We are often asked “What is your technology?” or “What are your active ingredients?”
Quite simply they are just metal oxides. Metal oxides are in general considered safe compounds and are often found in a variety of safe consumer and food products. The magic is we are able to make them more active than when they are mined straight out of the ground. EnviroKlenz products are made from various combinations of the following active metal oxides powders:
- Magnesium Oxide (MgO)
- Zinc Oxide (ZnO)
- Titanium Dioxide (TiO2)
We combine our powders to achieve the right balance to suit the desired application. Our unique production processes yield materials that have broad chemical neutralization abilities.
As EnviroKlenz product come into contact with chemical pollutants in circulating air or on surfaces, the product’s chemistry attaches to and reacts with the pollutants and/or destroys/neutralizes the pollutant.
We have always been transparent in what our EnviroKlenz products are made from, they have been listed on this site and the material safety data sheets (MSDS/SDS) from day 1, but perhaps it’s the simplicity of the compounds coupled with their broad capabilities that still brings the questions to our inbox. To take it a step further:
- We do not dope our metal oxides with chemicals
- We do not smash our materials into nanoparticles
Our active materials are:
- Micron-sized powders or larger granulated versions
Our processes safely enhance the neutralizing ability of these materials and extensive safety evaluations have been conducted on the materials. Our powders are sometimes used in alternate forms such as suspensions and granules. When we produce those forms we avoid additives and unnecessary compounds that may be problematic for chemically sensitive individuals. That is why we keep the ingredient list short. Some of the other materials used in specific product applications include:
- Water – in our liquid based products to aid dispersal and contact with the chemical odor that needs to be neutralized
- Soda Ash – in our powder laundry enhancer for material handling and dispersal in the wash water
- Magnesium hydroxide – in our liquid products (since MgO inherently converts to that in the presence of water)
These products are versatile, durable, and reliable chemical neutralizers that are strong enough to eliminate stubborn odors, but gentle enough to use around your family and pets. EnviroKlenz products contain no masking agents or perfumes that leave behind residual scents, making it ideal for use on a day-to-day basis to eliminate household odors like sweat, smoke, pet odors and household cleaners.
