Based on well-documented findings in Canada, USA, Belgium, Scandinavia and other parts of Western Europe, we DO NOT USE any of the following ingredients.
Phosphates: Used as water softeners and to improve cleaning, they can stimulate excessive growth of algae in the receiving waters. These algae often grow in such great numbers that the water becomes starved of oxygen, killing fish and plant life. This condition is known as eutrophication and exists in Lake Erie, North America. Lake Erie is practically devoid of all marine life.
E.D.T.A. (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid): This is sometimes used as a substitute for, but also in addition to, phosphates. It is a sequestering agent that attracts heavy metals such as lead and mercury, both of which have known carcinogenic properties. These heavy metals can eventually find their way back into water supplies and are extremely difficult to remove completely.
Enzymes: Enzymes are present in all living organisms. They can and do cause severe skin irritations and asthma attacks. In the manufacturing process, enzymes can be genetically engineered and have been known to cause pulmonary haemorrhaging.
Optical Brighteners: Used in Laundry products to give an illusion of "whiteness", they attach themselves to fabric to reflect "White Light". Clothes only appear cleaner. Optical Brighteners are extremely difficult to biodegrade and can cause severe skin irritation. They can also cause mutations to microorganisms in receiving waters.
Chlorine Bleaches: These are contained in conventional Toilet Cleaners, Sanitizers, Nappy Powders, Washing Powders and Dishwasher Detergents. During the breakdown of these types of bleach carcinogenic, toxic substances are formed,which are akin to the banned pesticide D.D.T.
Petroleum-derived Additives: Most conventional household cleaners contain petroleum-derived additives and detergents. These often break down incompletely and contain toxic impurities that are highly irritant, cause allergic reactions and can endanger plant and animal life.
In addition to the ingredients listed above, the following ingredients are found in the majority of conventional, propriety brands of Soaps, Toiletries and Cosmetics.
Chemical Plasticisers: Added to soaps to make them more malleable and easier to machine mould.
Formaldehyde: Traditionally used to preserve corpses, formaldehyde is used to prolong the life of many conventional products!
Glycerin or Glycerine: Unless specifically stated that it is from a vegetable source, glycerin or glycerine will be obtained from the rendered carcases of dead animals.
Lanolin: Extracted from the processed wool from both dead and live animals.
Sodium Tallowate: Made from water, caustic soda and the rendered fat from dead animals.
Synthetic Dyes: Make finished products more visually appealing.
Synthetic Perfumes: Cheap substitutes for natural oils and essences.
Titanium Dioxide: A colouring agent that enhances the opacity of products to make them look uniformly clearer. Causes pollution in water courses
You do not need to use products containing these noxious ingredients. Use Bio-D products.
