AARDBalm_-_Updated_-_SmallAARDBalm - Booth #1839  

AARDBalm provides an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional formalin based embalming fluids. AARDBalm has many benefits. The deceased remains in a more natural supple state following treatment with AARDBalm. It’s cost effective to use compared to traditional fluids. The use of extraction systems is minimized. All ingredients are non hazardous in use and disposal. Therefore no fumes produced posing a health risk to the user or a threat of ground water table contamination of burial grounds. The above are substantial benefits for the funeral industry workers, the environment, and the families of the deceased.
