  • Neutrol MGDA Compared to Traditional Chelating Agents?

    Posted by spadirect on July 10, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    Neutrol MGDA (INCI: Trisodium Dicarboxymethyl Alaninate) is a new chelating agent recently launched by BASF Care Creations.

    In your experience, how does Trisodium Dicarboxymethyl Alaninate compare to traditional chelating agents in terms of final product stability?

    Any comments and discussion regarding Trisodium Dicarboxymethyl Alaninate’s performance as a chelating agent would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

    Have you tried getting a sample? BASF will generally connect you with a rep who will want to know usage rates, etc. and they work primarily with Commercial accounts. I don’t believe their products are repacked very often. https://www.ulprospector.com/documents/1614169.pdf?bs=75&b=3568294&st=20&r=na&ind=personalcare

    I have not tried getting a sample.

    It is so new that it appears that very few chemists have ever worked with this chelating agent.

    We have used it. It is difficult and unlikely that someone would test to quantify the activity. It was easy to add into the Formula and the product passed PET.

    Did you notice any differences in final product characteristics using Trisodium Dicarboxymethyl Alaninate versus other more commonly used chelators?

    Not a bit. Generally they are used at such low levels you wouldn’t have any marked effect.
