Zeolite, sodium carbonate, sodium citrate> further information on INCI namesOrigin and properties of the ingredients:
Zeolite A (sodium aluminium silicate), the softener’s main ingredient, is made from the raw materials sodium silicate and sodium aluminate which are easily accessible. This silicate works according to the principle of the ion exchange device, i.e. trapping the calcium and magnesium ions the cause of hard water, thus producing soft water for washing with soap detergents. Soda (sodium carbonate) manufactured from calcium and common salt, reacts chemically with the limescale in the water, thus eliminating from the washing water one of the causes of its hardness. Citrate, the salt of citric acid, obtained by fermenting sugar-containing by-products such as molasses, binds limestone particularly at low temperatures.
Special product feature:
By adding the softener separately after previously having determined the amount necessary, depending on the local water hardness, the most economical use of the detergent employed is guaranteed. As is the case with the laundry detergent, we only use ingredients absolutely necessary and acceptable for the production of the softener, and abstain completely from using fillers, phosphates, and other petrochemical softening substances such as phosphonates, NTA (nitrilotriacetates) and EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid).

Causes serious eye irritation. If medical advice is needed, have product container or label at hand. Keep out of reach of children. Wear eye protection. If in eyes:
Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing.
Biodegradability: Zeolite A is a water-insoluble mineral, similar to sand, which is deposited in sewage sludge as a solid. Sodium carbonate, being a mineral by nature, needs no further degradation. Citric acid, an organic substance, is completely degraded into carbon dioxide and water within 2 to 3 days.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.
