- Bacteriostatic Agent: A biological agent that stops bacterial growth, without killing the organisms.
- Enzyme: A naturally occurring proteinase that aids the break down of tough stains, particularly in cold water.
The enzyme myth: It is a common misconception that enzymes in biological laundry detergent cause skin irritation, this is in fact a myth. The primary reason for skin irritation is the alkaline ph level which is often up to 10 in regular Laundry Detergents (Bleach is 12+). Our strips have a neutral ph (7) which is the equivalent of water, they are hypoallergenic and great for sensitive skin.
Why we use enzymes: Enzymes are naturally occurring proteins that help breakdown tough stains, especially in cold water. They enable people to do more cold water laundry and to put delicate clothes (e.g. silk) in the same washes. Saving a lot of energy and reducing environmental impact.
