Where possible, Dominant strives to use readily biodegradable ingredients that minimise environmental impact. Dominant’s Research & Development team is constantly looking for ways to improve the biodegradability and safety of products by keeping abreast of new and innovative ingredients and methods.

However in some cases, due to Occupational Health & Safety regulations particularly in healthcare and food preparation, quaternary ammonium or chlorine based products must be used.

Environmentally responsible products can be identified through the following icons:

Earthcare® Environmental Research Program

Products showing this sign have been developed under this program and are equal to or exceed the world’s most stringent environmental standards. They contain no phosphates or formaldehyde and have rapid primary and ultimate biodegradability.

Garden Safe

The grey water from many of our laundry powders and personal care products are suitable for use on the garden. Our Garden Safe products have a moderate pH level, low salinity and are low or free of phosphates.

Septic Safe

For those located in a non sewered area, a large percentage of our products are suitable for use in conventional and aerate septic systems such as Envirocycle® and Biocycle®.
