Effetto Mariposa has introduced a new range of cleaning and maintenance products that are safe for environment, relying on oil from sunflower seeds to formulate its chain lube, along with pine oil for its degreaser and a biodegradable cleaner.
Effetto Mariposa earned praise for launching the first plant-based tire sealant last year. Now, the Swiss company’s latest range of environmentally friendly products include the Flowerpower Wax chain lube, which features a sunflower seed wax content that eliminates harmful fluorinated compounds (PFAS), as well as graphene and sulphides, while still maintaining a 50% wax-to-water ratio as compared to other brands that only have 30%. Moreover, Effetto Mariposa claims by using sunflower wax there’s a stronger adhesion to metal and more water resistance for better performance in wet conditions.
The Flowerpower Wax is claimed to allow almost 190 miles (300 kilometers) of road riding on a single application, although Effetto Mariposa says off-road riders may need more frequent use.
Flowerpower Wax is available in 100 ml bottles for €11,99.
The next product is the Allpine Extra chain degreaser, which as previously mentioned relies on pine oil to create a natural solvent that’s both biodegradable and won’t harm chrome, painted components or carbon. According to Effetto Mariposa, the Allpine Extra can also be used to safely clean brake rotors as well.
Allpine Extra is available in 500 ml bottles for €15,99.
Lastly, there’s the pine-scented Allpine Light biodegradable cleaner, which doesn’t require rinsing, making it ideal for eBikes by limiting their exposure to water in critical areas.
Allpine Light is available in a 1000 ml spray bottle for €13,99, or as a refill for €9,99.
