Kin Kin Naturals

We’re a Noosa Hinterland based family business, passionate about making local, all natural cleaning products that actually work. We use only ingredients we would put in our own backyard or close to our children’s skin.

Dad – Felix – is a PhD-qualified formulator, who used to work for OMO. His skills level is unique in the world of eco products – we hope you will notice the difference when using our products.
Mum – Sandy – is in charge of production and also develops our packaging designs.
Our kids – Marijn and Pippa – help as well, at times.
Kin Kin naturals is our baby. We’ve put our heart and soul into our products and hope you will love them too!

Formulated with care to leave no traces behind, we believe our products are the most garden & greywater and septic-friendly products in Australia, being:

  • plant (coconut) and mineral based
  • free of toxic ingredients, phosphate and high alkalinity
  • at least 95% less sodium than regular detergents
    • Sodium (‘salt’) is damaging for both soil and plants, causing clogging of soil and the dehydration of plants. The majority of Sodium salt used in detergents is used as just a filler. The remainder can often be replaced – as we do – by Potassium-based alternatives which are actually beneficial for plants and soil.
    • On average 18 kg Sodium salt per year ends up in gardens or the wider Australian environment for every Australian household using a regular laundry powder. Using Kin Kin naturals, the Sodium salt loading is reduced to only 100g per year, a safe level.
  • completely and readily biodegradable
    • our full products and each of our ingredients individually exceed Australian standard AS4351
    • this also means we do not use the petrochemical surfactant called ‘LAS’ (linear alkylbenzene sulphonate) which is poorly biodegradable under anaerobic (low oxygen) conditions that may occur in septic systems and soil.

We select our ingredients based on common sense and the latest dermatologic literature. You will find no SLS, LAS or any toxic or skin sensitizing ingredients in Kin Kin naturals products.
None of our ingredients are derived from, or tested on animals. It’s perfectly possible to formulate an effective product without those.
