ingredients: propanol-2 alcohol or mixture of alcohols (propanol-1 and propanol-2) - not less than 70%, antimicrobial benzethonium chloride
or clathrate of quaternary ammonium compound with urea (urea) - not less than 0.
While triclosan did have a four-decade history of safe and effective use-backed by science-many manufacturers of consumer hand washes have already transitioned to the other major ingredients referenced above: benzalkonium chloride, benzethonium chloride
A wide variety of biocidal agents, including quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs), such as benzalkonium chloride (BAC) and benzethonium chloride
(BZT) and divalent cations like chlorhexidine digluconate (CHDG) are commonly used in hospitals and healthcare facilities to decontaminate surfaces, disinfect the hands of hospital personnel, and treat hospital-acquired infections.
The agency has deferred for 1 year a decision on the continued use of three other ingredients in consumer wash products: benzalkonium chloride, benzethonium chloride
, and chloroxylenol.
Three additional ingredients common in cleaning products --benzalkonium chloride, benzethonium chloride
and chloroxylenol --remain under review by the FDA.
13 request is directed at solutions, swabs, pads saturated with a solution, and applicators containing solutions typically including isopropyl or ethyl alcohol, povidone iodine, poloxamer-iodine, benzalkonium chloride, benzethonium chloride
, or chlorhexidine gluconate as a single agent or in combination with alcohol.
triclosan, and benzethonium chloride
have been identified in commercial GSE samples.
Since the injection of Benadryl with Benzethonium chloride
, I have become super sensitive to any foods containing any amount of benzoates, as well as BHA, BHT, and THBQ.
In all of the antimicrobial active grapefruit seed extracts, the preservative benzethonium chloride
was detected by thin layer chromatography.
Second, synthetic preservative substances, such as benzethonium chloride
, are potent inhibitors of CYP2C9 activity in vitro, producing unpredictable effects of warfarin therapy (3).
02%) is added as a stabilizer and benzethonium chloride
Selecting a Category III active is a risky business decision now that the FDA has classified the top five most commonly used antibacterials (triclosan, triclocarban, benzalkonium chloride, benzethonium chloride
and choroxylenol) as Category IIISE.
