Bellucci Premium responds to an article that shares how olive pits are now being used in cleaning solutions, and how they have proven to be a highly effective ingredient that is both rough and safe.

According to an article published on September 10th by The Olive Oil Times titled “P&G Patent Application Employs Olive Pits in Liquid Cleaners,” liquid cleaners that contain olive pits can effectively be used on glass, Teflon, ceramic, and even stainless steel.

The company that started the patent application says in the article that the choice in cleaning products is usually based on cleaning performance, not necessarily what kind of surface damage a product can cause. Unfortunately, many products that excel in surface safety are often inadequate when it comes to cleaning. These products include natural ingredients like apricot pits and walnut shells.

Grinding pits of olives and using them in cleaning products has proved to be a successful mixture, says the article. Olive pits are “hard enough to provide the cleaning effect, however, soft enough to provide good surface safety profile.” Olive pits have some other great qualities; they are light in color if harvested at the right time and are biodegradable.

“It’s great to see that all parts of the olive can be used,” says Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Italian olive oil producer Bellucci Premium. “There are so many beneficial uses for olives and olive oil. I am not surprised to see that it possesses the qualities to be an ingredient in efficient liquid cleaners. The olive is truly a super fruit.”

Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
