From skinned knees to stubborn splinters, Iodex® has been a trusted part of the family home medicine chest since 1910. This old-fashion, time-tested ointment is the perfect first aid go-to remedy for cuts, boils, abrasions and more.
Historically known as a “black salve”, Iodex contains iodine which has both antiseptic and antibacterial properties essential for wound healing. Even the smallest cut can cause a “big ouch” when touched with iodine. Iodex eliminates the “ouch” and promotes healing painlessly through the slow release of iodine.
For over 100 years, families, including my own, have reported significant improvement when applying Iodex to cuts, scrapes, insect bites, rashes, carbuncles, sores and minor burns. Keep a jar handy in your home medicine cabinet, with your camping gear, in your car or at work. The sooner Iodex is applied to the affected area, the better the chances of reducing infection.
What is IODEX®?
Iodex ointment contains 4.7% Iodine which is a commonly used topical antiseptic. An antiseptic has the ability to reduce the possibility of infection. Iodex aids in fighting and inhibiting the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other microbes on the skin which can significantly improve the healing time of a cut, scrape, sore or splinter. When an infection is present in a wound, the area is often sore and painful. Applying Iodex to a wound combats the germs and relieves the pain and soreness surrounding it.
Iodine combines with a hydrating base to lock in moisture and allow the affected areas on the skin to remain soft and supple, promoting faster healing time. Unlike many other medicated ointments, Iodex will not burn or sting when applied.
Give your skin the protection it needs to restore itself to a healthy state.
