US Army Issue Decontamination Lotion (RSDL)

US Army Issue Decontamination Lotion (RSDL)

Product Information

The Reactive Skin Decontamination Lotion (RSDL) is a Joint Program consisting of decontaminant(s) and applicator(s) required to immediately reduce morbidity and mortality resulting from Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) contamination of the skin.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2003 cleared for use by the U.S. military a liquid decontamination lotion intended to remove or neutralize chemical warfare agents and T-2 fungal toxin from the skin.

The lotion, RSDL, must be applied to exposed skin as soon as possible after exposure to a chemical agent.

The lotion is impregnated in a sponge pad packaged as a single unit in a heat-sealed foil pouch. When exposed to chemical warfare agents, the user wipes the exposed skin with the lotion. The lotion removes the agents or the T-2 toxin and also reacts with the chemical agents, rapidly neutralizing them so they are non-toxic.

"If used in time, this lotion can help prevent the serious burns and deaths that results from exposure to chemical warfare agents," said FDA Commissioner Mark B. McClellan, M.D., Ph.D. "FDA worked with the U.S. Army to expedite review of this product to make it available to our men and women in uniform as quickly as possible."

FDA cleared the lotion for use based on studies conducted by the U.S. Department of the Army that showed it is safe and effective. The Army tested the product's safety by conducting skin irritation, sensitization and photo irritation studies in more than 300 people. It tested its effectiveness by using it to treat animals that had been exposed to chemical agents. The Canadian military and the U.S. military worked together to develop the scientific data on which FDA based clearance of the product.
