  • How can we prove the Detox Bag™ Works?
    There are as many as 600 types of approved pesticides identified in fruit and vegetables. However there are even more unaccountable and unauthorized mix of pesticides identified used and manufactured by farmers during the farming and growing of fruit and vegetables, that are a major concern to our health.

    The structure of pesticide is very complex and very difficult to decompose, hence the pesticides residue in fruits and vegetable not been tangible and difficult to identify with the naked eye. In fact, some pesticide is either powerful acidic or alkaline base.

    Therefore our numerous inspection reports and intense testing accredited by SGS an approved world wide testing laboratory is what we stand by as the proof required that the Detox Bag™ works.

    Nevertheless if you would like to do further testing yourself feel free to direct further testing using spectrometer analysis equipment on pesticide residue before and after treated by the Detox Bag™. Another simple test to check the Detox Bag™ is to put one glass of fruit juice (orange or lime) or any alcoholic liquor into the Detox Bag™ for 10 to 15 minutes. Thereafter, the drink will be totally different and will be an enjoyable taste. You will notice the acid from the drink is reduced therefore leaving a soft and smooth taste to the drink.

  • What you need to know about Nanometre?
    Nanometre (nm) -- length of the unit is 10-9 meters. For most cases when particle size is in the range of 1-100 nm, this is claim as nanometre. The use of nanotechnology will greatly change the lives of human beings in the future. Scientists termed them as the world's third industrial revolution. Measurement of less than 10-9 meters is known as sub-nanometre. There is no Nano Technology used in the Detox Bag™.

  • What you need to know about Photocatalyst?
    Generally speaking, Photocatalyst is the substance which can modify the rate of chemical reaction using light irradiation. Chlorophyll of plants is a typical natural Photocatalyst. The difference between chlorophyll Photocatalyst to man-made nanotechnology Photocatalyst (here mentioned as Photocatalyst) is, usually when chlorophyll captures sunlight to turn water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and glucose, but on the contrary Photocatalyst creates a strong oxidation agent and electronic holes to breakdown organic matter to carbon dioxide and water in the presence of Photocatalyst, light and water. Photocatalyst is the bases of how the Detox Bag™ works.

  • What is the Theory behind the Detox Bag™?
    Raw materials used to produce the Detox Bag™ is "sub-nanometre Photocatalyst" and is finer than 10-9 molecular materials. When matter is as small as 1 to 100 nanometres, many of its features will easily change and have many unique features both different from macro-matters and single atoms due to the quanta effect, regional confinement of matter, and huge surface or interface effects. The final objective of nanometre technology is to produce products of special functions with new physical and chemical features by making atoms, molecules and matters presenting their features directly in the length of a nanometre: for example, the strength of ten times of iron could be very light, all information in a library could be stored in a chip the size of a sugar cube, and tumours the sizes of only several cells can be detected.

    Theoretically, when Photocatalyst absorbs radiation from sunlight or illuminated light source (like fluorescent lamps), it will produce pairs of electrons and holes. The electron of the valence band becomes excited when illuminated by light. The excess energy of this excited electron promoted the electron to the conduction band therefore creating the negative-electron (e-) and positive-hole (h+) pair. This stage is referred as the semiconductor's 'photo-excitation' state.

    Simply speaking, the Detox Bag™ absorbs light and produces energy to excite the bag's inner coating elements to build into a specific energy wave frequency, to break the toxic chemical bond residue in fruits and vegetables so as to decompose their toxic elements.

  • What is the Difference between the Detox Bags™, Pesticide Detergent & Ozone for Reducing Pesticide Residue?
    In general, available product in the market that claims able to reduce pesticides residue, typically uses water or ozone properties. These products can only impact on the epidermis or outer skin of fruits and vegetables.

    Pesticides are typically deposited onto fruits and vegetables in the following three groupings:
    1. Dehydrated and dried-up pesticide attaching on the surface
    2. Pesticide penetrating through wax and accumulate between the wax and the surface.
    3. Pesticide absorbed through the roots and scattered into every part of the plant.

    Today, pesticides are generally deposited by above grouping 2 and 3; thereby resulting as pesticide residue remaining within fruits and vegetable. The Detox Bag™ is truly the only available product in today‚Äôs market able to penetrate and decompose pesticide residue remaining within fruits and vegetable.

  • How to use the Detox Bag™? How long it will take to remove the pesticide residue?
    Place fruits and vegetables directly into the Detox bag™. Try to keep them dry. Keep the bag in a place that is exposed to light, preferably under natural light condition is the most effective; however not under direct sun exposure to maintain their freshness. Open the mouth of the plastic bag to allow decomposition to disperse naturally into the air. Recommendation is 3 hours or more to decompose most pesticides residue. Thereafter, put them in the refrigerator to maintain their freshness. Just wash them normally prior to consumption. No soaking with water needed. The better the decomposition effect will be when left longer in the Detox Bag™.

  • What is the life span of the Detox Bag™?
    From the exterior, the Detox Bag™ looks like a normal PP shopping bag -- durable and long lasting. Using transparent plastic bag will avoid abrasion with the special ingredients of Photocatalyst coated inside the bag. This is to prevent excessive wear and tearing off the Photocatalyst coatings. As long as the Photocatalyst coating exist, the pesticide residue decompose effectiveness will not deteriorate. Recommendations usage of the Detox Bag™ is about 12 months to yield the best result.

  • Does the Photocatalyst used in the Detox Bag™ have similar properties as those used in air-con or air-purifier?
    Most Photocatalyst uses silver or titanium oxide with ensuing effect as deodorant, sterilization and bacteria suppression. The Detox Bag™ is composed of 18 unique types of raw materials to not only deliver those ensuing effects but also decompose toxic ingredients of pesticides residue within the pulp of fruits and vegetables.

  • Which kind of light is effective?
    The Detox Bag™ is effective for use under light condition in the day, night, indoor and outdoor. Light Spectrum is divided into visible light and invisible light. Even at night there is invisible light such as ultraviolet and infrared light. Although daylight and outdoor lighting is stronger and can expedite the decomposition effect; care should be taken if the temperature is too high as such condition can destroy fruits and vegetables originality. Do not put the bag direct under sun to ensure fruit and vegetable freshness.

  • Why is Detox Bag™ and excellent value for money product?
    Unlike other detergent and Ozone type product requiring water and electricity, the Detox Bag™ just needs light. Natural light is available free of charge in the open environment. The Detox Bag™ is a PP bag formulated with patents of "sub-nanometre Photocatalyst" technologies so as to enable you to use them every day utilizing the most natural and environmentally-friendly resources; addressing this pesticide residue issue with ease and confidence.
