What does it mean that Marcel’s Green Soap is full of natural ingredients?

The difference between regular household cleaners is in the type of chemicals. For instance, we use vegetable, natural, biodegradable and safe chemicals unlike petrochemical and synthetic chemical substances. Each product by Marcel’s Green Soap contains no parabens, acids, ammonia, chlorine or coloring agents that are harmful to the environment, your house or your body.

Does Marcel’s Green Soap use animal testing during the production process?

No. We absolutely do not make use of animals to test our products. We also know that our suppliers do not use animal testing. In addition, our products are safe to use in the environment of animals.

 Are Marcel’s Green Soap products vegan?

 

The products are vegan, even the glycerin we use is plant-based.

 

Can you use Marcel’s Green Soap products on any surface?

 

Marcel’s Green Soap products composed in a way you can use them on natural stone, marble, wooden and hardwood floors. However, it is wise to try a small amount on a corner of the surface, because the products are still natural.

 

Why are Marcel’s Green Soap prices higher than those of regular household cleaners? 

The ingredient choices affect the price. For fresh scents, we make use of, among others, organic essential oils. Often, these oils are very valuable. Also, the palm oils we use originate from sustainable sources. These companies are RSPO registered. Finally, we are still a small company which makes procurement and producing often a bit more expensive. It might just be possible that the bottle you have at your home was packaged by Marcel himself, or one of his daughters.

Are Marcel’s Green Soap products biodegradable?

All products by Marcel’s Green Soap are 99% biodegradable. By biodegradable we mean that the whole product is able to degrade within 28 days under influence of CO2 and water. Marcel’s Green Soap products also contain salts. These are used for pH values, dissolving dirt and to thicken the product. Salts are never degradable in water and CO2, which explains the 99%.
 

How does Marcel’s Green Soap distinguish himself from other cleaning products?

Marcel personally strives to make his products live up to 3 promises:

Smells fantastic: All products have a unique perfume. Marcel has cooperated nearly for a year to develop unique and particular perfumes for the products. Scents you would normally never expect in a cleaning product, for example Basil & Vetiver or Patchouli & Cranberry. The products contain lovely scenting essential oils in combination with perfume. In other products, you might notice the perfume when opening the bottle, but the fragrance is gone by using. Marcel’s scents however keep lingering until long after you’ve stopped cleaning.

Cleans beautifully: Marcel has developed a great mix of natural soaps for all products. Nothing more, nothing less. This mix ensures that all fat and dirt are eliminated properly, without the use of all sorts of chemical additions.

Filled with natural ingredients: All ingredients in Marcel’s Green Soap are renewable and originate from nature. This is the reason our formula is 99% biodegradable and free of animal testing.

Are Marcel’s Green Soap products organic?

No, the products are filled with natural ingredients, but not all products we use have an organic certificate. However, we do use organic oils and our products are 99% biodegradable. 

What makes Marcel’s Green Soap natural?

All ingredients originate from nature and not from chemistry like regular cleaning products. I use vegetable, natural, biodegradable and safe ingredients. Marcel’s Green Soap contains no parabens, acids, ammonia, chlorine or coloring agents that are harmful to the environment, your house or your body. All products have a natural scent, like orange, basil and sandalwood. Furthermore, all Marcel’s Green Soap products contain organic oil. These are essential oils from plants cultivated in a organic manner. This makes our products smell even better!

 How does Marcel’s Green Soap distinguish himself from other eco-friendly cleaning products?

Marcel’s Green Soap is at least as environmentally responsible as other ecological cleaners in terms of composition and management. The difference is that Marcel’s Green Soap makes durable cleaning more cheerful and accessible for large groups of consumers. By using fun, eloquent packaging and a lovely scenting product that is effective in use.
This makes cleaning fun, for a change!

What are the future plans for Marcel’s Green Soap?

Firstly, I want to make sure that the 21 products I have introduced now are received enthusiastically by a lot of people. Afterwards, I want to join forces with these consumers to create new, ecological products that make you happy. So let me know what you think or send me a message if you have a great idea!

What is a surface active and what do anionic, non-ionic and amfoteric surface active mean? 

A surface active agent lowers the surface tension of water. Surface tension needs to be lowered in the cleaning process so the water can spread and dissolve the fat and dirt properly. There are different kinds of surface active agents:

Anionic surface active agents: These agents ionize (split in electrically loaded particles) in a solution, have excellent cleaning capabilities and in general do not foam a lot.
Non-ionic surface active agents: These agents foam a little and are generally used in washing products, dishwashing products and shine protection products. Because they do not ionize in solutions, and therefore have no electrical charge, they are resilient against water hardness and are excellent cleaners on most surfaces.
Amfoteric surface active agents: These agents are used in hygiene products and household cleaning products because of their mildness, foaming and stability.

Do you use palm and coconut substances?

Yes, we use both palm and coconut substances. Our suppliers of palm and coconut oil substances are all Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified durable palm oil suppliers. In this way, we support growing, durable palm and coconut oil products. RSPO is the only organization that actively works on durable palm oil products. Parties like WNF, Greenpeace and Oxfam Novib are also connected to this organization. Marcel’s Green Soap is happy to connect as well.
