Everyone needs to do laundry. Humans attract dirt; they sweat, their clothes and linens need washing. Green advocates seek to leave as small a footprint from their life activities as possible. Now, there is a way to combine both with laundry products from Green Virgin Products.
Many consumer branded laundry detergents contain toxic ingredients. Examples of these ingredients include Diethanolamine, Quaternium-15, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and other chemicals that can negatively impact human skin and immune systems. Even some “green” products may contain ingredients that aren’t all natural.
Many laundry products also contain hidden substances added to produce a result such as “mildness.” Petrochemicals are added to reduce skin irritation, but in return, they produce contaminant by-products.
Efforts by consumer advocacy groups, such as Women’s Voices for the Earth, have met with some limited success in persuading leading laundry product manufacturers to reduce or eliminate some polluting chemicals.
There are safer alternatives available to consumers. Green Virgin’s Soap Nuts Liquid, contains natural, non-toxic ingredients; and does not contain even a trace of 1,4 Dioxane, a major hidden chemical pollutant.
Ken Marion, Founder of Green Virgin Products notes that “Soap Nuts Liquid is made with our USDA Certified Organic Sapindus Mukorossi Soap Nuts (a berry that grows on the Chinese Soap Berry Tree and has the highest saponin (surfactant) content of any plant). We extract the saponin using only water. We then remove all the solids and tannins and deodorize it. This is all done using high tech filters using no chemicals, only water. This is an important step and one that most of our competitors are not capable of.”
Using Liquid Soap Nuts by Green Virgin is one way to live a greener life. The product has a negative carbon footprint. One 8 oz. bottle cleans 120 laundry loads.
