 Star -- "Storage" Temperature removed from new container on the old
container, I believe it stated store between 46 F, and 86 F
"Store this product at controlled room temperature of 59°-86°F" see link
[...]

Be prudent when procured; Tractor Trailer (shipper UPS, USPS, FedEx) the inside of a trailer can reach or exceed 140 F, also they can reach freezing temperatures

Reference:

[...]
[...]

Minus 1/2 Star -- Directions on mixing state - used Distilled water or
Reverse Osmosis Water for mixing/dilution; When I mixed it with tap water
(after water softener)there was sediment bottom of the container
with the mixture with in a short time (couple of hours). When
mixed with Reverse Osmosis Water no sediment at the bottom of
container after mixing. Supposed to be used within 24 hours of mixing.

Minus 1/2 Star -- Per web site - should be in a opaque container not clear - store out of
sunlight
