Since Ciao’s campaign this month has been health products, there’s been the endless reviewing of antiseptic creams, especially Savlon antiseptic cream, a product that is much trusted by many buyers and families. There was a time however when Savlon and other antiseptic creams like Germolene were not available at any other outlet other than pharmacies – and even today if you visit a local, large size newsagents, you’re bound to find Savlon cream as a good and basic antiseptic cream for emergencies. It’s a pity then that growing up I was more or less raised with the smell of Dettol in our home and that awful Jeyes liquid my mum favoured when it came to cleaning. When we first got Savlon antiseptic cream, the smell put me off for life – strange that I’m used to Dettol and even Germolene – but not the smell of Savlon – it just seems to make me feel physically sick, anytime I smell it.
Alongside the Parrs Manuka Body Butter, we also had an alternative antiseptic in the form of Comvita Manukacare 100% Antibacterial Manuka Honey purchased well before the Parrs product. As soon as I could, I set about looking for any of the Comvita products, culminating in the “Manuka Care 18” antiseptic lotion, largely because I had become so dependable on my parents product and the lack of a clinical smell that gave me the bends (unless it’s Dettol) that I had to buy my own!
