A perfect starch-based, plastic-free glue for paper, cardboard, and other fibrous materials. Odorless and transparent. Free from petroleum-derived solvents or any toxic substances.

Feel great about where it comes from:

- Manufactured in EU? Yes - Germany
- What's it made from? Glucose sacharides, sucrose, water, vegetable glycerol DAB E422, plus food preservative (phenoxyethanol)
- What's it packaged in? Virgin plastic refillable bottle. We're not happy with this, in fact we've held-out a whole year before stocking this glue for lack of better alternatives - but we'll continue to seek / make a totally plastic-free glue!
- Shipping packaging from manufacturer to us: Cardboard box, plastic shrink-wrap (Eugh!! This was our first order of this product, we'll demand without-shrinkwrap next time)
