Sappy Personal Story Alert: For the past 7 years my children have suffered from eczema and everywhere I looked were chemicals in our home. For some reason the laundry detergent I purchased at a baby store, had a baby on the cover so I assumed it was safe! 7 years later I find out exactly what is in it... and I'm horrified at what other things I may not know.
Product Details: Laundry powder for 128 HE (64 Standard) Loads comes in a cardboard/steel canister and is easy to recycle or reuse. Comes with or without a scoop. Next time you order, choose the refill pack that comes in a paper bag. This will help you save some money and waste! We always love that!

Nerd Alert: More Detailed Information On Ingredients:
Sodium Bicarbonate: Also known as baking soda, sodium bicarbonate is an odor neutralizer.
Sodium Carbonate: Also known as washing soda or soda ash, sodium carbonate is a pH adjuster. It raises the pH of the washing water, which results in more effective cleaning. For this reason, it's often referred to as a laundry 'booster'.
Sodium Cocoate: This is the chemical name of saponified (that is, 'made into soap') coconut oil. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.
Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirt.
Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil: There is a small amount of coconut oil left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Some soapmakers refer to this as 'superfatting' and more oil remaining results in a softer, more moisturizing soap. Our coconut soap has only a small amount of excess oil, so it is not the luxurious body type and more of a 'get the job done' soap.
Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process as a substance that dissolves lye and then is a medium so the lye can reach all of the oil to react. After being useful in this process, the water is allowed to evaporate from the soap over a period of several weeks, and the resulting dried soap has very little water. There is only about 5% water remaining in the finished soap, thus making it more shelf-stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high (about 60%) water.
