European Surfactants Initiative

The Frosch brand relies on domestically produced vege- table oils such as rapeseed, linseed and sunflower oils. It is very important to us to use only oil or oil quality suitable for industrial purposes in order to avoid any competition with oils for nutritional purposes. Still more: By using different domestic oil-producing plants, we encourage variety and sustainability in otherwise unbalanced crop rotation practices and simultaneously promote biodiversity. Surfactants Made From European Plants – A Research Project of the Brand with Pioneer Qualities. Many advantages come with the use of surfactants made from plants cultivated in Europe: • Avoidance of tropical cultivation areas and the related risks, such as the destruction of rain forests or competi- tion with food production • No monocultures • Short transport routes • Use of rapidly renewable raw materials based on European plant oils • Promotion of traditionally cultivated plants • Preservation and promotion of biodiversity
