would like to know if I can get specification of above ingredient listing out % of each component? 
Also what is the maximum dosage of Acrylamide can be used to meet with EU REACH regulation?

Is there any other ingredient that can substitute this Acrylamide  / Sodium Acrylate Copolymer / Paraffinum liquidum and Trideceth-6

thanks a lot

Daniel

    That's easy - call the supplier, ask for technical service, and tell them that you are preparing an ingredient label, so you need percentages.

    The EU reach question will need to be answered by a regulatory specialist, or a consultant.

    don't know about REACh regs, but according to Annex III/66 of the cosmetics regs, the acceptable limit for residual acrylamide is 0.1 ppm for leave-on products and 0.5 ppm for everything else

  • thanks for the reply. Problem is the dealer here wont be able to give the percentages. Seems the supplier is Rheocare ATC which was acquired by Basf as advised.
  • What is the best ingredient to replace this? Any suggestion? Thanks

    When requesting technical information, NEVER talk to the dealer, distributor, etc. You must always, always speak directly to the manufacturer. There is no other way to be sure that you are getting accurate, up-to-date information.

    Call BASF. Talk to their Technical Service Department. They are required to give you enough information for you to write an accurate ingredient label. This may mean that you get a range rather than an exact percentage, but you will get information. It is more likely that you will be able to get verbal, rather than written, information. It doesn't matter where you get their ingredient from, BASF is responsible for giving the correct info on it.
