Coming off the heels of the latest Material Health Certificates from Aqdot, the UK-based supramolecular chemistry company, a product with full Cradle to Cradle Certification™ awarded at the Silver level is now available for consumers and industry alike to rid odors without negative effects for human health or the environment. Oderase® is the first and only fragrance-free odor erasing bathroom spray in the U.K. market and is slated to come to the U.S.
In pursuit of this full certification awarded at the Silver level, MBDC worked closely with the Aqdot team to optimize the Oderase product across Cradle to Cradle Certified™ attributes: Material Health, Material Reutilization, Renewable Energy, Water Stewardship, and Social Fairness. The product excelled in Material Health, achieving Platinum level recognition for its simple and water-based formulation — and use of Aqdot’s patented odor-eliminating technology Aq™Bit, which captures bad odors and erases them from the air.
This ability makes Oderase different from other air fresheners because it is effective at erasing bad odors without the need to mask them with other chemical fragrances. Adding in additional chemical fragrances can at times produce unwanted side effects to human and environmental health.
“Cradle to Cradle Certified is becoming an international “gold standard” science-based quality certification, and creating safe and sustainable products is vitally important to Aqdot. To have Oderase independently Cradle to Cradle Certified is very rewarding,” said Dr. Jing Zhang, co-founder and Marketing Director of Aqdot. “We were supported by MBDC to achieve the Silver level for Oderase, in addition to the Platinum level MHC for AqBit and AqStar M1 and will continue to improve and innovate to ensure that all our products reach the same high ethical standards.”
