More on SDA

SDA (SDAG-3 in Canada) is used extensively in the production of perfumes, cosmetics, and hand sanitizer.

This product is denatured with Bitrex, an intensely bitter but odorless compound that renders the alcohol undrinkable. A permit may be required to use this product.

SDAs are often used in cosmetic products, sanitizer products, and can also be used in chemical manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, and solvents.
