OrganiShield is a registered organic biochemical insecticide and miticide. Its active ingredient is a molecule called Sucrose Octanoate Esters (SOEs), which belong to the organic chemical family sucrose fatty acid esters. SOEs were first discovered in 1939 for use in cosmetics, food additives, and food preservatives to work as emulsifiers, which allow ingredients to bind/mix with each other, such as oil with water.
SOEs with insecticidal properties were discovered in the late 1980s when researchers found that certain plants secrete SOEs from the tiny hairs of their leaves to ward off pests. Some of those plants include wild tobacco, wild tomato, wild potato, and petunia plants. The insecticidal properties of SOEs work by dissolving the waxy protective coating of the target pests causing them to dry out and die.
After years of research, our team has been able to formulate a method of producing insecticidal SOEs on a larger scale, allowing us to bring nature’s most effective and safest pest control to the world.
