Are Plant-Based Cleaning Products Effective?

New, environmentally friendly, and natural cleaning products are being manufactured and distributed throughout the nation. The most sustainable and safest are plant-based cleaners. Today we’re going to talk all about plant-based cleaners, how efficient and safe they are, and why you should go plant-based with your cleaning products.


What’s the difference between chemical and plant-based cleaners?

Cleaners mostly contain surfactants and detergents used to remove dirt and eliminate bacteria. Many may think the more chemicals in a cleaner, the more effective it will be to remove dirt and kill bacteria, but that’s not the case. Strong chemicals can compromise surfaces, cause irritations and allergies, and affect the environment, doing more harm than good, when a plant-based cleaner can do the same job with your health and the planet in mind.


How are Plant-based Cleaners Effective?

Plants have all sorts of natural substances that allow them to thrive in all kinds of environments and protect themselves from diseases, pests, bacteria, and viruses. Using plant derivatives helps guarantee a safe-yet-effective method of maintaining your household without compromising your family or the planet’s health, as they naturally biodegrade and they do not contain harsh chemicals. 


Cleanclean’s Effective Plant-based Cleaners

CleanClean uses non-toxic ingredients derived solely from plants to deliver a safe cleaning experience that is efficient and healthy. Here are some of the ingredients used in our effective plant-based cleaners along with their properties:


A super cleanser, and a primary ingredient in our products. Soapbark is a great detergent that has been used for centuries in South America. It has a balanced pH and foaming properties and is antibacterial, can be used to clean all surfaces effectively without irritating the skin or compromising the environment. You can read more about Soapbark on our page.

Grain Ethanol:

A common food-grade astringent that targets germs, bacteria, fungi, and viruses, rendering them ineffective without leaving a trace or residue.  

Coconut derivatives (Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate and Decyl Glucoside):

 Gentle surfactants that are suitable for sensitive skin yet have great detergence and foaming abilities. Used as cleaning boosters in our products to provide maximum efficiency without damaging the skin or surfaces.

Essential oils:

Essential oils can carry a vital part in plant-based cleaners, as they can add antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal traits to plant-based cleaners. Many essential oils have aromatherapeutic qualities and can help alleviate stress and enhance your mood.

Essential oils like clary sage, mandarin, and basil have antibacterial and/or antiviral properties that can help maintain your house’s cleanliness.
