By default, water contains many minerals including the metal ions of calcium, iron, and magnesium. Anyone who has used hard water understands the challenge these metal ions create. These metal ions interfere with the effectiveness of soaps and detergents, visually resulting in soap scum. Chelating agents bind to and remove metal ions from solutions. Restraining and removing these metal ions allows for preservatives to preserve longer and surfactants to clean more efficiently. Chelating Agent, Biopure™ GLDA, is a biodegradable and eco-friendly EDTA replacement, making it a great choice for those looking for more sustainable cleaning options. This versatile chelating agent can be used in a wide variety of household, institutional, and industrial cleaning and personal care products.
