Experience the Power of Nature with Our Eco-Friendly Products

Yachts require daily maintenance. which needs everyday chemicals. Unfortunately they are designed so the water used to clean the deck is spilt overboard together with the dissolved chemicals. As a result. all yacht chemicals end up in the water and contaminate it, negatively impacting aquatic life.

In the face of this challenge, the International Sailing Schools Association, the scientific community, and Chitone developed globally unique products ensuring a new, superior, and previously unavailable level of safety for the natural environment for use on yachts.
The dedicated dishwashing liquid and body gel are safe for all waters. The ISSA ECO products are made exclusively from biodegradable ingredients of natural origin and based on ChitoVelum® - a 100% natural product made of chitosan hydrogel. Outside of the ecological aspects resulting from the unique attributes of chitosan. the ChitoVelum® formula has a positive effect on human skin. which is an obvious added value.

ISSA ECO products are effective and contain only a few ingredients. Simple composition minimises the potential number of interactions with the natural environment. It makes the product safe for all users, including children and people suffering from allergies and irritations. ISSA ECO products do not contain any ingredients perceived negatively by consumers. which means that they fulfil the requirements of the following strategies:
