Someone said that 3% hydrogen Peroxide by Aaron Industries that a person can buy at Walmart does not have any stabilizers. I looked at their ingredients and all it says is hydrogen peroxide and water. Would this be the same as 35% food grade? Thanks
my understanding is all 3% h2o2 has some impurities, aka stabilizers...and you will never se this on any lable. That's why I could never understand why pharmacists would look askance at people buying it, always concerened if they were going to use it internally--I mean, how could it be a bad thing, if it's just H202, right?
If you have any concern at all about purity, -and I think such concern is warrented, if you are going to use it for healing purposes, I'd get the 35% food grade.
I contacted Aaron industries (sold at Walmart), their Hydrogen-Peroxid starts with Technical Grade in bulk (WITH stabilizers) and they add pure water to that. So, no, do not use this brand internally, it is not food grade.
Think about it, food grade is only about $50 gal with s/h, so why risk it with others just because it is .98 cents per quart? The 3% non-food grade equates to about the same price per gallon anyway, so you don't save anything, but add stabilizers to your already toxic body.
Even if you only wanted just a quart, isn't it worth the extra $49.02 to be safe and get the food grade? (and you have an extra 3 quarts for later)
I don't know who you are or where you're getting your intell, but Aaron's is a Kosher, non-synthetic company. I just got off the phone with their Hydrogen Peroxide Rep who assured me their policies(and ownership) have not changed. If you go to their website, then go directly to the Hydrogen Peroxide page, click "MSDS" at the bottom--this will bring your to ALL ingredients including stablizing substances. Here's the link but not sure if it will be attached to message:
This is their "Material Safety Data Sheet" --IF there were any stablizers or unsafe materials in this product, they would be required by law to list dangerous ingredients under "Hazardous Ingredients." Of which there are "none."
You should really fact-check BEFORE you list information as "fact." I'm sure someone simply told you this, or could be deliberately misleading--whichever, you are incorrect. However, Aaron's is VERY QUICK to tell all who call there have been no studies done on ingesting H2O2. They must, to avoid lawsuits from improperly informed consumers that don't kno---->you must ONLY use at the most ONE HALF TO ONE TEASPOON of Hydrogen-Peroxid for every 16 oz of purified water. I started with 1/4 tsp. in 12 oz. of Reverse Osmosis Water.
The answer someone gave misled you to believe that Aaron's DOES have stablizers. It does not. I just got off the phone with their Rep who said Aaron's does not and has not ever had stablizers, synthetics, metals, toxins, or preservatives . They also don't advocate drinking it as even drinking 3% Hydrogen-Peroxid is dangerous at best. It must be properly diluted, but of course Aaron's isn't a Physician and would never advise you to do this.
By law, even at a 3% mix--they must tell you it's for topical use only.
No disrespect, EFHerne, but you and the Aarons rep are both mistaken, google to see that the main ingredient = "CAS 7722-84-1" WHICH ACTUALLY IS: stablized "Hydrogen peroxide, aqueous solution, with not less than 20% but not more than 60% Hydrogen peroxide (stabilized as necessary)" and "stabilizers are traditionally metal chelating agents and colloids including stannates, pyrophosphates and organophosphonates, which very well may be enough to cause known, as well as unknown, but most of all unwanted side effects, such as cancer or Alzheimers, or who knows what, if nebulized for a small child for instance! Please only use food grade internally!!! I am all for healthy alternatives but only if done safely tho!!! Might not matter now, but what about when someone is old, like me, or a child or grand baby is older, like mine, and it causes illness even worse than you are treating!
OTC pharmacy, hydrogen peroxide MOST DEFINITELY DOES contain Stabilizers = metal chelating agents, colloids,stannates, pyrophosphates,organophosphonates, any or all of these ingredients may be used in stabilizing and noone needs them in our blood, lung, or tissue if avoidable, so please do not let anyone mislead you!! Be healthy + be smart!
"What stabilizer additives are in commercial solutions of hydrogen peroxide and why?
The main function of stabilizers is to reduce catalytic decomposition induced by transition metals and other contaminants. If the product is diluted, as in 3 percent topical solutions, or is used in formulations that could accelerate decomposition, a higher level of stabilization is required. If high purity is required, low levels of stabilizers must suffice. Stabilizers are traditionally metal chelating agents and colloids including stannates, pyrophosphates and organophosphonates. Stabilizer levels vary from 0 to several thousand mg/l each depending on the grade."
Just because h2o2 is labeled CAS 7722-84-1 that does not mean it has stabilizers. If it's BP or USP Grade then it's probably free from stabilizers and contaminants. I'm sure some jerks will slip it in, but most use it because it's pure. The CAS 7722-84-1 brand is USP grade for Aaron's.
