Product InnovationsToday, Agaia, Inc. introduced Evolve®, the first commercially viable, all natural cleaning technology that significantly outperforms chemical cleaning products in consumer, commercial and industrial markets.

Agaia’s ground-breaking, patent-pending technology is the first all-natural cleaning technology to perform at a level of efficacy previously achieved only through the use of toxic, petroleum-based cleaners, detergents, degreasers and solvents. In many cases, Evolve actually outperforms chemical cleaners by attaining results not previously possible from chemical-based products

Evolve’s Active-Capture® technology proactively captures and breaks down or emulsifies, soils, odor causing bacteria, grease, grime and virtually all other unwanted contaminates at the molecular level in seconds, leaving no dangerous residues behind on the surfaces cleaned or in the environment.

“Evolve represents one of the most significant advances in cleaning in the last 100 years,” said Agaia, Inc. CEO Benjamin Shell.  “Our consumer, commercial and industrial strength products can be used to clean everything from consumer households to commercial office buildings, retail stores, hotels, hospitals, airports, and factories. More importantly, in the vast majority of cases, Evolve provides an increased level of clean that far outperforms results people are used to seeing from chemical cleaners. Evolve delivers these results without contaminating our air, water, or land and with zero health risks to people. Evolve is literally people, planet, and animal safe.”

Evolve® is manufactured exclusively from plants, vegetables, and other all-natural ingredients grown in the USA, to create a truly eco-friendly cleaning technology small enough to penetrate and emulsify unwanted organic and petroleum-based by-products quickly and easily while leaving sensitive surfaces like wood, fabric, and stone undamaged. Unlike chemical degreasers, detergents, and cleaners that use traditional chemistry to remove soils, Evolve utilizes the same hydrogen-bonding used by living organisms for respiration and reproduction to affect a powerful attraction to unwanted materials at the molecular level. When applied, Evolve seeks out, surrounds, and captures contaminant molecules, locking unwanted materials into a readily biodegradable suspension, where nature takes over and naturally degrades everything. Once removed, contaminants are unable to recombine or redeposit on surfaces from which they have been removed.

The patent application for Evolve has been allowed by the US Patent and Trademark Office, and is expected to publish shortly.

In the U.S. alone, studies have shown the extreme impact chemical cleaners have on human health and the environment:

  • Inside air quality of the typical U.S home is on average 2-5 times more polluted than the air just outside—and in extreme cases 100 times more contaminated—largely because of household cleaners and pesticides (EPA)
  • A nationwide study by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in May 2002 showed that nearly 70% of the streams tested contained breakdown products of detergents, while 66% contained disinfectants.
  • Cleaning products are the third largest category of substances reported by calls to poison control centers, with over 218,000 calls made in 2005 alone.
  • The American Journal of Industrial Medicine reported in 2001 that janitorial workers have twice the rate of occupational asthma than other workers.
  • A study on cleaning products and asthma in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in May 2003 concluded that about twelve percent of work-related asthma can be linked to cleaning product exposure.

Unlike chemical cleaners, Evolve is hypoallergenic and is safe for everyone, including people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.

“Not only are consumers, businesses, and industry looking for safer ways to clean, but consumer demand for environmentally responsible alternatives is growing rapidly. Study after study clearly shows that chemical cleaners are directly impacting our food supply, our personal health, and our workplace safety.  Evolve® is the first step towards achieving a chemical-free alternative on a very large scale,” said Shell. 

As a high performance, cost-competitive, and safe alternative to chemical cleaners, Agaia anticipates Evolve’s disruptive technology will have a direct impact on the $100 billion cleaning industry and how those companies manufacture cleaning and detergent products. Today, Agaia offers nearly one hundred Evolve products for the consumer, janitorial and housekeeping, commercial laundry, and marine markets, as well as heavy-duty cleaners for industry and manufacturing. Agaia is also partnering with some of the largest companies in North America and internationally to solve their cleaning problems and lessen their environmental impact. Through private branding, the company anticipates the introduction by Spring, 2014 of a new line of retail products for consumers based upon the Evolve technology.

"We were very intentional in naming this new technology Evolve, because it is time that we evolve how we clean the planet. It is no longer necessary to rely upon harsh, poisonous chemicals to clean the world in which we work and live in. Consumers and companies alike are beginning to demand safe, renewable cleaning products -- simply put, Evolve is that technology, "added Shell.
