The anti-adherent formulation described herein acts to prevent the adherence of menses and/or fecal material to the skin in the labial and perianal regions during and after menstruation or defecation, respectively. The anti-adherent formulation contains a carrier, from about 0.1% by weight to about 10.0% by weight of a quaternary ammonium compound, and from about 0.5% by weight to about 10.0% by weight of a fatty alcohol.
