Does The Carbon Get Released Again When I Use The Soap
Nope! The carbon we capture is converted into a common and 100% safe chemical found in most soaps, called Potassium Carbonate (Pearl Ash). Because of this, the CO2 is sequestered during extraction and will never be released into the atmosphere.
How Much CO2 Does a CarbinX™ Unit Sequester Per Year?
1 CarbinX™ Unit Captures About 6-8 Tonnes of CO2 Per Year Which Is Equal to About 300 Trees.
What Is Cold Processed Soap
Cold process soap is made by combining oils and sodium hydroxide lye, which causes a chemical reaction called saponification. The process allows for more customization in the formulation process. We choose the best oils, scents, and ingredients to ensure our bars perform well and smell exceptional.
What are the Benefits of Potassium Carbonate
The potassium carbonate adds a softness / silkiness to the lather, which creates a nicer user experience.
Do Your Soaps Use Palm Oil
We have decided using palm oil would not align with our company values for sustainability and therefore have committed to not using it in any of our products.
Are Your Soaps SLS and Paraben Free?
Yes they are! All of our products are SLS and Paraben free.
Does the CarbinX carbon-capture process produce more CO2 than it captures?
The CarbinX unit and its carbon-capture process sequester more carbon dioxide than is produced by their operation. The CarbinX is UL STD 462 certified as a heat reclaimer. This heat recovery more than offsets the energy needs (and carbon production) of CarbinX.
Are CleanO2 products natural?
We consider an ingredient natural if it is the product of a living plant and is simply purified or minimally processed (e.g., botanical oils and essential oils) or extracted from the earth (e.g., clay or pumice). (We make an exception for pearl ash, which is derived from captured carbon dioxide in a zero-waste process.) And aside from the natural minerals, everything must be readily biodegradable. All that said, our soaps are not fully natural — but we’re close. Some of our soaps contain parfum, synthetic scents for which we haven’t yet found a natural “essential oil” replacement. Currently, three of our bars contain parfum. So we’re not perfect, but we’re proudly making progress.
