It is used for non-human animals, but as far as I have read it is not used among people. Are there exceptions?

    Not sure what you are asking, it's used by humans all the time. Hibiclens, Dyna-Ex, used as an oral rinse...

  • The answer to the question: Because it's usually referred to by brand name instead of generic chemical name. Commented Dec 31, 2019 at 0:04

1 Answer 1


It is used among humans it's called:

Hibiclens, Dyna-Hex, Ezy-tm, and Exidine

As also stated by the user JohnP in a comment.

And it works for:

  • Cleaning the hands

  • Before surgery or injections

  • To cleanse skin or wounds

  • And as a oral rinse

So there is no exception it is used for humans.

  • But you are right it is also used for animals.
