Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Overall, the weight of evidence suggests that ‘soaps, stocks, vegetable oil, acidulated’ will not bioaccumulate in aquatic or terrestrial organisms, even after repeated exposure.

Additional information

‘Soaps, stocks, vegetable oil, acidulated’ presents low solubility in water and is readily biodegradable. As such this would lead to relatively low concentrations of the substance in the aquatic environment thereby leading to low concentrations in aquatic organisms. Further, the low estimated BCF values from QSAR models as well as from an in vitro bioaccumulation study (Freitag, 1985) together with toxicokinetic information from mammals, all suggests that none of the constituents is likely to bioaccumulate significantly in aquatic or terrestrial organisms. In addition the fish has metabolic potential to break down the triglycerides and their constituent fatty acids and use as an important source of metabolic energy for growth and reproduction (Tocher, 2003).
