Cleaning products have perpetually frustrated me. They aren't required to disclose comprehensive ingredient listings like personal care products. Nearly all will include only vague descriptions like: "non-ionic surfactant," which are pretty much no help at all.
Even the cleaner product lines, like Seventh Generation and Ecover, don't provide full disclosure. Then Green Shield Organics waltzed into my life. This company was founded on the principle of creating green cleaning products with complete ingredient listings. When their laundry detergent arrived on my doorstep I was so excited I could not wait to do a big heaping pile of laundry. Yes, seriously.
Green Shield Organics creates a laundry detergent without harsh detergents, synthetic dyes, questionable preservatives, fragrance or petroleum products. But the best part is what they put in their products:
Green Shield Organics Free and Clear Laundry Detergent Ingredients:
Water, Cocos Nucifera (Saponified Organic Coconut Oil), Sapindus Mukorossi (Organic Soap Nuts), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder (Organic Aloe Vera), Glycerin (Organic), Sea Salt, Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cyamopsis Tetragonoloba Gum (Organic Guar Gum), Acacia Senegal Gum (Organic Acacia Gum), Xanthan Gum, Quillaja Saponaria (Organic Soap Bark).
It's nearly too good to be true. And I'm happy to report, after my behemoth pile of laundry, I know it works. To top it all off, they sell fantastic bathroom, kitchen and all purpose cleaners as well.
