When you hear the brand name Betadine, what do you remember?

For me, it is a rather small yellow bottle with dark brownish liquid typically used as part of first aid kit.

Betadine Antiseptic Soap

I was not aware of the new line from Betadine that is called Betadine Antiseptic Soap. It looks like this:

Betadine Antiseptic Soap - Scoops of Joy

We learned more about Betadine Antiseptic Soap at an event held by Mommies Daily and Betadine last Sunday, 5 February 2017. The event allowed us to get a closer look at the product and ask Dr. Mery Sulastri the Product Educator and Consultant from Mundhipharma (the local company who produced Betadine) also Ms. Vina Oktavia the Brand Manager of Betadine Antiseptic Soap along with Fifi Alvianto a well known successful blogger and entrepreneur in Jakarta.

Group Discussion

The discussion started with the topic that is a true horror for most moms out there. The Hand Foot Mouth Disease (HFMD).

My boy has caught HFMD 4 times before. Yes, you read that right, 4 times and all those times he was miserable. He caught them from school and at some point, the virus has spread in his class that the school had to disinfect the whole school.

What I love from the group discussion was how Dr. Merry emphasizes that no, we do not need to wrap our kiddos with a bubble wrap to keep the virus at bay! We just need to ensure that our children get proper nutrients to help their body develop a strong immune system and to use antiseptic soap should we suspect that our kids have been exposed to high-risk areas (hello ball pits!).

What makes Betadine Antiseptic Different?

The secret is in Povidone – Iodine 7.5%! What is exactly Povidone – Iodine? In short, this is an antiseptic

What does it do:

  • Povidone-Iodine is effective to eliminate viruses
  • It could kill 99.99% HFMD virus.
  • Povidone-Iodine controlled topical infection from spreading
  • Does not cause resistance
  • Fast acting. It could kill virus/bacteria in 15-30 seconds

How to use Betadine Antiseptic Soap

  1. Pour a palmful of Betadine Antiseptic Soap onto your palm
  2. Apply Betadine Antiseptic Soap to your hand or entire body, then lather with regular bath soap
  3. Wash off with running water

Do you use them daily? No, they are not meant to be used daily only if you suspects yourself or your children has been exposed to virus or bacteria.

If you live in Indonesia, you could find Betadine Antiseptic Soap in all major retailers.

Fun Day With Betadine

While we mothers were involved in an in-depth group discussion, Mommies Daily team along with Rockstar Gym staff has prepared fun activities for the kids. It’s a rare thing for me to take my son along on a blogging event.

My boy’s favorite activity? The ninja warrior challenge after our discussion group was finished the swimming pool! He was having a total blast that he pout when it was time for us to leave. Thank you, Betadine, Mommies Daily and Rockstar Gym for creating such an insightful and fun event.

    I remember betadine from being in the hospital and being prepped for surgery. I’m happy to see that you can now purchase it in a soap. It’s a great antiseptic.

    I remember those foam bridges in pools from when I was younger. So much fun!

    I love using antiseptic soap, but it always dries my hands out. I continue to use it, just have to make sure I have lotion near by! Thanks for sharing!

    I always have Betadine in the house, whether it be a solution (for wounds, cuts and scrapes) or as a soap for hand washing after using the toilet and before eating. Diseases transmitted through the fecal oral route are nasty and I do my best to avoid falling ill from those bacteria and viruses. Thank you for raising awareness. Hope more people use Betadine!

    I remember when I was sick was a was small and my mom using this soap on me.

    I was unaware that there was such a thing out there. This is a very good thing to have if you have children. It would help prevent a lot of diseases that they could bring in from school or just from the outside. Glad your kids were able to have fun while you were working!

    When I heard the title I was confused. Like you I had the same memory. I love to see brands with staying power.
