Butane is a propellant used to dispense a product from a container. It is often used in concert with other propellants such as isobutane and propane. While butane is commonly known for its use in heaters and lighters, in use as a propellant its energy comes from being compressed in a can rather than from being lit or heated.
Isobutane is a propellant used to dispense a product from a container. It is often used in concert with other propellants such as butane and propane. While isobutane is commonly known for its use as a fuel, for example for camp stoves, in use as a propellant its energy comes from being compressed in a can rather than from being lit or heated.
Propane is a propellant used to dispense a product from a container. It is often used in concert with other propellants such as butane and isobutane. While propane is commonly known for its use as a fuel, for example for grills and portable stoves, in use as a propellant its energy comes from being compressed in a can rather than from being lit or heated.
Sorbitan Oleate is an emulsifier that can also be found in moisturizers, hair-styling products and soaps. It helps bind ingredients together and keep a formula from separating. In fragranced products, it also helps ensure even distribution of the fragrance. We add emulsifiers to our products where needed to ensure that our products provide the same performance use after use.
Sodium phosphate is a corrosion inhibitor that can also be found in bath products and makeup. It helps keep contents fresh and prevent the corrosion or rusting of a can, container or dispenser. We know there are concerns about phosphates and their impact on waterways and surface water. However, sodium phosphate is used in low concentrations to limit the concentrations of total phosphate being used in SC Johnson products and potentially released to surface waters.
Sodium hydroxide is a builder that can also be found in detergents and degreasers. We use it to make a product formula clean better by affecting the molecules in the formula so they work together better. Sodium hydroxide can also be a pH adjuster that alters the pH of a product to improve stability. Every formula has an optimum pH to make it work best. For example, a formula that’s more acidic works better for soap scum removal. Its opposite, a formula that’s more alkaline, might be more effective at removing grease or greasy soils. We use pH adjusters to make sure we achieve the best pH for a particular job. Also, the pH of a formula can affect how long it lasts within a container – for example limiting its tendency to corrode a can, container or dispenser. In high concentrations (such as in drain cleaners), sodium hydroxide can also be used as a caustic that helps dissolve organic matter like drain clogs.
Propylene Glycol is a solubilizer that can also be found in cosmetics, toothpaste, food and beer. It is sometimes confused with ethylene Glycol, the sweet-tasting ingredient that can be used in air conditioning systems and antifreeze products, but it is a different ingredient. Propylene Glycol is used in our products to help ensure even distribution of the ingredients throughout a product, to help it work better. We also use it as an odor eliminator; as a cleaning agent, or "surfactant," that removes dirt; as a wetting agent; or as a carrier that enables delivery of the product to the surface. In certain products, Propylene Glycol works as a moisturizer helping to prevent a product or surface, like leather, from drying out by retaining moisture making the material softer and more pliable.
Quaterinary Ammonium Chlorides稳定剂
Quaternary ammonium salts are cleaning agents, or "surfactants," that can also be found in disinfectants, fabric softeners and shampoos. There is concern that quaternary ammonium salts can cause dermal and respiratory allergies in sensitized populations. However, concentrations of quaternary ammonium salts used in SC Johnson products are below levels that have shown effects in sensitization tests.
