Povidone-Iodine 10% (equivalent to 1% available Iodine) in a buffered aqueous solution.
Povidone-Iodine is an iodophore in which Iodine is bound to the carrier molecule, Povidone. The complex, Povidone-Iodine, slowly liberates inorganic Iodine when in contact with the skin and mucous membranes. Only a small amount of Iodine is released at any one time, giving PovidoneIodine a lower irritant potential, and longer duration of microbiocidal action than conventional Iodine solutions. Povidone-Iodine has the antimicrobial spectrum of Iodine. It has broad spectrum activity; including bacteria, fungi, viruses, protozoa cysts and spores.
For antisepsis of minor cuts, wounds and abrasions and treatment of minor skin infections.
