The Soil Association is the only UK charity that works across the spectrum of human health, the environment and animal welfare. Its organic certification is widely regarded as the gold standard for all organic products and is very difficult to achieve. Certified products are made from organically farmed ingredients which are not genetically modified (GM) using no herbicides or synthetic fertilisers.

Allergy UK help those who suffer from allergies and chemical sensitivity. The ‘Allergy Friendly’ award means that the product may be of benefit to allergy sufferers and is unlikely to cause a reaction. Greenscents products are formulated to reduce allergens, especially for the skin.
Formaldehyde is a colourless fluid gas (used by undertakers!) which makes its way into many household products (as well as baby wipes, shampoos, makeup and toothpaste) under various names: urea, methanol, methylene oxide. Even a small amount can cause an allergic reaction, ranging from minor headaches to asthma, and from mild skin irritation to vomiting. This chemical has also been linked to cancer. Ventilation of your home is key to avoid toxic buildup, or of course boycotting such cleaning products altogether.
Like most good things, Greenscents began life at
the kitchen table as a family venture. The Hawkes
family suffered from skin allergies and an aversion to
synthetic perfumes, so very few household and laundry
options existed. Peter & Christina were convinced
that there was latent demand for a range of organic
laundry & household products and the Greenscents brand was developed in Autumn 2011. Sustainability, the environment and the wellbeing of people and animals are at the heart of everything Greenscents do.
