Bio-Based Testing Biobased Determination using ASTM-D6866-11 Laboratory: Beta Analytic, Inc. (312890) Date: 01/03/12 Result: 80% Biobased Readily Biodegradable OECD 301 B ‐ Solution Biodegradation by CO2 Evolution Laboratory: Situ BioSciences LLC (1211-ADN-01–1) Date: 02/10/2012 Result: Sample demonstrated ready biodegradability according to the conditions set forth in OECD 301B requirements of achieving the 60% conversion of carbon to carbon dioxide within the required timeframe. From the test analysis, the sample achieved a ThCO2 value of >80% by the end of the test period based on the total carbon content. Non-Toxic to Aquatic Life ASTM 5660 ‐ Assessing the Microbial Detoxification of Chemically Contaminated Water and Soil Using a Toxicity Test with a Luminescent Marine Bacterium Laboratory: Situ BioSciences LLC (1211-ADN-01–1) Date: 02/10/2012 Results: The IC(20) values determined indicate that the test formulations would not be expected to inhibit biodegradation by environmental microorganisms. Performance Tested Comparative Hand Cleaner Performance Test Report Date: 12/29/11 (B4-CPT-FHS-01) Summary: Handwashing is a functional activity and a multi-sensory experience. The performance of a hand soap includes its functional ability to lift and remove soils from the skin, to condition the skin, to provide a pleasant olfactory experience, and to create a pleasant skin feel following the wash. The objective of this study is to determine the functional and sensory performance of a test product compared to a national brand, using a fixed and repeatable procedure. Performance attributes to be measured are: 1. Cleaning Ability: A measure of the ability of the formulation to help lift and remove soil from the skin. 2. Richness of Lather: A measure of the volume of lather generated by the test product, water, and scrubbing action. 3. Pleasantness of Scent: A measure of scent of the formulation from pleasant to unpleasant. 4. Speed of Rinsing: A measure of the time it takes for the dirt and lather to be rinsed from the hands. 5. Skin Condition After Use: A measure of the overall skin condition after use to include softness or roughness, hydrated or dry, tacky or prepared. Result: The results of this Comparative Hand Cleaner Performance Test indicate that Aterra Eco-Premium Foaming Hand Soap performed as well or better than the Comparative Formulation in all performance measures.
