Octenidine HCL is a completely safe component with fast acting and long-lasting antimicrobial effect. It is also suitable for small children, pregnant or breastfeeding women. It is very well tolerated.
Unlike alcohol, the antimicrobial substance Octenidine does not evaporate from the skin surface and remains active for a much longer time.
Panthenol is the alcohol analog of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and is thus a provitamin of B5. In organisms, it is quickly oxidized to pantothenic acid. Panthenol helps to hydrate the skin, keeping moisture in. It also helps to calm the skin.
