FAQs

Conventional cleaning products are filled with chemicals that are largely not tested for safety on humans or the environment, and are not required to be disclosed to the public.
 
Prolonged exposure can disrupt hormones, interrupt child development, cause respiratory issues and allergies, and are linked with cancer.
 
Furthermore, many of these chemicals run off, untreated, into Kenya’s beautiful ecosystem, impacting wildlife and vegetation.
 
Read our brief on the reasons to clean with nontoxic products here.
 
For further reading: 
At Grounded, nontoxic means only using verified, safe ingredients in your home cleaning products. We don’t use any ingredients that are harmful to humans and the environment. Our products are held to the standards maintained by the Environmental Working Group and MADESAFE
 
This means no parabens, no chemical antibacterials (like triclosan), no artificial fragrance (like phthalates), and no synthetic foaming agents/sulfates (like SLS/SLES).
 
Grounded products are either soap- or vinegar-based with added essential oils and good vibes. We disclose 100% of our ingredients on our product labels.  
 
Our products conform to much higher global standards for personal care items — we believe what you put on your dishes and clothes should be as safe as what you put on your body.
 
But, remember, conventional cleaning products are not required to disclose their ingredients, which means it can be difficult to know everything that is included in them.
  • Additionally, we have recyclable packaging, a low carbon footprint, and value creation throughout the East African supply chain — we proudly source from other Kenyan businesses wherever possible.

  • 1) Remove dirt, germs and viruses with soap, like our Spray Deep.
  • 2) Disinfect to kill remaining viruses, bacteria, and mold with our HOCl based Instant Disinfectant that kills germs in seconds!

However, you may notice some differences when switching from conventional cleaning products to non-toxic products. We often hear feedback that the laundry powder doesn’t foam enough, or smell enough. Instant foam and long-lasting scent are hallmarks of chemical agents, tricking us into thinking things are more clean when they’re actually just more harmful.

We care deeply about customer satisfaction, and provide simple user guides to ensure all products are being used properly to attain your desired level of clean.

Grounded manufactures nontoxic cleaning products like all-natural liquid Castile and solid soaps.

Soap was first recorded as far back as 2800 BC! Yet most detergents and liquid “soaps” today aren’t actually soap at all, but are a combination of chemicals and foaming agents!

Grounded’s soap superstars

  • Pure Soap Concentrate – A Kenyan Castile soap made from coconut, sunflower, and canola oils. Our all purpose superstar.
  • Spray Deep – Our soapy spray powerhouse. Powered by our coconut-sunflower-canola liquid soap, and enhanced with baking soda and essential oils for extra grime fighting power.
  • Foaming Hands - Natural foaming hand soap and dispenser. Make sure to wash for 20 seconds!
  • Body Bar - All natural solid body bar. Even works on hair!
  • Our old disinfectant was powered by hydrogen peroxide
  • Instant disinfectant powered by HOCL
  • HOCl is produced by our body and is used by our immune system. When the immune system is compromised, the body detects the compromised location and sends white blood cells through the body to fight the invading pathogens. The white blood cells attack, surround (or eat), and destroy (digest) the pathogen using a process that creates Hypochlorous Acid as an end product.
