    Hi, is anybody able to tell me if any of the below ingredients contain any bleaching properties to surfaces/fabrics and/or irritable to skin?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    CAS-NO: 100-79-8

    EINECS-No. : 202-888-7

    I Googled the CAS entry and browsed several hits. Some said skin irritant and some said not a skin irritant. All said eye and respiratory irritant. My quick look did not find mention of bleaching. Suggest you contact an organic chemist.

    This site has links to may others and has some info where not to use (cosmetics, flavoring):

    Safety in Use Information:
    Category: cosmetic agents
    Recommendation for acetone glycerol usage levels up to:
    not for fragrance use.

    Recommendation for acetone glycerol flavor usage levels up to:
    not for flavor use.
