CleanCult: Organic Cleaning Products

Last updated:

Who doesn’t love the idea of organic cleaning products?

Natural ingredients that clean your home and don’t destroy the environment – or your health. While it’s a romantic idea, the unfortunate truth is that most organic cleaning products really can’t compete with conventional products.  That was our experience for the better part of the last decade.  We tried upwards of 20 different brands but never felt that they did the job 100%.

The truth was that they just didn’t clean as well as harsh chemicals. Or so I thought.

CleanCult hopes to change the way we look at organic cleaning products by using sustainable, eco-friendly ingredients that actually work.

Who is CleanCult?

Cleancult

 

 

CleanCult offers organic cleaning products with coconut-based ingredients. The environmentally-conscious company uses a sustainable design with zero-waste packaging. These are cleaning products that you can feel good about using.

Along with coconut-based ingredients, CleanCult also harnesses the power of other biodegradable elements that are tough on dirt and grime while being gentle on the environment and your skin.

Eco-Friendly Packaging

Most cleaning products come in plastic bottles that wind up polluting our oceans or sitting landfills.

CleanCult aims to change this, too. Your first shipment arrives in glass bottles, and refills are delivered to your doorstep in eco-friendly packaging, such as milk cartons.

Their eco-friendly approach to packaging reduces their plastic waste to virtually nothing.

Carbon Neutral Approach

Along with their eco-friendly packaging approach, CleanCult also uses sustainable shipping methods. They’ve partnered with carbonfund.org to remain as carbon-neutral as possible.

Here’s how it works:

  • The people are carbonfund.org review their shipping data to assess their carbon footprint.
  • CleanCult invests in carbon reduction projects.
  • With the help of environmental agencies, CleanCult plants trees that undo shipping carbon.

The Science Behind CleanCult

CleanCult’s products are coconut oil based, which has natural antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. This topical oil also tackles grime and grease just as well as conventional products.

How does coconut oil get turned into soap?

Saponification.

All of the coconuts go through the process of what’s called saponification, which essentially means that it gets turned into soap. This transformation occurs when coconut oil is mixed with a special base, like sodium hydroxide. The chemical reaction creates coconut soap.

The main ingredient used in CleanCult products include:

  • Saponified Coconut Oil
  • Saponified Olive Oil
  • Sodium Citrate: Salt from citric acid; used to control the product’s pH
  • Citric Acid: Derived from the juice of citrus plants; tough on bacteria, mold and mildew
  • Sodium Gluconate: Mineral-based ingredient that eliminates stains, dirt and grime
  • Essential Oil Blend: Adds a fresh scent
  • Potassium Soap: Activates the cleaning power of the saponified oils
