THE LIVING GREEN STANDARD

We make our products with meaningful transparency and thoughtful lifecycles.

Our Ingredients

We aim create the safest and most effective products for you and your family.

All natural cleaning products rely on powerful surfactants, and we ensure that they are free from contaminants or unacceptable precursors. Our US Natural Product Assn certification requires us to ensure control of ingredients and to ensure only ingredients clear of any contaminants are used. These may be more expensive but they meet our values. Some other companies formulations use ingredients, even green ingredients, that contain low levels of toxicants, like benzene derivatives, artificial fragrances, unacceptable preservatives, etc.
These harmful residues can be in other cleaning products and these may cause irritation for people with sensitivities. For example Ethanol is an effective plant-based solvent but we do not use if methanol is added.

We use plant based and mineral Ingredients
We use a variety of bio-based surfactants but mainly Alkyl polyglucosides (made from corn).

Our own careful processing

Living Green cleaners are made in our own factory in Auckland, New Zealand. Our high levels of ISO9001 and GMP quality certifications which means we use good hygiene are able to make with Living Green products good hygiene and therefore we can use a less aggressive preservatives. Having our own factory means we can control all aspects of our ingredients, manufacture, packing and packaging. Unlike most of our competitors we do not contract the making of our products to a third party and therefore we are not reliant on them to make our Living Green products to our quality.
Some of the natural essential oils we use such as eucalyptus and Manuka oils also disinfect and independent tests show many of our products natural kill 99% of Escheri.coli a common test pathogen.

Our factory manufactures to international EcoWarranty

Our factory is certified as eco sustainable by the international EcoWarranty certification. We are one of the few manufacturers in New Zealand with this. We minimise waste, recycle where possible, and minimise energy usage

We do not test on animals and our formulations are Vegan

We do not test our products on animals, nor are our products made with animal-derived ingredients so we are vegan friendly

Hypo-allergenic + Sensitive formulas

The ingredients at the concentrations used have no potential for eliciting skin irritation or inducing sensitisation. Many products claim to be green, plant-based, and non-toxic but can still irritate those are sensitive. At Living Green we have created our range of home cleaning products to be safe and low sensitivity for the benefit of those amongst who are sensitive to chemicals

No SLS, SCS, or SLES

Sodium Laurel sulphate (SLS), Sodium coco sulphate (SCS) and Sodium laurel ethyl sulphate (SLES) all can cause skin irritation. Some other suppliers use sodium coco sulphate from coconut oil however this is still an irritant.

No synthetic fragrances

Our products do not contain fragrances or no artificial dyes in the product. We only use organic essential oils that provide both a cleaning, and in some cases antibacterial function, as well as a natural scent.

Our biodegradable ingredients

Our Natural ingredients come from plants and minerals that are biodegradable and/or return to nature.
