Sonett is a trusted name for their utmost care for the environment - there are few manufacturers who can make the claim to being 100% biodegradable like Sonett can.
Highly effective liquid for removing stains and spots caused by fruit, blood, ink, ballpoint pen, grass, and grease, etc.
Suitable for all white and colour-fast textiles made from cotton, linen, hemp and fabric blends. (Before washing coloured textiles, test their colour fastness on a concealed spot.)
Unlike the gall soap bar, Sonett liquid soap may be added to a machine wash cycle. As a wash intensifier: For washing at 30–60 °C (85–140 °F), add 20–30 ml (1 fl oz US) to the main wash cycle of the 4.5 kg (10 lb) washing machine.
For local treatment of stains: Apply undiluted liquid gall soap to the stain and allow taking effect for 10–15 minutes. Wash out thoroughly or place the garment straight into the washing machine.
Bovine gall is a traditional stain remover. Its principal active ingredients, i.e. the bile acids cholic and taurocholic acids, are not only capable of finely dispersing grease and fat-like substances but also of dissolving dyestuffs and forming compounds with them. Soap manufactured from rapeseed / sunflower oil and olive oil with lye (alkaline solution), swells and dissolves the dirt and supports the stain-removing performance property of the bovine gall. Sugar surfactant is obtained from pure plant-based raw materials–sugar, starch and coconut oil– and their chemical reaction with acids. Citric terpene derived from orange peels intensifies even more the fat-dissolving property of Sonett Gall Soap.

Bovine gall being a purely natural product is 100 % biodegradable. Soap made from plant-based oils has the unique property that, right after its use, it reacts chemically with the limescale always present in waste water, thus forming calcium soap. As a result, the surfactant effect inimical to aquatic organisms is being neutralised within a few hours (primary degradation). Subsequently the calcium soap is, by microorganisms, 100 % decomposed into carbon dioxide and water (secondary degradation).
Despite the fact that during the manufacturing of sugar surfactants and coconut oil alcohol sulphate, 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.
Soap and sugar surfactants are classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.
