What is potassium oleate of natural soap ingredient? How does it effectively kill bacteria?
What is potassium Oleate?
Potassium oil, also known as Potassium cis-9 octadecenoate. C18H33KO2 is its chemical formula. Potassium oleate can be either a brown solid or transparent amber fluid. It is the fatty acids potassium found in natural soaps. This type of potassium catalyst is used to react polyisohydrourethane with polyurethane. It can also be used to emulsify and deter. It can kill all bacteria, including MRSA.
Is it dangerous or safe?
CONSIDERED A HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCE ACCORDING OSHA 29 CFR 19.10.1200. The material can cause irritation to the eyes and skin. Intentional ingestion may cause serious health problems. It is rare to get acute potassium poisoning from swallowing, as vomiting is common and the rate of renal excretion is quick.
Potassium Oleate is approved by the FDA for safe use in food production and food processing. It can also be used as an anti-caking agent, binder, emulsifier or binder. Potassium Oleate can be used in household cleaning products as a cleanser.
What does potassium oleate do?
Potassium oleate can be used as a potassium catalyst or a trimerization catalyst for polyurethane stiff polyisocyanurate. It is widely used in the polyurethane foam insulation board PIR system. It is also used extensively in rubber emulsifiers. Potassium Oleate acts as an emulsifier for many liquid soaps. It is also used in facial cleansers. Mustache waxes. Body washes. Hair permanents. Emulsifiers are surfactants that reduce liquid's surface tension. Potassium Oleate keeps these ingredients from becoming separate chemicals.
Is potassium oil natural?
Potassium Oleate can be found in vegetable oils, such as sunflower oil. It is used in soapmaking for the production of vegetable glycerin soaps. Although it can cause irritation, its purity is improved and it is approved for soapmaking as a binding component.
How is potassium Oleate made?
The different quality of potassium-oleate products means that potassium solution (potassium oil content is less then 30%) is a colorless liquid with a yellowish hue, while pasty potassium and paste potassium and oleate (70% to 92%) are light yellow paste solids. Potassium Oleate content (higher than 95%) contains light yellow powder particles.
Potassium hydroxide can be used to produce potassium salts from fatty acids. To make this active ingredient, fatty acids are obtained from the palm, coconut and olive oils as well as cottonseed plants.
What are the real effects on potassium oleate?
1. Through exothermic interaction, potassium oleate and natural soap component inactivates human-and avian influenza virus.
The influenza virus is a serious illness that can disrupt school and work life and raise medical costs every year. Influenza is believed be responsible for a significant number of deaths. This is especially true for elderly people, children with chronic diseases, and those with chronic conditions. A pandemic is possible due to new strains or variations of the influenza virus. Pandemic virus 2009 (H1N1) was still fresh in people's minds. People are now more concerned about the possibility of an H5N1 or subtype epidemic of avian influenza virus H7N9 in the future.
Anti-flu medications can also be used to treat influenza virus infection. These measures may not prove effective because of antigenic changes or resistance to influenza viruses. For influenza virus infection to be prevented, it is important to wash your hands frequently and wear a mask.
Despite the advancement of vaccines and antiviral drugs, there is still an epidemic of influenza. For the prevention of infection by influenza virus, it is important to wash your hands regularly.
Surfactants are used as the base ingredients for hand soaps. Hand soaps use synthetic surfactants, such as sodium lauryl sulfate LES and sodium lauryl sulfate SDS. Hand soaps' basic performance is determined by the presence of surfactants. They are key components that affect detergency, foaming, and other factors. Soap, a fatty acid salt that is usually made from natural oils, can also be used for hand soap. It is known that surfactants are capable of dissolving the lipid bilayer of influenza virus particles. However, it remains to be determined how this happens.
The main ingredients of hand soaps are sodium lauryl sulfate and potassium oleate. C18:1 was found to reduce the infectivity for a strain of human influenza virus (H3N2) by at least 4 logs, while LES and SDS were less effective by just 1 log. Similar results were also obtained using an H5N3 strain of the avian flu virus. Itothermal titration calorimetry was used to examine the interaction between surfactant and virus. The LES virus system displayed a positive value in enthalpy (DH), which indicates an exothermic interaction. It also indicated a hydrophobic interplay. Both the C18-virus system as well as the SDS-virus systems had negative DH values. This indicates that the endothermic interaction indicated an electrical interaction. The DH value in the C18:1 virus system was higher than that of SDS. The DH value of a mixture of C18 and HA proteins also showed negative results.
These results suggest that influenza virus infection can be prevented by inactivation of the virus envelope by hydrophobic interaction with a surfactant. Inactivation of the virus envelope by electrical interaction of surfactants with HA proteins will prevent it from spreading.
2. Fatty Acid potassium had beneficial bactericidal properties and removed Staphylococcus Aureus Biofilms. It also showed reduced cytotoxicity towards human Keratinocytes and mouse Fibroblasts.
Wounds are often infected or contaminated by bacteria. Potassium oleate, a type of potassium fatty acid, caused >4 log colony formation unit (CFU/mL) reductions in Staphylococcus Aureus and Escherichiacoli in 10 minutes. Clostridium difficile was reduced by >2 log CFU/mL in 1 minute. C18.1K (proportion taken: 90.3%), was significantly better at removing Staphylococcus Aureus biofilms (74.8%; p 0.01) than synthetic surfactant detergents sodium lacryl ether (SLS (78.0%; p 0.05).
In the WST assay (water-soluble Tetrazolium), mouse fibroblasts in C18.1K (relative viability: 102.8%) showed a significantly greater viability than those in SLES (30.1%), or SLS (18.1%, respectively; p0.05). C18.1K (relative loss vs. control: 102.8%) was found to have significantly less LDH leakage than SLES (720.6% or 523.4%, respectively; P 0.05). Potassium Oleate showed bactericidal activity against many species, including Staphylococcus aureus. Escherichia Coli, Bacillus cereus, Clostridium difficile, and Clostridium spp.
In order to prevent and treat infections, effective treatment of pathogenic bacteria, such as MRSA (the resistant form) and biofilm-forming MRSA (the biofilm-forming MRSA), is essential. Natural soap is free from any additives, preservatives, synthetic materials or other chemicals. We also wanted to see if its core ingredients like fatty acid potassium and fatty acid sodium could be used for these purposes. So, we investigated the cytotoxicity and bactericidal activities of different types of fatty acid potassium, as well as their ability to remove MRSA.
