For those who love to get their hands dirty, Muck Daddy has been created by renewable products developer Amyris.
Rather than using standard petroleum-based ingredients to tackle tough industrial messes, Muck Daddy cleaners contain a brand-new solvent that tears through the toughest grease and grime, without tearing up your hands, said the company.
Muck Daddy’s formulas – a lotion cleaner with pumice and a textured scrubbing wipe – work as well or better than harsh, smelly hand cleaners, but smell fresh and leave your hands feeling great. They include two key ingredients, both bio-engineered by Amyris from sugarcane, that differentiate them from anything else on the market:
• Myralene 10 quickly and safely dissolves grease, oil, grime, adhesive, ink, scuffs – all kinds of muck – from skin and surfaces.
• Squalane, a high-end skincare ingredient, keeps hands hydrated, conditioned, feeling smooth and less cracked…so it’s easy to make a clean break from dirty work.
According to the company, petroleum-based solvents can be as nasty as the stuff you’re cleaning off, and limonene (all those “orange” cleaners) are being phased out due to increasingly strict environmental regulations.
