Harmless House founder Kate Townshend said: "The products speak for themselves - Sanctum’s product and ingredient standards are high and we are so proud to partner with Cansa; one of South African’s most respected non-profit organisations, on this brand." Cansa aims to educate consumers and help them to identify products free of chemicals linked by research to cancer. Sanctum produces 100% naturally derived, certified organic products which are researched, developed and created in pristine Byron Bay in Australia. More importantly, however, Sanctum products do not contain any harsh chemicals such as artificial preservatives, colours, fragrances, dioxins, petrochemicals, mineral oils, Propylene Glycol, Diethanolamine (DEA), Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Aluminium or animal derived ingredients. Many of these ingredients have been linked to health risks such as various cancers, dermatitis and endocrine disruption.Says Sue Janse van Rensburg, Cansa CEO: "We’re excited to know that people can use safe products with this Sanctum range, while supporting us in the fight against cancer."Harmless House was created in 2010 with these health and other ethical issues in mind. Through extensive research, Townshend ensured that all brands and products represented by the company were also cruelty-free certified: "That has always been a passion of mine, and is a focus for Harmless House," concluded Townshend.An added bonus for customers is that a percentage of proceeds on every Sanctum purchase will go to Cansa.All products are available online from www.harmlesshouse.co.za.
