Congratulations Maine Mendoza another feather in the cap because a group of medical experts have expressed trust in this brand.
And also good news because this company has extended their trust in Maine to be their endorser.
We are talking about Betadine and the product Betadine Fresh Bliss which recently held a contract signing with the phenomenal star.
Over the past years medical experts will always prescribe Betadine not just for skin conditions but for the needs of women, especially during their menstruation.
In other parts of the world Betadine is one of the 2 choices when it comes to skin disinfection.
Nurses and doctors practice antisepsis before an invasive maneuver. this action is performed several times a day.
Let’s start with the distinction between antisepsis and disinfection, both prophylaxis for the reduction of microbial load. When we talk about antisepsis we mean the practice used to prevent and decrease the proliferation of microorganisms on substrate, ie on living tissue. Disinfection, on the other hand, is a prophylactic measure in order to reduce microbial contamination in the vegetative phase, or on surfaces or inert substances, through a chemical or physical action.
Now let’s think about daily practice: how many times does a nurse perform skin antisepsis on a shift? or a surgeon during an operating room shift? The answer is several times. Numerous studies have been conducted to verify and distinguish the efficacy of the two products, and what has been shown is that despite the daily practice we often see the use of povidone iodine, it is better to prefer according to evidence the Chlorhexidine.
Chlorhexidine in normal daily activities is used at 2%, while Iodiopovidone at 10%. While Chlorhexidine is used undiluted and therefore directly from the bottle, Iodiopovidone should always be diluted 1:10. The best known and perhaps the father of all the antiseptics “Betadine” should be used diluted, taking a syringe such as 10 cc and aspirating 1cc and then diluting it with physiological solution 9 cc. The “Betadine” is also found in formulation of both 5% and 10%, with distinct uses. Chlorhexidine also exists in other formulas: 0.5%, 2% and 10%. Chlorhexidine can also be water based, or in a gluconate or alcohol solution. Both antiseptics act on gram positive, gram negative, fungi and viruses, but only povidone iodine acts on mycobacteria.
“Betadine” and Clorexdina also have two different action times, for the first it is necessary to wait at least 2 minutes while for the second it takes from 30 seconds to 2 minutes. This comparison between Clorexdina versus Iodine Povidone should be interpreted in daily practice only with intact skin, if we refer to the injured skin the comparison would be different.
