Green products from Pole-to-Pole

Antarctica is a remote, mysterious place where teams of explorers and scientists dig in for long periods of research. The Polar Research Institute of China is one such group. They conduct comprehensive polar region studies to help the global community better understand environmental issues.

In 2002, the Institute needed environmentally friendly homecare products for daily use at their Zhongshan and Changchun Antarctic research stations. They asked Amway China to provide them with six different homecare and personal care products – LOC, Dish Drops, Zoom, SA8, Air Freshener and Glister Toothpaste – because our products are biodegradable and phosphate free. And they match all of the requirements of the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty.

In 2008 the Institute established a third Antarctic research station, Kunlun, and expanded their relationship with Amway China. Amway products are being used at the Institute’s three Antarctic research stations, on their Xue Long research ship, and in their Arctic research station at the North Pole.

So you can find LOC at both poles, and many places in between.
