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. This fatty acid is 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 is able to kill all types 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, 1910.1200 ESTABLISHES THIS SUBSTANCE AS HAZARDOUS. Eyes, respiratory system, and skin irritant. 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 food or in the manufacturing of food components”, as long as the FDA states that it will act as a binder, an emulsifier or anti-caking agent. Potassium Oleate may also be used to clean household products.

What uses does potassium oleate have?

Potassium isoleate acts as a potassium catalyst, and trimerization catalyst for polyurethane rigid polisocyanurate. 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 soap-making ingredient to make 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%) are a colorless or light yellow viscous fluid, pasty potassium (potassium content 50%) is a light to medium brown viscous silky liquid, paste potassium (potassium content 70-92%) is a soft light yellow paste, and potassium oleate powder (potassium content greater than 95%) is light to medium 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, olive 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 an epidemic avian flu virus H5N1 subtype or H7N9 could occur in the future.

Influenza virus can be treated and prevented with vaccines. 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 soaps and their foaming. It is made of fatty acids and natural oils. Soap can be used for hand soap. Surfactants are known to dissolve the bilayer membrane lipid of influenza virus particle, 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 a hydrophobic exothermic interaction. Both the C18-1-virus and SDS-virus systems showed negative values of DH. These indicate an endothermic reaction that indicates an electrical reaction. The DH value for the C18:1 virus system was significantly higher than that of SDS. A mixture of C18 and HA protein also showed negative DH values.

These results indicate influenza virus inactivation through hydrophobic interaction between a surfactant and the viral envelope, is not sufficient to prevent infection. Inactivation via electrical interaction of surfactant proteins with HA is sufficient to stop influenza virus 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 minutes. Clostridium Difficult was reduced by >2 logs/mL within one minute. C181K (proportion of biofilms removed: 90.3%), was more effective than synthetic surfactant cleaners sodium laurylethersulfate(SLES) (74.8%) and sodium sulfatesulfate(SLS)78.0% p0.05 in removing Staphylococcus.

In the water-soluble tetrazolium (WST) assay, BALB/3T3 cloneA31 mouse fibroblasts in C18-1K (relative viable vs. Control: 102.8%) showed a significantly higher viability in comparison to those in SLES (30.1%) 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 different species such as Staphylococcus, Escherichia Coli, Bacillus Cereus and Clostridium difficilis.

It is essential to disinfect and remove bacteria that cause infection, including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA and its biofilm forming form. 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.
