Re: hand wipe cleaning

p2 people:

Another question about terpenes asked by one of our manufacturers:

Is anyone aware of any data showing that terpenes are photoreactive?

Dibasic esters are known to cause eye-problems in high concentrations and EPA
has recently required the manufacturer  to conduct neuro-toxicity testing.  It
is considered to be quite toxic.  It also leaves a residue like terpenes.
Another potential but unacceptable alternative is n-methyl pyrrolidone which is
a reproductive & developmental toxin and was recently added to SARA Title 3.In
California, it has been proposed for addition to Proposition 65 which lists
carcinogens and reproductives toxins.
