ainesosat

läpinäkyvyys

uskomme aitouteen ja haluamme antaa ihmisille parhaat mahdolliset tiedot kulutuspäätösten tekemiseksi. siksi luettelemme tuotteidemme kaikki ainesosat ja kerromme niiden valmistusprosesseista. kerromme myös avoimesti methodin arvoista ja toimintatavoista.

materiaalien arviointi

jokaisen methodin tuotteissa käytetyn raaka-aineen arvioi perusteellisesti riippumaton ympäristötutkimuslaitos, MBDC. tarkan arviointiprosessin ansiosta voimme olla täysin varmoja, että kaikki method-tuotteet ovat turvallisia ihmisille ja ympäristölle.

sertifikaatit

kaikki keskeiset tuotteemme ovat Cradle to Cradle (kehdosta kehtoon) -sertifioituja, yli 75 % kultatasolla. Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Instituten tutkijat ovat selvittäneet tarkasti tuotteidemme raaka-aineet, pakkausmateriaalit, suunnittelun ja valmistusprossin ja varmistaneet, että käytetyt materiaalit ovat maksimaalisesti uudelleen hyödynnettävissä.

raaka-aineet

meille ei riitä pelkkä komea ulkonäkö. arvostamme myös sisäistä kauneutta. lue lisää siitä, mitä methodin pullot sisältävät.

tuotteiden koostumus

noudatamme varovaisuusperiaatetta: jos on pienikin mahdollisuus, ettei jokin ainesosa ole turvallinen, emme käytä sitä. piste.

turvallisuusvarmistus

noudatamme tuotteissamme varovaisuusperiaatetta. jos on olemassa mahdollisuus, ettei jokin ainesosa ole turvallinen, emme käytä sitä.

likaisten ainesosien luettelo

method ei ikinä käytä tuotteissaan likaisia, perinteisten puhdistusaineiden tehoaineita, kuten fosfaatteja tai valkaisuainetta.

ulkopuolinen arviointi

riippumaton tutkimuslaitos arvioi tarkasti kaikkien methodin käyttämien aineiden turvallisuuden ihmisille ja ympäristölle.

kehdosta kehtoon

suunnittelemme tuotteistamme turvallisia ja ekologisia ohjenuoranamme pidämme Cradle to Cradle® -periaatetta.

huipputiedettä

hyödynnämme huipputason vihreän kemian teknologiaa, jotta tuotteemme olisivat sekä tehokkaita että turvallisia.

ulkoinen validointi

method on maailman ensimmäinen Cradle to Cradle® -sertifioitu puhdistusaineiden sarja. sertifikaatti kertoo vastuullisesta valmistuksesta, ympäristöystävällisestä pakkaussuunnittelusta sekä turvallisista ja tehokkaista tuotteista.

likaisten ainesosien luettelo

emme harrasta likaisia puuhia. tähän on lueteltu tehoaineita, joita emme ikinä käytä (ja miksi emme).

tulossa…

tuoksut

upeat, miellyttävät tuoksut ovat ylpeydenaiheemme. ne sopivat herkkänenäisillekin.

hyväksi ihmiselle, hyväksi ympäristölle

maailmassa, jossa puhdistusaineet tuoksuvat parhaimmillaan mitäänsanomattomilta ja pahimmillaan kuvottavilta, meille on kunnia-asia valmistaa hyväntuoksuisia tuotteita. satsaamme paljon sellaisten tuoksujen kehittämiseen, jotka eivät vaaranna ihmisten sen enempää kuin ympäristönkään hyvinvointia.

likaisten tuoksuaineiden luettelo

pidämme yllä luetteloa haitallisista ainesosista, joita käytetään yleisesti perinteisissä hajusteissa. näihin kuuluvat esimerkiksi ftalaatit. luettelon aineita ei ikinä käytetä methodin tuoksuissa.

materiaalien turvallisuusarviointi

kaikki methodin tuoksuissa käytetyt ainesosat käyvät läpi perusteellisen, mm. toksikologisen arvioinnin.

lisäksi kaikki valmiit tuotteemme testataan iho-oireiden ja allergioiden varalta.

väriaineet

eloisat värit tekevät siivouksesta hauskempaa. käyttämämme väriaineet ovat turvallisia ihmisille ja ympäristölle.

eloisat värit

eloisat värit ovat yksi designimme kivijaloista. kestävän kulutuksen tulee olla kaunista, eläväistä ja houkuttelevaa, joten suunnittelemme tuotteemme sellaisiksi. käytämme turvallisia, ympäristöystävällisiä väriaineita, jotka tehoavat pieninäkin pitoisuuksina, ovat myrkyttömiä eivätkä kuormita ympäristöä.

vastuulliset väriaineet

käytämme vain väriaineita, jotka ovat turvallisia ihmisille ja ympäristölle. osa valmistetaan luonnonmateriaaleista, mutta tehokkaimmista suurin osa on synteettisiä. kummassakin tapauksessa suoritamme ainesosille yksityiskohtaiset terveys- ja ympäristöarvioinnit tiiviissä yhteistyössä toimittajiemme kanssa.

säilöntäaineet

tehokkaita, turvallisia, biohajoavia. käytämme säilöntäaineita, jotta saisit aina parhaan siivoustuloksen.

tehokasta

methodin puhdistusaineet on tehty pääosin luonnonperäisistä raaka-aineista. tehokkaat säilöntäaineet estävät niitä pilaantumasta ja säilyttävät niiden puhdistustehon sekä turvallisuuden pitkiä aikoja. valitsemalla tehokkaita säilöntäaineita voimme säilyttää niiden pitoisuuden minimissä (useimmissa tuotteissamme alle 0,1 %).

perusteellinen arviointi

kaikki method-tuotteissa käytetyt säilöntäaineet ovat käyneet läpi McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) -tutkimusyhtiön perusteellisen arvioinnin, jotta tiedämme täsmälleen niiden vaikutuksen ihmisten ja ympäristön hyvinvointiin. MBDC varmistaa, että tuotteemme ovat täysin myrkyttömiä ja biohajoavia.

biohajoavaa

kaikki keskeiset tuotteemme ovat Cradle to Cradle (kehdosta kehtoon) -sertifioituja. yli 75 % tuotevalikoimastamme on sertifioitu kultatasolle, loput tuotteet hopeatasolle.
