Skin Bacteria is one of the most common causes of post-operative surgical wound infections. These wipes help in skin cleaning before the surgery and helps to prevent the infection spreading at the surgical sites. The wipes tend to contain a chemical named Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) that kills bacteria on skin that could possibly cause wound infection. These agents can be further classified into aqueous-based or alcohol-based solutions. The alcohol based solutions provide are quick and durable in nature and prevents the microbes from spreading further. In August 2019, Eisai Co., Ltd. announced the launch of antimicrobial wet wipes that is expected to contain long-acting antimicrobial agent at drug stores and hospital pharmacies worldwide. The agent named ETAK has been used in the wipes, developed by Professor Hiroki Nikawa of the Department of Oral Biology and Engineering at Hiroshima University's Graduate School of Biomedical and Health Sciences. The adhesive component of ETAK primarily binds the antimicrobial component to the area wiped, preserving the effect of anti-microbes for at least a week. The elimination of microbes is familiar among the consumers such as mothers having small children.
