Sunstar’s G-U-M® brand Chlorhexidine Gluconate Oral Rinse USP, 0.15% is the first and only FDA-approved chlorhexidine gluconate rinse in the US that does not contain alcohol. The mouth rinse, which effectively fights gingivitis, differs from all other chlorhexidine rinses marketed in the US due to the absence of alcohol. Other chlorhexidine gluconate rinses sold in the US contain 11.6% alcohol by volume.
G-U-M Chlorhexidine Gluconate Oral Rinse is therapeutically equivalent to available CHX rinses despite the 0% alcohol content. This alcohol-free version of chlorhexidine gluconate has met a stringent bioequivalence and therapeutic equivalency review by the FDA, and is supported by clinical and in vitro studies.
