Maize cob used in hand cleaner
LIQUI MOLY has launched a new more environmentally friendly hand cleaner.
The new formula uses maize cob meal which has been developed to be mild, skin-neutral and effective, able to remove heavy soiling.
Maize cob meal offers benefits as compared to walnut shells, which are a commonly used biological abrasive, explained LIQUI MOLY’s head of development, David Kaiser.
“The shells can be sharp-edged when used as an abrasive, so they are less gentle on the skin as compared to meal,” he said.
“Walnut shells have to undergo an elaborate chemical procedure in order to reduce the fat content of the product and increase its pH value. This is done by means of bleaching using hydrogen peroxide and soaking in alkaline solution, so the maize cob meal is definitely the preferable ecological option.”
In addition, he said, since the meal comes solely from threshed maize cobs, there is no wastage of animal feed or nutritional resources.
