Ingredients

Icon

surfactant

What it does:
Surfactants are compounds which adjust the surface tension of a liquid.
Summary:
Surfactants contain a hydrophobic group (the surfactant tail), and a hydrophilic group (the surfactant head). This means the tail is repelled from the water surface, and the head is attracted to the water surface, so they orientate themselves with the tail of the surfactant out of the water. The tail of a surfactant is usually oil soluble, which means it traps the oil by surrounding the oil droplet, preventing the oil from sticking back onto the surface being cleaned.
Other:
Surfactants are one of the most versatile chemicals and are found in soaps, shampoos, detergents and many other household chemicals.
Icon

solvent

What it does:
Helps all of the chemicals mix together into a solution.
Summary:
A solvent is basically a chemical in which other chemicals can be dissolved to create a solution. A solution could be as simple as sugar water, where the water is acting as a solvent to dissolve the sugar. Solvents are used in detergent to both help other chemicals dissolve into a solution, but also to dissolve dirt on a surface and hold it in the cleaning solution to be removed from the surface being cleaned.
Other:
Solvents are generally considered to be nasty chemicals, but even water is classed as a solvent when used to dissolve another liquid.

preservative

What it does:
Prevents the dilute product from spoiling over time by preventing bacterial growth.
Summary:
Preservatives are found in many everyday products including the foods which we eat. Chemical preservatives are used in most water based solutions. Our products contain a preservative, so that once you add water at home, you can be sure the product will provide the same levels of hygiene and safety as the products you used to use!
Other:
There are many different methods of preserving a product, with the first preservation of food believed to date back to 10,000 BC. Other methods of preservation include drying, freezing, curing and canning (which eliminates the oxygen required for bacteria to grow!).

chelating agents

What it does:
Helps to soften water used to dilute the pod, and aids in the removal of soapscum and limescale.
Summary:
Chelating agents work by removing the ionic charge which many molecules have. Removing the ionic charge means the minerals in water can be dissolved by a solvent, and this also works to remove molecules with charged ions such as soapscum and limescale from you bathroom surfaces.
Other:
Chelating agents are also used to help dissolve the mineral found in hard water areas. This is important for our product, because the product needs to give you the best performance no matter how hard or soft is the water in your area.
Icon

Ph adjusters

What it does:
Adjusts the pH to make the product suitable for a wide range of surfaces.
Summary:
pH is a scale of how acid or alkaline a substance is. The pH scale ranges from 1-14, 1 being extreme acid, and 14 being extreme alkaline. When creating a formulation, some chemicals will have their own pH at which they are most stable before being blended into a solution. Sometimes it is necessary to then adjust the final formulation to make the product suitable for a wide variety of surfaces, and to do this the addition of a pH adjuster is necessary.
Other:
Our product pH is tailored to suit the use of the product, for example a kitchen cleaner is designed to be mildly alkaline which helps with the breakdown of fats and grease.

bottle for life

Icon Icon

The functional life of plastic bottles greatly exceeds the short time it takes to use the liquid in "pre-mixed" cleaning sprays. This is why we decided to launch our 'Bottle for Life'. Breaking away from our current buying habits is key to preventing the irreversible damage that our oceans face.

Every time we buy another "pre-mixed" cleaning spray, it tells manufacturers to keep producing single-use plastic bottles. With just one purchase you can break this cycle and switch over to a reusable plastic bottle. When used with Oceansaver Drops, our 'Bottle for Life' helps to reduce plastic consumption!

If your 'Bottle for Life' is damaged or stops working as a result of wear and tear, Oceansaver agrees to replace the damaged component (either bottle or trigger spray).
