Raw materials

Raw materials for our products – local wherever possible

We believe it is best if we use quickly renewable resources in our products. We are really happy if they grow nearby, i.e. in our region, removing the need to transport them over long distances.

These are important raw materials in our products:

Rapeseed oil

Rapeseed

Rapeseed grows “right on our doorstep”, regrows quickly and provides some of the ingredients for our ecofriendly Pyrol. The oil is obtained from the seeds of the rapeseed plant. 

Natural pyrethrum

This raw material comes from the flowers of a certain type of chrysanthemum (Chrysanthemum cinerariifolium). It does regrow quickly, but unfortunately not nearby, as it mainly comes from Africa, especially Tanzania, Kenya and Rwanda, and from Tasmania, south of Australia. It is the main ingredient in our Pyrol Bug & Larvae Killer. Natural pyrethrum breaks down very quickly when exposed to light and oxygen, which means the waiting period before harvest is very short when using the active ingredient.

Iron(III) phosphate

Both iron and phosphate compounds occur naturally in the soil. We utilise the combination of minerals for use in our Sluggo Slug & Snail Killer*. It breaks down easily in the soil and is harmless to useful animals like hedgehogs, earthworms, bees, but also to dogs, cats and other domestic pets.

*Use plant protection products safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
