Our Ingredients: What’s Inside Matters

Everything we put in our homes and on our bodies affects our health and the health of the planet. That’s why we obsess over every single ingredient.


Dishwasher Tablets Ingredients

Water Soluble Film
  • • Thin, eco-friendly film that encases each and every tablet in a concentrated dose of clean.
  • • A non-toxic synthetic polymer (aka many, many molecules strung together).
  • • Dissolves in water and is 100% biodegradable.
  • • Safe for you and the world, not safe for those dirty dishes.
Glycerin
  • • A holding agent that keeps tablets packed together until it’s time to unleash their cleaning powers.
  • • Derived from plant-based oils.
Table Salt
  • • Everyone's favorite mineral, here to fight oil, grease, and other stains
  • • The same all natural salty salt you sprinkle so generously on fries
Granulation Excipient
  • • A binding agent that helps keep tablets in tip-top shape.
  • • It’s all about timing: this allows the ingredients to release at the right time during the wash cycle window.
Sodium Citrate Dehydrate
  • • Sounds intimidating but is really just salt from citric acid, used to help control our solution’s PH and acidity.
  • • Also hanging out in your grocery store, in items like yogurt, jams, processed cheeses, and wines.
Plant Extract
  • • The light and sunny scent that accompanies our clean. Smells like spring.
  • • Made of natural oils drawn directly from plants.
  • • Makes your wash cycle smell nice but not so nice you can’t breathe.
Sodium Percarbonate
  • • A whitening agent that’s tough on the nasty stuff but gentle on the nice stuff (the earth, your skin, your eyes).
  • • Mineral-based powder created from combining hydrogen peroxide and washing soda.
Sodium Silicate
  • • A natural preservative that extends our tablets’ shelf life so they last long after they arrive at your doorstep.
  • • A mineral-based compound used in food preservation and more.
Soda Ash
  • • A potent water softener that works its magic on grease, oil, and wine stains.
  • • A naturally-occurring mineral.
Surfactants
  • • Separates stains out from your dishes, making room for a thorough clean.
  • • Our mix stars these four non-naturally occurring alcohols: C16-18, ethoxylated, isotridecanol, and 3-5 EO.
  • • Created through a chemical process and commonly used in cleaning solutions, plant protection, and more.
Polycarboxylates
  • • This member of the clean team helps kick dirt to the curb.
  • • A group of mineral-based compounds.
Alpha Amylase
  • • A gunk-reducing tool that breaks down grime every time.
  • • A naturally occurring enzyme found in plants (and humans! Whoa!).
  • • We extract ours from bacteria in soil.
Subtilisin
  • • A grease fighter that tells stains to get outta your stuff firmly (but politely).
  • • An enzyme obtained from bacteria that typically hangs out in soil.
  • • Non-toxic for humans and the environment, totally toxic for stubborn stains.
