The award, presented in conjunction with the British Chamber of Commerce Thailand, recognized the positive social and environmental impact that the company’s Pipper Standard-branded line of natural household cleaning products has had in the country.
Pipper Standard’s globally patented line of products—including laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid and floor cleaner, among others—is made from a unique pineapple fermentation process that yields powerful, natural enzymes and biosurfactants.
The brand’s natural, non-toxic, hypoallergenic and biodegradable-certified products have been extensively tested to clean comparable to chemical/synthetic products.
Pipper Standard’s products are also ECO certified, meaning they biodegrade by themselves more than 90% within one month.
“Our patented natural cleaning technology is at the forefront of a global movement away from potentially dangerous and harmful chemical cleaners towards safe, natural, non-toxic alternatives. We see this award as validation that we’re on the right path to a healthier future,” Wainman said.
Wainman, a US-born entrepreneur and former investment banker, founded the company more than 10 years ago after experiencing a debilitating allergic reaction to a chemical fabric softener.
Equator Pure Nature holds multiple patents in the United States, China, Europe, Indonesia, Singapore and Taiwan, with more pending in other markets. In total, the company has patents issued or pending in countries comprising approximately 70% of the world’s GDP.
“To our knowledge we are the only natural cleaning brand in the world with patented technology,” Wainman said.
