Since the Cleaning Line was just an idea, we knew that our environmental and quality commitment should be reflected in our new products. Due to the above, we have been careful when selecting the raw materials, looking for each one of them to be biodegradable, without nonylphenol compounds and mostly approved by the FDA. In this way we managed to develop up to 100% biodegradable detergents, free of phosphates and nonylphenol, avoiding a negative effect and accumulation on bodies of water and their ecosystem.
- Free of nonylphenols: these compounds are deposited in the tissues of fish, aquatic organisms, and mammals, generating a negative effect on their sexual development, which leads to an ecological imbalance.
- Phosphate-free: high phosphate levels in lakes and streams promote algae and aquatic weed blooms, which end up killing fish by depriving them of oxygen in the water.
- Biodegradable: detergents are easily degraded by microorganisms and therefore take a short time to disappear, avoiding water pollution and accumulation in rivers or landfills.
In fact, did you know that…
-The bioaccumulation of nonyphenol generates in fish alterations in the synthesis of the protein associated with vitellogenin, causing a multihormonal lack of control that causes the feminization of fish.
-In mammals, such as male mice, adverse effects appear associated with hormonal deficiencies, fructose metabolism disorders and testicular oxidative damage.
