Biox Liquid is a Biological enzyme product, the enzymic value produces a chemical type acidic value of ph 2.2 as stated in our Data sheets and is not harmful. This is owed to its 10 year research in development in the field of Bio chemistry to produce a safe, non-toxic, non-flammable product.
The colour of Biox 02 has changed or is lighter in colour :
The Biox 02 Liquid uses a high grade food dye within the formulation, this is used only to help distinguish and identify the product. It is however know to fade in light and is photosensitive. However, the performance of Biox 02 is NOT affected by this and is fully functional.
Newer stock (by a month) will fade to a much lighter colour within a few weeks if exposed to light, it is an unfortunate effect of the mixing process, formulation and the reaction to light.
