Based on the use of natural ingredients and essential oils, our organic cleaners have cleaning properties equal with the ones of conventional cleaners and have shown a high efficiency fighting dirt and stains on a variety of surfaces.
EcoCert® is an internationally recognized certification that guarantees the genuine practice of environmental respect throughout the formulation and manufacturing of a product. It is the leading European authority on organic and ecological certification. EcoCert was founded in 1991 in France and is based in Europe but conducts inspections in over 80 countries, making it one of the largest internationally recognized organic certifications in the world. The EcoCert Natural Cleaning Products standard was developed as a way of addressing the inadequacies of official standards in the cleaning product industry, where an ‘innocent until proven guilty’ rule applies to chemicals cleaners.
Ecocert is the choice of European health food stores, who generally have more stringent requirements as to what constitutes a “green” product. Ecocert requirements exceed those of Ecologo and the Green Seal, which allow SLES and ethoxylated alcohols which have been linked to cancer. These certifications also allow petroleum bi-products. There are no set guidelines as to what constitutes a green product and while we commend these other certifications for initiating change, there is obviously still a way to go. This is why AspenClean chose to work with EcoCert to ensure that we continually push our products to be as good for your health, home and the environment as possible.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. Their research shows that the cleaning industry still has a long way to go to ensure that the cleaning products we use are safe. Many brands make it difficult, if not impossible, for consumers to learn whether a product contains chemicals that can cause reproductive problems, exacerbate asthma, burn or irritate your skin or harm the environment.
Their analysis revealed that:
The AspenClean Difference
The EWG studied 237 bathroom cleaners to assess their safety. Only 4% received an “A”, more than 50% of the cleaners received an “F” rating. Many of these products contained chemical ingredients with proven side effects, including everything from skin irritation to cancer. We are proud to say that every single AspenClean product was deemed “A-level”. In addition to presenting AspenClean with their best rating, the EWG has added our Bathroom Cleaner, Glass Cleaner, Dish Soap and All-in-One Concentrate to their select list of "top-rated" products. We value and appreciate the EWG's continued support of AspenClean products in their mission to promote human health and the environment!
About Leaping Bunny certification: By 1996, 'cruelty-free' shopping had become popular, but it was also confusing, sometimes misleading, and ultimately frustrating. Companies had begun designing their own bunny logos, abiding by their own definition of 'cruelty-free' or 'animal friendly' without the participation of animal protection groups. In response, eight national animal protection groups banded together to form the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC promotes a single comprehensive standard and an internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo. The logo serves to clearly label and promote trustworthy, animal-friendly companies.
To achieve Leaping Bunny certification the below conditions must be met. AspenClean is proud of its commitment to cruelty-free, vegan products and of its partnership with Leaping Bunny in the fight for animal protection.
