Store the container tightly closed in a cool dry place protected from direct sunlight.
EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) has been widely used for the control of microorganisms and biofilms, usually combined with other substances, such as alcohols and other antiseptics against a wide range of microorganisms. It has the chemical property of combining with metal ions forming complexes that precipitate in form of chelates.
EDTA is thought to interfere with fungal growth as it competes with siderophores for iron and calcium essential for the maintenance of the fungal cycle.
Chlorhexidine is a widely used disinfectant and preservative. As a preservative, due to its antimicrobial effect, it prevents or delays the harmful effects of microorganisms on the other ingredients. As a disinfectant, it is used for the treatment of environmental surfaces and, in less concentrated forms, as an antiseptic for treatment of the skin, ears and oral cavity.
Tris-EDTA action is enhanced when applied with other antiseptics such as chlorhexidine, increasing its effects on bacteria membranes and its antiseptic action against Gram – and Gram + bacteria. That synergistic effect allows to reduce chlorhexidine concentration.
Tromethamine is an alkaline buffer that enhances the chelating action of EDTA and therefore its antibiotic efficacy. It counteracts the acidity of the exudate produced in otitis externa, which contributes to reducing antibiotic efficacy.
Benzyl Alcohol is commonly used as a preservative, due to its inhibitory activity on the growth of microorganisms. In addition, it possesses mild local anesthetic activity that appears to reduce pain at injection sites.
