Types of Antiseptics: The differences between Betadine® Antiseptic First Aid Cream, Liquid Spray & Ointment

Betadine Antiseptic range

Betadine antiseptics contain povidone-iodine, which has broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity, helping inactivate bacteria commonly responsible for minor wound and skin infections.

The Betadine Antiseptics range includes:

Antiseptic liquid spray

Betadine Antiseptic Liquid Spray helps prevent infection of minor cuts, abrasions and is suitable for minor skin infections.

Available in an easy-to-use 75mL spray pack, Betadine Antiseptic liquid spray is ideal for tender wounds that are painful to touch such as blisters, grazes and mild burns.

Minor burns can be painful and there are countless items in the home that can cause a burn such as pans, kettles and ovens in the kitchen or hot water taps and hair straighteners in the bathroom. Keeping an antiseptic spray on hand can be a gentle no-touch way to help prevent infections of minor burns. Keep a bottle in the kitchen and the bathroom. The easy no mess application also makes it ideal for cuts on the sole of your foot. Keep it in a travel first aid kit for non-messy applications on the go.
