Eco-Pioneer washing products are 100% pure and non-hazardous to the environment.
Eco-Pioneer products are designed to be simple, effective and environmentally sustainable. Besides being all natural and readily biodegradable, their washing powders leave a small ecological footprint. They are sourced from local suppliers and are minimally packaged in 100% recycled paper fibre boxes and printed with non-toxic, vegetable inks.
Eco-Pioneer is hydrated sodium borate, a mineral ore of interlocked chains of boron, hydrogen, oxygen, water and sodium. Eco-Pioneer borax is created from refining recovered ore from dried playa lake beds. A playa lake is one that fills with rain water then dries out leaving various salts. The deposits are refined by boiling the ore in water and adding carbonated soda which causes the borax to dissolve and impurities to settle out. The water borax mixture is poured off and cooled, allowing borax crystals to form.

This is a great alternative to bleach for white and very light coloured clothing and linens. Caution: don't use this on darker items; it will fade the colour. I found this out the hard way by adding it to a dark wash; my jeans faded. Other than that, great chemical-free product!
