The following text is copied from the OECD SIDS document for sodium percarbonate (OECD 2006), section 2.2.6:

"When sodium percarbonate is dissolved in water, it dissociates to sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. The sodium ion and carbonate ion will not accumulate in living tissues (OECD, 2003). Hydrogen peroxide is reactive and a short-lived polar substance and no bioaccumulation is expected (European Commission, 2003b; OECD, 1999)."
