Suga®Nate 100NC is a high foaming sulfonated surfactant based on a naturally derived alkyl polyglucoside derivative. Suga®Nate 100NC offers good emulsification, mildness to the skin, and excellent lime soap dispersion to give the formulator maximum flexibility in the preparation of light and heavy-duty cleaners. Suga®Nate 100NC can be used in dishwashing liquids that feature outstanding grease emulsification, mildness to the hands, and excellent foam stability. Suga®Nate 100NC exhibits superior cleaning in very hard water, reducing the need for expensive builder in the formulation. It is also suitable for use in acidic formulations such as those containing glycolic or α-hydroxy acids. The stability of Suga®Nate 100NC at any pH makes it desirable in many formulations for industrial, institutional and household applications.
Suga®Nate 100NC is the recipient of the EPA’s New Chemicals Program Pollution Prevention (P2) Recognition Award. Innovative new chemicals are selected for recognition by the New Chemicals Program P2 Recognition Project because they promote source reduction as well as safety goals, in particular when the innovative chemistries substitute for existing chemicals posing greater risks. Suga®Nate 100NC is selected because it is a sulfonated surfactant based on the renewable resource of alkyl polyglucoside, a naturally-derived, sustainable raw material. This primary surfactant is readily biodegradable, soluble in water and non-irritating to the skin. Suga®Nate 100NC is a safe replacement for heavily ethoxylated surfactants.
SKIN/EYE IRRITATION TESTING
Skin irritation testing was performed on 53 test subjects who wore a patch containing 10% Suga®Nate 100NC for 48 and 72 hours. Visual observation of the skin after that time revealed no changes in skin condition in all test subjects indicating the negative potential for skin irritation by Suga®Nate 100NC.
