What does organic mean?
A lot of people know that organic products are better for the environment and their own health but do they really know why? If asked 'what does organic mean' would most people be able to answer with certainty?
Our products are certified organic
Many products can call themselves organic but that does not mean that they are 100% organic. In fact, very few products are 100% as they usually contain water and often non-organic ingredients such as synthetic fragrance, which is a common skin and respiratory irritant.
At Greenscents all our products are certified by UK certifying body, The Soil Association, which means that our workshop is regularly inspected, all our ingredients are approved by them as well as what we put on our labels and in our marketing material. You will find that other products may be certified by another body such as Ecocert who do not have such stringent conditions.
The Soil Association checks that all our ingredients are organically cultivated by certified growers who do not use harmful pesticides or insecticides. GM ingredients are not allowed in organic products. Sustainable farming methods must be followed.
More than 70% organic ingredients
We use pure water from Exmoor but in the smallest proportions possible. This means that all our products are highly concentrated. We use premium ingredients and only organic essential oils for fragrance. We also offer a fragrance-free range for sensitive skin.
All our products contain at least 70% organic ingredients - you can see the percentages on our product pages.

I have atopic eczema and have been suffering a flare since February. I have tried numerous cleaning products that claim to be sensitive skin friendly, including the simplest of cleaning hacks, such as vinegar, however all have left me with sore, rash-y skin, other than Greenscents! I am delighted. Thank you so much for producing this fabulous product that has left my home gleaming and my skin happy!Grace R,
