Ethylene glycol monobutyl ether
4-nonylphenol branched ethoxylated
So lye, and two other ingredients are surfactants and solvents.
The KBS web site indicates the product is eco safe. But you clearly have to worry about toxicity and skin damage.
The 3rd ingredient, the EU has flagged dangerous to the aquatic environment and regulates its use (first hits when doing a search). You can buy lye, but the other two are industrial sales only. Appear to be Dow Chemicals products, that comes up in a search. So the price is warranted by these ingredients not being common nor cheap to buy by anyone.
You swear by KBS products, so $18/liter must be worth it. I'm guessing you stock pile the 15liter jug.
So when I searched for KBS Aquaclean, it must have brought up an Australian web site of theirs, using the link in your tag line brings up a much better price of $22/gal.

One word worth mentioning some people think using things full strength means better performance. Just the opposite with this stuff. Dilute it according to directions or you are just pouring money out. it work better with hot water as well.
I've spilled it full strength on my bare hands and just wiped it off or rinsed it off with no ill effects but I also grew up washing parts in ethel gasoline with my bare hands.
We used to make our own lye (potassium hydroxide) out of ashes to make soap for washing with when I was a kid
