Chlorhexidine Disinfectant Solution what the dif between blue and clear solution ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

saw both on Ebay. The one solution looks blue and the other looks clear...What is the differences???. Is it  a "coloring" or dye in the one bottle pictured? both I believe are 2%

  I had some for a dental rinse and threw it away couple weeks ago but cant remember if it was clear plus it had an added evil sweetner too I believe...

Pharmacies corporations  ought to give us an option ....  and not but dyes and sweetners craps in their concotions if we dont want it...

I am almost positive I saw the one you think is "clear" on Amazon and people were mad because they were expecting it to be clear, but it was, in fact, blue like all of the others.

Yes, here is the "clear" one on Amazon.  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HHSD8M?keywords=Chlorhexidine&qid=1456433212&ref_=sr_1_6&sr=8-6

 

It's just a white bottle, not a clear solution.  It's blue like the others.

I've only ever seen chlorhexidine come in blue, green or pink and that depended on the percentage and whether it was a solution or a scrub.

The color is actually used as added safety. Chlorhex is primarily used in the medical field. If everything was clear, it'd be too easy for people to accidentally use the wrong thing.
