Gentle yet strong: a sensitive, eco detergent that actually works

This gentle formula is a great solution for sensitive skin, natural fibers, and delicate clothes. It's our OG detergent. The one that started it all!

Sensitive Skin Friendly

Suitable For Babies & Pets

For Natural & Fine Fabrics

Half Loads & Small Loads

Good to know...
This detergent can be used on all fabrics, but we recommend it for natural fibers and delicates like silk, cashmere and wool. For intimates or other items that could snag, consider pairing it with our Mesh Washing Bag. And for heavily soiled clothes and athletic wear, check out our Oxi Booster Pods. Works with all machines, and mini-sized machines. Also great for handwashing!

Disclaimer: While we strive to make our packaging 100% eco-friendly, our bulk orders are still a work in progress.  Please be aware that while we continue to work on removing these components, bulk shipments will include a plastic bag and tape to avoid damage in transit.  We welcome any and all suggestions to improve these methods and appreciate your understanding as we continue to strive for a low waste solution!

What's in our pod

fragrance-free • dye-free • enzyme-free • phosphate-free • pthlalate-free • paraben-free • optical brightener-free • never tested on animals
You can (mostly) thank surfactants for making your laundry detergent effective. Surfactants are molecules with a unique chemical structure. One end of the molecule is attracted to dirt and stains, which helps pull the dirt out of the fabric. The other end of the molecule is attracted to water, which allows the loose dirt to become suspended in the water so it can be easily washed away. Soil, emulsified!
Not all superheroes wear capes. Our pod is made from a water soluble casing called Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH), which dissolves upon contact with water and is consumed by microorganisms. We’ve added a bittering agent for added safety for you, your family and your pets.
Alcohols, C12-16, ethoxylated (surfactant)*, glycerin (processing aid)*, C10-16 alkyl glucoside (surfactant)*, water (solvent), tetrasodium glutamate diacetate (chelator)*, lauramine oxide (surfactant)*, polyvinyl alcohol film (PVOH) with bittering agent (synthetic water soluble film)*. *Denotes plant or mineral origin.

A really good clean

Small loads? Smaller package!

Our laundry pods come in two sizes, so you can control how much you wash.

The Power of Small

Our small loads pod is the only half-sized pod out there. And with none of the *BS
(bad stuff).

Free & Clear

Artificial dyes and colors don't clean your clothing. Which is why our pods are naturally clear.

Perfectly Portioned

Using too much detergent leaves residue and can attract dirt to your clothes. Our pods make sure you don't overdo it.

Mess-Free Cleaning

Our Strong Seal pod technology keeps the active ingredients off your skin and prevents spills. No more sticky bottles or loose powder.

How to Use

1 pod = 1 small load

  • First, toss pod into the washer drum.
  • Then, add your armful of laundry
  • Next, choose your wash cycle.

Our powerful little pod will take care of the rest. We promise. (That’s why we have a risk-free trial.)

For best results: use dry hands and don't overfill your machine. After each use, close box and secure the child lock to keep your little ones and pets safe.

Just the right size.

I love the Small Loads size. We rarely have large loads of laundry to do and if we do, we can just add more. It is perfect for us.

Please add subscription shipping notification

I’m trying to give general feedback rather than leave a review. I like the product well enough that I’ve been using it for the last two years. What I don’t like is there isn’t an email notification prior to shipping a subscription order. I’d like the opportunity to delay a subscription order if I don’t need it yet, but I can easily do that if I don’t know the order is coming until it has already shipped. As it is, I’ve cancelled my subscriptions because I have too many boxes of detergent stacked in my laundry room.

These are great

I’ve used these for a couple of years now. I have a small front loading machine and these are perfect. I also love that the packaging is minimal and biodegradable.

Everything you could want in a pod

I found these pods as a result of wanting to reduce plastic AND keep a detergent that was good for my sensitive, eczema-prone skin. These are the easiest thing to use, and I love that they arrive in plastic-free packaging, too. They clean our clothes and leave them smelling fresh, albeit unscented. Win-win for both the environment and my skin!

Great small load product!

I love these minis. I was always frustrated at using a whole pod for a small load like say, a new red shirt or something. The chemical wastage didn't sit well with me, but nor did I want the stink of new shirt to linger (or the red to color shift at a later date). No one else makes mini pods to the best of my knowledge, so these will be bought again (admittedly the size I got will last a while!). Thanks!
