Soap made from vegetable oils has one outstanding feature compared to all the other active washing substances, namely that, right after its use, it reacts chemically with the limescale always present in wastewater, resulting in calcium soap, thus neutralising its surfactant effect on aquatic organisms (primary degradation). The calcium soap is then, by microorganisms, 100% degraded into carbon dioxide and water (secondary degradation). Despite the fact that during the manufacturing of sugar surfactants, coconut oil alcohol sulphate and sulphated castor oil, constituents are being extracted from the plant-based raw materials starch, sugar, and fat, they remain completely intact in their natural molecular structure. For this reason, it is relatively easy for the microorganisms to 100% decompose these surfactants. Citric acids and their salts are an integral part of the plant, animal and human organisms and are, therefore, rapidly and completely degraded into carbon dioxide and water by microorganisms present in nature. Soap, sugar surfactant, citric acid, coconut oil alcohol sulphate, and sulphated castor oil are classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.
