Ingredient Standards
 

Norwex believes that every home should be a safe haven. That’s why we constantly strive to bring you the most effective household cleaning and personal care products while radically reducing the use of chemicals in your home.

  • Not only do our Norwex Microfibre products reduce chemicals used in cleaning, but our other household cleaning products do, too. These products contain ingredients derived from natural botanicals instead of harsh chemicals, and many attain their incredible cleaning power from enzyme-based formulas.
  • In addition, many of our skin care products are certified by such highly regarded agencies as Ecocert, EcoGruppo and NaTrue, which ensure that ingredients are derived from renewable resources and that products are manufactured using environmentally friendly processes. In fact, Norwex is proud to be one of the few companies in Australia or New Zealand to offer a complete line of Ecocert-certified products.

Product Certifications

Setting the standard for natural and organic cosmetics in Europe, Ecocert is an inspection and certification body established in France in 1991 by agronomists aware of the need to develop environmentally friendly agriculture and of the importance of offering some form of recognition to those committed to this method of production. Ecocert certifies that ingredients have been derived from renewable resources and that products have been manufactured using environmentally friendly processes. Ecocert-certified products are free from:

  • GMO Parabens
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Nanoparticles
  • Silicon
  • PEG
  • Synthetic perfumes and dyes
  • Animal-derived ingredients

For a product to be Ecocert-certified, a minimum of 95% of all plant-based ingredients in the formula and a minimum of 10% of all ingredients by weight must come from organic farming. Even the packaging must be biodegradable or recyclable. For complete Ecocert Greenlife standards, please visit http:/cosmetics.ecocert.com.
