Clinisept+ FAQs

What is the difference between Clinisept+ Prep & Procedure and Clinisept+ Aftercare?

Clinisept+ Prep & Procedure, and Clinisept+ Aftercare use exactly the same chemistry.

Clinisept+ Prep and Procedure has a dropper top for professional use in clinic. It is usually poured into a disposable galipot for use with a sterile gauze.

Clinisept+ Aftercare is a ‘take home’ product for use by the patient once they have left the clinic. The finely atomising spray head enables clients to maintain high levels of hygiene over a treated area, without touching the skin.


How should the Clinisept+ products be used?

Prior to using Clinisept+ products ensure the skin is clean and free from make-up.

Clinisept+ Prep & Procedure is intended for use by a clinician before, during and after all procedures to cleanse the skin and to ensure aseptic conditions are maintained. It should be applied by soaking a pad or gauze and wiping onto the skin. The whole area to be treated should be thoroughly wetted with Clinisept+ Prep & Procedure. Because Clinisept+ causes no irritation, it can be re-applied during and after the procedure to maintain high levels of hygiene throughout.

Clinisept+ Aftercare, should be used by the patient following all procedures that have caused damage to the dermis. It should be applied two to three times a day, until the treated area has completely recovered. It can be applied by spraying on directly or by soaking a pad or gauze and wiping onto the skin.


What is the active ingredient in Clinisept+?

The active ingredient in Clinisept+ is sodium hypochlorite. A patent pending chemical process is used to trigger a chemical disassociation which converts the hypochlorite into an ultra-pure, stabilised hypochlorous solution. In fact, Clinisept+ has been proven to contain more than 90% pure hypochlorous – far exceeding the purity of any competitor product claiming to contain hypochlorous.


What is hypochlorous?

Hypochlorous is the same chemistry that powers the human immune system. It is produced by the white blood cells in the body to combat infection and is widely acknowledged as the most effective disinfection agent known, owing to its ability to kill bacteria, viruses, fungi and spores.


How can Clinisept+ be so effective at killing pathogens, and yet safe to human skin?

Clinisept+ is highly effective at penetrating the cell walls of pathogens but is not absorbed by human skin cells. It has a skin neutral pH and contains no alcohol, petroleum, lanolin, oils or parabens. It is non-toxic and non-irritant to human skin and is even non-cytotoxic to human skin cells.


How does Clinisept+ differ from traditional skin disinfectants?

Most disinfectants intended for use on skin, are weak poisons.  Whilst they can be effective at killing some pathogens, they also affect healthy skin cells and inhibit skin regeneration. Clinisept+ is different in that it uses an oxidising method of action which causes no harm to human skin, even to re-growing skin cells.


What are the benefits of using Clinisept+ vs other skin disinfectants?

Clinisept+ has several in use benefits: In clinic, its primary purpose is to clean and provide antimicrobial protection, (both to patient and clinic staff). However, Clinisept+ is also highly effective in reducing redness and oedema, (swelling), and provides a cooling sensation to treated skin.

When used following a procedure as an aftercare, Clinisept+ keeps treated areas clean and unencumbered from the pathogens that inhibit skin health, resulting high quality and rapid skin recovery.


What cautions apply to Clinisept+?

Clinisept+ products are very safe to use and have been proven non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-irritant to skin and non-irritant to eyes. Follow the instructions for usage on the bottle and keep out of the reach of children.


Are there any contraindications when using Clinisept+?

No. Clinisept+ has been subjected to comprehensive dermatological testing and has been found to cause no contraindications.


How do you store Clinisept+?

Clinisept+ should be stored out of the reach of children and away from direct sunlight. If you wish to enhance its cooling sensation it can be kept in the fridge if desired.
