Organic awareness

Ecomaat are proud to produce products derived from only organic ingredients and that conform to strict USDA guidelines with a minimum of 95%, nearly all achieving 100% and are thus certified for their organic credentials, products and premium qualities.

 

We are constantly asked what differentiates our products; the answer is very simple, no chemicals are used - only the finest raw organic seeds, organic farming methods and harvesting processes. No GMO's or animal testing are employed in production simply pure ethical products. 

 

None of the below have ever been / nor ever will be used or found in our products.

 

For your reference we have compiled a list of chemicals (whilst extensive it is by no means finite) to help guide and enable you to evaluate products that you are considering, so you can make your own qualified judgement and understand the real ingredients. 

 

Please note that chemical names can often be changed/altered to meet regulatory body designations.

Crystalline Silica

Diaminophenol

Diethanolamine (DEA)

Doictyl Adipate

Disperse Blue 1, Disperse Yellow 3 (clourants)

Fluoride

Formaldehyde

Glutaral

Hydroquinone

Methylene Chloride

Methylisothiazolinone and Methylchloroisothiazolinone

Nitrophenylenediamine

p-Phenylenediamine (following oxidation)

Phenyl-p-phenylenediamine

Saccharin

Contaminants

These are hidden carcinogens contaminating other chemicals such as dioxane, a highly potent carcinogen.

1,4-Dioxane. In Ethoxylated Alcohols, including PEGs, Oleths, Polysorbates, Nonoxynol.

Arsenic and Lead. In Coal Tar Dyes, Polyvinyl Acetate, PEGs (polyethylene glycols).

DDT and related Pesticides. In Lanolin, Quarterniums.
Diethanolamine (DEA). In DEA Cocamide/ Lauramide condensates, Quaterniums.
Ethylene Oxide. In Ethoxylated Alcohols, including PEGs, Oleths, Polysorbates, Nonoxynol.
Formaldehyde. In Polyoxymethylene Urea.

Nitrosamine Precursors

Nitrosamines are highly carcinogenic. Nitrosamine precursors interact with other chemicals in the product to form nitrosamines.

Bromonitrodioxane

2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol

Diethanolamine (DEA)

DEA-Cocamide, Lauramide and Oleamide condensates

DEA-MEA/Acetate

DEA-Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

Metheneamine

Morpholine

Padimate-O

Pyroglumatic Acid

Triethanolamine (TEA)

TEA-Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

Formaldehyde Precursors

Formaldehyde is highly toxic, neurotoxic, genotoxic and carcinogenic. Formaldehyde precursors react with other chemicals in the product to release formaldehyde (used to preserve dead bodies).

2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,2-Diol

Diazolidonyl Urea

DMDM-Hydantoin

Imidazolidinyl Urea

Metheneamine

Quaternium-15

Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate

Endocrine (Hormonal) Disruptors

Parabens (methyl / ethyl / propyl / butyl also known as hydroxy methyl benzoates)

Separate university studies have shown that parabens are absorbed into the blood-stream and disrupt the hormonal system. They may be associated with breast cancer.

Benzophenone

Butyl Benzyl Phthalate

Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA)

Butylmethoxydibenzoylmethane (B-MDM)

Dibutyl Phthalate

Diethyl Phthalate

Homosalate (HMS)

Methyl-benzylidene Camphor (4-MDC)

Octyl-dimethyl-PABA (OD-PABA)

Octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC)

Resorcinol
