The Bad Stuff

What the other guys don't want you to know

There are virtually no tests or transparency in traditional cleaning products.

It's no secret that many traditional cleaning products contain harmful chemicals. But what's even more concerning is the lack of transparency around what those ingredients are. This lack of transparency is a real problem, as it means we can't be sure of the safety of these products. And given that we use them on a daily basis, that's a lot of potential exposure to potentially harmful chemicals.

Sanz products are made with ingredients that are safe for you and your family, and they're often just as effective (if not more so) than traditional cleaners. Plus, our products are also more sustainable and better for the environment. Ditch those leading brands in favor of Sanz! Your family (and the planet) will thank you.

Harmful ingredients in conventional cleaning products


The production and use of dyes is both an environmental and human health problem. Many dyes found in detergents are banned from specific countries due to health concerns, so you should always keep an eye out for that!

Formaldehyde Releasers

Formaldehyde is a very toxic chemical that can even be lethal in high levels. It can cause irritation and have toxic carcinogenic effects. The easiest way to avoid them is to always carefully check the label!


Phthalates are endorcine disruptors that are mostly found amongst fragrances. They disrupt the hormones which are really essential so should be avoided at all cost. Carefully check the ingredients list and you will spot them if included!


1,4-dioxane is a know carcinogen and neurotoxin that is present when ethoxylated surfactants are used. While it is never listed on labels, it is not hard to spot it, just look for ingredients ending in "-eth" on the label!
