About Product

Buy HiBiScrub online UK

HiBiScrub is an antiseptic and antibacterial body wash. It is often used in hospitals on pre-operative and post-operative patients, as an alternative to povidone-iodine, to prevent infection. Health professionals may use HiBiScrub to disinfect their hands before an operation or while working on a ward.

HiBiScrub can also be used at home by pro-operative and post-operative patients to reduce their risk of infection. You may be asked to wash yourself with HiBiScrub on the day of an operation.

You can buy HiBiScrub online today from Prescription Doctor's trusted UK based pharmacy. Our pharmacy team will dispense and dispatch the treatment to your preferred address via a next-day discreet courier service.

How does HiBiScrub work?

HiBiScrub contains an antiseptic agent known as chlorhexidine. Chlorhexidine destroys bacterial cells by damaging the protective membrane. By damaging the cell membrane, the contents of the cell spill out, thus killing the cell and ridding it from the skin, preventing the risk of infection.

When applied to the skin, chlorhexidine binds to the skin and forms a protective layer. HiBiScrub remains active on the skin for up to 6 hours, providing lasting protection from microbes such as bacteria and viruses.

Chlorhexidine, the active ingredient of HiBiScrub, is also used in some mouthwashes, such as Corsodyl, due to its germicidal properties.


How to use HiBiScrub?

HiBiScrub can be used like a shampoo or a shower gel.

Apply 25ml HiBiScrub to a wash cloth. Wash your whole body, starting from your head and working downwards.

Make sure to pay attention to areas around the nose, under the arms, around the belly button, between the legs and around the bottom.

Rinse your whole body and repeat the process. This time, use HiBiScrub like a shampoo and watch your hair too.

Rinse your body again and dry yourself with a clean, dry towel.

If you are using HiBiScrub after an operation, you should wash your whole body excluding the site of the operation.

HiBiScrub is for external use only and should not be used in orifices such as the nostrils or ears.
