Low hazard to health. Plant derived, biodegradable and suitable for greywater and septic tanks.

Using hydrogen gas and high pressure, plant oils can undergo a hydrogenation process whereby they change from a liquid into a solid or semi-solid state - becoming hydrogenated oils. The hydrogenation process allows oils to remain solid at room temperature - an everyday example of which is margarine. Hydrogenated olive oil is known to be a rich source of antioxidants and is used in many skin care products as a skin conditioning ingredient.
