Citrus-powered Dish Soap with Aloe
Non-toxic and biodegradable. A human and environmentally benign dishwashing liquid that is tough on grease but gentle on your skin.
Dermatologist recommended. Won’t irritate even the most sensitive skin. Aloe Vera has been added to this natural hypoallergenic formula to keep your skin smooth and soft use after use.
Contents: Water, natural based surfactants (derived from coconut and vegetable oils), orange oil, natural softeners made from plant fiber, Aloe and DMDMH.
And what, you may ask, is DMDMH? Water and natural plant extracts – the basis of our ingredients – can, over time, breed bacteria. This is the case with all natural, non-petroleum-derived cleaning products. DMDMH, or Dimethyl Dimethylol Hydantoin, is a synthetic preservative. It’s commonly used in detergent based formulations because it combines the benefits of broad spectrum antimicrobial activity with the ease of liquid handling. At our use level, it is non-irritating to eyes, skin and mucous membranes, retains its activity between pH 3-8 and is compatible with most personal care ingredients.
There ARE some natural bacteria fighters such as Tea Tree Oil, Rosemary and Vitamin E, but they are only effective against certain types of bacteria and only in very high concentrations. High concentrations of these substances may cause skin irritation and break down the effectiveness and stability of the product they’re supposed to be helping.
