Our Commitment to the Greenest Cleaners

Natural cleaning products

We all use cleaning products every day for dishes, laundry, general household maintenance, clothing, bedding and much more. Research has shown that many of the ingredients that are in these cleaners are having a decidedly negative impact on our environment and on us. We think that it’s only reasonable that you know what’s in them. Even in some “natural cleaning products”, there are ingredients that may be dubious at best and outright harmful at worst. As well, unfortunately, the current legislation in both Canada and the USA for declaring these ingredient lists hasn’t “kept up with the times”. In short, you’ve got to be extremely careful and be informed when selecting which cleaning products that you use. Below will list out all of the ingredients that will not be found in our cleaning products as part of our cleaning products requirements.

Ingredients We Don’t Allow in Cleaners

Banned

We are deeply concerned about potential issues related to and problems caused by phosphates, phthalates and other ingredients commonly found in conventional cleaning products. As a result, we have developed the following list of unacceptable ingredients for these items. Products with any of these ingredients are simply not available at ChelseMarket.ca.
