Yes. CYCLE is totally non-toxic and in fact all ingredients are completely biodegradable and natural.
The main ingredients are a mixture of recycled organic acids (mainly acetic acid aka vinegar) and recycled water. The other ingredients we use are citric acid, plant-based surfactant, bio-ethanol, food grade xanthan and a tiny bit of essential oils for the fresh fragrance.
Compared to conventional vinegar/plant-based cleaners as well as petro based products, our organic acids are derived from the fermentation of left-over biomass. In fact, even the water we use is recycled from within the biomass ensuring not a drop of fresh water is used in making our cleaners. We don't use fresh water and instead recycle treated water that is discharged from a water-treatment plant. We further purify the water using our unique distillation technology ensuring cloud level purity water in the end product.
The active ingredients of CYCLE are organic acids, which are made by microorganisms that love consuming biosolids, organic waste and leftovers. This means instead our little employees relieve the environment from waste and generate something useful from them.
While plant-based vinegar is made of crop (corn, sugarcane) that is essentially food diverted for use as feedstock for industrial purposes, our organic acids (majority of which is acetic acid aka vinegar) is made from biomass.
CYCLE bottles are made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic. That means there is a chance that you have already met with this material before.
The content of CYCLE is 100% recyclable, the same way as it was made. As it goes down the drain, it becomes organic waste which can be biologically fermented again and again. The bottles are made of recycled plastic and after use, they can be recycled into something else again. The weakest point is our spray head as it is not recycled or recyclable, so we encourage you to use it as long as possible with our refilling bottles.
In case you put them into the correct bin, they go to a recycling center where they get cleaned, shredded and revive as a completely different product.
Absolutely! None of the ingredients contain any animal product.
Yes. CYCLE is family-friendly, that includes all your loved ones.
Bathroom cleaner: Before use, turn the tip of the spray head to ON position. Apply directly to the surface without dilution, then wipe off. For foam, keep the mesh door closed, for fine mist open it up. After use, turn the tip of the spray head to OFF position.
All-purpose cleaner: Before use, turn the tip of the spray head to ON position. Apply directly to the surface without dilution, then wipe off. For foam, keep the mesh door closed, for fine mist open it up. After use, turn the tip of the spray head to OFF position.
Toilet cleaner: Before use, pull up the cap. Apply directly to the surface of your toilet bowl without dilution, then brush and flush. After use, close the cap.
In case you purchased a Refill kit, make sure you remove the aluminium cap and add the trigger head
Marble and copper may suffer some damage due to the natural properties of vinegar, so we recommend avoiding these surfaces.
TIP: NEVER mix bleach and vinegar as they form dangerous chlorine gas
Hell no! No animals were harmed during research or production.
Currently there is no ideal solution when it comes to packaging. The glass bottle is too heavy and fragile, thus has a huge impact on the environment when you want to transport it somewhere. Aluminium requires a tremendous amount of energy during recycling, PET brings new resources into the system and when they don’t get recycled, that’s just terrible. Our bottles are made of 100% recycled plastic, which means we use resources that are already in the system, and by giving them another round, they don’t end up on a landfill.
Currently it’s not possible, if you want to cut on packaging, please consider using our refill packs.
Due to the surfactant, the cleaners contain between 0,25% to 1,25% palm oil, but we carefully choose our source to come from a sustainable palm oil plantation.
