SlickAway remediator for oil contamination

 nature cleansing naturally


Oily animal treatment is reviewed in the Gulf of Mexico

No need for scrubbing

No need for scrubbing with mayonnaise and handling the animals and birds for hours on end, a process that traumatizes animals and requires considerable man power. Trials show that spraying a SlickAway™ solution onto the feathers, a significant proportion of the crude oil (approximately (75-80%) came off by moving them around in a pool of water or by rinsing with a shower spray; an application baby oil or vegetable oil removes any remaining crude oil residue.

"...Aquinoc is the only one that works.”

Quote from Lewis Patton; Superintendent Caughnawaga Golf Course: "We use environmentally designed practices on our course. I have tried many different biological products to treat our ponds and Aquinoc is the only one that works.”


SlickAway™ breaks down oil in contaminated water and soil.

Micro organisms are nature’s recycling units. They are naturally found in the soil and water, but sometimes when the job is too big, the microorganisms that are already present in the environment cannot keep up.

The InocUsol SlickAway™ formulation is based on several types of natural microbes. Due to the way in which the product is brewed it also contains proteins that process hydrocarbons and nutrients that stimulate the growth of the polluted environment to reestablish the plant life in marshland and protect the marine and other wildlife affected by the oil spill.

SlickAway™ degrades hydrocarbons and other pollutants, like organic solvents, even in the presence of chemicals like surfactants.

SlickAway™ gets to work by introducing certain oil degrading microbes and stimulating the natural environment to do the job of biodegradation together with the product.

SlickAway™ for birds and other wild life

Using microbes to clean naturally

In our trials with removing crude oil from ducks, we found that after spraying a SlickAway solution onto the feathers, a significant proportion of the crude oil (approximately (75-80%) came off by moving them around in a pool of water or by rinsing with a shower spray.

We are able to significantly reduce the amount of time and handling needed to clean the oil off of the animals by using this microbial product.

It has been noted that, if necessary, an application baby oil or vegetable oil will remove any remaining oil residue. This process can be far more beneficial, effective, and less traumatic than soap and toothbrushes.

In addition, ingesting the product by preening themselves, or by drinking water from the pool, will not only be safe but will actually help the animals to clear toxins from their systems that they may have already ingested.

SlickAway™ is a probiotic for the environment

Using microbes to clean naturally

SlickAway™ is based on microbes that are present in the environment all the time.

The micro organisms are found in soil, associated with the roots and leaves of vegetation and present on the skin/coats of animals; they are probiotics found internally as part of animal and our digestive systems; they support the immune system of plants and animals.

SlickAway™ is sprayed on the oil in the marshlands and on the plants and animals; it digests the oil converting the toxins into products that help the natural ecosystem to restore itself. If the animals ingest the product it is not harmful it acts as a probiotic to clean their digestive tracts and improve their immune response.

Because the composition of crude oil is complex, usually natural microbial species will take too long to biodegrade crude oil in these large quantities, they are overwhelmed. In contrast to many other products InocUsol products are a combination of beneficial yeasts, bacteria and fungi that work in synergy as microbes do in the environment.

They work together as an ecosystem some supporting the micro environments, for example providing food for other species, while others are the "workers" actually breaking down organic waste and pollution; as a whole they stimulate the natural microbes in the surrounding environment to help them do their job of recycling organic waste to the soil and naturally cleaning surface water.


GRAS regulatory denomination - highest safety code 1

All the bacteria used in InocUsol products are isolated at our product development. The microbes in SlickAway™ are safe, they are published in Environment Canada Domestic Substance List; they all are in the food chain and approved by Heath Canada as probiotics for human consumption.

Internationally they are listed under the GRAS regulatory denomination (Generally Regarded As Safe) and have the highest safety code, level 1.

After the SlickAway™ treatment is finished the microbes will only grow when there is food for them otherwise they remain dormant in the environment; they rest like their relatives in the same families in the soil, on the leaves of plants and in the marshlands.

SlickAway™ hydrocarbons removal

An automatic system removes the need for continuous spraying

The application of SlickAway™ can be done in a two step process.
First, the liquid product will be sprayed on top of the polluting oil to work on the acute phase.
Secondly, an on-site station can be created to feed the area gradually over a period of time.

In conclusion SlickAway™ is a unique option to help nature to recover quickly from an ecological disaster in a timely and cost-effective way.
