We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children - ancient Indian proverb
Also, as we are not alone on our planet and as we value what we will handover to our kids, protecting our environment is not a marketing argument at Oakshed & Sons, but a given.
As transmission to the new generation is important to us, we built our product range around biodegradable and natural ingredients, offering the first allergen free efficient solution that do not harm our land: plant-based surfactants, Carnauba wax, natural polymers and plant extracts and low mineral oil usages make our products best in class in terms of environment friendliness and caring efficiency!
Most of our products are defined as 'readily biodegradable' which means that they have the natural ability to biodegrade to their natural state, when subjected to sunlight, water and microbial activity, from 60% to 100% in 28 days.
Of course, we are conscious that we are not yet able to remove tar residues with water only. This is why we still have light petroleum distillates in our Wax. But this level of these distillates are such that we fulfil all regulations on compound usage - guaranteeing a regular domestic usage.
And we do continue our R&D development to reach 100% biodegradable ingredients, keeping the high efficiency of our product range as the key driver.
