Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) General Skin Cleansing Kit

Ecolab's conveniently packaged 4% CHG General Skin Cleansing Kit promotes compliance while providing exceptional efficacy.


Conveniently Packaged

  • Includes one 4 oz. bottle of Scrub-Stat 4% CHG Solution and two individually wrapped, polyester cloths; ideal for two applications
  • Individual wrapping prevents risk of cross-contamination between uses, and polyester material reduces likelihood of CHG binding to the cloth (which could reduce concentration of active ingredient)
  • Ideal for your outpatient and inpatient skin cleansing needs

Promotes Compliance

  • Seminal research cited by the CDC has shown that two CHG skin cleanses prior to surgery reduced bacterial colony counts nine-fold1
  • The CDC, AORN and Joint Commission include antiseptic skin cleansing as a tool in the overall strategy to reduce SSIs123
  • Scrub Stat 4% contains emollients that reduce the potential for skin irritation

Exceptional Efficacy

  • CHG rapidly and persistently kills transient and resident microorganisms on the skin
  • Inhibits skin microflora regrowth for up to 6 hours to help lower risk of nosocomial infections
  • Several independent studies have shown that CHG skin cleansing may help reduce the risk of SSIs4, MRSA5, VRE5, C. Diff 6, CLABSI7
