del Piretro

Since our company was founded, we have been offering the use of natural insecticides with an ecological awareness that was ahead of its time. Thanks to Pyrethrum, an active ingredient of wholly natural origin, we developed our strong commitment to the development and formulation of environmentally friendly solutions.

What is pyrethrum?

Pyrethrum is an insecticide of plant origin obtained from the flowers of a plant from the Asteraceae family, Chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium, which looks very much like a common daisy.
