POEA (Polyethoxylated tallow amine) is commonly used in Glyphosates. Cut’n’Paste and Bamboo Buster use very reduced quantities of alkyl polyglocosite surfactants (3 – 5%). POEA has been traced to toxicity in native reptiles. [From Wikipedia the following A review of the literature provided to the EPA in 1997 found that POEA was generally more potent in causing toxicity to aquatic organisms than glyphosate and that POEA becomes more potent in more alkaline environments. (Potency is measured by the median lethal dose (LD50); a low LC50 means that just a little of the substance is lethal; a high LC50 means that it takes a high dose to kill.) Glyphosate has an LC50 ranging from 4.2 that of POEA for midge larvae at pH 6.5, to 369 times that of POEA for rainbow trout at pH 9.5 (for comparison, at pH 6.5 the LC50 of glyphosate was 70 times that of POEA for rainbow trout).:18]
CUT’N’PASTE AND BAMBOO BUSTER USE ALKYL POLYGLOCOSITE AT 3 – 5%
