Origin and properties of the ingredients:
Pumice is a fluffy, soft, vulcanic stone, derived from rapidly cooled off lava. The fast cooling process prevents the formation of sharp-edged crystals. Finely ground, it is, therefore, an extremely gentle yet effective cleaning material. Sodium carbonate and soap endow the cleaning agent with its superior grease- and dirt-dissolving performance. Once the dirt has come loose, it is absorbed by the natural alumina thanks to the excellent swelling and bonding properties of the latter. The essential oils made from sage and cajuput (of the family Myrtaceae) give a pleasant, fresh fragrance and have a germ-inhibiting effect.
Special product feature:
Contrary to liquid products, which consist of 70–80% of water, the stringent ecological requirements, i. e. combining the highest level of active substances with the lowest possible transport weight, are met by the cleaning agents in powder form. Consequently, this is a highly economical and efficient cleaning agent.
Density: (20 °C) approx. 0.5 – 0.6 g / cm³
pH value: (20 °C, 5 g / l H2O) approx. 9–10
The main ingredients of this cleaning agent are stone meal and soil rich in silicates. These are immediately reintegrated into nature, and there is absolutely no need for them to be degraded. Sodium carbonate being a mineral substance does not need any further degradation either. Soap made from vegetable oils 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). Soap is classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.
