Benzalkonium chloride (BZK, BKC, BAK, BAC), also known as alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride (ADBAC) , is a type of cationic surfactant. It is an organic salt classified as a quaternary ammonium compound. Benzalkonium chloride powder supplied by Quzhou Ebright Chemicals Co.,Ltd is with GMP certificate, suitable for pharma uses.

Benzalkonium chloride acts as a strong antibacterial and algaecide agent. It dissociates into cationic active groups in an aqueous solution. It offers clean, strong & rapid bactericidal power along with low toxicity and little irritation to skin and mucous membranes. It displays better activity in greater alkalinity and poor activity in emulsions. Benzalkonium chloride is also used as a disinfectant and deodorant in cosmetics.

 Its functions

  • Antimicrobial : Helps slowing the growth of micro-organisms on the skin and counteracts the development of microbes
  • Antistatic : Reduces static electricity by neutralizing electrical charge on a surface
  • Deodorant : Reduces or masks unpleasant body odors
  • Preservative : Inhibits the development of microorganisms in cosmetic products.
  • Surfactant-dispersing : Help distribute an insoluble solid in a liquid phase. Suspensions or dispersions of liquids in a second liquid are generally called emulsions.

Especially for its antimicrobial activity, benzalkonium chloride is an active ingredient in many consumer products.
