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 Pets

For Natural & Fine Fabrics

For Delicates & Intimates

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.

What's in our pod

dye-free • enzyme-free • phosphate-free • phthalate-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!
Did you know that it takes one metric ton of rose petals to make just one teaspoon of essential rose oil? Sometimes “all-natural” doesn’t equal “sustainable.” We use a balance of natural and synthetic fragrances for better sustainability.
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)*, fragrance, eucalyptus globulus leaf (eucalyptus) oil (fragrance ingredient)*, eugenia caryophyllus leaf (clove) oil (fragrance ingredient)*, pogostemon cablin (patchouli) oil (fragrance ingredient)*, lemon terpenes (fragrance ingredient)*, polyvinyl alcohol film (PVOH) with bittering agent (synthetic water soluble film)*. *Denotes plant or mineral origin.

Small Package, Big Results

Our pods make laundry day mess-free and, dare we say, easy.

The Power of Small

Ours is a touch tinier than average. That’s because we ditched all the excess water and unnecessary 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 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.

Sensitive Skin is Tough!

I was pleased that I can wash my delicates with this line. I was concerned it might not clean as well as my usual product, but no worries at all.

Convenient & Safe

I have been using Dropps laundry detergent pods for a year now and I couldn't be happier. I signed up for the subscription so I know I will always have it when needed. As I have gotten older, my skin has gotten more sensitive and quite a few detergents have caused me to break out in a rash. This one does not do that. There is no fragrance. It just smells clean and I like the fact that it is non-toxic and safe for the whole family.

Works well

We’ve been using this for our whole family for over a year now. I like the light scent, cleans well, and sensitive enough for our 4 month old.

Fresh Air, fresh laundry

Once I read the directions and started using the pouch for cold water washes, this is my absolute favorite detergent for all washes! It does a great job, smells wonderful without being overly powerful and does not make me itch like some other detergents do! All that and no plastic involved makes this a top shelf buy! Thank you Dropps!

Switched detergents

I was using another eco friendly brand, but switched to drops because it made me clothes smell and look cleaner! Love the convenience of ordering too, as I can choose the quantity and frequency- a win win for a busy mom with lots of things to wash!

FAQ about Sensitive Skin Laundry Detergent

Our Stain + Odor laundry detergent formulas contain enzymes to fight stubborn stains. Enzymes are molecules that target the removal of one type of molecule, like proteins or starch. For those with eczema, psoriasis or allergies, we always recommend using a fragrance-free, dye-free, and enzyme-free detergent like our Sensitive Skin & Baby formula.
