Tromethamine affects the balance of water and electrolytes in the body.
- Tromethamine is used to treat metabolic acidosis (an electrolyte imbalance). Metabolic acidosis can have many causes. It often occurs after heart bypass surgery or cardiac arrest.
- Tromethamine is considered a low hazard ingredient by the Cosmetics Database, which notes concerns regarding neurotoxicity and organ system toxicity, stemming from animal studies that showed brain and nervous system effects at moderate doses. The EWG also cites data gaps and a lack of information available regarding Tromethamine. No other studies were found that noted negative side effects when applying Tromethamine topically.
