Our products do not contain the most common allergens found in other products such as artificial fragrance, colors, and soaping agents. In this way, we have reduced the risk that someone may have an allergic reaction when using our products, and therefore may be considered hypoallergenic. There is no established standard for the term “hypoallergenic”, so there is a lot of misleading information in the market about various beauty and household products and their safety for people with allergies.
Hypoallergenic claim should not be stated unless there is actual independent lab testing to support this claim. On Green Cricket sunscreen products, we follow the standard by testing 50 subjects using the Repeat Insult Patch Test (RIPT) to support our hypoallergenic claim on the packaging.
We do not use alcohol or triclosan in our products as there are negative health consequences with the repeated use of these substances, and they are not necessary for killing bacteria except in a hospital or clinical type of environment. Studies have determined that proper washing of hands (warm water and soap, rubbing hands together to lather, rinsing and drying) is the most effective way to kill germs.
Yes, we offer a custom amenity program for clubs, spas, hotels, resorts, and other facilities where we will create a unique design using your logo to create a product line that provides excellent quality to your guests. To learn more about our custom amenity program, click here.
Our retail and commercial product formulations are almost exactly the same. The only difference is we use a trace (less than .5%) artificial preservative in our commercial products to prolong the shelf life of the product to 3-5 years. Our retail product uses a plant-based preservative and is effective at holding the product for 18-24 months.
We offer a wide range of wall mounted, and counter type dispensing to our clients that are either customizing their own look, or using our Green Cricket labeled dispensing systems. Dispensers are offered free of charge if the client agrees to purchase Green Cricket products exclusively for a certain time period, otherwise, dispensing is available for purchase.
Yes, in addition to fragrance free, we have our amenities in various essential oil blends; lavender, coconut, pomegranate, and citrus. We are always expanding our line of scents using essential oil blends and natural plant based materials.
