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.

Sustainability Features

Origin

  • Produced and packaged in Chicago, Illinois, USA

Ingredients

  • Unscented: Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water] Peppermint Tea Tree: Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water], Organic Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Organic Melaleuca Alternafolia Leaf (Tea Tree) Oil
  • Additional info: sodium cocoate is the chemical name of coconut oil that has been saponified (aka 'made into soap'). Sodium sunflowerate is the chemical name of sunflower seed oil that has been saponified. There will be some coconut and sunflower seed oils left in the soap after they are saponified, due to the fact that Meliora uses sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process. Leaving these excess oils in the soap ensures there is NO remaining lye in the finished product, and gives the soap its lather and moisture. This process is also called 'superfatting'. Glycerin is naturally created when the oils are converted into soap–and helps to keep skin soft, and is an effective solvent, making it great for dissolving stains and dirt. Water is used in the soapmaking process to dissolve the lye, and then is dried out over several weeks, resulting in a hard soap bar with very little water leftover. There is ~5% water leftover in these soap bars, compared to liquid soap that contains ~60% water. Sodium bicarbonate, aka baking soda, is an odor neutralizer and gentle abrasive.

About the Company

Meliora

Meliora began when their co-founder, Kate, began wondering what was really in her cleaning products. After discovering companies aren’t actually required to list all of their ingredients (what?!), Kate set out to create cleaning products with simple, earth-friendly ingredients that are listed on the front of the package. Meliora means “better” in Latin, and that’s what these cleaning products are made to be. They’re conscious about choosing ingredients that are effective, safe for the home and body, and cause no trouble for Mother Earth after the chores are said and done. Meliora boasts the MADE SAFEⓇ seal and Leaping Bunny on all products, ensuring that no products or ingredients build up on our bodies, in the environment, are toxic for the oceans, or are tested on animals.

    Great product! Awesome smell and does the job! Only thing I would change is the size – wish it was a bit bigger or there were other size options with refillable bags – but this won’t deter me from purchasing again!

      Hi! This scrub is excellent for kitchen cleaning! We love it for stainless steel, ceramic/porcelain tile, and most stovetops. It’s best to avoid it on any natural/sealed stone and non-stick cookware!

    nice scrub

    bkara16 (verified owner)

    This has such a pleasant scent when cleaning. I have used it on my 30+ year old tub with the non slip bottom that always gets grimy. It cleans so nicely with not much effort and leaves a light scent. I have tried using baking soda and vinegar in the past as my homemade cleaner so I am so very happy with this. Just a little bit is needed and it smells much nicer than the vinegar. I have also used it to clean my kitchen sink and my flat top stove and it works great for them as well.

    Big fan all around

    Brightme3 (verified owner)

    This is such a wonderful product. The smell of natural cleansers is so much less harsh than something like windex, comet or fantasitk and still do a great job. The light but pleasant smell of this cleaner plus the scrubby and sudsiness make cleaning my bathroom a semi-enjoyable experience that I can walk away from without my nose hairs feeling like they’ve been singed by harsh, toxic chemicals. Love it.

    Little bit does a lot

    Kim (verified owner)

    Works great, smells wonderful and I feel better using it instead of harsh chemical cleaners. My hands don’t need to be scrubbed clean of a bleach smell yet this cleans as though you bleached! Highly recommend.

    Perfect scrub

    heather.n.bruns (verified owner)

    I LOVE this stuff! I usually just use baking soda and vinegar but I decided to treat myself with this scrub and now I’m hooked. It smells amazing and it’s just really nice to clean the kitchen sink with. It motivates me to actually follow through with chores I don’t want to do. Love Meliora and their commitment to sustainability!

    I usually use baking soda and my all-purpose cleaner to scrub the bath, sinks, etc. but treated myself to this during the Earth day sale to try it out and it smells so nice! It motivates me to clean. The package is pretty small but a little product goes a long way so I think it’ll last me a long time.

    Great cleaner!

    elcampion210 (verified owner)

    Used this in my bathroom and it worked well and smelled even better. My bathroom smelled minty fresh instead of like a chemical when I was done. Instead of sprinkling it into the shower like the instructions said I found putting it on my spinge and wetting it to make a paste worked better.
