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*, glycerin*, alkyl (C10-16) ether sulfate, sodium salt*, water, polyethylene glycol monododecyl ether*, polyvinyl alcohol film (PVOH) with bittering agent. *Denotes plant or mineral origin.

Small loads? Smaller package!

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

Free & Clear

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.

Great stuff!

I’m so pleased that I have the option to use smaller or larger pods since there are only two of us home now and most loads are small. I use the Sensitive Skin formula whenever I launder anything I’m more careful about, which is most of my clothes; for most of my husband’s stuff I use the stain-fighting pods. I have some larger pods for when the kids come to visit. All of our linens and clothes continue to look bright and clean. I love not buying big jugs of laundry detergent.

4 Stars, because 5 is high bar!

Really enjoy using this product! Much better then pouring in the liquid detergent from a heavy plastic bottle. So far have had only one packet failure after a month of laundry.

Best option

These are perfect for small loads such as rugs & dog beds! I don’t want any essential oils in my dog beds, so these check all the boxes- small load & scent-free. Easy to use & everything comes out clean & fresh.

Just as promised

The regular and « baby » (small load) pods perform exactly as Dropps says they will. They work, the packages replace plastic and are recyclable (in our case, burnable), and they take up very little room.

Work great and a relief to not have the huge plastic jug

I have been using Small Loads Sensitive Skin & Baby Laundry Detergent Pods, Unscented for the last six months and they have been great. I admit my clothes aren't as dirty as they would have been in the past ( lived on a farm), but I do pretty large loads and they come out fine. I do pretreat some mud stains to be safe (still live in a rural area with some animals) but those were always a problem with even regular commercial detergent. Will probably add Oxi Booster in my next order to see how that works for extra soiled items.

I absolutely LOVE this product!

Perfect in every way - convenient pod - small load size perfect for me - and best of all, it doesn't irritate sensitive intimate areas! No scent but laundry comes out smelling clean & fresh. The only negative: I cannot buy the Small Load size of Sensitive Skin & Baby Laundry Detergent Pods on Amazon. If so, I could subscribe and have the product delivered on an automatic basis. JR

Love these!

I have a teeny tiny portable washing machine in my tiny apartment and these are perfect! I do let them dissolve in hot water for like 15 minutes before I add them, but that is just my machine. Really love these and so much cheaper and easier than buying regular liquid detergent

So happy I found these!

I am very happy with my decision to switch my son’s Dreft baby detergent to these. They are clean, affordable, last longer than bottled detergent, less wasteful and are just easy! What more could a tired mama ask for?
