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 antiseptic reduces or eliminates transient and resident skin flora. For this purpose, special disinfectants are used that 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 disinfectant and to keep the treated area moist while it works. Skin disinfectants are typically colourless. However, there are also coloured antiseptics that are used to simultaneously disinfect the skin and mark the operation field prior to performing an operation.
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 antiseptic sprays, there are also disinfecting wipes designed for skin disinfection, but which are also often used for sanitising hands or disinfecting surfaces.
