I am so excited to share Buckaroo Organics with you all! I have been using and loving their laundry products over the past few months.
As someone with sensitive skin, laundry products that don't make my skin itchy or get rashes has been super hard. Y'all know I'm all about natural, organic anything, so this has been a huge plus for me! Even other "natural" laundry detergents I've used in the past have made my skin mad, so I am so thankful for Buckaroo Organics!
I wanted to first share how toxic mainstream laundry products are, they are some of the worst when it comes to ingredients that are bad for you.
Laundry detergents are typically full of dyes and toxic chemicals like phosphates and so many more irritants like added fragrance.
Bleach is well, bleach. I'm not sure who ever thought it would be a good idea to whiten the clothes we put on our body with the same thing we scrub our toilets with... it's just not good and a known skin, eye, and lung irritant.
And don't even get me started on dryer sheets. Do y'all know how bad those little things are for you? They have highly toxic ingredients known to cause cancer. Plus. they are terrible for the environment. Here's some ingredients typically known to be in dryer sheets that I just have to share:
Alpha Terpineol - can cause headaches, loss of muscular control, respiratory problems, central nervous damage
Benzyl Acetate - linked to pancreatic cancer
Benyl Alcohol -respiratory tract irrtant, central nervous system depressant, death (seems extreme and that should be enough right there, but we will keep going)
Camphor - causes central nervous disorders, confusion, and is easily absorbed through the skin
Chloroform - a known carcinogenic neurotoxin
Dichloroform - extreme carcinogenic solvent used to make paint thinners
Ethanol - central nervous damage, on the EPA's hazardous waste list
and so many more...
I don't share this to scare anyone, but I hope it provokes a change to live a lifestyle that is truly better for you and your body. Why should anyone risk getting a health issue over laundry?
I'm going to share some great alternatives for you.
Buckaroo Organics offers a hypoallergenic laundry detergent called 'Soapberry Suds'. It's derived naturally from a plant called Soapberries, which is a natural surfactant! There's no added fragrance, and it really doesn't have much of a scent, but the scent it does give off smells great! Buckaroo Organics is made in Montana (I grew up there so I love this about the company) and their products are always organic and a great sustainable option! Plus. you're supporting a small, women run biz!
The Soapberry Suds are sensitive skin approved, biodegradable, fragrance free, cloth diaper safe (for all you mamas), safe for HE machines, no sulfates or phosphates, non-toxic, dye and chemical free, no optical brighteners, eco-friendly packaging with 70% less plastic, vegan, and cruelty-free!
You're probably wondering how well it works...
I've been putting it to the test over the past couple months and can vouch that it is amazing! My clothes have never been softer, felt cleaner, and looked brighter! All without using toxic cleaning chemicals or having itchy skin! I am so impressed.
DRYER BALLS OVER DRYER SHEETS
Dryer balls are the best alternative to dryer sheets! Buckaroo offers dryer balls made from 100% New Zealand wool. I have been loving these because they give the best static free dry and help your clothes dry faster and evenly, cutting down on dry time!
I love adding essential oils to them to make clothes smell extra nice! I'll take about that next!
ESSENTIAL OILS FOR NATURAL FRAGRANCE
Buckaroo has a TON of amazing essential oils you can drop onto your dryer balls (or diffuse, etc) This is a great alternative to things like scent boosters that are full of toxic junk! Plus, you get to be creative with your scent combos! I personally love lemon + lavender, or straight up eucalyptus!
The essential oils are 100% organic and pure! I know there's always debates amongst "oilers" that only their company produces the most pure and potent oils, but rest assured, these are truly great oils. I've used big time companies oils and these are on the same level as those!
I hope y'all learned some great, informative things by reading this and are excited to jumpstart or continue your wellness journey with some natural laundry products!
I truly do highly recommend Buckaroo Organics, because as always, I would never share something that I didn't 100% love and use myself!
Cheers to good laundry days!
