Why All Natural Detergent?
By using All Natural Laundry Detergent you can protect your skin, clothes, and Mother Nature.
Conventional detergents are loaded with all kinds of ingredients, including chemicals, that we should be very wary of washing our clothes in. Clothes we then wear against our skin, which those chemicals can be absorbed into our bodies.
Many of the cleaning chemicals in major brand detergents are petroleum based. They cause environmental damage to rivers and lakes, and the aquatic life that lives there, and are endocrine disruptors that can affect our metabolisms, reproduction, and growth. These disruptions can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects, and other developmental disorders.
The fragrance in conventional detergents are often made up of phthalates, which are endocrine and hormone disruptors and can affect both normal reproductive development and infertility, and they are also air and water pollutants.
“Fragrance-Free” conventional detergent isn’t actually completely fragrance free because it’s not a term that is regulated. Because fragrance often has to be added to cover up the smell of the chemicals, even “fragrance-free” products still contain small amounts of fragrance in them.
Most of the name brand laundry detergents that are on the market contain things such as phenols, optical brighteners, phosphates, and artificial fragrances. These items do not come in small doses, either. All of the toxic ingredients listed can be found in very high concentrations inside of conventional laundry detergent. All of these are bad for you and for the Earth. If you are exposed to these chemicals for prolonged periods of time, you can develop allergies to various laundry detergents.
Amazingly enough, most of those harmful chemicals are not even necessary to clean your clothes. They are only added so that your clothes will be brighter and whiter to the eye.
While All Natural Laundry detergent is often more expensive, the benefits far outweigh the costs. First and foremost, natural laundry detergent is much better for your skin than traditional detergent. It does not contain the same harmful chemicals as the name brand detergents on the market.
Natural detergent also contributes to a healthy planet. All Natural Laundry Detergent is biodegradable and lacks petroleum.
Perhaps the most appealing thing about natural detergents is that although some are pricey, you can find them at the same price as many of the major bands. Salt of the Earth All Natural Laundry Detergent only costs 35 cents per load!
