Possible Interaction: Chlorhexidine and Eucalyptus Oil

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

ConclusionThe delivery of CHG into the epidermis and dermis can be enhanced by combination with EO , which in turn may improve biocide contact with additional microorganisms present in the skin, thereby enhancing antisepsis.
The concentration of CHG (μg/mg of skin) was determined to a skin depth of 1500 μm by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).ResultsThe 2% (w/v) CHG penetration into the lower layers of skin was significantly enhanced in the presence of EO.
