About this project
Currently millions of gallons of dangerous toxic chemicals are being sprayed on our food!
EcoSeal has developed NMX as a safe alternative to these chemical solutions. NMX is an essential oil based biopesticide that was invented by Dr. Geoffrey Smith and Dr. Hugo Morales. Essential oils are like Nature's Pesticides.
Over the last two years, NMX has been tested and been shown to be as effective at protecting food as synthetic pesticides.
By the way, NMX does not harm honey bees. Bees actually harvest nectar from the plant that produces our oil.
The key ingredient is so safe that EcoSeal has made a line of lotions out of it.
EcoSeal is trying to bring this awesome green safe bio-pesticide to market so that people don't have to eat toxic chemicals.
EcoSeal is setting up and performing more efficacy tests so that we can get NMX registered with the EPA and prove that it is an effective alternative to synthetic chemicals and pesticides.
Currently we are raising funds to get NMX registered with the EPA. Due to the heavily regulated industry of pesticides, even the registration of a safe food based product takes a lot of time and money. As a startup we need to hire a consultant to talk to the EPA for us before we can even begin the registration process. Large chemical companies have a direct line to the EPA and are not bothered by the large registration fees because they have their lobbyists and tons of money.
Here is the story of EcoSeal.
Risks and challenges
As with any startup, there are areas of risk with this commercialization project. The largest risks associated with this project are complications with EPA registration process and the efficacy of the product not competing with existing organic pesticides. We are doing our best to control both of these through extensive research and working with the best and brightest people. In order to ensure that the NMX technology is a market success we have conducted extensive market research. This research revolved around a National Science Foundation funded market study where we identified major pain points that organic farmers have that are not being met by current organic pesticides. We are mitigating the risk of NMX getting tangled up in the EPA registration process by working with one of the best and most passionate biopesticide consultants in the industry.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
