Greencare has a clear and passionate focus on the development and contract manufacturing of Certified Natural & Organic cosmetics and environmentally themed toiletries & home care products. We are also a significant manufacturer of general toiletries and home care products distributed via supermarkets in Australia.
Greencare draws the expertise of highly skilled and experienced personnel, together with a board of management committed to a contract manufacturing business based on sound principles of environmental, social and consumer health responsibility.
Our vision is to be able to develop and supply products which are sensitive to modern consumer attitudes towards health and environmental issues at no more cost than conventional products. We are able to produce volume in what is often viewed as a niche market. We manufacture products which can be seen in all major supermarkets nationally and pharmacies, department stores and health food stores.
We already have an extensive library of formulations and are able to develop new formulations to fit almost any brief. From moisturisers and anti-ageing creams, shampoo and hair treatments, spa products and tanning lotions to Greywater-compatible laundry liquids and cleansers, Greencare has a low-impact alternative ready to improve your product.
Our professional and qualified staff and systems are applied to develop, validate and manufacture a product that will meet the most stringent requirements of performance, stability and environmental responsibility.
As part of the development process we can also coordinate a range of additional services such as preservative challenge tests, microbiological and RIPT testing, dermatological studies, efficacy studies and toxicological reports, moisturizing and elasticity tests and, of course, environmental impact comparison studies.
Greencare offers customers a complete warehouse and distribution service, and with our computerised logistics system we can despatch your product to national retailers on a daily basis.
We have long-standing relationships with the major retail warehouses and can also take care of third party despatch and invoicing documentation. We are equipped to handle the packing of containers for overseas customers and handle most of the international regulatory requirements.
Greencare researches many active natural ingredients from around the world and only uses the highest quality and ethically produced plants and herbs.
Our research team is involved with the development of alternatives for example;
Surfactant Alternatives: High tech POF (Palm Oil Free) alternatives, The use of “instantly” primary biodegradable plant-based soaps in place of petrochemical surfactants.
Skin Care Products: Cosmeceuticals, Aromatherapy, Sunscreens, Australian and amp; Chinese traditional ingredients.
Solvent & Petrochemical Alternatives: The use of plant derived renewable solvents in place of petrochemical cleansers.
Household cleaning products, cosmetics and toiletries severely pollute our environment - particularly our waterways. Washing these chemicals into our drains and thinking they no longer pose any consequences is a grave misconception.
Consumerism seems to know no boundaries. We are constantly inventing new and more profitable and efficient ways to pollute our planet and poison ourselves.
At Greencare Developments, we are crusaders against this. While we recognise the need for people to want and buy cosmetics and household cleaners, if we can convince companies to look at the greenest possible formulations, while still delivering results, our work toward a more sustainable environment and better health is done.
