Gem Premier White Shavings are a mix of kiln-dried douglas fir and true firs.
Gem White contains almost no phenols (chemical compounds in “pitch/resin” which provides three very important benefits:
-The shavings will absorb more fluids than other woods.
-The shavings are essentially a hypoallergenic bedding material (Phenols are the main culprits of allergic reactions in animals to bedding)
-The Shavings will break down into compost approximately 5 times faster than pine or other wood shavings.
