I received Eco-Me Natural Plant Extract Dish Soap in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
There’s always a sink of dishes at my house. I really need to teach my children to make a sink of suds and wash their own plates, cups and utensils. Someday. I keep telling myself. So, while I’m still on dish duty, I’m saying goodbye to dirty dishes with an all-natural, earth-friendly soap that features food-grade plant-based ingredients. It’s surprisingly tough on grease on easy on my hands. It’s also non-toxic, which I think might be mighty important when it comes to dishes we eat off of regularly. I’m talking Eco-Me Natural Plant Extract Dish Soap !
The list of ingredients is pretty awesome:
- Coconut-derived Soap
Decyl Glucoside: a natural, non-ionic surfactant, from renewable plant raw materials
- Food-grade Emulsifier
Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate: a natural, food grade emulsifier derived from sodium salt of lactic acid.
- Plant-base Solubilizer
Caprylyl Capryl Glucoside: Mild, solubilizing non-ionic surfactant that is obtained from renewable vegetable origin.
- Radish Root
Leuconostoc: a natural preservative with antimicrobial benefits.
- Food-grade Preservative
Potassium Sorbate: a natural preservative from the potassium salt of sorbic acid, used to preserve food and skin care products.
- Plant Essential Oils
Cymbopogon Flexuosus Oil: Lemongrass oil is a natural antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent and a bactericide that acts like a natural preservative and fragrance.
The scent comes from essential oils, though they do offer an unscented version.
It’s free of petroleum derivatives, is biodegradable and has preservatives that are the safest preservatives possible.
It took a bit to get use to. It doesn’t have lots of suds like other brands of dish soap. There is a lather, just not an overload. I find the Eco-Me Natural Plant Extract Dish Soap works well, cleans my dishes, leaves a pleasant scent and doesn’t dry out my hands.
