Oasis Brand Floral Products News Release March 2018

The most recognised and trusted brand for floriculture products introduces OASIS® Bio Floral Foam Maxlife.

Following years of development and in response to consumer trends and the demands of its customers, Smithers-Oasis is introducing the latest generation of OASIS® Bio Floral Foam Maxlife, the world’s first floral foam that is biodegradable.
Today’s consumers are looking for companies to value the environment as much as they do. Floral shoppers, especially, are increasingly socially responsible and demand that even the most exquisite designs do as much to protect nature as they do to capture its beauty.
“Our customers are at the heart of our business,” said Adriana Aguilar Garza, Wholesale Marketing Manager. “After listening to their valuable feedback, we are delighted to announce that we have upgraded the technology of our floral foam to consider the entire lifecycle of the product, today’s modern landfill, and a reduced environmental impact.”
OASIS® Bio Floral Foam Maxlife’s new bio foam formulation is designed for modern landfills and attracts microbes that break the foam down into methane, CO2 and organic matter. Testing based on the American Society for Testing (ASTM) and Materials standards shows that OASIS® Floral Foam Maxlife will biodegrade 51.5 percent within 365 days in biologically active landfill conditions(1), while also keeping flowers fresh up to 50 percent longer than other floral foams. Testing is ongoing and as biodegradation rates continue, further information will be released.
For more than 60 years, Smithers-Oasis has continued efforts not only in the advancement of the floral industry but also in sustaining the environment. Smithers-Oasis was the first in the industry to eliminate the use of chlorofluorocarbon from floral foam production and has successfully reduced volatile organic compound emissions (VOCs) by more than 85 percent over the last 25 years.
Adriana also commented “As part of the Smithers-Oasis culture”, the company is constantly looking for ways to be an increasingly sustainable company and provide environmentally friendly products and solutions to its customers.”
Additional information on Smithers-Oasis’ ongoing sustainability program can be found at www.smithersoasis.com/sustainability

(1) This product has been shown by ASTM D5511 to biodegrade 51.5% within 365 days in biologically active landfill conditions. Appropriate facilities may not exist in your area. The rate and extent shown do not mean that the product will continue to decompose.

Colours Available: 0095 Black

Details
Save time and money by using fewer stems thanks to the latest OASIS® innovation in floral foam - OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife.

Product Features
OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife has the same properties that you have come to expect from OASIS® green floral foams; the foam is of an exceptional quality and uniformity, ensuring super-fast saturation, low drainage and superb grip to hold your stems in place. Just like OASIS® green OASIS® Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife, you can achieve up to 50% longer flower life than with previous foams.

The added benefit of using OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife is its light-absorbing black colour. Black floral foam is much easier to conceal than green, as it literally fades into the shadows of your flowers and foliage, meaning gaps are less noticeable and you can use fewer stems overall to achieve the same full-looking arrangement. You can make savings in time and money that will help your business achieve a better profit.

The stylish colour also means you can choose not to hide or cover the foam at all; OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife can remain exposed to create innovative, contemporary arrangements that show off the underlying structure rather than concealing it. You can even get creative and use the foam to display gifts, cards, or other items along with flowers – with OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife your designs will be the talk of the town!

Typical Uses
You can use OASIS® Noir Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife in all the ways you would use regular OASIS® Ideal Floral Foam Maxlife – it’s perfect for wedding, event, funeral and everyday arrangements.

Oasis Brand Floral Products News Release June 2018

Embrace the space using NEW OASIS® Noir Floral Foam Maxlife.
Following months of continuous development and market research, OASIS® Floral Products is introducing a brand new innovative floral foam called OASIS® Noir Floral Foam Maxlife.

One of the biggest challenges facing florists are increasing costs, specifically fresh flowers and foliage. These cost increases are becoming harder to pass onto their customers. OASIS® Noir Floral Foam Maxlife enables florists to create arrangements using less flowers and foliage, with a reduced labour time.

Anthony Hart, Marketing Director comments “The magic behind OASIS® Noir Floral Foam Maxlife is its black colour. Noir absorbs more light and is less reflective than green floral foams. This means spaces in the floral foam are less noticeable and can be used creatively when producing an arrangement”.

Anthony also commented “The clever use of space means you can use fewer flowers which in turn means less arranging time. The overall effect and appearance of the arrangement is not compromised, enabling you to charge the same price as an arrangement that contained more flowers. The nett effect is greater margin/profit for the florist.”

OASIS® Noir Floral Foam Maxlife has the same high quality properties that you have come to expect from our green floral foams including; high quality, up to 50% longer flower life than in previous foams, super hydration and superb grip that secures your stems in place.

Market research was conducted with a panel of florists who compared traditional green floral foam to new noir floral foam. All participants found by using new noir floral foam they could create comparable looking arrangements with a reduced amount of flowers and foliage. This is demonstrated in the examples below: -
