What is the Frosch approach to surfactants like Palm Oil and other tropical-based oils?
Frosch uses only plant-based surfactants. Unlike other brands, Frosch seeks to minimize the use of surfactants from tropical sources. When necessary, Frosch purchases only RSPO-certified Palm Kernel Oil. Tropical surfactant production has led to significant rain forest degradation in countries like Indonesia and also leads to a larger carbon footprint as raw materials have to travel long distances to production facilities.

What is the Frosch approach to bioplastics (like corn plastic)?
Frosch specifically avoids the use of vegetable-based packaging and prefers to use a large percentage of recycled material in their packaging (minimum of 80%) with a recyclability of 100%. Frosch believes that this approach is more environmentally friendly when viewed globally. Frosch is continually working to improve the sustainability and performance of its packaging.

Why does Frosch use colors and fragrances in their products?

Based on experience, Frosch finds that many consumers particularly love the scents that belong to our products and also enjoy the aesthetic and fun conveyed by the product colors. Frosch dyes and scents ingredients are very carefully selected by the lab team. They are either cosmetic-grade or food-grade and have excellent and proven skin sensitivity.

The pH-Neutral Universal Cleaner was the very first Frosch product. It is well known for its mildness and versatility. It can be used for everything from floor cleaning to surface cleaning to hand washing laundry. It is a true universal cleaner.
Which ingredients will Frosch never use?
- Phosphates: Phosphates are powerful and comparably low-priced components that are still used in many cleaning and detergent products. They generally boost product performance. Phosphates accelerate the growth of water plants (Eutrophication) which leads to a lack of oxygen in aquatic environments.
- Borates: Borates are used as a very cheap part of bleach systems that are used in fabric and machine dishwashing detergents. After the new EU Classification, borates are classified as T (poisonous) / R 60, R61 (can disturb the reproduction ability and may damage the child in the womb).
- Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde is a very efficient and cheap preservative that is still often used in many products. There are concerns about the long term health effects of Formaldehyde.
- NTA (Nitrolotriacetat): NTA is a component that improves the performance of cleaning agents and detergents. Its main task is to reduce the water hardness in order to improve cleaning performance. It is also used as a stabilizer. There are concerns about the long term health effects of NTA.
- EDTA (Ethylendiamintetraacetat): EDTA is a very cheap component with similar properties as NTA. EDTA biodegrades poorly and can remobilize heavy metals in waters.
- PVC: PVC is a cheap packaging material. When PVC is incinerated, toxic organic chlor compound, salt acid and other dangerous components are created.
