Povidone Iodine

1. Povidone Iodine Antiseptic is a high-efficiency new type disinfection and antiseptic. It can release 1.8 ~ 24ppm free iodine in water from 0.7% to 10% solution. It can kill microorganisms through the oxidation of the latter, The killing effect is better than that of Bibita, and it has a certain lethality to bacterial spores. The drug has a significant killing effect on Candida albicans, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, etc .; the sterilization time of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans is similar to the compound iodine solution and iodine tincture of the same concentration, but the toxicity is Only its 1/4 to 1/9. Compound PVP-Ⅰ has no toxic side effects, is inexpensive, and has protective functions for mucosal skin. Its anti-STD effect is significantly better than that of Jieeryin and potassium permanganate solution.

2. The iodine is gradually released in the solvent, which has a slow-release effect to maintain the sterilization power for a long time. Its powerful bactericidal mechanism is to oxidize the active group of the pathogen's protoplasmic protein, and can combine with the amino group of the protein to denature it, thus effectively killing bacteria, spores, fungi, viruses and protozoa and other pathogens. It has strong bactericidal power, wide sterilization range, minimal irritation, light yellow dyeing, easy to clean, and no allergic reaction.

3. It can quickly kill hundreds of bacteria and viruses such as Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, and Candida albicans. This product is currently the first choice for disinfection and antiseptic used directly on human skin and mucous membranes at home and abroad.

4. It works due to the gradual decomposition of free iodine. Among them, 80%-90% of the bound iodine can be depolymerized into free iodine, which can directly denature and precipitate proteins in the pathogen, causing pathogen cells to die, thereby achieving the purpose of efficient disinfection. It is characterized by strong bactericidal power, low toxicity, and a broad-spectrum fungicide, which can kill viruses, bacteria, spores, fungi and protozoa. It has strong killing effect on Staphylococcus aureus, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Treponema pallidum, Hepatitis B virus, HIV, Trichomonas vaginalis, etc.

5. External use can cause skin allergic reactions, which are irritating to the skin and mucous membranes. Severe burns or large-scale exfoliated skin can cause systemic adverse reactions, such as metabolic acidosis, hypernatremia, and renal impairment. Those who are allergic to iodine, and whose burn area is greater than 20%, should not be applied topically. It is not suitable for patients with toxic colloidal thyroid tumors. Caution should be used when pregnant women and newborns use large areas. Not recommended for children under 4 years.

6. Wide bactericidal spectrum, strong bactericidal power, can directly kill bacteria, fungi, viruses, spores and protozoa. The sterilization speed is fast, most bacteria can be killed within 30 seconds, and 5 minutes for individual bacteria is enough.
