All fabric softeners will thicken and even separate over time. Because SA8 Fabric Softener is concentrated and is made with a biodegradable active ingredient, the product can change over time and become more viscous or thick. Unfortunately, heat can accelerate this process, so product sold in markets that experience higher temperatures may thicken faster. For this reason we have a two-year shelf-life for the product.
Yes. Even if SA8 Fabric Softener becomes thick, it will still provide excellent softening performance. Measure out the recommended amount of SA8 Fabric Softener and add to approximately 100ml of very warm water. Then, vigorously mix. Once the SA8 Fabric Softener is well dispersed in the warm water, use as you normally would.
A: SA8 Fabric Softener is manufactured using the best technology available today to create a planet-friendly, biodegradable, highly-concentrated fabric softener. AMWAY Product Development is working with global supply partners to address this gelling challenge. And, they are pursuing several exciting technologies that will add new features and benefits to this product in the future.
This helps reduce product replenishment lead times and to cut down on the carbon emissions of finished goods transportation as much as 70% - a point which is in line with AMWAY’s long-standing commitment to a safe and more environmentally sensitive product.
The amount of greenhouse gasses produced in our day-to-day lives through burning fossil fuels such as gas, coal or oil for electricity, heating and transportation will produce carbon dioxide. The effect of all this extra carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere that causes an increase in the surface temperature of our planet (global warming).
No, this will not impact the formulations or packaging of the products. All products will go through the same level of commitment on sourcing and the same level of quality and production principles used in ADA. The only noticeable change is the change in address on the products’ labels.
Certain products such as SA8 PreWash Spray Soil and Stain Remover, DISH DROPS Scrub Buds and GREEN MEADOWS Air Freshener do not carry the BIOQUEST logo because GREEN MEADOWS and SA8 PreWash Spray are tested as "ultimately biodegradable" (it does degrade eventually but not fast enough to meet the strict "readily biodegradable" definition). DISH DROPS Scrub buds are steel and therefore are not biodegradable.
It means the product contains ingredients with more positive health and environmental characteristics than conventional cleaners that are safer for people and the planet, and uphold the high standards of environmental responsibility set forth.
The above products are still available for sale but not branded under AMWAY HOME as their existing formulations do not yet meet the BIOQUEST Formula and Safer Choice criteria. However, there are ongoing R&D efforts to review the formulation.
AMWAY’s concern for the environment began over 50 years ago. Our products use up to 18 times less packaging than competitors and the high concentration means that less waste is released back into the environment.
