FAQ for Micelles
What is Colloidal science?
Today colloid science is the study of systems involving small particles of one substance suspended in another. Suspensions in liquids form the basis of a wide variety of systems of scientific and technological importance, including paints, ceramics, cosmetics, agricultural sprays, detergents, soils, biological cells, and many food preparations.
Almost every technique and theoretical procedure of modern physics and chemistry has been and is being applied to the study of colloids so that even the specialist colloid chemist finds it difficult to remain au fait with the many ramifications of the subject.
The emergence of a variety of organic products, embodying the latest advances in nanotechnology and developed through the use of colloidal chemistry, is one of this century’s most promising advances in environmental science. The heart of this new chemistry is the technology used to create a “colloidal micelle.” This micelle is about the size of 10 hydrogen atoms, or one nanometer. Sub-microscopic particles are created in a microscopic field similar to a magnetic field.

What are colloidal micelles?
Micelles are sub-microscopic, electrically charged particles that, when activated in water, repel each other in a ceaseless random movement. Micelles in liquid solution are 50 to one hundred times smaller than the particles created from typical cleaners and detergents. This small size and their extreme surface-area-to-volume ratio enable the micelles to penetrate complex carbon molecules, and emulsify organic matter holding it in suspension ready to be rinsed away.

It is a technology that comes from a type of advanced materials science known as colloidal chemistry. Food grade ingredients are processed to form nano-sized particles called micelles. The micelle’s small particle size can be 1-4 nanometers, combined with its extremely high surface area to volume ratio, enables it to penetrate carbon molecules and emulsify organic matter. Micelles are activated when mixed with sufficient amount of water such that each micelle is then completely surrounded by a thin layer of water molecules. The outer hydrophilic shell aggressively searches for and bonds with water molecules, making them hyper-mobile.

Why are collioidial micelles important?
They are non toxic, environmentally safe, biodegradable and more effective than hazardous chemicals. Non-toxic and sustainable products are preferred by both industrial customers and end consumers. Toxicity is becoming increasingly important and health and safety concerns have mainstreamed.

How are they better than other cleaning products?

These micelles, which possess the power and capability to break down organic molecules and hydrocarbons, are the workhorses behind nano/colloidal technology’s effectiveness as a cleaning, degreasing, emulsifying and encapsulating agent.

Most importantly, the colloidal micelles work together to produce an extremely powerful, effective, and affordable solution that requires no OSHA labeling or special handling and safety training and does not pollute our environment or waterways.

The limitation has been in restricting or eliminating toxic ingredients but still getting the job done effectively and economically. Micelles have a number of unique advantages over ordinary formulations. Other cleaning products contain just surfactants and emulsifiers which can do a good job of lifting fats-oils-greases (FOG), but leave hazardous hydrocarbons intact to run off and continue to contaminate our environment and water sources. Colloidial micelles operate differently from normal cleaners and the quick degradation of organic waste causes a significant reduction of offensive odor caused by the normally slow process of decay. This level of reduced organic residue will cause a subsequent reduction in population of disease carrying insects. Because of the environmental safety advantages and the cleaning effect and lower cost, Colloidal micelle technology will be the wave of the future for cleaning products and within a few years it will be hard to find one made any other way.

Are there any anti-bacterial qualities with micelles?
FDA regulations require that any product labeled as an “antibacterial” must, by law, contain a registered pesticide, which is a toxic chemical. However Collodial micelle products are just as effective as most commercially available antibacterials (killing such bacteria as E.Coli and Salmonella) …and are perfectly safe!

What are the ingredients?
A proprietary colloidal solution comprised of plant-based, non-ionic surfactants that create, through a special blending process but listed on the msds on the Food and Drug Administration’s GRAS (“Generally Recognized as Safe”) List, and because they are totally nontoxic, no warning label of any kind is required by any Federal, State or Municipal agency.
