Low hazard for health. Synthetic, biodegradable and suitable for Greywater and septic tanks.

Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate is a preservative used in our products to prevent them from going 'off'. This preservative can be a bit controversial as it is a formaldehyde releaser. Although Formaldehyde can be toxic, if you take into account that your body produces a small amount of formaldehyde, and compare the amount of formaldehyde in your blood to the amount of formaldehyde in our products, there is about 35 times less formaldehyde in our products (such as baby sleepy time bubble bath). We also have specific enzymes in our body that are made to ‘eat up’ formaldehyde, meaning that it can never accumulate to a toxic level.
