Natural Cremation, (also known as Alkali Hydrolysis) the newest technology in cremation, replaces the use of fire with the use of water. Natural Cremation is the process by which our bodies decompose naturally when they are buried in the earth. Typically this anaerobic process takes 20 years to fully decompose and return a human body back to bones. In a Natural Cremation, Alkaline Hydrolysis is used to gently speed up the process with a combination of natural base chemicals sodium and potassium, water pressure, and heat. Natural Cremation is and Eco-Friendly process.
