Great for bike workshops, large and small.
PTFE accumulates in the enviornment, and people's body tissue.
Mechanics get the stuff on their hands. We've had bicycle mechanics call us who got sick from using lubricants from our toxic competitors.
Things on your skin, expecially oily based products seep in and can cause harm.
To help save people from cancer, dermatitis, and to protect the environment from the PTFE sprayed every day in bike workshops, we created the Green Oil EcoSpray Lube.
What's it for?
Light lubrication, getting rid of water after cleaning your bike.
Suspension forks - if they're old and worn out, and you can't be bothered to get them properly serviced, get some more life from them with EcoSpray Lube.
Hard to reach bits - brake leavers, moving parts on deraileurs, and more!
EcoSpray Lube is skin safe, so if you do get it on your skin, it won't make you ill. It's a natural, plant based formula.
We used to make the CF3 Re-usable lube spray which was was great, but required the cap to be pumped up and down numerous times.
Many people in bike workshops were not prepared to spend time doing this - they prefer the convenience and speed of an aerosol.
Further, the company which made one of the essential parts for it stopped making it. So as the CF3 was phased out, we're phasing EcoSpray Lube in.
How to get it?
Due to the large cost of aerosol production, we've turned to Kickstarter. And it helps spread the word.

How is Green Oil EcoLube Spray green? Other spray lubes out there contain PTFE and petroleum. They don't even bother with proper recycling information! This is crazy, as every fluid used on a bike ends up in the environment, and usually on a mechanic's hands. And your hands, and in your garden. Most street drains lead to rivers too.
- PTFE creates a carcinogen in its production.
- PTFE accumulates in the food chain, after your bike chain.
We don't use PTFE
- Petrochemicals often do harm in the environment and aquatic life
We therefore don't use PTFE or petrochemicals, only natural ingredients.
The fluid content of Green Oil EcoLube Spray is 100% biodegradable.
We don't use palm oil - all our ingredients are sustainably sourced. We use plant based ingredients, natural molecules with similar long chain molecules to those found in petrochemicals. The mixture used is sticky enough to stay on the chain, but not so sticky excess dirt sticks to it.
The can is made from recyclable steel. In the future we'd love to use recycled steel. You can recycle the steel in your metal recycling bin. Take the plastic bits off first, put these in the landfill bin.
