An eco-labeled cleaning solution protects you, your surroundings, and the environment from unnecessary exposure to toxic substances.
Cleaning is essential in the maintenance of health and hygiene in health care, public buildings, and in our private homes. However, regular detergents are often filled with toxic chemicals, which can have the opposite effect on the well-being of humans and the environment. To avoid this, choosing eco-labeled cleaning products can be a great solution.
By choosing our cleaning series Puri-Line you say yes to safety, functionality, and to better preservation of the environment.
Choosing the right cleaning detergent can be a challenge. The big variety of products often makes it difficult to select the right product for your purpose. At the same time, the amount and type of chemicals vary from product to product, which makes the correct dosing and application vary in every detergent. Hereby, you risk dosing too much of your product in your use and hereby expose yourself, your surroundings, and nature to an unnecessary overdose of chemicals. The consequences can be an impairment of your personal health and of nature in general, such as water quality and wildlife.
Cleaning is one of our main ways to ensure good health, and the use of detergents provides us with the most efficient result. But it is possible to avoid unnecessary chemicals by choosing eco-labeled cleaning solutions certified by e.g. the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. The certificate becomes your insurance that you clean with a product of the highest quality which also is optimal in environmental terms.
The Cocktail Effect
Today, cleaning detergents must comply with the overall limit values, which are set up for chemicals that can be found in everyday products, for instance food, cosmetics, electronics and clothes. However, when being exposed to a lot of different chemicals in your daily life, the total amount of chemicals, which you are exposed to, often becomes higher than recommended. Moreover, chemicals can react with each other and potentially strengthen the toxicity of one another. Figuratively speaking, 1+1 becomes 3.
Puri-Line makes eco-labeled cleaning easy. With Puri-Line, you are sure to get the best environmental cleaning solution possible, whether you choose detergents, mops, cloths - or both!
This can save you a lot of time when purchasing suitable products. Moreover, in the Puri-Line series you also find products without color and perfume, which help increase the indoor air quality, the well-being of your health and in the end, the environment.
At ABENA, we always consider the Nordic Swan Ecolabel when developing, producing, and managing new products in our range. You will find Nordic Swan eco-labeled products in many of our product areas, including Puri-Line, our own series of detergents and -tools, which all have the Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification.

Puri-Line detergents consist of a wide range of cleaning products for different cleaning purposes.
In our series, you will find products for:
Puri-Line is created with easiness and functionality in mind. Dosage and application instructions and color coding are two important features that provide the best user-experience.
Dosage and application pictograms and color coding provide a quick and easy overview of where and how the product should be used. Moreover, the color coding also shows on the cap of the detergent bottle, which makes it easy to recognize the different types of products and quickly find the most suitable solution for your cleaning task.
All cleaning detergents in the Puri-Line series carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. To obtain this certification, certain parameters have been checked and evaluated for each individual product.
Regarding detergents, a Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification requires that all surfactants in the product are easily degradable. In addition, the product must be among the most responsible on the market in production, use, disposal, and recirculation. This means that all products have complied with several strict requirements, for instance, these:
As our latest expansion, you now find mops and cloths in the Puri-Line series. Both mops and cloths in the Puri-Line series come in various sizes and capacities. As with the detergents, mops and cloths are color-coded, thus making it easy to tell the products apart. This creates safety because it helps you avoid cross-contamination with bacteria, e.g. so a product used for sanitary purposes is not accidentally used in the kitchen area afterward.
All products are based on microfiber, which results in a perfect cleaning because of the microfibers' high absorption ability. The use of microfiber is a more responsible cleaning solution because it reduces water usage, and the usage of detergents, and has a long life span.
What is microfiber?
Mops and cloths in the Puri-Line series are made from ultra-fine microfibers and consist of polyester and polyamide. The microfibers are conjugated as fibers and cleaved into 16 threads. This makes the fibers thinner than one hundredth of a human hair. When the small, thin microfiber threads are assembled into a cloth, this creates a large surface area with lots of cavities, in which dirt and grime can be collected and retained. The fibers open up and release the dirt when the cloths are washed at a minimum temperature of 67°C.
As with all products in the Puri-Line series, both mops and cloths carry the Nordic Swan Ecolabel certification and are hereby among the most responsible solutions on the market of the highest quality. To mention a few, all mops and cloths in the Puri-Line series have complied with these requirements:
The product provides a good, high-quality cleaning effect, is gentle on the substrate, and has excellent durability.
At least 80% of the fibers are either recycled or meet other specific requirements from the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
Stringent requirements for chemicals are met – including the fact that carcinogenic or allergenic substances must not be used for color.
