If you’re like most of us, you’ve spent countless years using conventional cleaning products that promise to cut grease, brighten grout, leave your countertops free of germs, and get your kitchen floors so clean, they sparkle. But if, like many of us, you’ve also noticed that cleaning with conventional products means opening the windows so the fumes don’t irritate your lungs or give you a headache, or your skin becomes inflamed unless you wear rubber gloves to clean, we have good news: Natural cleaning products can clean just as well as those conventional cleaning products, without all the irritation. Really! Here’s why you should use natural cleaning products–and where to find the best ones on the market. 


Natural cleaning products are easier on your skin (and eyes, and lungs!) 

When it comes to making the switch from conventional cleaning formulas to natural cleaning products, one of the most noticeable differences is the lack of irritation to our skin, eyes, and lungs. That’s because natural cleaning products like L’AVANT Collective are formulated with non-toxic scents made from essential oils. Essential oils are derived from flowers and plants, and when formulated correctly, they not only create a pleasant fragrance, but they help care for the skin that comes in contact with them. 


While these essential oil-based scents in natural cleaning products may not linger as long as artificial fragrance, we like to think of it this way: We love the way flowers smell, but their scent is also fleeting–so we appreciate it all the more while we’re enjoying it! And while conventional cleaning products may have scents that fill your home with their scent for hours, some of us find that these strong artificial fragrances can cause headaches, watery or itchy eyes, or even coughing from inhaling them. Artificial fragrance can contain thousands of chemicals that don’t have to be disclosed because the FDA considers such fragrances to be a “trade secret,” so it’s hard to pinpoint and avoid allergens because they’re not listed.

Natural cleaning products from L’AVANT Collective are easier on your skin, eyes, and lungs, and once you indulge in our proprietary non-toxic Fresh Linen and Limited Edition Winter Fir fragrances, you’ll wonder why you waited so long to make the switch. 


They’re easier on the environment, too 

Not only are natural cleaning products easier on us, they’re also easier on the environment. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in conventional cleaning products can enter our waterways after they’re rinsed down the drains in our homes, and while most of them are filtered out at waste treatment facilities, according to sfgate.com, nitrogen, phosphorus, and ammonia are not. These can build up in our waterways and affect plant life as a result, leading to overgrowth of some plants that can clog waterways and deplete oxygen in the water that fish and animals need to thrive. 


Natural cleaning products from L’AVANT Collective are formulated without VOCs and harsh foaming agents that can seriously harm or cause imbalances in the environment. Instead, our eco-luxe cleaning products are safe for people, pets, and our precious planet.

Natural cleaning products really work 

Many people resist natural cleaning products because they assume they don’t work as well as conventional cleaning products. But when we formulated L’AVANT Collective, we made sure our products would stand up to the everyday messes our families and pets created. And if our best selling, non-toxic cleaning formulas are any indication, it’s safe to say our customers agree that they work beautifully, too! 


By utilizing plant-based ingredients, we’ve created a line of natural cleaning products that cuts grease on dirty dishes, cleans surfaces with ease, washes hands without drying them out, and delivers on-the-go cleaning solutions in biodegradable wipes that won’t harm the planet. 


Now that you know why you should use natural cleaning products, discover your new favorite eco-luxe cleaners at L’AVANT Collective. We have a feeling you’ll love them as much as we do!
