How/Why we use it
What it is
Natural mineral; also known as washing soda, soda ash and soda crystals, it’s well known for its everyday use as a water softener and helps detergents fully dissolve for maximum efficacy.
sodium carbonate peroxide
cleans + removes stains + brightens
Natural mineral; oxidizing agent; breaks down into sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide acts as a bleach, and as an antimicrobial agent. The sodium carbonate boosts the bleaching effect of the hydrogen peroxide.
Natural mineral; helps detergents fully dissolve for maximum efficacy; preserves product appearance and prevents product deterioration; often adjusts pH levels.
Natural mineral; adjusts pH levels to prevent product deterioration and prevents re-positing of removed debris.
C10-16 alkyl benzenesulfonic acid sodium salt
Primarily used as a detergent surfactant; further used in light-duty liquid dishwashing compounds, heavy-duty liquid and powder detergents, all purpose cleaners as well as in personal care products.
Works as a free-flow agent by coating the surface of the powder, thereby reducing sticky interparticle interactions. Found in nature as opal and in the cell walls of diatoms.
essential oil blend of lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, lavandula hybrida (lavandin) oil, citrus aurantifolia (lime) oil, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) flower oil. proprietary, safer man-made ingredient blend. (Learn more about our fragrances below)
for a pleasant scent. ensures a long lasting scent throughout the washing and drying cycles
Cleaning composition; acts as a barrier to protect surfaces against repositioning of removed debris.
Plant-derived surfactant; works as cleansing agent to improve cleaning efficacy.
amylase enzyme blend
breaks down and removes potato, rice, pasta and other starch-based stains
Plant-derived enzyme that allows lower temperatures to be employed with shorter periods of agitation during the wash cycle.
subtilisin enzyme blend
breaks down and removes grass, blood, egg and other protein-based stains
Microbial-produced, this protein-degrading component breaks the peptide bonds that hold proteins together.
pH neutral, mineral compound used for thickening.
diamyl sodium sulfosuccinate
Used as a cleaning agent, foam stabilizing agent in personal care products, emulsifier and as a wetting agent.
