Founding Partner Greenscents
Transparent about what goes into our products
Our mission is to produce household cleaning and laundry products that are the most sustainable and ethical that you can buy and we’re well on our way! At Greenscents, we never use SLES/SLS/ALS/ALES, phosphates, enzymes, chlorine bleaches, palm oil, parabens and GM ingredients. The list below contains a few of ingredients that make up our products.
Organic eucalyptus globulus oil
The refreshing aroma of this essential oil is an important ingredient in the Greenscents ‘herbal’ fragrance blend. The strong antiseptic and antimicrobial properties of Eucalyptus globulus oil naturally boost the cleaning power of our products.
Organic orange essential oil
This zesty, uplifting oil is a key component of the ‘citrus’ blend of Greenscents fragrances and is a natural degreasing agent. Sweet orange oil is a proven antimicrobial agent helping to neutralise e.coli & salmonella and is naturally antiseptic and anti-inflammatory too.
Organic peppermint essential oil
In addition to its wonderfully refreshing fragrance, peppermint oil has powerful antibacterial properties, which make it ideal for our natural cleaning & laundry products. As an added bonus, peppermint acts as a natural pest deterrent, too!
Organic aloe vera
The moisturising and healing properties of aloe vera are important in many Greenscents products. Aloe vera has no known side effects for topical use, which makes it suitable for those with sensitive skin.
Organic cocoa butter
Skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis can be treated when cocoa butter is applied to the skin. Cocoa butter has natural moisture-retaining abilities which make it suitable for both skin care and as a laundry conditioner.
Organic jojoba oil
This versatile oil is a clear and it has moisturising qualities for the skin. Jojoba oil is an effective fungicide, which is useful when cleaning bathrooms or kitchens where mould may be an issue.
Organic cider vinegar
Organic cider vinegar is a great disinfectant and deodoriser as well as having many health benefits. At Greenscents, organic cider vinegar is an important component of our loo cleaner, where the vinegar not only kills germs but helps to dissolve limescale as well.
Organic lavandin essential oil
The calming aromas of lavender create some of our most popular fragrances. Like all essential oils, lavendin oil is a complex mix of naturally occurring phytochemicals with special properties that can have antimicrobial & anti-inflammatory effects.
Organic rosemary essential oil
Rosemary has a clean, refreshing, aromatic smell and has been used as an astringent since Roman times. It also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which are a really useful addition to Greenscents products.
