Why does sterility matter?
During the manufacturing process, there can be a risk of contamination. The MHRA in the UK recommend that every skin antiseptic product intended for medical use should be manufactured sterile. In some countries this isn't a regulatory requirement, however producing sterile products will maximise patient safety and reduce product recalls.
