Green by Lithofin - for more sustainability
Sustainability and environmental protection are more than ever relevant to our society. Especially as a medium-sized family business, we are taking our part here very seriously. We have made it our business to integrate this into our daily work. Especially as a chemical company, we deal with the protection of people, the environment and nature on a daily basis. The result is our new product line Green by Lithofin.
"Do you have detergents that are vegan?" When this question reached us almost two years ago, we first looked at each other very surprised. This was new territory for us - because our cleaners are designed not only for cleaning homes and private areas, but also as special cleaners for stonemasons, tilers and other professional fields of application. The focus here is on efficiency, effectiveness and short drying times, especially in the field of professional use.
It was precisely this question that motivated us to define the parameters and develop our "Green by Lithofin" product line in a project team consisting of laboratory and product development. Four everyday home products, such as a basic cleaner, a sanitary cleaner, an all-purpose cleaner and a floor wipe care product, were to be developed. Natural. Plant-based. Vegan.
For all our Lithofin products, we focus on bottling concentrates whenever possible to reduce resources for packaging and transport. All containers are recyclable and labels are printed on FSC-certified paper. Of course, we use VOC values as a guideline and, of course, every impregnation we recommend for the kitchen area has been tested and certified for its safety. All Lithofin products are non-animal tested and are water-based where possible. But no one has ever focused explicitly on plant-based or even vegan ingredients.
We decided to go one step further in this regard. We wanted "green" products - both inside and outside. So we started a country-wide search for a manufacturer of recycled containers. Our goal was to use not only recyclable containers, but 100% recycled plastic. Plastic only belongs in the packaging: the cleaners are guaranteed microplastic-free. Our products are bright, colourful and smell great. We have selected the raw materials based on the criteria of the Eco-Cert label. We use surfactants from European production and avoid allergenic ingredients.
"Do you have detergents that are vegan?" Today, with the "Green by Lithofin" line, we can answer this question to our customers with absolute certainty with a „YES“ . The products are developed for use in households and will be available in stores from summer 2021.
