Clean ingredients

At Plastno, each ingredient is meticulously tested by our team before being selected for our cleaning products. If the ingredient doesn't meet our criteria, we do not use it. We use an evaluation scale that takes into account the risks to the planet and to humans.

Good for humans

We only use ingredients that have a low risk of cancer, reduce the risk of developing allergies and reduce the risk to the reproductive system.

Good for the planet

Our ingredients are from natural, renewable sources, which break down naturally into organic matter with low risk to our ecosystems.

Ingredient sources

We use natural ingredients, from natural sources and artificial sources.

Natural ingredients: A category of ingredients that group together water, minerals and agricultural ingredients.

Naturally sourced: Ingredients of natural origin distinguish all ingredients that have NOT been obtained using petroleum. These are natural ingredients that underwent a physical transformation as well as natural ingredients that have been chemically extracted or treated following the guidelines of Green Chemistry. This means, ingredients that required a chemical reaction between multiple natural elements in order to create the final product.

Artificially ingredients: These ingredients are synthesized in a lab. The actual chemicals in natural or artificial ingredients may be exactly the same: the chemical structures of the individual molecules may be indistinguishable.

What's difference between natural and synthetic?

"Derived from a natural source" refers to a compound that has been derived from a natural raw material, such as a plant, mineral or animal. For example, an ingredient is said to be "naturally sourced" when the extraction involves a transformation of the plant to simply keep certain active compounds. These types of ingredients are not synthetic, which means that they are not man-made.

A "synthetic" ingredient is a man-made or chemically modified ingredient. It is not derived from a natural source, i.e., it is artificially manufactured or produced, rather than being naturally occurring. These ingredients can often be non-toxic and safer than some natural products.

Taking out the trash in a Plastno compostable trash bag
