1. Poly (hexamethylene biguanide) Hydrochloride (PHMB) which has a variety of antimicrobial applications. It is used as a disinfecting agent to control, prevent or destroy hramful microorganisms (i.e. bacteria, viruses or fungi). It is environmentally friendly and is non-corrosive and non-toxic to both humans and animals.
There has been no reported instances of bacteria acquiring resistance to PHMB.

2. Benzalkonium Chlorides (BZK) have widespread applications due to broad spectrum antimicrobial properties effective against bacteria, fungi, yeasts and viruses.
For this reason, they are used worldwide in disinfectant/antiseptic solutions within the pharmaceutical industry, hospitals and healthcare facilities, food processing and domestic households (just to name a few).
