The Effetto Mariposa Végétalex is a revolutionary tyre sealant: biodegradable and totally plastic free. It's great for the environment, long lasting, and provides a high degree of puncture protection for tubeless, tubular and inner-tube applications.


Formulated over 2 years by Effetto Mariposa, Végétalex very closely mimics their well-established Caffélatex sealant, with a much smaller environmental footprint. Végétalex contains only plant-based particles and fibers – finely ground olive stones and cellulose fibers – to deliver a tremendous puncture clogging effect. This mix, held together by xanthan gum (produced from simple sugars), fixes punctures ranging from small tyre porosities to bigger cuts (up to 5 mm) fast and in a permanent way.


Extremely durable and low maintenance, Végétalex can last up to 6 months inside most tires. Végétalex contains no ammonia or other aggressive chemicals, nor is it toxic or corrosive. Which means that, in addition to being completely biodegradable, it's also very easy to clean off surfaces.


Végétalex will last 2 years after the bottle is first open, provided the bottle is closed properly, stored away from direct sunlight, and the storage temperature is within -15/+30°C (+5/+86°F). It’s important to shake the bottle well before injecting the sealant into tyres. Effetto Mariposa suggests using about 20% more than the quantities recommended by the iCaffelatex app for Caffélatex. If extra protection is needed – for example taking a multiple days ride on rocky, thorny terrain – it is suggested to add 30 ml of product to the recommended quantity.
