Bactigras Dressing is used to address minor wounds and injuries from ulcers, skin abrasions or minor accidents. It consists of medical-grade cotton fabric presented as a sterile gauge and contains Soft Paraffin BP, with 0.5% w/w Chlorhexidine Acetate BP as the active ingredient responsible for its protective properties. Chlorhexidine is a powerful antimicrobial active agent that works against various kinds of bacteria. However, it is inactive against fungi, viruses and spores.
- The base is made of soft paraffin.
- It is packaged as a sterile open-weave gauze for easy and hassle-free use.
- Chlorhexidine acts as a topical antibacterial against most gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens.
- Antiseptic components ensure a reduced risk of infection.
- Available in a wide range of sizes to suit specific needs.
- Soothing and low-adherent allow maximum comfort.
- Medical grade cotton weave

- It soothes and protects the wound and allows it to breathe instead of keeping it compressed and worsening it.
- The gauze’s open-weave nature helps maintain the shape and resists fraying while being cut to fit the wound.
- The dressing can resist infection from a wide range of gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Also, it is pretty effective against most stubborn pathogens.
- Any amount of fluid oozing from the wounds does not affect the antiseptic efficacy of chlorhexidine.
