Common chemicals in laundry products can do untold damage to your lifestyle and health. Their adverse effects are known to be hormone-disrupting, carcinogenic, cause for respiratory problems, and promotion of drug-resistant bacteria strains, developmental toxicity, and even reproductive challenges. In essence, what we are trying to say is, when you choose contemporary living or convenience, you shouldn’t have to compromise. We believe in quality and consciousness at every step.
