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 soap flakes are manufactured by a process called saponification The term saponification is the name given to the chemical reaction that occurs when vegetable oil or animal fat is mixed with the strong alkali, sodium hydroxide, and heated. The products of the hydrolysis reaction are soap and glycerol. Once the soap solidifies it is ground into flakes. Eco-Pioneer only uses natural vegetable oils to create their soap flakes.

Great supplement to my ECOS laundry detergent. My husband and I wear natural deodorant that has a coconut oil base, and the deodorant residue and any stinkiness doesn't completely wash out from T-shirt underarms unless I use these soap flakes along with my detergent (haven't tried using only soap flakes alone). Clothes smell cleaner when I use 1/4 cup of this in a small load, even when washed in cold water.

I just switched over to this from regular detergent and love this! I use this to make my laundry detergent; I mix this with washing soda. My clothes have come out of the wash clean and smells good too. I also use this to make my own dish soap. I highly recommend this product. And I also appreciate the minimal packaging that this comes in. I have been researching for natural, eco-friendly, minimal packaging laundry detergent and this meets my expectations.

I bought the soap flakes for a 92 year old friend who was always reminiscing about the now defunct Ivory Snow Flakes she always loved and couldn't find a replacement. I surprised her with the Eco Pioneer package and she is so happy with the results ..... just like the old days!

I use the pure soap flakes with borax and washing soda to wash my clothes. In fact, I use the recipe on the box. That's what I use every time now and it works great! I don't need to use any softener. Though if my water would be considered "hard water", I would add baking soda during the last cycle. It would soften the water.
