Pal Teat Sanitising solution contains Chlorhexidine, an antibacterial used as an antiseptic and other applications such as skin disinfection and in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products. The bactericidal effect is a result of the binding of this cationic molecule to negatively charged bacterial cell walls. At high concentrations, membrane disruption results in cell death. Chlorhexidine, like other cation-active compounds, remains on the surface providing residual antimicrobial activity. This solution is developed to prevent the spread of mastitis and contains 2% Glycerol to help teats retain moisture.
