Woca Woodcare Products Are VOC Free 2016-11-27T13:59:54+00:00

What do we mean when we say that WOCA products are VOC free?

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 VOC free 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 safest to use.  Why would you want to use anything else and risk your family?

  • WOCA products are the safest in their field.
  • VOC free means no chemicals to inhale.
  • WOCA Oils – Safe for life.
  • WOCA Products are VOC free.
