Why is the BETADINE®Wound Care range a reddish/brown in colour?
The active ingredient in BETADINE®, povidone-iodine , is naturally a dark/reddish brown colour. It will not stain your skin, fingernails or hair, although you will be able to see see where it’s been applied on the skin.20
If you accidentally get BETADINE® on natural fibres it can usually be easily washed off with water and soap. For man-made fibres, BETADINE® can normally be washed off with the help of a stain remover.12,33,34
