Only sustainable components such as tea saponin, soapwort, soapnut and many other plants are the basis for our products, replacing the chemicals which mostly originate from petroleum or palm oil. We use washing active substances from pure plant power, which are extracted through a careful process with pure mountain water from the Pfänder region, without being modified chemically.
ORGANIC: THE PURENESS OF NATURE
We go for the ORGANIC standard for all our products, the highest guarantee! You may only reach that standard if the plants are controlled in organic growing, if no pesticides are used and if mother earth stays healthy. Due to the fact that we source our basic materials directly from the farmers, we can guarantee their natural origin. This unique quality standard is what characterizes us, so that we also fulfill the highest standard of the organic guarantee for detergents and cleaning agents.
QUALITY: HIGHEST REQUIREMENTS
When using our products you will notice that these often foam less, but do offer a high cleaning power. We made this choice consciously, because the chemical foam enhancers do not have a cleaning effect per se, but only give the impression that the product is effective. Our products are effective with little foam, which in turn helps to save water during the rinsing process.
ENVIRONMENT: NATURAL PURENESS THAT KEEPS PURE
Our products are easily broken down 100% by nature; our detergents even break down as much as 98% within some hours. In this way, waters are protected and creatures in the waters are not harmed by toxic substances.
FAIR: OUR ACTIONS SHOULD BE FOR THE GOOD OF ALL
Many of our resources are purchased from developing countries. We take care of giving support to small cooperatives and peasants. Directly at the Himalaya, in Shimla/India, we have our own soapnut production, where we employ up to 50 employees during the peak season and where we pay up to 30% higher wages.
HANDMADE: MORE HUMAN, LESS MACHINE
Wherever possible, we abstain from machine-made manufacturing, i.e. the more people use our products, the more jobs we create together. Handmade means produced with love, carefully compounded, carefully filled, labeled with joy and packed environmentally-friendly.
ENERGY: FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE END IN THE CIRCLE OF NATURE
In our production we use exclusively electricity that comes from hydropower. We are especially proud that also our litter, which accrues from the production of the detergents and cleaning agents, is further processed to biogas.
PROJECTS: FOR OUR FUTURE
Together with our distributors we support relief projects with 1% of the achieved sales. Smaller projects can be fixed with our distributors referring to their countries, but also international projects will be presented on our website starting in 2014, and will always be realized at Christmas time.
HEALTH: A CLEAR SENSE OF WELL-BEING
Due to our especially skin-friendly formulas, the biggest organ – which is our skin – is not irritated and skin allergies, which amongst others are caused by chemical products, are countered. Particularly for our children, our products represent a relief because they do not contain any toxic chemicals or other harmful substances. Animals are also protected, as we renounce animal experiments. The tests are carried out on human volunteers only.
VEGAN: CHERISHING LIFE
We do not use animal ingredients in any of our products because we respect and hold in high regard the life of all beings.
We only use natural essential oils. Our sense of smell is directly connected to our brain and with the help of herbal fragrances we can provide for high spirits and also do something good for our health.
