Savlon is an antiseptic brand that was introduced containing the two antiseptics cetrimide and chlorhexidine. These were discovered and first developed by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI).[1] On May 22, 1992 Johnson & Johnson announced that it has acquired Savlon OTC brands from ICI.[2]

Various antiseptic products are sold under this trade name; for example a cream containing cetrimide as its only active ingredient, and a dry antiseptic containing povidone-iodine.[3]
