Our probiotic homecare range use a consortium of fermented bacteria strains from the Bacillus family.
They work by out-competing the harmful bacteria around your home, by taking their food source and breaking down their membranes. In a similar way they help break down oils, grease, proteins and organic matter on your surfaces. Unlike traditional cleaners that will stop working minutes after spraying, creating a vacuum for germs to start spreading again, our probiotic cleaners continue to protect you against harmful germs for hours, even days after you’ve finished spraying, creating a more natural and healthier microbiome around your home.
The strains that we use have been rigorously tested and are incapable of producing toxins, and do not survive the PH in our bodies if ingested.
A Bacillus bacteria probiotic cleaner with essential oil based fragrances. Contains < 5% cationic surfactants,< 5% non-ionic surfactants.
1 2-benzisothiazolin-3-one (preservative) used to ensure the stability and effectiveness of the product. This ingredient is classified as sensitising and is present at >0.04% in the concentrated formula and >0.004% once diluted to the recommend 10:1 ratio. This is well below the concentration at which studies found it to be at risk of sensitising. Chosen due to its effectiveness at very low concentrations, allowing us to ship our products 10x concentrated and therefore reducing packaging and transport emissions.
Alcohol Ethoxylate (non-ionic surfactants). Needed to "pull" dirt away from surfaces. It is effective and its simple chemistry requires less energy to make and makes it highly biodegradable.
Disodium cocoamphodipropionate (ionic surfactants). Needed to "pull" dirt away from surfaces. A soft and mild cleansing agent with foaming properties.
