Organic refers to ingredients of plant origin. Many of our ingredients are mineral based and hence cannot be classified organic. All our ingredients are natural and biodegradable. We prioritize sourcing our oils from local organic farmers who do not use pesticides and other chemicals or who practice sustainable agriculture. SInce they are small scale, they cannot afford certification.
Yes! All our products are vegan. We do not use any animal origin ingredients. We also do not test on animals.
Yes! We are a sustainable company and large scale Palm cultivation has proven to be unsustainable all over the world.
No! We do not use any anti-caking agents, fillers or synthetic preservatives because they are toxic for you, your home and the planet.
It is exactly what you see on the packaging. We believe in 100% transparency and list everything we put in the product.
Liquid products need to be packaged in plastic or glass bottles. Plastic is highly toxic and contrary to popular belief not easily recyclable either. Large glass bottles are too heavy & breakable and pose shipping challenges.
The instructions are on the box. You can mix it with water to create formulations ready to use.
We love this question. Liquid formulations require plastic packaging to make them economically viable and shippable. We truly believe that toxin-free products are only one half of the equation and plastic packaging is the other half. That’s why our formulations are in powder form and packaged in eco-friendly, biodegradable boxes.
Out of all the materials that end up in our recycling bins, plastic is probably the most difficult to recycle. This is because plastics are composed of several different polymer types and are impossible to recycle together. It is estimated that less than 10% of plastic that is manufactured is actually recycled. Also, the recycled plastic cannot be used by itself. It needs to be mixed with virgin plastic to create a product. That means we have to create as much plastic as we recycle thereby increasing toxic waste on our planet. The only answer to the huge plastic problem is to avoid plastics as much as possible and move to sustainable materials for packaging and daily use products.
100% recyclable. We do not use any plastic or polyurethane (PU) coating. Even the ink on our boxes is earth friendly.
No, the dishwash powder is meant only for hand-washing of utensils. It's especially effective for cleaning heavily soiled, greasy pots and pans.
The term “fragrance” encapsulates a huge amount of undisclosed components. They contain toxins that are hormone disruptors and severe allergens. Synthetic fragrances that make us and our surroundings smell good for long periods of time, comes at a cost. The cost is the harm to our health due to undisclosed toxins and unregulated chemicals in them. That’s why at Madras Soapery, we will never use fragrance as an ingredient and are committed to disclosing 100% of our ingredients. We use only therapeutic grade essential oils in concentrations that are not only safe but also have aromatherapy benefits. Natural essential oils fade naturally since they aren’t polymerised and encapsulated in toxins.
Sometimes our powder formulations clump slightly in the packaging, this is because of its hygroscopic nature and our decision to not use toxic anti-caking agents for aesthetic benefit. The marginal clumping can be sorted by just giving it a stir with a fork and transferring to an airtight container.
Transfer it to an airtight container to avoid clumping caused by moisture in the air.
