Active Constituents (per g):
Titanium Dioxide 14mg
Zinc Oxide 80mg
Chlorhexidine Gluconate 1.1mg
Zinc salts are well known for their sun screen effects as is titanium dioxide. Both are inert compounds.
Chlorhexidine gluconate is the antiseptic of choice in veterinary medicines because of its rapid onset of action, persistency and strong bactericidal activity.
Vetsep Antiseptic Block is the only antiseptic sunscreen on the veterinary market containing chlorhexidine.
Cetrimide is a quaternary ammonium compound with only weak antiseptic qualities, and is included in such mixtures only as a surfactant.
Emollients are also used to emulsify the ointment and soothe the skin. *Macrogols, emollients used in other antiseptic sunblocks, are not used in Vetsep Antiseptic Block as they further reduce the antibacterial action of cetrimide.
