Chlorhexidine Digluconate Science: Mouthwash from Corsodyl

Chlorhexidine digluconate acts rapidly, killing the bacteria that cause plaque in just 30 seconds2,3

Chlorhexidine digluconate is an antibacterial ingredient that fatally damages bacterial cell walls in just 30 seconds. It forms a protective layer over the gums and teeth, helping to prevent plaque build-up for up to 12 hours.2

  • Kills a broad spectrum of bacteria through binding to and damaging their cell walls, causing fatal leakage of cytoplasm2
  • After 40 years of use in the dental profession, chlorhexidine is still recognised as the gold standard against which other anti-plaque and gingivitis agents are measured2,4
