I have a new product, just recieved the quote for product liability insurance on this product. I know that each product as an ingredient has been rated for "insurability". I am trying to educate myself to go back to the insureance company and educate them on the fact that these ingredients are harmless, but I need to gather the info. Does someone somewhere know where I can get this type of info. An ingredient that I use is boric acid and sodium borate.

You mean like MSDS? or general knowledge?

Boric acid:
http://ull.chemistry.uakron.edu/erd/chemicals/9/8332.html
MSDS http://physchem.ox.ac.uk/MSDS/BO/boric_acid.html

Sodium borate (Borax, or Sodium borate decahydrate):
http://ull.chemistry.uakron.edu/erd/chemicals/8/7379.html
MSDS http://www.sciencestuff.com/msds/C2545.html

Also note... the concentration of a chemical (powdered dry, 100% solution, etc) can have a large effect on the safety rating. For example: "Dilute acetic acid (in the form of vinegar) is harmless and has been consumed for millennia. However, ingestion of stronger solutions is dangerous. It can cause severe damage to the digestive system, and a potentially lethal change in the acidity of the blood.". So you may want to google for the MSDS of the concentration you are dealing with.
