Carnauba wax and beeswax are natural waxes which are biodegradable. Soap made from organic olive oil, like all vegetable soaps, has one outstanding feature compared to all the other active washing substances, namely that, right after its use, it reacts chemically with the limescale always present in waste water, resulting in calcium soap, thus neutralising its surfactant effect on aquatic organisms (primary degradation). The calcium soap is then, by microorganisms, 100 % degraded into carbon dioxide and water (secondary degradation). Despite the fact that during the manufacturing of sugar surfactants, constituents are being extracted from the plant-based raw materials, i.e. starch, sugar, and fat, they remain completely intact in their natural molecular structure. For this reason it is relatively easy for the microorganisms to 100 % decompose these surfactants. Soap and sugar surfactants are classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.

Origin and properties of the ingredients
Beeswax and carnauba wax are used for, with a thin wax layer, gently protecting all surfaces made from wood, cork, linoleum, stone, etc. The organic carnauba wax is obtained from the leaves of the South American carnauba palm. Beeswax is a side product of apiculture whilst honey is being extracted from honeycombs by centrifuging.
The basis of this floor mopping fluid is organic olive-oil soap. Pure certified organically grown olive oil, by means of potassium hydroxide solution, is made into soap using a simple process without being exposed to external energy supply. Thanks to its slightly lipid-replenishing characteristics, the olive oil supports both wax components in their nourishing properties, furthermore having outstanding cleansing properties.
Ethanol, obtained by fermenting farinaceous plants or sugar-containing by-products such as molasses, helps maintaining the soap fluid, thus enabling a highly concentrated liquid product. Apart from its pleasantly refreshing fragrance, essential cajuput oil has a germ-inhibiting effect.
