Project Description


Chlorhexidine Digluconate 7.1% w/v


Chlorhexidine is a very potent, cationic chemoprophylactic agent. It has a broad spectrum action, and is more effective against gm+ve than gm-ve bacteria. It acts by binding to negatively charged bacterial cell wall thereby disrupting membrane integrity and affecting its functions. In high concentrations, chlorhexidine is bactericidal.

Mechanism of Action

  • This preparation contains Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Isopropyl Alcohol Solution
  • Chlorhexidine Gluconate is an antiseptic effective against a wide range of bacteria, yeasts, some other fungi and viruses
  • Chlorhexidine gluconate is most active at neutral or alkaline conditions. Its activity is reduced by the presence of blood or body fluids
  • It binds strongly to skin, mucosa and other tissue and is therefore poorly absorbed.
  • It is bacteriostatic at low concentrations whilst at higher concentrations their activity is rapidly bactericidal
  • They are both active against dermatophytic fungi (including the yeast C. Albicans) and enveloped viruses such as HIV


  • Application of 7.1% chlorhexidine digluconate (delivering 4% chlorhexidine) to the umbilical cord stump prevents infection and saves lives.

Dosage and Administration

Wash hand with soap and water before/after using GP-Cord. Apply10 ml GP-Cord Solution to umbilcal cord just after birth such as it is completely wet by the applied solution. Don’t wipe out the cord with anything else after using the GP-Cord Solution. Don’t use anything else after using GP-Cord Solution to Cord and keep it dry.
