Has anyone heard of this product? It is reported to stop soil from absorbing water. Which in most cases isn't what we want, but in the case of road building would be a very good thing. No gravel is needed just the native soil. They say it's 100 percent organic and non toxic. Thoughts?

I have heard of many products like it. Usually lime or concrete are used to make soil cement here, never seen a liquid only application done. Not sure if it is snake oil or just "we have always done it that way, why try something new and easier"
