Eco Clean products are biodegradable and free of petro-chemicals:

The Eco Clean Collection reflects this greener scheme of things and adheres to the need of perfecting homes with safe and eco-conscious cleaning products. Eco Clean is an indigenous Denmark cleaning product range made from pure, local Danish ingredients available at a shockingly reasonable price. Made from Danish sugar beets, Eco Clean is a sustainable, renewable, readily biodegradable resource that comes from farms on the island of Falster.

When looking through the ingredients list on the hand soap, I don't exactly believe the above quote, as sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) is the second ingredient after water. SLS is often considered a natural ingredient, as it is derived from coconut, but it is still a concerning ingredient. Furthermore, I don't believe that coconuts grow in Denmark. The hand soap also contains chemical colorants like CI 74160 and CI 16255.

I have to disagree that SLES is allergen-free, as my own son gets eczema from it. Lot of "natural" companies use it, but I am not sure why Eco Clean uses chemical colorants.


Eco Clean's name may imply they are completely green, and I am thankful they disclose their ingredients; however, just examining the hand soap alone causes concern. The cleaners may be more natural, but I can't help but feel cautious with this line.

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
