Inspired by personal needs, Greenscents started producing eco-friendly cleaning products in 2011, needing non-allergenic products for their family. Inspired by the gap in the market, but also horrified by the lack of regulation regarding the ingredients placed in regular cleaning products, a highly ethical company was borne out of necessity.
This ethical company with high moral standards and a passion for the conservation of the planet were determined from the start that Greenscents would be transparent about ingredients, and would only produce a range that carries certification by The Soil Association.
According to Christina Hawkes, the Founder of Greenscents, “Because the water content of all Greenscents products is reduced, the products are concentrated and economical; therefore they go a long way. The 20-liter laundry liquid is sufficient for 880 washes, while the ever-so-popular 20-liter washing-up liquid cleans 8,000 bowls of dirty crockery and pans. We have been offering customers value for money without compromising on quality, for the past 10 years and will continue to do so with innovative and eco-friendly products.”
The Citrus variant contains aloe vera leaf juice, decyl glucoside, soap nut shells, orange oil, xanthan gum, glycerine, shikakai shells, benzyl alcohol, dehydroacetic acid, and rosemary oil.
The lovely Lavender dishwashing liquid is made from aloe vera leaf juice, decyl glucoside, soap nut shells, lavender oil, xanthan gum, glycerine, shikakai shells, benzyl alcohol, and dehydroacetic acid.
The Minty variant contains aloe vera leaf juice, decyl glucoside, soap nut shells, peppermint oil, xanthan gum, glycerine, shikakai shells, benzyl alcohol, dehydroacetic acid, and spearmint oil.
Nonscents is suitable for individuals who suffer from allergies and need an even gentler natural option. The ingredients of this scent-free product are aloe vera leaf juice, decyl glucoside, soap nut shells, xanthan gum, glycerine, shikakai shells, benzyl alcohol, and dehydroacetic acid.
Green scents Washing Up Liquid is packaged in beautiful 500 ml amber glass bottles fitted with aluminum caps and comes with an additional pump head. 5-litre and 20-liter refill options are available in UN-approved HDPE containers. These can be returned for free cleaning and refills. The product should be stored away from direct sunlight in temperatures between 5 and 25 degrees Celsius.
5ml or I pump should clean a medium bowl of dishes. The detergent should be added to hot running water, for optimum results. Dishes covered with stubborn dirt should preferably be soaked in a concentrated solution before washing.
Their determination to do no harm to the planet and uphold high standards without taking shortcuts, paid off generously when Greenscents, leading manufacturers of eco-friendly cleaning products, recently received a prestigious award, for being the most ethical brand of eco-friendly laundry and household products in the UK. Criteria for scoring were based on their treatment of the environment, sustainability, the impact of their products on the health and well-being of humans and animals, and the company ethos. The bespoke products are hand-made in small batches by artisans in Dulverton Somerset, Great Britain, using only the finest ingredients. Driven by their ethical values and being aware of the impact of the carbon footprint on nature, products are packaged in reusable biopolymer bottles, manufactured from sugar cane waste.
