Carnauba wax
Carnauba wax is a product harvested from the Carnauba palm, which grows in Brazil. It is a non-toxic wax that is used in the food and cosmetic industry as well as in the manufacture of medicines. Carnauba wax has no fragrance and is the hardest of all known waxes. It is applied in undiluted form to rammed earth floors to lend them better resistance to mechanical wear and abrasion, dirt accumulation and moisture ingress.

Cellulose
Cellulose is the most common organic compound, a primary constituent of plant cell walls, and the most numerous of all polysaccharides. Cellulose is well known as a raw material for paper making, where it is used as a binder. This same binding property can also be exploited for the manufacture of deco clay facing plasters, clay paints or brush-applied clay plasters. A so-called methyl-cellulose is used to stabilise the clay-earth mixture. Clay plaster mortars that are enriched with cellulose are more resistant to wear and abrasion.

conluto
conluto is our company name and is a linguistic construction that derives from the origins of our language: Latin. An ancient language for an ancient building material – how appropriate! “Luto” is the Latin word for earth, while “con” is Italian for “with”. “conluto” therefore means “with earth”.
