OCP&E® People Pleasers™ Citrus Mint is a delightfully cool and refreshing blend of cold pressed orange oil, lemon oil terpenes, peppermint oil terpenes, Mentha arvensis, cinnamon leaf oil, clove leaf oil, citral, cinnamal, and other essential oils and phytochemicals. This popular, signature scent provides effective odor neutralization without the use of masking agents, synthetic fragrances, or perfumey cover-ups. This neutralizer is ideal for use in wastewater treatment facilities, poultry operations, food processors, dairies, composting operations, institutions, etc.
This proven-effective chemical contains an ecologically sound surfactant, Ordenone® inclusion clathrate encapsulator, zinc ricinoleate, an additional trade secret encapsulator which lowers the vapor pressure on malodors, a blend of several essential oils and essential oil derivatives, phytochemicals, and biologicals designed to reduce organic odors.
Ordenone® is an odorless inclusion clathrate compound which acts as a chemical lattice to entrap sulfides, amines, mercaptans, ammonia, indole and skatole compounds, and certain aldehydes. The following chart illustrates an independent laboratory test of ammonia removal at 77.5% achieved with 3% Ordenone® in water.
Zinc Ricinoleate is a zinc salt of ricinoleic acid. Zinc oxide comprises the zinc source, while ricinoleic acid is a purified fatty acid from castor seed oil extracted from the Ricinus communis plant. Zinc ricinoleate does not contain ricin. Zinc salts of ricinoleic acid are effective at controlling a broad spectrum of odors. Because of its safety profile and effectiveness, zinc ricinoleate is widely used in personal care products such as commercial deodorants, anti-perspirants, laundry detergents, etc.
Biological Odor Control: The Bacillus spore blend targets a wide range of malodorous organic compounds including ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, volatile fatty acids, and mercaptans. The biological component also degrades proteins, starches, cellulose, fats, oils, and greases. The application specific bacteria produce extracellular enzymes that degrade organic matter, such as proteins. The degradation by-products are metabolized by the bacteria cells and utilized for growth. Thus, the slow break-down of these materials, which would otherwise result in the formation of numerous malodorous compounds, can not occur, and the odors are prevented at point source.
Citrus Mint is available in an economical Ready-To-Use (RTU) as well as the Standard Formula.
