Arcyvert - natural enzyme maintenance products
35 years of know-how, a pioneer in ecological maintenance
Arcyvert is the story of a family commitment, a pioneer in natural maintenance.
Founder Daniel Mauban began in 1979 to design cleaning products, first for septic tanks and then for sanitary facilities, based on active principles that respect the environment. Precursor of an ecological offer on cleaning products, ARCYVERT is created. This is the start of the "septic tanks - pipes" range, the formulations of which remain unchanged to this day.
The range was then extended to household cleaning products, with the birth of organic store networks in France. Working hand in hand with the organic circuit, the company has continued to grow by developing new products closer to consumer needs, while remaining on a human scale.
Today the torch has passed to the next generation: Thierry Mauban thus perpetuates the values of the family company and social commitment, in particular with the Specialized Establishment for Work Assistance (ESAT), Les Ateliers de L'Espoir in Rennes, for packaging.
Arcyvert, a very simple idea...
A house is first and foremost a living space. It must be maintained without intoxicating it with pollutants, while preserving the health of the family and Nature. Kitchen, bathroom, toilets: Arcyvert eco-products are the result of research that favors efficiency, respect for the environment and the health of users. THIS IS THE STORY OF A FAMILY COMMITMENT, PIONEER OF THE ENZYME IN NATURAL MAINTENANCE.
But by the way, what is an enzyme ?
Enzymes are natural proteins present in living beings and the environment. They control the biological and biochemical processes essential to life. They participate in the proper functioning of cellular metabolism and therefore of life : they are essential for digestion, muscle contraction, breathing...
Enzymes are our allies: they are natural active ingredients that maintain the biological balance of the house while being ultra-effective cleaning agents at low temperatures and in small quantities against grease and organic waste.
Enzymes are essential in the offer of ecological and biological cleaning products for 2 main reasons:
1 - Enzymes are biodegradable
2 - They are not toxic: their intervention is both active in breaking down dirt and neutral because there is no harmful impact on the environment.
What are the benefits of enzymes ?
Enzymes have 4 properties that make them essential players in the ecosystem for life.
1 - A catalytic property : An enzyme accelerates a chemical reaction and is found intact at the end of the reaction. We talk about biocatalyst to recall the fact that an enzyme is made by a living organism.
2 - Action at low concentration : A very small quantity of enzyme in the medium is enough to catalyze the reaction.
3 - A very fast action : An enzymatic reaction lasts a thousandth of a second. One of the most effective enzymes known to date in Nature, involved in the synthesis of the basic elements of DNA and RNA, makes it possible to accelerate this reaction which takes place in 18 milliseconds rather than in 78 millions of years!
4 - A natural action : An action under the conditions of life on earth (temperature, pressure, acidity, etc.), thus limiting the need for additional energy for the reaction to occur.
What are enzymes used for in cleaning products ?
Enzymes are great for speeding up the effectiveness of ingredients – this is called catalysis. They provide faster, more thorough, residue-free cleaning and, in the case of machine laundry, they clean effectively at low temperatures.
For what function are cleaning products used ?
In cleaning products, enzymes can intervene for all types of dirt. There is generally for each molecule concerned, an enzyme which is adapted. Examples, the enzymes which accelerate the destruction of fat stains (lipids) are lipases, the enzymes which accelerate the destruction of blood stains (proteins) are proteases. Enzymes break stains and dirt into water-soluble microparticles.
An exclusive combination: efficiency + naturalness
Derived from organic processes with exclusive formulations developed over the years in the laboratory, Arcyvert products are built on active ingredients combining efficiency and respect for the environment. The products ensure the health and safety of users. The enzymes used are pure and natural, non-GMO, and all formulas are laboratory tested. Product packaging is 100% recyclable.
In terms of environmental certification, they chose ECOCERT, whose specifications are both demanding and objective.
The One Voice label guarantees the absence of tests on animals, products or ingredients resulting in or having required the death of an animal.
Natural enzymes for an ecological, healthy and efficient home maintenance
Enzymes have long been used in laundry detergents, where they have proven to be very effective. What is new is their use in household cleaning products. Through biomimicry, it has indeed been possible to transpose the role and natural functioning of these microorganisms into our everyday life.
Today, we can clearly speak of a revolution in the world of maintenance. It was necessary to innovate to formulate products based on natural enzymes without affecting their potential, their interest and all their effectiveness.
Why are these products so new ? First of all, they act in a completely different way. Conventional chemicals will act through a corrosive effect. By simply picking up the dirt in order to drag it into the rinsing water. More cleverly, enzymes break down dirt by digesting and breaking it down. Cellulases will, for example, destroy the fibers of paper, and lipases will solubilize fats.
They are neither corrosive nor irritating, unlike synthetic chemical compounds. They are also biodegradable and have no toxic effect for the user, fauna and flora.
The field of application of these enzymes is vast and covers all the needs of the house. Their effectiveness continues to be proven in maintenance products for pipes, sanitation equipment, septic tanks, sanitary facilities or WCs. Composed with other natural active ingredients such as organic acids, they are also found in cleaning products for kitchen and bathroom surfaces, with remarkable descaling, disinfecting and degreasing properties.
These enzymes also play an important role in the current health context which requires the daily use of powerful chemical detergents and disinfectants. Although necessary and indispensable, these products contribute in spite of themselves to increasing our exposure to chemical agents. Enzymatic household products thus make it possible to reduce this chemical pressure in our surroundings and our living spaces.
Their effectiveness and their ecological relevance ultimately go well beyond the cleaning activity they allow, making these everyday products true partners that respect people and their environment.
A range for septic tanks
A complete range specially designed for all installations, traditional septic tanks, all-water pits, cesspools, grease traps and phyto-purification equipment allowing maintenance, start-up, restarting, unclogging and the fight against bad smells.
