Savlon

published

Why Dettol kept Savlon and ditched Dettol Antiseptic Cream is marketing genius for every other manufacturer, Savlon appears to have no useful properties in comparison, moved to a alternate brand

Purchased in December 2020 at Woolworths for $7.00.

Liquid, not Cream

published

The last few tubes I have bought were liquid instead of cream. It used to be a very good product but appears quality control is lacking. Now looking for alternatives.

Cream is liquid

published

I purchased a tube of Savlon Cream in the past month only to find that the contents were liquid. I returned it to supermarket for a refund and purchased another brand instead. There must be an issued with this batch which slipped through quality control.

Purchased in July 2019 at Woolworths Physical store for $7.30.

Trusted by generations, and still going strong!

published

Savlon is one of those products which I suspect we take for granted.

I have used it for many years, and it always has been of consistent quality and utility.

There may be other brands of antiseptic cream, but Savlon offers a level of consistency and effectiveness which means I continue to use it.

Have they added sand to the product

published

Have used Savlon for years, recently purchased 3 tubes and all 3 have some sort of grainy material in it.
Totally useless for any sensitive areas or any sort of burn.

OMG... what have they done to my Savlon?

New tube + contents inferior quality.

published

I have used Savlon for many years but I was very disappointed with the new tube I recently purchased.
1. The tube is the same size but the contents are only 40g, not the usual 56g
2. The cream is much runnier presumably because more water is being used in the recipe.
3. The tube seems to be made of an inferior material and has already cracked.

Virtually unusable

published

Much like almost every other review the word apparently 'cream' describes the colour only rather than the texture. The stuff was normal when I first used it after purchase but in the last month it has sat in the cupboard it appears to have changed into a milky watery liquid. Lost half of it down my arm when I tried to treat a cut and it now completely unusable for the intended purpose.

The only way to salvage this tube is to use the liquid when soaking gauze. I will be changing brand when I next buy with nothing but a wistful glance over my should at what the product used to be back when it was still good.

Why a tube?

published

I'm almost 75. Been using Savlon as long as I can remember. I've just bought my last tube. That watered down rubbish you call Savlon these days is no longer on my shopping list. It should be sold in a bottle as a lotion. Calling it a cream is false advertising. Reckitt Benkiser should be sued for deceptive advertising.

Looks like they ruined it.

published

Given the recent reviews I won't buy it. I know it was a staple in my parent's medicine cupboard but it won't be in mine. I'll look for another brand.

I have always had Savlon in my cupboard - used to swear by it.

published

Now it's so runny it pours like liquid rather than the former cream which was squeezed out?? What's going on please>
Also although it has Reckitt Benkiser on the tube as manufacturer - when I tried to find it in their products - search failed??
Please explain what is going on? You owe it to the customers who 'couldn't live without it!'

Works but Lumpy?

published

I have used Savlon for many years; I use it daily as after shaving my neck tends to rash, as does other areas that constantly rub together. It doesn't have a strong smell like other similar ointments. More recently, in every tube for awhile now, I have found small hard lumps; like grains of sugar, which aren't ideal when I'm using in 'rubbing' areas. It should be a smooth cream.

CREAM ??????

published

Have used Savlon for as long as I can remember and now it has gone like every other brand too watery to call cream. SHAME ON YOU ALL . It has no effect on cuts and bruises now because it just runs down your leg , arm or face.

Name change required...should be antiseptic milk!

published

We have used this product for year, but no more we are changing brands!!!! Shame on you Savlon you will lose more customers than its worth. The idiot who made this decision should be sacked!
