After the flooding in Louisiana I was instructed to cleanse my body with this on the days where I went in for recovery work. This anti-microbial wash helped me get clean, and not have infections from abrasions incurred on the work site. I highly recommend this for pre-surgical procedures as well.
I am a pharmacy technician and whenever someone is having any type of procedure or surgery done, they get a prescription for this and are instructed to cleanse themselves everyday for 3 days including the night before the procedure. I've never heard anything bad about this product!
