Bepanthen First Aid is a non-stinging off-white colour antiseptic cooling cream. Applied to superficial wounds, it prevents or combats infection and promotes natural healing. Bepanthen First Aid contains chlorhexidine, a non-stinging antiseptic which is active against bacteria present on the skin or in contaminated wounds and which is therefore capable of preventing or controlling wound infection. Bepanthen First Aid also contains the active ingredient dex- panthenol, which is converted in the skin to pantothenic acid, a vitamin that accelerates the formation of new tissue and enhances scar solidity. Bepanthen First Aid is easy to apply and wash off. It is non-greasy and does not stick to the skin.
