    Can Sodium Gluconate and BTMS-50 can be used together in a skincare formulation?

    I assume you are using it as a chelate?

    When we look at chelating cationics…there are two things we look at

    1) Dosing

    2) Number of negative charges.

    So, to address the first….we use good quality water…and the very low end of use rate.

    Secondly, chelates will have different amounts of negative charges, some up to 12 negative charges…. some only have 3. As an example, why EDTA and GLDA get used so much, is they only have 3 negative charges…hence cause far less disruption than say a product with 12.

    Bottom line….there is a reason…GLDA is the most universal (not the best….EDTA is king) of the chelates. In my opinion….it checks more boxes than any other chelate on the market. (Just opinion.)

      chelates also have pH working ranges…where they perform at their best.

      The one you mentioned likes higher pH’s, hence is often found in laundry detergent.

      MFG propaganda…tends to be a little liberal…when it comes to best option selections, and ranges.
