Comparison of Aminomethyl Propanol (AMP) and Triethanolamine (TEA)
What are the pros and cons of using Aminomethyl Propanol (AMP Ultra PC 2000) versus Triethanolamine (TEA NF) in terms of neutralizing formulations (O/W lotions), performance, stability, health concerns, global compliance, cost and other factors?
I am formulating an O/W body lotion with a target pH of 5.4-5.6 and shelf life of 18 months. I am trying to determine whether it would better for me to use AMP or TEA in my formulation.
Any thoughts, comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
