Each product consists of purified water, ‘active’ ingredients and perfume.
Active ingredients are in charge of the ‘dirty job’ and the reason why our products are such efficient cleaners. We have chosen to use only ingredients of plant origin such as coconut, sugar, chicory, or wheat; we use farm waste only for non-food ends. Moreover, these resources are renewable and completely biodegradable*, so that we do not deplete what Nature offers us and so leave them impaired for future generations.
Adding perfumes to our products results in a very pleasant experience for consumers. We choose only perfumes with a low impact on the environment and on people’s skin. And that are at least 90% biodegradable, so that once perfumes are released into the environment they are broken down by natural microorganisms and become harmless. But what is much more important is that we protect the health of consumers who choose us, so we ensure that our products are scented but at the same time allergen-free! (detectable threshold in final product is < 0.01 % in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009).
*According to Regulation CEE 648/04 “Ultimate aerobic biodegradation” means the level of biodegradation achieved when the surfactant is totally used by micro-organisms in the presence of oxygen resulting in its breakdown to carbon dioxide, water and mineral salts of any other elements present (mineralisation) [Reg. CEE 648/04 – Art. 2, 8]. Surfactants in detergents shall be considered as biodegradable if the level of biodegradability (mineralisation) measured… is at least 60 % within twenty-eight days (Reg. CEE 648/04 – Annex III).
