The active components in the various derivatives
are extracted from two varieties of oranges. The pith and seed
are isolated and pulverised before extracting the natural biocidal
actives with glycerine.
The composition of the resulting product is approx. 50% active
matter and 50% USP glycerine. Under the convention of the USA
Department of Health & Human Services (FDA) the citrus fruit
and extractives are designated as FDA approved under sub section
S182.20. The extractives can be blended with other substances
which are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) to produce materials
which can be used for food and general sanitising applications.
Citrox based derivatives are a mixture of the citrus extractives
blended with the following key additives. Note: All GRAS listed
unless otherwise specified in specific formulations.
The blended derivatives when applied commercially are covered
by our various detailed literature publications (copies available
