Edetate Disodium

Dow VERSENE™ NA Edetate Disodium Chelating Agent, USP grade, is a highly effective stabilizer and preservative formulated to address pharmaceutical preparation challenges. A white to off-white powder, it is well suited for applications calling for neutral pH or mildly acidic conditions common to most pharmaceutical products.

When used in an ocular or oral solution:

  • Fully soluble in water and does not form a haze or cloud in solution
  • Works immediately to control oxidation and keeps working over the lifetime of the product
  • Extends shelf life by boosting anti-microbial performance

When used in a topical formulation:

  • Fully dissolves and does not leave grittiness
  • Controls oxidation which could lead to undesired color or fragrance changes
  • Boosts preservation package without changing pH of formulation
