Clean Air Day 2018

It's clean air day, so at Delphis Eco we're talking VOCs. 

But what actually is a VOC? 

VOCs stand for Volatile Organic Compounds. They are emitted when using cleaning products, cosmetics, solvents, paints and varnishes. It is medically proven that these gases when inhaled regularly can have irreparable damage on our lungs. 

In a study published by Bergen University, they found that "people who have worked as cleaners or done household cleaning for 20 years have reduced lung function equivalent to smoking 20 cigarettes a day for the same period of time" [PHD candidate, Dept Clinical Science, University of Bergen]. 

 

 

It's a scary fact. That's why the Delphis Eco range of products are certified as "Ultra Low" VOC levels, "Low" levels or "Zero".

Less impact on you, and less impact on the environment.
