Who We Are

When it comes to cleaners, the consumer has little to go on beyond the warning labels that manufactures are required to put on their products. The labels, DANGER, WARNING, and POISON give only a general idea about the seriousness of the unknown substances a product contains.

Demand for safe “Green” cleaning products is on the rise, as consumers are increasingly unwilling to risk their health for the sake of a “clean” home. The truth is, most cleaning products on the market are toxic, chemical cocktails and when you spritz your bathtub or kitchen bench with that brightly coloured liquid you’re exposing yourself and your family to endocrine-disrupting phthalates, carcinogenic benzene, and organ-damaging phenols, just to name a few.

Unfortunately, finding a safer option is not as straightforward as it may seem, because when it comes to cleaning products, even avowedly “green” cleaning products…….. let’s just say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.

Here at Primal Cottage we hand make each and every product personally, so we have complete control over what goes in to every bottle to ensure that your home or business sparkles and gleams without any toxic nasties or residues that may harm you, your family, your pets or the environment.

Primal Cottage is a home based business, situated on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. We have invested time and energy into finding eco-friendly, affordable products that actually work !!!! We strive to find ways of improving our chemical footprint when it comes to waste water discharge into our streams and rivers. The amount of toxic chemicals found in most cleaning products today is astounding. We want to do our bit in reducing the effects of these toxins and chemicals affecting not only our own health but the health of our planet. Together we can make a difference!!

Creating cleaning products for my own home that worked well and weren’t harmful to my family or the environment was important to me. I wanted a way to rid my home of harmful chemicals and found that going back to basics was actually the way forward. Let’s try to reduce the chemical stew we all live in – Let’s make a difference together!
