Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to cetrimide (CAS RN 8044-71-1), cetrimide hydrochloride (CAS RN 505-86-2), and cetrmonium bromide (CAS RN 57-09-0). Cetrimonium, a cetyltrimethylammonium compound, is an anti-infective agent whose salts and derivatives are used as topical antiseptics (1). Cetrimonium is the parent compound of cetrimide, which is an antiseptic used topically as a cream to help prevent infection in chapped hands, minor skin abrasions, minor cuts, burns and diaper rash (2, 3, 4). In veterinary medicine, cetrimide is used as a topical antiseptic at concentrations up to 2%. Cetrimide dissociates to a biologically active cation and an inactive anion in aqueous solution; the cation is responsible for the surfactant activity and anti-infective properties.
