Dear Consumers, Partners and Distributors,
Due to all the rumors created by disloyal competition, we are demystifying the process of production of our transparent paper.
Our transparent paper is composed of a 100% natural regenerated cellulose film. Regenerated Cellulose is a film obtained from 100% refined cellulose, which comes from the wood pulp.
The process of production of the transparent paper does NOT alter the chemical nature of the cellulose film and for this the process of production uses chemically inert, insoluble, infusible and innocuous material.
This film is treated with emollients which give the softness and humidity with emphasis on its high shininess and the highest transparency.
Glycerin is a natural substance used in many perishable and non-perishable products to give softness and shininess to the product. Some of these products include:
In cooking in general
Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colorless, thick liquid which freezes to a gummy paste and which has a high boiling point. It attracts moisture and gives the product a shiny and soft texture. This is the reason for the use of glycerin. It can only be harmful when re-heated various times at very high temperatures. This does not happen with aLeda as it can only burn once and cannot be re-used.
Our product is made from treated eucalyptus cellulose, re-managed and reforested in a sustainable way in accordance to ISO 14001, which makes it ecologically correct.
These trees are planted primarily to cover raw material necessities and at the same time to preserve the environment through high technology plantation authorized by IBAMA (Brazilian Environmental Institute) and complying with technical foresting criteria through sustainable managing and selective cutting.
The cellulose used to make our product has a biodegradable certificate as per European Laws.
While we are glad Aleda admitted the obvious truth as of today their USA website still has the old very false information posted;
This information above is a "PURE LIE". Paper is naturally BROWN in color - not Clear. Clear papers are made using a chemically intrusive process and would likely have a harsher impact on the environment then white paper. We have filed a fraud complaint against Purepapers.com / Pure Clear Rolling Papers LLC with the FTC and we hope our readers will do the same. Pure Papers is a marketing company from Beverly Hills California. They are not a longstanding Tobacco company such as Republic, Imperial, HBI or Gizeh/Mascotte. The truly healthiest cigarette is said to be one rolled in an unbleached paper (Reference)
Here's another example of "Smoke-Lies":
It seems like so many companies just can't resist - continually false advertising to consumers. Smokies (AKA Smoklies) is the newest clear paper we have seen. They joined right in by printing lies. Smokies are not made from vegetables and they are not made from 100% cellulose. Cellophane does contain chemicals, and their product also contains lead and arsenic, possibly at significantly higher levels then a quality white paper. Another FTC complaint has been filed against them.
One last very important thing - Clear papers are really a LOT of fun to roll with (They're a 'Trip' hah hah). They also burn quite well, nice slow and smooth. A friend pulled out some clear cigarettes at a pub the other day and we ended up having a blast showing them to everyone in the place. They are a great attention-getter and conversation-starter! We do like the product, we think it's fun to use and roll with, we just don't like the Aleda, PURE, and Smokies guys printing false information and tricking consumers into thinking the product is more natural then regular white rolling papers.
All smoking is bad for you!
