You can use Betadine on large areas but wipe it off (or at least most of it) before rolling - do not roll it into the skin.  Betadine is used over large areas before surgery without any problems. Do not use Betadine if pregnant or breastfeeding.

   

  70 percent ethanol can be used on the skin but it will temporarily dry the skin out a little.

   

  Denatured alcohol is ethanol that has additives to make it unsuitable for drinking. One of the common additives to make ethanol undrinkable is adding methanol or isopropyl. This is suitable for skin- or dermaroller disinfection.

   

  Nevertheless, not all denatured alcohols are suitable for skin disinfection or even for dermaroller disinfection. Do not use ethanol that contains gasoline, kerosene and other very harsh substances.

Alternatively, you could use our recently added product Chloramine-T (a 0.5% solution) for skin disinfection but be advised that this leaves a chlorine smell on your skin for half an hour or so.

You should first wash the skin with soap (take a bath or shower), therefore 0.5% will do, with Chloramine-T.

Wet a cotton pad with tap water and wipe the Betadine off your face.

 

Concerning  the alcohol:

Yes, this can definitely be used on the skin or for dermaroller disinfection.
