Max head oral sex gel and Tetrasodiuim EDTA

I recently purchased the Max head oral sex gel in Sugar Daddy and I quite liked the taste of it. I was checking out the product page again thinking of ordering more and I noticed that someone left a comment on the page saying something like "Don't put EDTA in your mouth".

Well that got me curious and I googled it to see why the person would say that. I found bits and read over this:
"The Cosmetics Database considers Tetrasodium EDTA a low to moderate hazard ingredient, depending on its usage. It notes concerns regarding cancer, enhanced skin absorption, organ system toxicity and irritation (due to animal studies that showed skin irritation at low doses). It is classified as a high human health priority and expected to be toxic or harmful.

However, tests done by the CIR (which are not corroborated) found that Tetrasodium EDTA is not a dermal irritant or a sensitizer, and is not absorbed by skin easily. "Because these ingredients bind metals required for normal cell division, some studies that indicated that these compounds were weakly mutagenic. Some studies showed reproductive and developmental effects following oral exposure to large doses of metal chelators, likely an effect of the binding of metals required for normal reproduction and development" (RealSelf.com). It found that cosmetics and personal care products containing these ingredients would result in very little skin penetration and systemic levels well below those shown to produce adverse effects in oral studies.

Tetrasodium EDTA has been found to be an ecotoxin, however. "Widespread use of EDTA and its slow removal under many environmental conditions has led to its status as the most abundant anthropogenic compound in many European surface waters ... and has emerged as a persistent organic pollutant" .


SO, now I'm wondering....is Max head okay to use? I admit, I'm afraid to even use this on my guy again =/

I don't have a definitive answer for you because I don't know the concentration of EDTA in Max Head oral sex gel. However, here is some information to put in perspective based on this scientific article: link

According to the article, the lowest reported dose to cause a toxic effect in animals is 750 mg/kg/day. For a person weighing 125 lbs, this is equal to over 42,600 mg a day.

According to the article, the typical EDTA concentration in cosmetic products is 2%, which converts to 20 mg/mL. So the 125 lb person would have to consume 2,130 mL or 426 teaspoons (almost 9 cups).

(Hopefully I did the conversions correctly if someone wants to double check my math )

So as you can see, EDTA appears to be safe at typical levels found in cosmetics. However, what is unknown is the concentration in this product. I hope this helps.
