Why Non Toxic
Non Toxic VS. Conventional Detergents
Why Non Toxic? It's a good question! We didn't know why when we first started on this journey either. Then, we stumbled on a dirty truth. This truth, that there are harmful ingredients in our soap!
If you look at the back of a laundry detergent bottle, there aren't any ingredients listed.
There is a reason that the bigger companies refuse to list the ingredients. Here are a couple of our favorites. 1,4 Dioxane which is found in most conventional detergents. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that 1,4-dioxane is possibly carcinogenic to humans.The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) considers 1,4-dioxane as reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. The EPA has established that 1,4-dioxane is likely to be carcinogenic to humans.When asked how the chemicals enters the body, Studies have found that some 1,4-dioxane can pass through skin.
Another favorite of ours is Surfactants. They contain quaternium-15(known to release formaldehyde, a known carcinogen), diethanolamine (linked with skin and eye irritation and possibly liver problems), nonlphenol ethoxylate or NPE (toxic to nerves, irritating to skin, potential hormone disruptor, toxic to aquatic life), linear alkyl benzene sulfonates or LAS (irritating to skin and eyes and toxic to aquatic life; benzene on its own is a carcinogen), and petroleum distillates (linked to cancer and lung damage).
This is just the beginning of a laundry list of potentially extremely harmful chemical! Why worry about all of these chemicals on your skin?
