Innovative ingredient Octenidine

The mid-1980s saw the arrival of Octenidine, the innovative ingredient created in schülke's own reasearch laboratories. While looking for an antiseptic agent for oral mucosa, researchers synthesised Octenidine for the first time and found how effective and well-tolerated the ingredient is.
