Quats application

Personal care

Quats are well-known antiseptics and have a long history of use in topical products for personal care such as creams, facial scrubs and cleansing gels. They act on a wide range of microorganisms, from gram+ to gram- bacteria, moulds and yeasts. Our FeF Quats are colourless and odourless in finished product formulation, and their effectiveness in all pH ranges combined with their ability to mix well in both aqueous and oily phases, make them an ideal antimicrobial ingredient.
