Obstetric Care Lotion – Chlorhexidine Gluconate 1% – 50g is an antiseptic and disinfectant, which is effective against a wide range of vegetative Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms, some viruses and some fungi. It is ineffective against bacterial spores at room temperature, and acid-fast bacteria are inhibited but not killed. It is more active against Gram-positive than Gram-negative bacteria and some species of Pseudomonas and Proteus are relatively less susceptible. Chlorhexidine is most active at a neutral or slightly acid pH and its activity may be reduced by blood and other organic matter.
For disinfection or lubrication during gynaecological and obstetric procedures or childbirth.
