EC number: 232-384-2 | CAS number: 8012-95-1 Liquid hydrocarbons from petroleum.
Aliphatic hydrocarbon C>16 (C16 –C35) fraction may be poorly absorbed via oral, inhalation or dermal exposure routes, distributed to the liver and fatty tissues, slowly metabolized to fatty acids or triglycerides, and excreted with the feces via the bile and as urine metabolites.
The data on toxicokinetics of Mineral Paraffin Oil suggest that long-chain aliphatic hydrocarbons have only limited absorption potential after inhalation, oral and ingestion exposure routes. Thus, animal studies show that up to 95 -99% of ingested food-grade mineral oil leaves the body unchanged with the faeces, and only up to 5% being absorbed via the intestinal mucosa. The absorbed Mineral Paraffin Oil is distributed to the liver and fatty tissues. Aliphatic hydrocarbons in this fraction are not expected to undergo extensive metabolism in animals or humans.
