Why using Hansaplast Wound Spray for antiseptic wound cleansing through mechanical irrigation?
Disinfection refers to the destruction of microorganisms on the surface of non-living objects. Therefore, the term “disinfection” is misleading in the context of wound care. This is why it is not recommended to use any household disinfectants on damaged skin as it might not only kill bacteria but also harm living skin cells.
In contrast, the Hansaplast Wound Spray is intended for antiseptic wound cleansing through mechanical irrigation, which is the physical removal of dirt and harmful bacteria from the damaged skin. The formula of the Hansaplast Wound Spray is particularly skin-friendly and protects most living skin cells, which are essential for the skin’s regeneration.
