Biokleen & Seventh Generation: Sneaky Stuff

I’m sure many of you have seen that the Environmental Working Group has at last launched their Guide to Healthy Cleaning; it’s awesome! EWG’s Skin Deep Database is a wonderful (if overwhelming) tool for determining the safety of cosmetics, and the Healthy Cleaning site makes finding safe household cleaning products less confusing, although it’s still overwhelming.

I was happy to see that BabyGanics, Ecover, and Mrs. Meyers were given poor scores (D’s and F’s in many cases). Natural living bloggers and natural product stores (our competition, you could say!) recommend or sell these products, and Gimme the Good Stuff has been alone in calling them out as Sneaky.

One brand that I have long considered among The Good Stuff is Biokleen. Specifically, we have recommended their laundry detergent and their dish soap.

Keep in mind that EWG found only ONE dish soap that scored an A, and only three that earned a B. (To see what they are, see our newly updated Dish Soap Shopping Guide).

Stay sane,

  1. This article from 2012 really needs an update. Things have really gone downhill at BioKleen and Ecover, and EWG has also not kept up on what it says about Ecover. Both company’s have gone to Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in dish soap and laundry soap.

    BioKleen Laundry Soap currently 12/26/19 lists:
    “Water (filtered), Laureth 7, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Lauramine Oxide, Glycerin (vegetable-based), Sodium Chloride, Sodium Carboxymethyl Inulin (plant based chelant), Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, C10-16 Alcohols (plant based)”
