The gold standard in determining ingredients safety is an organization based in the United States called the Environmental Working Group or EWG.
Their database called Skin Deep - analyzes a wide range of ingredients used in the manufacture of cosmetics and household products and rates them on a scale of 1 - 10.
1 to 3 being the best and safest.
8 to 10 being the worst and most unsafe.
Here is how the CLEANZ ingredients stack up.
The PH of our concentrate is between 8 - 8.2 which is very slightly Alkaline.
As a comparison, water has a neutral pH of 7, which indicates that it is neither Acidic nor Alkaline. It is normal for water to have a range of between 6.5 and 8.5.
So even though it is a very effective cleaning solution, the Cleanz formula is as neutral as water.
The reason it cleans so well is to do with the unique combination and quantities of its ingredients.
The Glucosides Coco and Decyl are surfactants that lift the dirt, grime and germs off the surface and suspend them in the solution. All of that is then washed down the drain.
Sodium Citrate and Bicarbonate allow the surfactants to work more effectively. The citrate helps breakdown down grease and dirt and makes them more soluble. The bicarbonate neutralizes acids and odors and helps to remove stains, dirt, and grime.
Sodium Phytate is a stabilizing agent commonly found in natural cosmetics as a preservative.
Chamomile - Well know for centuries for its therapeutic, calming and anti-inflammatory properties, recent studies also show it to be a powerful antibacterial, antifungal and antiallergenic.
We have found that when combining this ancient ingredient within our formula, it provides the most gentle but powerful clean, leaving your skin and sensory systems intact and without irritation.
Cleanz is the most gentle but effective cleaning product on the market today, making it safe for your family, your home and our environment.

In this blog we look at this really murky pool of information about microfiber, its Positives, Negatives, the alternatives, and how green those alternatives are.
When I say murky, I really mean really murky. You can find a bunch of info saying how bad microfibre is, written by companies that promote/ sell alternatives, and then when one starts digging into the alternatives, you learn that they are not so squeaky clean either.
We're well aware of the health risks linked to heavy metals, pesticides, and herbicides. However, many traditional household and personal care products harbor less-discussed hazardous ingredients that contribute to the toxic load in our bodies. This accumulation of toxins, termed “body burden,” can potentially disrupt hormones, compromise the immune system, and heighten sensitivity to allergens.
Here are some straightforward yet impactful ways to reduce your family's exposure to toxins this year:
