Green Oil Ecogrease Clean Chain Green Clean

Please select any of the product images above for more information on that product.

Environmental

Technical Information

Green Oil products are the greenest chain lubes and bike cleaners around.

100% petrochemical free

Green Oil products are created from naturally occurring oils and plant extracts to provide you with the same qualities you would expect from a quality bike maintenance kit.

Biodegradable

Although, Green Oil chain lube remains on the chain longer than most oils, when Green Oil does eventually come off the chain, it will over time biodegrade. The whole Green Oil range is totally biodegradable after its life on your bike.

Not irritant, not harmful, nor 'dangerous for the environment'

Not harmful

Look on most chain lube bottles and you will be horrified to see that not only are they harmful or irritant, but that they explicitly say 'dangerous for the environment' on the back.

The Green Oil range of products are not harmful, not irritant, and not 'dangerous for the environment'. So the Green Oil range will not harm you, aquatic life or small animals

Not tested on animals

Green Oil products have not been tested on animals (unless you call the various mountain and road cyclists who first tested it 'animals').

All Green Oil products use only ingredients that occur naturally and are safe. None of the ingredients, nor the finished product have been animal tested. Green Oil products contains no animal products or by-products, and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Recyclable, and Re-usable

Recycling number 2

Reduce, re-use, recycle the saying goes. Green Oil's bottle can not only be recycled with your plastic milk bottles, but can also be re-used.

Green Oil's bottle has the recycling code is 2.  The cap is unfortunately made of polypropylene. This is plastic type 5 and not usual recyclable.

Green Oil bottles are made out of HDPE, or 'High Density Polyethylene', with the recycling code 2 shown above.

All Green Oil bottles have a recycled paper label. This can be removed, and recycled again, possibly into a new Green Oil label!

CFC Free

Green Oil products are all CFC free, but CFCs were pretty much banned in 1993 under the Montreal Protocol. 'CFC free' is meaningless marketing today.

100% palm oil free

Green Oil's ingredients are a trade secret, they are sustainably sourced and half the ingredients are organic. However, bio-fuels, vegetable oil, and even shampoo often contain 'palm oil'.

Palm oil is a useful fuel to keep car culture going, a cheap cooking substance to keep up the old obesity rates, and useful to 'bulk up' supermarket items, like cheap peanut butter and shampoo.

The problem with this? Palm oil relies on vast swathes of rainforest being cleared. Great, bio-diverse areas are destroyed and replaced by vast palm oil plantations. They even burn rainforest and peat bogs in order to grow palm oil, outweighing any carbon neutrality of using the end product.

This is at the expense of the environment, wildlife (especially orang-utans) and indigenous people.

Green Oil is therefore 100% palm oil free.

Green Oil's award winning lubricant formula contains advanced long-chain molecules to reduce friction.

These polymers also repel water molecules. This inhibits rust and corrosion, prolonging the chain's mechanical life.

Green Oil degreasing and cleaning products are a blend of 100% natural ingredients.

Green Oil bottles are thermoplastic which can be repeatedly softened by heating and hardened again on cooling, this means it can be repeatedly recycled.

How Green Oil products are produced

Green Oil products' formula is a trade secret, a patent application currently being completed.

Green Oil products are manufactured from naturally occurring plant extracts, a blend of which produces a high performance lubricant or extremely effective degreaser or cleaner. Green Oil products contains no animal derivatives.

Green Oil chain lube's components are balanced to give a high-performance lubricant that stays on the chain.

Green Oil chain lube protects from rust and gives a smooth, low friction ride.

A chain lube fact

A well oiled chain can make a bicycle more than ninety eight per cent efficient at converting your kinetic energy into moving your bike forward.

Protection from rust and corrosion

Green Oil chain lube protects the bike chain from rust and corrosion, it also repels water for minimum fuss.  

With Clean Chain you can degrease your chain without taking it off your bike using 100% natural and environmentally friendly products.

Anti-wear protection

Green Oil technology promotes chain longevity. Green Oil products offer excellent anti-wear performance. Chains last longer when properly degreased, cleaned and lubricated, saving the world’s resources, and your money.
