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.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

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

  • Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water]
  • 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.

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.

    Gets the Job Done

    ceciliarmendoza (verified owner)

    The stain remover gets the job done. It was able to remove some kitchen stains out of my white uniform like ketchup and oil and was even able to lighten some of the old dirt stains on the edges of my pants. It won’t be able to remove ALL stains, but otherwise it is good sustainable stain remover.

    Wouldn't use on light linens

    allnprce

    I haven’t found this product to be considerably effective towards removing stains. I recently used the stain stick to remove stains on a white comforter and pillow sheets, but when they came out of the wash, the stains were not completely removed and there was a light circle left around the stain almost as if the stain stick lifted the color of my sheets. I personally have not had luck a with this stain remover product.

    No match for the monthly monster

    RADOUGHERTY7 (verified owner)

    So mine came 100% package free which is cool, but I’m wondering if I was accidentally sent the other brand that Earth Hero carries, but this is what I officially bought so I’m just gonna assume it is correct. So without being too graphic, my period is not friendly and I ruin a lot of clothes. I was wearing a pair of rayon shorts (I always have the worst time with rayon getting messed up in the washer or staining) and…you know…and I came home, rubbed this bad boy all over, threw them in the wash and wa la! My shorts are like new. I highly recommend

      Hi, Jess! While this stain stick isn’t detergent, applying to the stain before handwashing the items is still effective at getting the stains out 🙂

    tiny

    dmossgirl

    This was much smaller than I expected it would be. I haven’t used it yet so this is not about the effectiveness, just wanted any other purchaser to be aware this is a very small bar of soap. If it works, it is probably still worth the price. Will update after using on a stain!

    Good so far!

    moonswing92 (verified owner)

    I’ve only used this once but was impressed! It did a great job with a grease stain and it’s so much more pleasant to use than harsher stain removal products.

    I was a little worried it wouldn’t work well and I’m trying to do small swaps that I can get my SO on board with. I am very happy to say that this one was a success

    Love this stain stick

    heather.n.bruns (verified owner)

    Gets out just about every normal stain you could think of. Got blood nose stains out of a handkerchief. I recommend this to save packaging waste.

  10. genevievethegrand

    It's pretty decent

    genevievethegrand (verified owner)

    It’s not a miracle in a stick, but it does seem to help. I got a few little tomato sauce spots on a white t-shirt and it helped to get rid of most of them (but didn’t quite get the prominent one that of course was front and center).

    Update: I was able to use this little bar to get some fairly set-in tree sap stains out of my roommates running shorts and I was very impressed. I guess it depends on the stain and the material, but I’ve been more successful than not getting stains out with this so would recommend!

    Not great

    lauren1 (verified owner)

    Unfortunately, I tried this using this on multiple stains and it only removed the barest, faintest stains and not any else. I was disappointed.

    Life changing! Takes out blood stains!

    Grace

    I’ve always been a huge tide to go girl and shout user for my stains. I wanted to try something more natural but was kinda skeptical! My boyfriend got a bloody nose over his pillowcase and I was avoiding cleaning it for weeks. Yesterday I tried the Meliora stain stick on it (not expecting much- it was a set in stain at that point) and ALL OF THE BLOOD CAME OUT!! All of it! I am so impressed, I will be buying these forever. Thank you thank you!!
