further information on INCI names

Origin and properties of the ingredients:
Silicates are obtained by fusing sand with sodium carbonate and, thanks to their alkalinity, are capable of modifying grease on dishes by saponification, thus making it water-soluble. These silicates make stuck-on food leftovers swell, thus loosening them. Sodium carbonate, manufactured from common salt and lime, disperses the grease into fine droplets, thus supporting the fat-dissolving property of the silicates. Citrate, obtained by fermenting sugar-containing by-products such as molasses, is added to the dishwasher detergent in order to bind lime in the dishwashing water and to protect the machine from deposits, since it is a well-known fact that many dishwashers do not soften the water sufficiently, despite built-in ion exchanger (water softener devices).

Special product feature:
Notwithstanding the fact that, for this product, we abstain from using any aggressive chlorinated bleaching agents, phosphates, synthetic protective substances for silverware, enzymes, etc, it cleans even stubborn dirt with exceptional ease.

Biodegradability:
Approx. 70–80% of the dishwashing detergent’s ingredients (silicates and sodium carbonate) are mineral substances which in nature need no further decomposition. Citrate, a substance present in plants, animals and humans, is completely degraded by nature, thanks to naturally present microorganisms.
