TreeWear supports a number of planting projects around the country - but 2 of the main ones we support are the Sundarbans & North Rajasthan through our planting partners - grow-trees. We also plant trees in Mumbai during our special projects during the monsoon.
TreeWear is constantly supporting planting projects around the country & tree plantations are seasonal, so in all likelihood, you tree has already been planted by us. However, we keep a track of each tree we have planted & assign it a UTC (unique tree code) so that each one is accounted for. When you buy a product from us, a UTC is assigned to you, thereby you can see in which of our projects the tree has been planted.
To ensure maximum survival rates for the trees, we plant native species in all our projects. Therefore, we plant trees that are best suited to the project & it's purpose. To know which trees we plant in each project - check out our tree plantation page.
For our apparel, each
product equals a tree. However, for our personal care products, the cost of a
tree is divided into 4 individual products. Meaning each personal care product
contributes to 0.25 trees!
First, test the sanitizer on a small patch of skin before use to check for allergies. The pure essential oils used in the product are potent and in rare cases, can cause irritation. For regular usage, use one pump (or a small coin sized amount) of sanitizer and rub well between your palms and fingers. Unlike regular hand sanitizers, our product does not contain alcohol and would require about 10 seconds more of rubbing between your hands to fully evaporate. It can be used regularly during the day, however, we do suggest washing your hands with soap and water if they are very soiled.
Yes, absolutely! Our
sanitizers use completely natural and food grade ingredients which make it very
safe for children to use. We do not include alcohol, parabens, SLA or SLS in
our formulations. We would advise however, that the sanitizer should not be
used on infants below 6 months of age due to the potency of essential oils used
in the sanitizers for the anti-bacterial effect.
Our sanitizers use the
well-documented properties of anti-bacterial and anti-microbial essential oils.
Each blend contains oils that combat commonly found bacteria that are harmful
to us. We have had the sanitizer lab tested for efficacy against E.Coli, P. Aureus, Yeast, Mould etc.
No it does not and there is a
good reason for this. Most regular sanitizers use alcohol and other chemicals
to eliminate 99% of bacteria on your hands, good and bad bacteria. But with
daily usage, these santizers tend to compromise the body's immune system.
Because TreeWear sanitizers use essential oils to fight bacteria, it is a much
more holistic alternative as a daily sanitizer, which keeps your hands well
protected with regular use.
Unfortunately no. While a
lot of the ingredients we use are organic (eg. Coconut oil), we also have to
use natural ingredients (eg. Essential oils) which are a lot more difficult to
certify as organic. However you can rest assured that all our ingredients are
natural and we are steadily working towards finding certified organic ingredients.
TreeWear hand sanitizers
are made from completely natural ingredients. It is alcohol-free and uses pure
essential oils to combat harmful bacteria on the surface of your skin. Using
natural ingredients also means less affluence and a smaller negative impact on
the planet. We avoid the use of plastic in our packaging wherever possible and
most of our packaging can be upcycled. Also, we contribute 10% of each
sanitizer purchase towards a tree planting project
The smell depends on the variant (blend) of
sanitizer. We use pure essential oils to provide antibacterial properties for
our sanitizers and each of these blends has a slightly different aroma. The
Energizing blend (utilizing Orange, Pine & Sage essential oils) has a
citrusy smell, the Balanced Blend (utilizing Juniper Berry and Bergamot
essential oils) has tones of herbs and wood and the Calming blend (utilizing
Lavender and Cedarwood essential oils) has a floral and earthy tones. The smell
of each of these blends is mild and doesn't last more than a few minutes.
Yes, the water component of the sanitizer does require a very
small concentration (less than 0.5%) of preservative which we have included on
the ingredients label. The preservative that we use for the water component is
called Potassium Sorbate which is a food grade ingredient used for cheeses,
wines and yoghurt. It is a naturally occurring substance but due to its rarity
in nature, we use a synthesised version.
TreeWear deodorants are made from completely natural ingredients. They do
not stop you from perspiring, instead, they use the power of essential oils to
combat odour causing bacteria found on the skin leaving you odour free for an
extended period of time.
is not. Our products contain no Aluminium based compounds, the main active ingredient in an anti-perspirant. Sweating is a very natural function of the body utilized to regulate
our body temperature and flush out toxins. Our deodorant lets you sweat freely,
however the unpleasant odour of the sweat is eliminated by the use of the
essential oils blends used.
TreeWear deodorants are completely safe to use. They
contain only natural, food-grade ingredients. In addition to this, with
prolonged usage, you will find that TreeWear deodorants help your body readjust
to its natural state, which actually reduces the odour of your sweat over time.
It is also just as easy to use as a regular roll-on but uses almost no plastic
for the packaging.
standard variants of deodorants use beeswax and are not considered to be Vegan.
However, we have developed a range of fully Vegan deodorants for people who are
following Veganism. In these deodorants, we have substituted the Beeswax with
Candelilla wax which is derived from plants.
The smell depends on the blend of essential oils used.
The Herbal Infusion blend has the floral scent of Lavender. The Citrus Burst
blend has a mild smell Lemon but is quite potent due to the inclusion of Tea
Tree oil in the blend. The Spice Infusion blend has a prominent fragrance of
Cinnamon Leaf, which also provides an initial cooling effect, and the Forest
Fragrant blend has a strong yet pleasant aroma of Geranium and Cedarwood
The deodorants are effective in neutralizing odour causing bacteria
for typically 8-10 hours of the day. As the day goes on, you may notice the
smell of the deodorant diminishing, this is completely normal as the smell of
the essential oils wear off as they combat the odour causing bacteria. We do
not suggest using the deodorant as a perfume. It is purely and odour
neutralizing formulation, which ensures your body is odour free.
No, they do not. Our deodorant uses a completely preservative-free formulation, which uses the natural preservative properties of the waxes used in them, which is why we suggest using them with totally dry armpits.
Our natural deodorant sticks can be used in the same way as a normal roll-on deodorant. They provide protection from Body Odour between 8-12 hours, so using it twice a day, after a shower, will provide 24 Hour protection.
Also, we advise using our product on dry armpits, after a shower. To know more about how to use your Natural deo stick, please watch this video
