TRIPLE ORANGE™ – THE ORIGINS
Being in the health and nutrition industry for over 30 years, the founders of TRIPLE ORANGE™ watched thousands of people move towards a healthier lifestyle. People were actively seeking healthier solutions to daily life concerns, with a genuine care, not just for individual well-being, but that of the environment we live in as well.
The logic – hazardous chemicals found in most detergents endanger our environment by contaminating ground water, lakes and oceans. In many cases decimating species that are dependent on water, i.e. fish, frogs, plants. Studies have shown that in most homes chemical toxicity levels exceed the permitted standards and in many cases are up to 70 times higher than our external environment. When ingested, absorbed through the skin or inhaled these chemicals can cause a myriad of residual illnesses that often appear much later on after use. Detergents are widely used in both industrial and domestic premises hence major entry point into water is via sewage works into surface water. They are also used in pesticide formulations and for dispersing oil spills at sea. Using Triple Orange gently washes away these worries.
This reality prompted the family to research and subsequently develop natural household and industrial cleaning products using plant-based ingredients. They conscientiously thought out how their products could be created, used, and disposed of in the most natural way possible. This journey saw the birth of TRIPLE ORANGE™ 10 years ago, a family business which manufactures a line of natural, nontoxic detergents and multipurpose cleaners that are biodegradable and efficient. Product performance is not compromised for safety at Triple Orange and with growth we are increasingly catering for and facilitating the movement towards an eco-conscious lifestyle for individuals, families and mindful organisations.
How can cleaning products be sustainable? Cleanliness in the environment contributes to clean and green surroundings. Use of sustainable manufacturing practices has placed Triple Orange at the forefront of the green cleaning movement in South Africa. Orange oil, resulting from cold pressed extraction from the peel of an orange, is the main ingredient in its exclusive formulations. Orange oil is a natural, powerful degreaser, a solvent that is also a pesticide and an insecticide. With orange oil being a by-product of the juicing industry, none of the fruit is wasted and this essential oil with it’s fresh citrus aroma is known to, among other things, help you de-stress and cheer you up. An added bonus is that the oil is from a renewable source. A delicious blend of benefits all wrapped up in this succulent fruit, the power of orange! Triple Orange is a very Proudly South African company, sourcing the majority of all our ingredients from local processing plants, distillation houses, manufacturers and farms. Not only does this enable us to minimise our carbon footprint but it also allows us to support other small businesses.
The Triple Orange mission is to become the most trusted brand of authentic, safe and environmentally responsible products for a healthy home and mother earth. We pledge that our products are environmentally responsible, work well and provide value. We will never test on animals or use animal ingredients. We will conduct business in a socially responsible manner that safeguards the earth. Every time you use a TRIPLE ORANGE™ product you are making a difference by saving natural resources, reducing pollution and keeping toxic chemicals out of the environment. To say we are a family owned and operated business means that to us, it’s personal!
