New Formulation + Climbazole

Douxo Chlorhexidine has a strong bactericidal and bacteriostatic activity on the Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria. Climbazole is an imidazole compound active on most pathogenic fungi and yeasts (Malassezia pachydermatis). Phytosphingosine – salicyloyl is a modified pro-ceramide which possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-seborrheic properties. It helps control the cutaneous disorders associated with pyoderma. Both the antibacterial and antifungal activities of the lipo-amino-acid complement those of chlorhexidine. The Lipacid also acts as a moisturizing and restructuring agent by allowing a lipo-protidic film to deposit on the skin. This long-lasting film resists rinsing, and thus protects the skin from irritations and loss of moisture. The formula of DOUXO® Chlorhexidine is suitable for frequent use.
