Oronine H Ointment has been a staple in many Japanese households for over 60 years. It helps relieve a wide range of skin problems, including acne, minor cuts and burns, chapped skin, chilblains, and more.

Oronine H Ointment's main ingredient is bactericidal liquid chlorhexidine gluconate. It aids in preventing the infection of minor cuts, scrapes, and burns.

"I find it extremely helpful for my acne. With a predisposition to acne during times of stress or changes in lifestyle, I always apply Oronine H Ointment to pimples before bed. When I awake, there is a noticeable decrease in redness." (Note: This is a personal account by our writer.)

Due to various factors, the skin can produce an excess of sebum, which clogs pores and increases bacterial growth in the skin. Oronine H Ointment's antibacterial properties help alleviate the inflamed state of the skin.

Although it can be found at most drugstores in Japan, we’ve taken the liberty of listing 3 locations near major train stations where we are sure it can be purchased.
