Glue sold in glass jars was very popular in France in the early nineteenth century. So the Italian businessman Aldo Balma went one step further to vanquish his competitors: he invented an unbreakable aluminum packaging complete with a brush holder in the middle, and added a delicious scent of almond that immediately imprinted itself onto the collective mind.
Coccoina white adhesive paste was the first environment friendly "GREEN" product of its kind to be made. Coccoina paste is unique because of its almond fragrance. It glues paper, art work, clothes, photos, labels and is easy to use and apply.
Potato starch dextrin and water are cooked in a double-boiler to produce it. Glycerin and almond essence are added once the mixture is softened. Then when the paste is ready, it is decanted for a month in the jars, after which it is ready for use.
It's safe for children too. Not that they should eat it, but if they do - no worries. All the ingredients are non-toxic, solvent-free, and not dangerous.
