Compostable Packaging

This product is packaged or shipped in materials that can be composted in home systems or industrial facilities. Certain materials may be better fit for industrial facilities than backyard composting systems. Contact your local waste-hauler or composting facility to determine where these materials may be accepted. Industrial facilities may not exist in your area.

Cruelty Free

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

Handmade

We support small businesses and craftspeople who create each of their products with care. Handmade products are generally produced on a small scale, without the use of large energy consuming factories and production facilities. Buying handmade helps support art, communities, and people’s livelihoods.

Sustainable Manufacturing

  1. Question

    Vivian

    Will this work with oxyclean? And also do you know if oxyclean is eco friendly? From what I researched it seems to be okay but I wasn’t sure. If I add another tablespoon of oxyclean it shouldn’t affect its cleaning abilities correct?

      Hi Vivian! Great questions. This laundry powder will work just fine with Oxiclean, but you may find you don’t require an extra scoop since this laundry powder contains similar ingredients (baking soda and washing soda). The main ingredients in OxiClean are sodium percarbonate and sodium carbonate (baking soda). When sodium percarbonate interacts with water, it breaks down into sodium carbonate (more baking soda) and hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is responsible for the stain-lightening, bleaching effect of OxiClean. OxiClean is not inherently bad for the environment, but it is important to keep a close eye on how what other ingredients are mixed into the powder and how it’s fragranced. For a cleaner alternative, we love Dropps Oxi Booster pods!

    Love this detergent

    y.sal25g (verified owner)

    I tried this detergent and it also does the job well. I have used it to clean my cloth diapers. My cloth diapers are cleaned well and there is no bad smell that lingers. My baby’s skin is also sensitive and she tends to get rashes depending on the detergent I use. This has not reacted bad with her skin at all. I will continue to use this and meliora. Great product.

    This product along with a 1/4 c of white vinegar works wonders on my laundry. We have hard well water and this product works very well on the clothes. No smell or residue left on clothes.

  5. Question

    Julie

    How easily does the powder dissolve? My laundry machine is compact and uses low energy so the cycle isn’t as vigorous as a normal machine.

      Hi, Julie! For HE machines, you can use 1/2 a scoop instead 🙂

  6. Question

    Erin

    How does this work with front loading washing machines? I have been using liquid detergent with the addition of Borax to every load (as a booster). Curious how this product compares? I like that it’s reducing packing waste.

      Hi, Becky! Great question- many traditional powdered detergents are not septic safe due to their pesky filler ingredients and additives. Bestowed Essentials uses a fully biodegradable formula with natural surfactants Epsom and sea salts to get your clothes squeaky clean- leaving your septic tank safe and sound 🙂

      Hi Elizabeth! From what we’ve heard, this laundry powder works great in all kinds of water. It’s the machine that tends to be the issue when it comes to powder not dissolving. This is especially true if you have a high-efficiency (HE) washing machine that uses a low water cycle. Thanks for asking! 🙂
