With a background in cleaning, Camilla Schram, owner of HUMDAKIN, saw a gap in the market for eco-and allergy-friendly cleaning products. This wish and need for responsible products fueled Camilla’s passion and became the start of HUMDAKIN. In 2016 the first orders were sent out after 5 years of developing and testing the perfect cleaning products with unique benefits that you can’t find anywhere else.
HUMDAKIN is dedicated to offering a versatile selection of household and cleaning products inspired by the Danish shores and forests. All of our products contain Nordic ingredients including sea buckthorn, chamomile and salvie, all of which will grant a pleasant and long-lasting scent while being gentle on the skin and our planet.
Our textile collection is made of GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified organic cotton and is inspired by Camilla’s grandmother’s techniques from the 1950s. We offer a wide range of colors within each category to fit every preference and household.
All of HUMDAKIN’s products are manufactured at factories under proper working conditions with high ethical and environmental standards.
The essence of HUMDAKIN is to embrace life and the privilege to choose a clean home for you and for your loved ones. HUMDAKIN wants you to see the products as an everyday luxury and hopefully give you the feeling of wanting to keep your household organized, clean and styled.
We hope you will get joy from cleaning with products from HUMDAKIN’s modern universe.
When Camilla owned her own cleaning company, it was impossible for her to find effective, allergy-friendly cleaning products without tons of harsh chemicals. She knew that products packed with chemicals and perfumes couldn’t be the only option. So, she refused to compromise and decided to change the status quo of household cleaning once and for all. And so, knowing she wasn’t the only consumer looking for a mild alternative, Camilla launched her own business to tackle this issue. After the 5-year development process, Humdakin was born in 2016 with sustainability as part of its DNA. We know, as a business and as individuals, that we are responsible for ourselves and the way our actions impact the environment. Together we can do better. For ourselves, our families, our homes, and the planet.
What exactly do we do to attempt to create better alternatives for you and the environment?
No chemical perfumes
As a child, Camilla was very sensitive to perfumes, and as an adult she found it impossible to find cleaning products without chemical perfumes. Our products only contain natural extracts from Scandinavian ingredients such as sea buckthorn. This natural perfume is allergy friendly and a great alternative if you want a home that smells fresh and clean without using chemical perfumes that irritate the skin.
No harsh chemicals
We bet on the power of Nordic natural ingredients like salvia, sea buckthorn, chamomile or red seaweed, which all contain amazing properties that heal and protect. We do not use harsh preservatives, parabens, dyes, essential oils, chemical perfumes, endocrine disrupting substances or carcinogens. All liquid products are vegan and no Humdakin products have been tested on animals.
100% non-toxic and biodegradable wax blend
You can experience a true hygge moment after cleaning with Humdakin’s scented candles made of a wax blend of natural ingredients such as shea butter, RSPO certified palm, and coconut. They do not contain beeswax.
GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified organic cotton
All of our textiles are made of 100% GOTS and OEKO-TEX certified organic cotton. The whole production process as well as the resources used within it must meet high environmental and social criteria. That means that all of our products are manufactured under proper working conditions with high ethical and environmental standards. We do not partner with manufacturers that support or use child labor.
Cruelty-free and vegan
Animals are important part of our eco-systems and something we should be working to protect. That’s why all of our products are cruelty-free. All of our products except our dish brush with horsehair are vegan. The horse hair comes from happy and cared-for horses that are not harmed in the process.
Eco-friendly materials & refill solutions
All of our cleaning products are made from 100% recyclable PET plastic. PET plastic is one of the most recyclable plastic materials. The accessories, such as the brushes, are created with sustainable resources. They are either made with FSC certified wood or sustainable materials such as bamboo, mango wood and coconut fibers. We also strive to create solutions that reduce waste, such as our refill for our fragrance sticks in glass bottles.
This is only the beginning.
We work every day to improve and bring you even better solutions. It is a work in progress but it is a cause, or mindset, that is near and dear to us at Humdakin.
Lastly, we want to clarify that we don’t lead the perfect sustainable lifestyle, and we aren’t asking you to either. We are all human. It’s important to start somewhere small, do what you can do, and find your own way. Rather start small than be scared off by the concept of a completely sustainable lifestyle. Humdakin can help you get started with the small changes you can make in your daily life. We hope to inspire you to no longer compromise when it comes to yourself, a clean and stylish home, and the environment.
My childhood home, and my memories from that time, are centered around the motto “calm, consistent and clean”, which my mother strongly believed in. I nostalgically remember the smell of clean laundry, beautiful flowers and the amazing feeling of a clean home. I’ve always found peace and security in my home, and my wish with HUMDAKIN is to be able to share that feeling.
The foundation from which I was able to create the brand HUMDAKIN is a mixture of a course with innovation, my job as a florist, and the development of a cleaning company that I started during my time in law school. My time at law school came to an end because my love for cleaning and styling took over. That passion led to 10 years of cleaning in private homes and companies. During my time running this company, I made It my mission to create a home, room or office that was styled, clean and safe for all my customers. That could be by placing a homemade soap in the bathroom and folding the last piece of toilet paper on the roll like they do in all the luxurious hotels.
However, the lack of effective but mild cleaning products that could make cleaning fun for everyone was what sparked my passion and the development of the products that today constitute the brand HUMDAKIN. Before the launch of the company in 2016, I worked 5 years to develop these products.
HUMDAKIN was created based a dream to create effective, eco-friendly and allergy-friendly products with a beautiful design. Products that you feel proud of using and that you want to leave standing out.
I hope you will enjoy the products from HUMDAKIN that were made with a passion for cleaning, and that HUMDAKIN can inspire you to embrace cleaning for all that it is.
