About Our Ingredients:
Seven simple ingredients of the highest quality make up Lost Coast Plant Therapy. We only use biodegradable, food grade, and cosmetic grade ingredients.
Below is more about the ingredients and what they do:
LABEL ACTIVE INGREDIENTS:
Soy oil is organic, food grade, and non-GMO. ACTION: Coats insects and suffocates on contact. Bugs cannot build an immunity to suffocation.
Peppermint Essential Oil is organic and food grade. ACTION: Natural bug repellent.
Citric Acid is organic, food grade. ACTION: Adjusts pH of plant surface. Preservative. This ingredient makes the pH of the plant inhospitable for powdery mildew and kills spores on contact due to its anti-fungal properties.
LABEL INERT INGREDIENTS:
Soap is a proprietary blend, is certified to use in organic products, and from a sustainable plant source. Lowers the surface tension of water/liquid, which helps it spread across the surface of anything it is applied to. An emulsifier (helps all the other ingredients to stay mixed together.) It also penetrates the insects body covering and disrupts the cell membrane. Cell contents leak out causing the target pests to dehydrate and die.
Alcohol is cosmetic grade (safe for skin). Isopropyl alcohol dehydrates insects rapidly and helps evaporate diluted product from plants safely without leaving residue or burning.
