Theraworx Protect vs. CHG 2018-08-13T19:19:50+00:00

Time for a CHG Bathing Alternative?

The concerns surrounding chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) are mounting —significantly rising rates of anaphylaxis, organism resistance, off-label use, increasing legal liability, and supply shortages due to contamination, to name a few. Why put your patients and your health system at risk when there’s a clinically proven, peer-reviewed and published alternative?

In head-to-head, randomized controlled, IRB-approved, independent studies evaluating mucosa and stratum corneum biocompatibility, Theraworx Protect was proven to be a safety-superior, non-inferior bathing alternative to 4% CHG.*
