Origin and properties of the ingredients
Soap being an active washing substance, it is obtained by simply boiling fats with alkaline solution. Every fat base differs in its washing properties somewhat from another because of their diversity of origin. Coconut oil as soap base, therefore, possesses particularly good cleaning performance, even in hard water. Soap made from palm oil contributes the required firmness and resistance. The two soaps combined thus form the optimal basis for fully developing the stain-removing property of the gall substance.
Soap is slightly alkaline in use. The green chlorophyll colouration of the bars of soap may become lighter by exposure to light. This does not, however, impair the stain-removing performance of the gall soap. The brownish colour appearing is the natural colour of gall.
Right after its use soap loses its surfactant properties (primary degradation) under direct reaction with limescale which is always present in waste water, thus being no longer inimical to live organisms. The calcium soap (formed by the reaction) is then 100 % micro-organically decomposed into carbon dioxide and water (secondary degradation). Bovine gall being a purely natural product is fully degraded within a few days, and reintegrated into the natural cycle. Soap is classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.
