It would be grossly misleading to claim that any products where ‘chemical free’. There is simply no such thing. Everything on earth is 100% chemical. The Granny Smith Apple we eat, the air and water in our environment, even our human body is composed entirely of chemicals. ‘Chemical’ has become a term of fear due to misleading advertising. However, it need not be – instead we need to understand the difference between safe and harmful chemicals.
Ingredient lists for our products are available on our website and on our product information sheets. All personal care products also contain ingredient lists on the packaging. This ensures that our customers are provided with the knowledge to make accurate and informed choices for themselves and their families.
All the herbal extracts and many of the naturally derived materials we use have their own distinctive and often not very pleasant smell. Most of them are certainly not attractive enough to satisfy the consumer’s requirements for a pleasant aroma. We, therefore, add essential oil blends or essential oil-based fragrances to our products so that a commercially acceptable result is obtained.
Our essential oil-based fragrances contain essential oils blended with components, isolated from essential oils, and nature identical oils. These are professionally blended to achieve the desired fragrance. The creation of our fragrance blends is done either in our own laboratories or by specialist perfumeries.
All fragrances used by Tri Nature are phthalate-free.
No. SLS stands for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. It is a surfactant ingredient commonly used in detergent and personal care products throughout the world. It is an ingredient that can be created from coconut or palm oil, or from petrochemical sources. We do not use SLS in any of our products – our only reasoning for this is that there are more modern, gentle, higher-quality alternatives available. There have been many unfounded and incorrect statements made about the ‘side effects’ of this ingredient.
No. Tri Nature does not use paraben preservatives in any of our products.
No. Tri Nature does not test its products on animals and is accredited with the Choose Cruelty Free (CCF) organisation.
All of Tri Nature’s products are vegetarian and vegan friendly.
No. The premium quality ingredients and essential oils used in the Tri Nature products are gentle, high purity and naturally derived and many of them are from certified organic sources.
Tri Nature does not directly use any palm oil in our products but we do use small amounts of emulsifiers and emollient ingredients that may be derived from palm oil. Whilst we make every effort to use alternative ingredients it is very difficult to formulate some product types (e.g. creams and lotions) without any palm derivatives. We have reduced the amount of these palm oil derivatives as much as we can and any palm oil derived materials we do use are sourced from environmentally conscious suppliers that are members of the Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO).
Yes, when used as instructed. We consider that all waters containing Tri Nature products at normal, prudent levels are safe for use on gardens and lawns. Tri Nature products do not contain any toxins or compounds that could affect the health of the soil. We do however recommend that the pH of the soil be monitored if using grey water frequently.
Tri Nature products are readily biodegradable and compatible with both septic and bio-cycle systems when used in moderation and as instructed.
Yes. All of the packaging we use is fully recyclable. We label our products with recycling messages to encourage our customers to recycle packaging correctly.
Excel should not be used on slate or other reactive stone. The gentlest product to use is Chamomile Dishwashing Liquid, which can be diluted at 4ml of Chamomile dishwashing liquid in a regular household bucket.
Yes. You can use the Optimate Floor Cleaner on any hard, sealed surface as directed, such as laminate, floorboards, concrete, or stone.
We recommend the use of Chamomile Dishwashing Liquid diluted in water for cleaning surfaces that require a neutral cleaner. It can be diluted at 4ml of Chamomile dishwashing liquid in a regular household bucket.
Tri Nature has researched the field of optical brighteners exhaustively and found no basis for any suspicion that the use of our chosen brightening agents can cause any detrimental effects. Our optical brighteners are classified as non-toxic to animals and to the environment. They are biodegradable and because of their efficiency are used at only very small levels. The argument of some seems to revolve around their non-essential or cosmetic nature. The fact is that a product that does not display the brightness and whiteness characteristics that optical brighteners give is much less acceptable to consumers, no matter how efficiently they clean or how ‘environmentally responsible’ they purport to be.
This is another internet myth. Optical brighteners are used in very small amounts and have absolutely no effect on the absorbency of any fabric. However, for customers who still may not wish to use optical brighteners, we recommend Alpha Plus Pre Wash Soak and Alpha Plus Gentle Wash as these products do not contain optical brighteners.
YES. The dilution ratio is 20-25 parts water: 1 part sphagnum moss. The tools should be soaked for a minimum of 10-15 minutes to ensure complete sanitising.

In personal care products and cosmetics, the statement ‘alcohol-free’ as seen on the antiperspirants refers to the fact that the product contains no ethanol (or ethyl alcohol). Ethanol, commonly known as alcohol is the type of alcohol that is found in alcoholic beverages and some people wish to avoid it as they believe that it may be drying to the skin. Although sharing a similar name, fatty alcohols such as Cetyl Alcohol are a different group of ingredients derived from oils that help to moisturise the skin.

Our other products do contain small amounts of essential oils for fragrance but these levels are considered safe.

Tri Nature products (including our laundry powders) are not to be repacked for resale. Our bulk size packs are available for commercial users, large volume users and to refill Tri Nature containers only. The reasoning behind the decision to only sell our products in our original packaging is to protect our product quality, ensure that there is no contamination of our product before it reaches the customer and also ensure that all products are stored in appropriate containers with the correct label. We offer our laundry powder in a variety of sizes so that customers have the option of purchasing a size that suits their needs.
