    Betadine (povidone-iodine) is made up of the chemical polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) and iodine. It was found that the combination of the two chemicals together was less toxic than plain iodine and is now considered the universally preferred iodine disinfectant.

    (All of this as per Wikepedia) Hope this helps!
