All Natural Soap Flakes

 

At The ANSC, we work our magic to transform waste into wonder!

All Natural! 

Our All Natural Soap Flakes are made only of natural plant oil goodness and packed in sustainable packaging, ensuring hundreds of plastic bottles are saved from becoming landfill! Made up of off cuts from our all natural soaps, they are ground down into handy flakes that can be used for all types of cleaning purposes.

What makes our All Natural Soap Flakes better than conventional detergents?

Firstly, chemicals used in conventional detergents often leave a residue on our clothes and linens that can easily be absorbed by our skin. Washing powder is often overlooked as a product that is not used directly on our skin. However, every time we do a load of laundry with conventional detergents, we are putting ourselves in contact with chemical we would never dream of using on our bodies. These chemicals have the potential to pose a range of health risk that may including but not limited to allergies, headaches, nausea and contact dermatitis.

As well as the risks these chemicals in conventional detergents pose to ourselves and families, they also have an impact on our environment after use. Millions of tons of detergents are used every day ending up in our waterways and are toxic to aquatic life. If the toxic fragrances weren’t enough, conventional laundry detergents also contain phosphates, sulphates, ammonia, naphthalene, phenol, optical brighteners, EDTA, and more. These chemicals also can be harmful to our health as well as have long term toxic effects on the environment.

Lastly, its important to consider the amount of energy, natural resource and waste that is involved in the mass production and transportation of billions of gallons of plastic packaged, toxic laundry detergents. This is a factor that ourselves as a small footprint family, is just too significant to ignore.

 "I feel like I use about a kilo of these some days, washing all my daughter’s clothes and nappies and using the cleaning gel means it works on pretty much anything. We’ve been using our soap offcuts for years in this way in our house so it makes me so happy that they have become one of our most popular products." – Emma
