The cleaning products you use at home are also making you fall ill and making the indoor air quality in your home poor and damaging our environment and contaminating our water supplies. Switch to a greener alternative.
Hospitals and cleanrooms need 100% sterile, germ-free environments for effective functioning and this is why they need regular disinfecting. But the same is not true for our homes.
Our endocrine systems ensure that our bodies self-regulate by releasing hormones essential for metabolism, growth and development and tissue function, among other things. But the chemical-based cleaners we use at home are not just harming our environment at home, they are also endangering our endocrine systems, affecting our health on many levels.
Most food we consume nowadays is contaminated in some way or another. Not just processed foods, but even fresh produce. And one of the major contributors to this chemical contamination are the cleaning agents we use at home.
Keeping washrooms odour-free is one of the biggest challenges at offices everywhere. Using air fresheners is not the solution because they don’t address the root cause. The solution is our OB Care range of products.

Many household cleaning products – not limited to floor and bathroom cleaners alone – are loaded with combinations of harmful chemicals with proven ill-effects on human and animal health and also the environment. Here are the most harmful ones you need to watch out for.
Superbugs and drug-resistant bacteria are one of the biggest threats to human health across the world right now.

The very products we use to clean our homes are causing us harm. Household cleaners expose us to 62 chemicals everyday, affecting health and also our environment. Cleaning should be about balance, not hyper-sanitation that kills off all bacteria, including the ones that are good for us.
A moment of thought is all you need to realize we live in a world of hyper-sanitation at the cost of hampering our ecological balance. Inspect and examine what goes into your cleaning products for effective cleaning that does not negatively impact health or environment.
