When it comes to germ protection, Hibiclens has you covered. Its active ingredient, chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG), gently bonds to the skin to leave a layer of lasting protection, even after rinsing. Hard on germs, kind on skin! Hibiclens is gentle enough for routine handwashing, even while it begins killing germs on contact. It?s also the #1 dermatologist recommended antibacterial soap.
