Diatomaceous Earth, an amazing natural product!
What is Diatomaceous Earth?
If the name we give it seems to attest to a terrestrial origin, this material is actually from aquatic environments.
Diatoms are micro-algae whose fossilized skeletons form a sedimentary rock called diatomite.
Grinding this unique rock produces the famous diatomaceous earth
Why is it so special?
Its structure is without natural or synthetic equivalent
The unique structure of the frustules - shells made of silica surrounding the diatoms - gives diatomaceous earth a very effective mechanical action against insects.
Lethal for the latter, which it injures and dehydrates, it is however inoffensive for the Man and the animals
It has a formidable effectiveness for a low impact on the environment
Unlike many insecticides, it does not represent any danger for the environment
On the contrary, its use is very profitable in agriculture
Capable of absorbing more than 150% of its weight in water and nutrients, which it then gradually redistributes, it is recommended for soil improvement
