What is in Koparo’s non-toxic cleaning products?

Posted by Kopraan Store on


At Koparo, we want to harness the power of nature's most powerful cleaners and combine it with the years of scientific research in the field of cleaning to give you an incredibly clean home that is also toxin-free. Our mission is 100% clean, 100% safe.

It has been scientifically proven that organic cleaners can get the job done just as well as chemical ones, and without any harmful side-effects. We’ve identified the chemicals that really do not need to be in our cleaners and swapped them for safer, naturally derived cleaning superpower ingredients. 

Here is a list of what we’re saying no to and what we’ve used in their place.

  • Petroleum-based cleaners: Most cleaning products are petroleum-based. They contain hydrocarbons that can wreak havoc in your homes. They are known to damage the lungs, and can also cause coma, seizures, irregular heart rhythms or damage to the kidneys or liver. 

    Instead of these, we use lauryl glucoside and decyl glucoside, which are surfactants made from coconut and sugarcane. Why? Because they are biodegradable and one of the best foaming agents. Added bonus: they’re dermatologically friendly, i.e., they won’t cause skin irritations at all.
  • Chemical preservatives and parabens: These ingredients have been labelled as potential endocrine and hormone disruptors, and compounds that release formaldehyde, a human carcinogen. 

    We prefer to use naturally occurring preservatives such as citric acid for our products and are proud to say they have 0% parabens.
  • VOCs: Volatile Organic Compounds, a major component of synthetic cleaners end up causing headaches and migraines, apart from severe long term effects.

They contain toxins that can be

    • carcinogenic
    • cause itchy skin
    • eye irritation
    • rashes and allergies.
Our products are 100% VOC-free and safe for pregnant women, pets and babies.
  • Triclosan: This common cleaning ingredient harms aquatic life, causes anti-microbial resistance over prolonged use and has been banned by the FDA in hand wash soaps in the US. 

    We’ve ensured our hand wash has 0% triclosan.
  • Ammonia: A popular cleaning agent, ammonia can cause eye and nose irritation, and if ingested, it leads to more serious damage. Further, it pollutes our water and air. 

    That’s why Koparo products have 0% ammonia. We use alcohol ethoxylates derived from coconut oil in our all-purpose cleaners as a great substitute for ammonia.
  • Phthalates: Certain chemicals within the phthalate group are known to be endocrine hormone disruptors and have been linked to digestive health problems.

    To avoid this exposure, we guarantee 0% phthalates in our cleaners.
  • Synthetic dyes: The toxic chemicals used in synthetic dyes have various short- and long-term harmful effects, like skin allergies, cancer and damage to the nervous system.

    We don’t believe in going for bright colours at the risk of our customers’ safety. Our products do not have any synthetic colouring at all. 
  • EDTA: It is used as a water softener in detergents, can cause serious reproductive defects in humans. 

    To make sure our products are safe for you and your family, our cleaners have 0% EDTA.

Basically, based on requirements of specific cleaners, we have used other superpower cleansing agents which are naturally derived. To know just how seriously we take our mission, you can always look up the ingredient list for each of our products.
