Plant-based formulation exclusively made from renewable resources, gentle care for fibers, healthy for users and for the environment.
There is now an international awareness aimed at limiting the risks linked to the use of chemical products (Adoption of the Global Harmonized System by the UNO). In addition, the recent European Regulations (REACH 1907/2006, biocides: 528/2012) aims to restrict the distribution of dangerous chemical components as well as strictly regulate their use.
Daily use of laundry detergents generates enormous waste water discharges, knowing that 7.3 billion detergents are used per year in France, which represents 231 washing every second. These discharges can be hazardous to aquatic organisms in the short or long term, in addition due to the volume of discharges made. The detergents, perfumes, and other synthetic chemical additives in conventional detergents are not completely biodegraded in the environment and accumulate there. The regulation (Detergent Regulation N° 648/2004) requires a minimum rate of biodegradability (60% in 28 days) applicable only on part of the ingredients of the formula (surfactants) and not all components mixture. Some substances, with only a primary biodegradability, are particularly dangerous to the environment because of their degradation residues which are even more toxic than the original molecule. Not biodegraded, these releases will generate adverse effects to aquatic organisms at more or less long term, preventing some species from developing and hustling the whole ecosystem.
Besides the issue of the environment, we must not forget that the clothes washed and dried always involves detergent residues, which come into direct contact with the skin.
The almost systematic presence of synthetic preservatives (eg MIT), recognized as allergenic, is noted in conventional detergents, even for those adapted for sensitive skin. The Scientific Committee for Consumer Safety said in 2014: "the dramatic increase of allergies’ cases to MIT is an unprecedented phenomenon." The fragrances in detergents are in most cases synthetic fragrances accompanied with fixing agents, which allows the clothes to remain fragrant when dry. However, these molecules trapped in the fibers of the clothes, such as optical brighteners, are also responsible of skin irritation phenomena.
SALVECO®, CHEMISTRY INSPIRED BY THE FUTURE
Salveco® detergent for laundry is made exclusively with ingredients 100 % from renewable resources and presents an ultimate biodegradability on 100 % of its formula. It has no toxicity to aquatic organisms. Without synthetic fragrance or preservatives, its use is safe for the environment and especially for the user:
"My 3 year old child had a problem of contact dermatitis, and that since childhood, at the whole body and I used a classic laundry. I tried many creams and other skin treatments but no improvement in sight. I then thought of irritation possible residues left by washing his clothes so I washed his clothes with Salveco® laundry, and gradually his eczema was reduced to disappear completely today. "
- Consumer reviews 2014
Its effectiveness is equivalent to the market-leading products: 74% of the testers found Salveco equivalent to their usual laundry detergent *, with an impression of softness linen, and naturalness of lovely perfume.
