Foundation

Our Foundation

Inspired by the wisdom of ancient Ayurveda and motivated by clean, healthy living, Herbocare was born.

Years ago, Late Mr. Tilak Raj Sharma, laid a seed in the foundation of this company as his deep knowledge of herbs & plants made him utilize their benefits in day-to-day chores and provided the future inspiration for the creation of Herbocare.

Our founder, Mr. Tejveer Sharma with his dedication and supreme will to fulfill his father’s idea of a clean & healthy surrounding, decided to nurture those herbal ideas with a commitment to creating safer cleaning products that protect the health and wellbeing of both people and the planet.

Over the years, after consistent efforts and numerous field trials to resolve the stubborn cleaning challenges by Green Cleaning like hard water stains, oil stains from the oil industry, laundry challenges, junk stains, post-construction stains (Cement), engine cleaning without kerosene or diesel, stains & foul smell in toilets, vessel & utensil cleaning, paan & tobacco stains, Stains on metal like brass, steel, silver, etc from the following industries :

  • Dairy Farms Industry
  • Government Organizations
  • Schools, Colleges & Universities
  • Hospitals & Nursing Homes
  • Hotel Industry
  • Cinema Industry (PVRs)
  • Textile Industry

We have been able to formulate products that support the well-being of the ecology and do not degrade in any way to the quality of air, soil, and water, meeting the Herbocare standard of life. Having acquired MSDS reporting and NABL lab test credentials across our entire product line, the company was formally launched in 2014 and has been recently rechristened as "Herbocare".

Today with the same vision and hard work that has been put in the foundation, Mr. Tejveer Sharma continues to play his part in contributing towards a chemical-free, healthy and greener future. Under his leadership, our commitment to combating chemicals and piloting ecological restoration grows stronger than ever.

MISSION AND VISION

OUR GREEN MISSION AND VISION

"Populating Nature-based solutions for a cleaner, greener, healthier planet."

Herbocare products were nurtured out of love, concern, and the driving passion to remove chemicals from our homes, striving to reverse their negative balance on our planet.

Chemical innovation helped us rid our homes of threat posing germs and diseases, however, the cleaning pendulum has swung too far into the toxic sphere and the chemicals designed to keep our homes healthy are causing more harm to us and our natural environment.

Working continuously to eliminate the toxic, carcinogenic & corrosive chemical cleaners from our homes and environment, we arrived at a range of completely new plant-derived & mineral-based products, devoid of any acids or chemicals so inconspicuously present in all cleaning products available in the market. A variety of harmful products are thriving in the markets as cleaning solutions which are continuously and silently drenching the Earth with toxins generated through their usage in multifarious cleaning activities.

We endeavor to replace those with eco–friendly products which are not only highly efficient and cost-effective, but even the wastes generated from their usage are bio-degradable and harmless to Mother Earth. In so doing, we hope to repay a small portion of the limitless debt, which mankind owes to Mother Nature.

We believe that saving the planet starts with small acts. That every action, big or small, has the power to lead to a more sustainable world. That’s why we’re intentional in every step of our business, from where a product is sourced, to how it’s made, to where it ends up because we don’t just want to be neutral – we’re here to leave a positive impact on the planet we all call home.

SUSTAINABILITY

OUR SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS

" We don’t just believe a brighter, fresher future is possible. We’re ensuring it happens."

How we build safety and environmental sustainability into every product innovation

With a carefully developed industry-leading safety and environmental sustainability science, we ensure that our product and processes are safe for consumers and workers and that our purpose-led brand can be confident in the statements we make about our products and ingredient safety, health, environmental sustainability, and the planet.

Our people work closely across Herbocare at every stage of a product's life, from discovering and designing new concepts to fully embedding new technologies in our product innovations and understanding product use and disposal by consumers across the world. By being involved at the very beginning, we can provide essential safety and environmental sustainability guidance throughout the innovation process.

This allows us to apply the best creative, leading-edge science and to truly design safety and sustainability into our products. This means new Herbocare products and processes are always designed to ensure that they are safe for our consumers to use, for our workers to make, and for the environment. Such an approach also helps us to identify how to minimize the environmental impacts of our products and manufacturing processes, notably regarding energy, water, and waste across their lifecycle.

Environmental Policy

All our products are manufactured using cold processing methods which save energy & electricity.

Water Conservation

We have designed our products on the “LOW FOAM GENERATION “ technique which saves water not only in the manufacturing process but also during cleaning as our products have a substantially low water requirement.

Materials and Packaging

Our bottles are made of durable, high-density plastic. They are designed to be reused as many times as possible by pouring the liquid from our refill packs into them (in case of a subscription). If they are disposed of, they are highly valuable to recyclers and will be recycled.

Zero Wastage

While we are proud to have achieved a zero-waste status across our manufacturing operations and the wider business, there is a lot more to be done to inspire a wide-scale movement and to encourage other businesses and industries to take up the zero-waste challenge. By building a network of partners and working together, we can eliminate waste on an unprecedented scale across the country.

INGREDIENTS

OUR INGREDIENTS

"If you don't recognize an ingredient, your body won't either."

Our products are completely based on the formulation of Ayurveda - a blend of fruits peel, carrier edible and essential oils, minerals, natural oils, plant-derived & food grade based ingredients.

Transparency is our way of life

We are proud of the ingredients we use and the products we make, all our labels clearly outline every ingredient within each Herbocare product - no exaggerations, no omissions.

Let Nature do the work

Our living ecosystem is miraculously full of regenerative processes and cycles. From photosynthesis to the carbon cycle, nature already knows how to clean. We harness this power by using plant-derived ingredients as our active cleaners.

Life Cycle: Infinity

We rigorously study the environmental impact of each ingredient and product. All our products are readily biodegradable and we never use ingredients that bioaccumulate. Our plant-powered cleaners are made from renewable resources.

Clean Green Chemistry

It's not rocket science, it's green science. Every ingredient in every product is carefully selected and optimized which means we never add unnecessary ingredients like dyes or artificial fragrances.

WHAT WE DON'T USE

Over the past few years, there has been a push for greater transparency in ingredient labeling on household cleaning products.
Yet, many household cleaners using a plethora of toxic chemicals don't even list them on their labels, leaving you blind to the nasty chemicals you could be inviting into your home. We’ve made it our job to go above and beyond the minimum requirements and provide you with the knowledge you need to make safer healthier choices.

After a decade of research and testing, these are some of the products and ingredients we came across that you need to know about. We’re committed to never, ever using them, and we want to make it easy for you to make that commitment too.

IMPACT ON HUMAN HEALTH


Bleach

Being a strong corrosive substance, bleach can affect the respiratory system if inhaled. Bleach can also irritate or burn the skin and eyes. Ingesting bleach can cause pulmonary edema or vomiting and coma.

Drain cleaners

These dangerous substances contain lye and other chemicals known to cause burns to the skin and eyes, and even blindness in severe cases. Swallowing a small amount of drain cleaner can severely affect the throat, stomach and may even cause death.

Carpet or upholstery cleaners

Carpet cleaners contain naphthalene, which is known to cause cataract formation and liver damage over a long exposure. The perchloroethylene in carpet cleaners is carcinogenic, and it may cause dizziness, headaches, kidney dysfunction, neurological damage, and other problems from short-term exposure.

Ammonia

Ammonia produces fumes that can irritate the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. People suffering from asthma or heart or lung problems should avoid using ammonia. Mixing ammonia with chlorine products (such as bleach) produces an even more dangerous gas which is potentially fatal.

Air fresheners

Air fresheners are known to contain formaldehyde, a strong (possibly carcinogenic) substance that irritates the skin, eyes, or throat. They contain other dangerous chemicals which may cause nervous system damage or pulmonary edema in sensitive individuals.

IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT

The chemicals in many cleaners are common pollutants that contribute to smog, reduce the quality of drinking water, and are toxic to animals. The effect of cleaning products on the environment is wide-ranging.

Entering the Waterways

Nitrogen, phosphorus, and ammonia are dangerous water contaminants in large quantities. They have rinsed down drains and flushed down toilets as families clean the house. Most pollutants are removed from the water by the waste treatment facilities before the water is returned to the rivers, streams, lakes, and other waterways.

However, those three household cleaning chemicals are not removed by waste treatment processes. Instead, they enter the waterways and build up, causing an accelerated growth of some types of plant life, ultimately disrupting ecosystems.

Chemical Effects in the Water

Ammonia, nitrogen, and phosphorus are all fertilizers used in agriculture to help plants grow in controlled environments on farms. When those same chemicals enter a freshwater environment as residues of household cleaning, their levels are not controlled. The result is excessive nourishment of some types of plant life in habitats native to aquatic animals. This can lead to dense vegetation that clogs waterways, crowding out animal life and other marine plants.

At the end of these plants' chemical-accelerated life cycle, they die in large masses, decaying and depleting the oxygen in the water. Algae then grow, and the animals – freshwater shellfish, fish, and others – die off as well; the die-offs cause more decay. Soon, the water is no longer suitable for drinking, cooking, or bathing.

Air Contamination Hazards

VOCs can cause health hazards by concentrating inside the household air, and when windows are raised to ventilate while cleaning, the problem goes outdoors. According to the EPA, VOCs contribute to smog, and the pollution is so severe in some areas that legislation to ban or restrict the amount of VOCs in household cleaners became necessary.

F.A.Q

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How are the bottles eco-friendly when they are made of plastic?

    We’ve designed the bottles for reuse. You see, we went through a lot of research looking for sustainable packaging options. We discovered that alternatives like metal and glass have a higher carbon footprint if you take into account processes like mining, production and transportation. Bioplastic too, as trendy as it may sound, is yet to undergo more research to be established as an eco-friendly alternative. Which is why we encourage you to reuse the bottles as much as you can. Every subsequent month after the first purchase, we ship out refill pouches reducing your plastic footprint on the planet. We also run a take-back program for our packaging.
