Ingredient details
Sodium Polyaspartate is a sodium salt of polyaspartic acid. We use this ingredient in some of our laundry and dishwasher products to help prevent corrosion and scaling in the machines. Sodium polyaspartate is biodegradable and can be synthesised in an environmentally responsible way, making it a more sustainable alternative to materials like sodium polyacrylate Ð which is used in agriculture and some disposable nappies.
