Safety instructions of the product safety data sheet.

Note

If you have previously experienced hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to the ingredients in the product, in particular the active substance (chlorhexidine digluconate), the product is not recommended for use.
When using the product for the first time or you suspect hypersensitivity, test suitability on a small area of skin. Apply the foam on 3x3 cm area below the elbow. If skin irritation (redness, unpleasant sensation, or skin rash) occurs soon after application, do not use the product.

Simultaneous use of soap, washing liquids or shampoo should be avoided, as these products contain anionic surfactants that reduce the microbiocidal effect of the product. The microbicidal active ingredient chlorhexidine is ototoxic and neurotoxic.
Chlorhexidine and sodium hypochlorite (as well as other chlorine compounds) together result in discoloration of textile materials.

It is adviseable for health care personnel to use protective gloves (e.g. Nitrile rubber or PVC, according to standard EN 374), where skin contact is often repeated.
