Chloraseptic

Chloraseptic is an American brand of oral analgesic produced by Prestige Brands Inc, used for the relief of minor sore throat and mouth pain. Its active ingredient is phenol, a compound whose antiseptic properties were discovered by Sir Joseph Lister.

Other Chloraseptic formulas are based on benzocaine.

Chloraseptic was invented and originally made by Robert Schattner; it was later bought by Richardson-Vicks, which merged with Procter & Gamble in 1985. The product was sold to the independent company Prestige in 1999. Today, this product is owned by the Prestige division Medtech.
