Vital Oxide is now available in bags on valve cans. We are very excited about the new bags on valve cans (BoV). Yes, it may seem strange for people to jump up and down with excitement over a spray can design, but after I explain the advantage of the BoV can compared to its predecessors you will understand our excitement.
Until recently, manufacturers relied on aerosol cans and manual pumps to transport their products like hair spray, disinfectant cleaners, and paint into consumers’ homes. The aerosol can design requires a gas or liquid propellant to be added to the product formula. The propellant acts as a driving force to thrust the product out of the can once the valve is opened. Whereas, the manual pump design uses no propellant but requires manual labor to push the product out and is not able to spray at an angle.
In the earlier days manufacturers used gas propellants called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that left a heavy carbon footprint on our environment. The Montreal Protocol of 1989 banned these aerosol propellants from most products to protect our ozone layer, at which time other gases such as propane, n-butane, and isobutene were introduced as propellants.
