Description of key information

Toxicity to soil microorganisms:

Considering the use of chemical 1-Propanaminium, 3-amino-N-(carboxymethyl)-N,N-dimethyl-, N-coco acyl derivs., hydroxides, inner salts as a foam booster in shampoos; it is a medium strength surfactant also used in bath products like hand soaps; also used in cosmetics as an emulsifying agent and thickener & even if the chemical is accidentally exposed to the soil compartment, there is likely to be little or moderate adsorption of chemical in soil compartment on the basis of log Koc value (2.156 to 2.811) and its half-life period in soil is 30 days, thus it is not persistent in soil compartment and the direct & indirect exposure of chemical in the soil compartment is unlikely.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
