BIOCHEMICALS AT WORK
Biochemistry brings together biology and chemistry to create chemical products, naturally. Our probiotic-derived biochemicals use microorganisms to perform the same chemical processes synthetics do. The result is a safer process that not only uses fewer resources, it creates less end waste as well.
A More Sustainable Leather Tanning Process
The leather tanning process is resource-intensive and has traditionally used chemicals to turn raw animal hides and skins into beautiful, finished leather products.
This creates very high amounts of both wastewater and solid residues — especially in the beamhouse, where cured and fresh hides are cleaned and prepared for tanning.
100% NATURAL MEANS SAFER AND LESS WASTEFUL
When you replace traditional chemicals with 100% natural products, you reduce chemical usage, water, and waste compared to traditional processes.
Leather quality can be improved, and with 100% biodegradable products, the process is non-hazardous. Odor levels are also improved.
A More Sustainable Manufacturing Process
Because Proviera® products are derived through fermentation, they not only improve sustainability in the leather tanning process, they are manufactured more sustainably than traditional chemicals as well.
A Natural Bio-Reaction
Fermentation is a natural bio-reaction. As such, it doesn’t require any additional or external sources of energy – meaning it also doesn’t release greenhouse gas emissions.
Non-Toxic and Non-Corrosive
Unlike traditional, synthetic chemicals, biochemicals derived from probiotic fermentation don’t have any potential toxicological effects. They’re also non-corrosive.
Manufactured Using Renewable Resources
Probiotic technology uses raw, natural materials that are both renewable and sustainable. They don’t depend on industries like crude oil.
