Chelating Agents

Stable Systems

Chelating agents play a crucial role in the stability and efficacy of personal care products. We offer Natrlquest®, a powerful chelating agent developed using advanced technology. For a biodegradable alternative to EDTA chelating agents, Natrlquest® is the formulator’s choice

Natrlquest® – preservative potentiator and antioxidant

  • Prevents discoloration and malodor
  • Reduces the effect of water hardness
  • Readily biodegradable (non-EDTA)
  • Ideal for wash-off applications

Our range includes:

Natrlquest® E30

Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate

Natrlquest® E30 is a biodegradable chelating agent that is special in the fact that it is very selective towards problematic transition metals such as Cu and Fe compared to Ca and Mg. This makes it ideal in personal care formulations as it is tackling these problematic transition metals first while in the formulation, but still giving hard water control when released into the water. This gives Natrlquest® E30 the benefit of excellent anti-oxidant properties and foam preservation in shampoos and conditioners.


Natrlquest® E80

Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate

80% active white powder. Free acid form. Unique readily biodegradable chelating agent. Effective as a preservative potentiator and anti-oxidant in formulations.
