I’ve written about The Honest Company before. It is an online store that sells its own personal, baby, and home care products that are all natural and cruelty free. It is an amazing company with an incredible philosophy. Check out its principles and prepare to be impressed.
I have been using its laundry detergent for a few weeks now, and I am loving it. You know how when you find a natural or cruelty-free product that could replace a standard product you already use and all you’re really hoping for is that it doesn’t suck? Like, it never crosses your mind that it could be better than the synthetic products you already use, but you’re willing to sacrifice to use a product you believe in? Well, I am happy to report that that’s not the case with this laundry detergent.
I have one of the high efficiency washers, so it’s hard to find eco-friendly and cruelty-free detergent that I can use in it. Happily, the Honest Company laundry detergent is safe for high efficiency machines. It works well, smells nice, and is free of “SLS, synthetic perfume, glycol, enzymes, dyes, phosphates, 1,4-dioxane, chlorine, DEA, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, caustics, and optical brighteners.”
It’s a bit on the expensive side ($12.95 for 70 fl. oz.), but it really does work just as well as synthetic laundry detergents, so it’s worth it to me. That being said, I will probably rotate it out with other, cheaper laundry detergents from Seventh Generation and Ecover.
