laundry chelating agents

Chelating agents are specialized ingredients that bind to the metal ions in washing water, preventing them from interfering with the cleaning process. This enhances the efficacy of the detergents and overall cleanliness, making them an essential component in laundry treatments.

ingredients that are a superior alternative to EDTA

Incorporating chelating agents into laundry treatments contributes to optimal cleanliness and prolongs fabric life. By preventing damage associated with hard water, clothes stay brighter and fresher for longer, leading to higher consumer satisfaction and product preference. Furthermore, the move towards biodegradable chelating agents aligns with the industry's increasing focus on sustainability. By developing environmentally friendly chelating agents, manufacturers can contribute to sustainable home care solutions that are effective and eco-conscious.

Biopure™ GLDA, a 1:1 replacement for EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), is a powerful chelating agent that stays stable over a wide pH range and when added to the formulation can help stabilize the product and prevent discoloration. Biopure GLDA increases the efficacy of preservatives by weakening bacteria cell membranes.

In using this readily biodegradable solution, an increased stability and shelf life of applications can be achieved. Biopure GLDA is listed on CleanGredients database as a Safer-Choice chelating agent.

personal & home care stop the scum

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.

personal & home care multi-surface cleaner

Multi-surface cleaners are useful disinfectants that work on a wide range of surfaces. Adding a vinegar booster to your surface cleaners adds versatility as it can cut through dirt and films on most surfaces, due to its acidic composition. Jarace™ SA-VB+ is a Sodium Diacetate-based, ammonia-free option that can be used in the kitchen, bathroom, and on car surfaces. It is also approved for use around children and animals. While vinegar tends to have a strong aroma, Jarace SA-VB+ is mild in odor and easy to incorporate into any formula.
