3D GOES GREEN
At 3D, we realize the importance of green car products, safety, and concerns for health. After all we as humans are constantly exposed to harmful situations and/or toxic substances daily whether we want to or not. In an effort to reduce these harmful occurrences, we are constantly thinking ahead of market trends and government regulations. We converted our formulas to become VOC Compliant 5 years before it was a mandated regulation.
We have also converted our products to become more environmentally friendly, which means green and/or biodegradable formulas. 3D car care products offers a wide range of natural-source ingredients for almost all functionalities including active ingredients derived from different parts of various plants. We are constantly improving our products and business practices for ‘greener’ methods.
At 3D Products, we are dedicated to providing superior car care / cleaning products and training that is efficient and ‘environmentally responsible’ to our customers and distributors. Our research and development resources aim to accomplish one goal; to ensure every car wash product is sustainable and meets or exceeds regulatory compliance standards without sacrificing performance.
