Green Oil, Ecogrease
Teflon free, caring for your mechanic!
Ecogrease is for quick release pins, seat posts, pivots, bike building and other grease applications. Grease will get on your hands, so Green Oil Ecogrease doesn't contain Teflon/PTFE or petrochemicals. In fact they've had mechanics call in to say thanks, having suffered dermatitis in the past from the toxic less caring brands out there.
Green Oil had one older gentleman approach them at a trade show asking how we made it so durable - he had used some on his bike shed bolt, which was still there are year later! It uses special plant extracts to make it tenacious, and lubricating.
Ecogrease will biodegrade after its life on the bike - it needs the warmth, moisture and bacteria in the soil to break down back into the environment.
Why use Ecogrease? Grease is for bearings, but mainly parts which don't move much. For example, a quick release pin or thread on a seat post. Pedal threads, pivots and seat post shafts also require grease.
Grease is not really for chains as it can attract dirt when exposed. Unless you have a completely sealed chain chamber perhaps. Ecogrease is best for parts that you move occasionally, or move a little. Ecogrease stops parts seizing up essentially.
How to use Ecogrease The first formula of Ecogrease was a little thinner, but its now thicker and more durable. We therefore recommend taking the whole cap off to squeeze it out.
