Be A ZeroHero

We take pride in calling ourselves the ZeroHeroTM

As much as cleaning matters, how you clean matters!

Hence each ingredient going into our products are verified to make sure they have no harmful impact on the environment, humans and animals alike. We ensure that the cleaning ingredients are safe. We believe its important to choose ingredients which are powerful in smaller dosages, and product efficacy is achieved with minimum ingredients. Hence, we believe it is important to combine what nature and science have to offer. Many labs around the world are working hard to create clean ingredients and we believe in leveraging this opportunity. We do not use any artificial colour or fragrance in our products. Our products are infused with essential oils to combine cleaning with the properties of the oils. Various blends lend their cleaning, healing, disinfecting and aromatic properties to the base product.

Zero Sulphates, Zero Phosphates, Zero Bleach, Zero Artificial Colour, Zero Artificial Fragrance, Zero Harmful Acids, Zero animal testing…..… and the list goes on. Come join us and be a ZeroHeroTM.

Used In

  • Dishwashing detergent

Harm to body

  • Can produce skin irritation or burns

Harm to the environment

  • Highly toxic and lethal to fish
