About Germolene Cream

Germolene is an antiseptic ointment, designed to help keep minor wounds clean. Germolene uses a combination of active ingredients to help provide care for minor skin injuries.

Phenol acts as both an antiseptic and provides a soothing local anaesthetic effect, helping to numb the pain of the wound, while chlorhexidine digluconate provides a strong antiseptic effect, proven to deal with a wide variety of microorganisms that cause infections.

Germolene is an excellent choice for your home first aid kit, for cuts, scrapes, burns and scalds.
