Woca Wood Care Low VOC Products
Plant Based Low VOC Oils
What do we mean when we say that WOCA products are low in VOCs?
First let’s look into what a Volatile Organic Compound is. A VOC is a chemical that under ordinary room-temperature conditions will evaporate very easily into the surrounding air. Although the chemical is “organic” it is still harmful. Symptoms from VOC are slow to develop mainly because the chemical is inhaled over a long period of time. VOCs occur naturally in the environment but in very small amounts. It is a primary way of communication between plants. Using a WOCA product that is low in VOCs means that you can apply the oils to your floor and inside your house without the long-term effects of inhaling and risking your health. WOCA products are plant based and safe to use.
- WOCA products are the safest in their field.

WOCA Oils are low in Volatile Organic Compounds.
