Product Details

It's 3 products in 1! Avagard™ Surgical and Healthcare Personnel Hand Antiseptic combines alcohol for rapid kill, Chlorhexidine Gluconate for persistence plus emollients for skin conditioning.

We developed 3M™Avagard™ Surgical and Healthcare Personnel Hand Antiseptic as a waterless, brushless surgical scrub and health care personnel hand wash. It is the only FDA NDA-approved hand antiseptic that contains two active ingredients, alcohol for rapid kill and Chlorhexidine Gluconate for persistent, cumulative activity. This innovative hand antiseptic does not require water or a brush to achieve its bactericidal effect. It also uses our propreitary, emollient rich lotion base to help prevent dry, cracked skin. This advanced formula protects and maintains skin barrier integrity. Avagard Surgical Hand Antiseptic is also dye and fragrance free as well as latex glove compatible. The fast drying formula minimizes wait time and its residual effect keeps killing bacteria. After millions of surgeries, you can trust Avagard™ Surgical Hand Antiseptic It kills a broad spectrum of microbes including antibiotic-resistant strains, and is proven to provide a greater than 99% microbial kill in 15 seconds in vitro{1}. No wonder Avagard™ Surgical Hand Antiseptic is the #1 surgical hand antiseptic in U.S. hospitals{2}. AORN recommends an “alcohol and chlorhexidine product” that is fast-drying and has residual effect. According to AORN, Chlorhexidine Gluconate with alcohol provides excellent persistent/residual activity. (AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices, July 2009). Persistence is important because organisms can thrive in the warm, moist environment under gloves, and gloves have been shown to sustain damage during procedures. Avagard Surgical Hand Antiseptic is proven to suppress microbial regrowth for up to 6 hours, with immediate and sustained activity over time{1}. With gentle moisturizers, Avagard Surgical Hand Antiseptic can be used for the first, and every scrub of the day. Hands are the most common source of pathogen transmission so naturally they are at the center of the challenge to reduce healthcare associated infections. We approached the challenge of hand hygiene, understanding that in order for any product to be effective, it would also need to be gentle enough to promote repeated and frequent use. Over 10 years after the original 3M™ Avagard™ Surgical Hand Antiseptic was launched, we continue to add new hand hygiene formulations to help reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections. Our goal is simple; to provide the effective products and support needed for this persistent challenge. 1. Data on file, 3M Health Care. 2. Global healthcare Exchange (Q32013). i. video
