Skin Disinfectants for Professional Skin Disinfection
Skin disinfection is carried out to counteract the possibility of germ transmission from injections, punctures or invasive operations. The application of skin disinfectant reduces or eliminates transient and resident skin flora. When it comes to skin disinfection, special skin disinfectants are used, which are either applied as a spray or with sterile swabs.
In order to achieve an efficient absence of germs, it is important to exactly note the activation time of the skin disinfectant and to keep the skin moist while the disinfectant works. Skin disinfectants are typically colourless. However, there are coloured skin disinfectants that are used to simultaneously disinfect the skin and mark the operation field prior to a surgery.
Most skin disinfectants are alcohol based, yet do not contain relipidising or nourishing substances. This is also not necessary, as skin disinfection is typically not carried out very often. In addition to skin disinfectant sprays, there are also disinfecting wipes designed for skin disinfection, but which are also often used for sanitizing hands or disinfecting surfaces.
