Quaternary Ammonium Compounds

These are a class of chemicals that are commonly used in consumer products and act as active ingredients for killing off microbial products and disinfection. They are also used in the beauty industry as an antistatic and anti-frizz agent in conditioners. As effective as they may be in function, ammonium compounds can have adverse health effects and should be substituted with products that use other, safer preservatives instead. “Quats” as they’re known, usually have “… onium chloride” in their names, e.g. Benzalkonium Chloride.
