What is potassium Oleate?
Potassium Cis-9-Octadecenoate. The chemical formula of potassium oleate (C18H33KO2) is C18H33KO2. Potassium is available as a brown liquid or solid. It is potassium fatty acids found in natural soaps. This potassium catalyst is mostly used to catalyze the reaction of polyisohydrourethane with polyurethane. This potassium catalyst can also be used to emulsify and as a detergent. It can be used to kill any type of bacteria, including MRSA.
The word “Is” is used to describe the concept of a person. Potassium oleate Are you a danger or a safe person?

OSHA 29 CFR 19.10.1200 CLASSIFIES IT AS A HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES. Eyes, skin, and respiratory system are irritated. Ingestion of this material by accident can cause serious health problems. Acute poisoning by potassium after swallowing occurs rarely because vomiting often occurs and renal excretion happens quickly.

Potassium Oleate can be used “safely in the food or in the manufacturing of food components”, as long as the FDA is satisfied that it will act as “a binder and emulsifier” and “an anti-caking agent”. Potassium Oleate may also be used to clean household products.

What uses does potassium oleate have?

Potassium isoleate acts as a trimerization and potassium catalyst in polyurethane rigid monoisocyanurate. It is used widely in the polyurethane PIR foam board system. Additionally, potassium oleate has a wide range of uses, including rubber emulsifiers and foaming agents. Potassium Oleate acts as an emulsifier for many liquid soaps. It is also used in facial cleansers and mustache waxes. Emulsifiers are similar to surfactants in that they reduce the surface of liquids. Potassium Oleate helps to prevent the separation of ingredients into different chemicals.

Is potassium Oleate Natural?

Potassium Oleate occurs naturally in oils, such as sunflower. It is used as a soapmaking ingredient to create soaps with vegetable glycerin. It is a irritant in its purest form. In soapmaking, it is reduced to a safe level and used as an ingredient.

How potassium oleate is made?

The different qualities of potassium-oleate products are: potassium oleate solutions (potassium content less than 30%) is a colorless liquid to light yellow, pasty potassium (potassium content 50%) is a yellowish to light brown viscous liquid. Paste potassium (potassium content 70-92%) is a soft yellow paste solid, and potassium oleate powder (potassium content greater than 95%) is light yellow powder.

The potassium salts of fatty acid are made by adding potassium chloride to animal fats and plant oils. To make this active ingredient, fatty acids are obtained from palm, coconut oil, castor and cottonseed.

What are the true effects of potassium Oleate?

1. Through exothermic interactions, potassium oleate from natural soap components inactivates influenza virus of humans and birds.

Each year, influenza viruses spread, disrupting social activities at work and in schools. Medical expenses also increase. Influenza, it is believed, is the leading cause of death in the United States. It is also estimated that influenza is a significant contributor to excessive deaths, especially among the elderly, chronically ill patients, and children. A pandemic can also be caused by new strains. People are still thinking about the pandemic virus of 2009 (H1N1), and they’re worried that a subtype H5N1 or a H7N9 epidemic could occur in the future.

Influenza virus can be prevented with vaccines, and treated by anti-flu drugs. These measures may be ineffective due to antigenic mutations or drug resistance. In order to combat influenza virus infection, preventive measures are crucial. These include washing hands, wearing a face mask, and using antiseptic soap.

Even though vaccines and antiviral drugs have been developed, an influenza epidemic still occurs. The prevention of influenza virus infections is crucial. This includes handwashing.

As a basic ingredient, hand soaps are made up of surfactants. In hand soaps, synthetic surfactants like sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium lauryl sulfate are used. Surfactants contribute to the detergency of soap and its foaming. It is made of fatty acids and natural oils. Soap can be used for hand soap. Surfactants are known to dissolve the bilayer lipid membrane of influenza viruses, but the exact mechanism behind this effect remains unclear.

The anti-influenza effects of the surfactants that are used in hand soaps: sodium Laureth sulfate(LES), sodium lauryl sulfate(SDS). For a strain of human influenza virus (H3N2) C18:1 decreased the infectivity 4 logs or higher, whereas LES, SDS, and LES reduced it 1 log or lower. A strain of avian influenza (H5N3) produced similar results. By using isothermal titration, the interaction between virus and surfactant was investigated. The LES-virus showed a value of enthalpy (DH) that was positive, indicating an interaction with a hydrophobic nature. Both the C18-1-virus and SDS-virus systems showed negative values of DH. These indicate an endothermic reaction that indicates an electrical interaction. The DH value for the C181 virus system was significantly higher than that of SDS. A mixture of C18 and HA protein also showed negative values for DH.

These results show that the hydrophobic interaction between a surfactant and the viral envelope, is not sufficient to prevent infection. Inactivation through an electrical interaction between a surfactant and HA proteins can prevent infection.

2. Fatty acid potassium had bactericidal properties and removed Staphylococcus aureus biofilms. It also showed reduced cytotoxicity to mouse fibroblasts as well as human keratinocytes.

Wounds are often infected with bacteria. Potassium C18:1K, a type potassium fatty acids, reduced the number of Staphylococcus Aureus and Escherichia Coli by >4 logs/mL within 10 min. Clostridium Difficult was reduced by >2 logs/mL within 1 min. C181K (proportion of biofilm removed: 90.3%), was significantly more efficient at removing Staphylococcus spp. biofilms compared to the synthetic surfactant soaps sodium laurylether (SLES) (74.8%) and sodium sulfate 78.0% (p 0.01);

In the water-soluble tetrazolium (WST) assay, BALB/3T3 cloneA31 mouse fibroblasts in C18:1K demonstrated significantly higher viability (relative to control: 102.8%) than those in SLES (31.1%) or SLS (18.1%, P 0.05). C181K (relative leaked vs. the control: 1089%) was associated with a lower LDH from mouse fibroblasts compared to SLES and SLS (702.6% and 523.4%), respectively (p 0.05). Potassium-oleate exhibited bactericidal properties against various species such as Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coelia, Bacillus cereus and Clostridium difficilis.

It is essential to disinfect and remove bacteria that cause infection, including Staphylococcus arus, MRSA and biofilm forming MRSA. We investigated whether natural soaps that are free of additives, preservatives and synthetic materials could be used to achieve this goal. In order to determine the effectiveness of different types of fatty-acid potassium in removing MRSA, we investigated their cytotoxicity and bactericidal properties.
