Non organic ingredients

None of these are found in any of our products


Ecomaat are proud to produce products derived from only organic ingredients and that conform to strict Lacon Germany and USDA NOP guidelines and are thus  certified for their organic credentials and premium qualities.


We are constantly asked what differentiates our products; the answer is very simple, no chemicals are used - only the finest raw organic seeds(fully traceable), organic and ecological farming methods and harvesting processes. 


For your reference we have compliled a list of chemicals (whilst extensive it is by no means finate) to help guide and enable you to evaluate products that you are considering, so you can make your own qualified judgement and understand the real  ingredients. Please note that chemical names can often  be changed/altered to meet regularitory body des ignations. 


Direct carcinogens (recorded as having direct effect in causing cancer)

Butyl Benzyphthalate

Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA)

Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)

“Coal Tar Dyes” (and lakes) D & C Red 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 17, 19 & 33, Green 5, Orange 17, FD & C Blue 1, 2 & 4, Green 3, Red 4 & 40, Yellow 5 & 6

Crystalline Silica


Diethanolamine (DEA)

Doictyl Adipate

Disperse Blue 1, Disperse Yellow 3 (clourants)





Methylene Chloride

Methylisothiazolinone and Methylchloroisothiazolinone


p-Phenylenediamine (following oxidation)



Talc (only in loose form, particularly around genitalia)

Contaminants - these are hidden carcinogens contaminating other chemicals such as dioxane, a highly potent carcinogen.

1,4-Dioxane. In Ethoxylated Alcohols, including PEGs, Oleths, Polysorbates, Nonoxynol.
Arsenic and Lead. In Coal Tar Dyes, Polyvinyl Acetate, PEGs (polyethylene glycols).
DDT and related Pesticides. In Lanolin, Quarterniums.
Diethanolamine (DEA). In DEA Cocamide/ Lauramide condensates, Quaterniums.
Ethylene Oxide. In Ethoxylated Alcohols, including PEGs, Oleths, Polysorbates, Nonoxynol.
Formaldehyde. In Polyoxymethylene Urea.

Nitrosamine Precursors

Nitrosamines are highly carcinogenic. Nitrosamine precursors interact with other chemicals in the product to form nitrosamines.

Diethanolamine (DEA)
DEA-Cocamide, Lauramide and Oleamide condensates
DEA-Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
Pyroglumatic Acid
Triethanolamine (TEA)
TEA-Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

Formaldehyde Precursors

Formaldehyde is highly toxic, neurotoxic, genotoxic and carcinogenic. Formaldehyde precursors react with other chemicals in the product to release formaldehyde (used to preserve dead bodies).

Diazolidonyl Urea
Imidazolidinyl Urea
Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate

Endocrine (Hormonal) Disruptors 

Parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl also known as hydroxy methyl benzoates).

Separate university studies have shown that parabens are absorbed into the blood-stream and disrupt the hormonal system. They may be associated with breast cancer.

Butyl Benzyl Phthalate
Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA)
Butylmethoxydibenzoylmethane (B-MDM)
Dibutyl Phthalate
Diethyl Phthalate
Homosalate (HMS)
Methyl-benzylidene Camphor (4-MDC)
Octyl-dimethyl-PABA (OD-PABA)
Octyl-methoxycinnamate (OMC)
