Tetrasodium EDTA 10 Lb
Tetrasodium EDTA Chelate
Most versatile chelating agent.
Often utilized in personal care products to control metal ions across a very broad pH range. Tetrasodium EDTA functions by bonding to metal ions, and inactivating them, to extend shelf lide and slow deterioration of product. This same action also prevents metal ions from depositing onto skin and hair.
In personal care products, these agents improve effectiveness, extend stability, and increase hard water performance, rinseability, clarity, fragrance integrity, and shelf life of formulations. Tetrasodium EDTA can also be used to neutralize Carbomer, or raise the pH of personal care formulations.
Dry crystalline, technical grade, high purity form of Tetrasodium EDTA liquid 39%, Versene 100 , Trilon B, Trilon BX, Dissolvine E 39 or Sequestrene 30A.
Chelating agents help prevent chalking, rancidity, and metal-catalyzed discoloration in formulations. Additional quantities of chelating agent may also improve foaming, soaping action, and the feel of the soap at normal bathing temperatures.
Tetrasodium EDTA chelates most transition metals typically between pH rge of 4 to 12.
Tetrasodium EDTA is easy to use and is added to emulsions in the water phase at typical use levels of 0.02%-0.1% so it is very cost effective.
EDTA is a good addition to soaps, hair products, creams and lotions. And used to neutralize Carbomer, or raise the pH of personal care formulations while providing additional benefits like extending shelf life. A good chelate enhances the efficacy of preservative systems.
