General rule of thumb when a product is available as a technical grade.
There are some basic guidelines when we look at a technical grade. Any application is forbidden if in touch with the skin, food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics or personal care products. Also banned is anything ingested, inhaled, or a surface that could contact the skin, such as sidewalks and kitchen or washroom sinks.
