Plant-based detergent has more concentrated cleaning power, so you can use less in each wash and still reap the benefits. 
Our concentrated plant-based detergent dissolves quicker in the wash cycle without requiring excessive foaming action.

Fresh Linen + Mint Detergent: Saponified Coconut Oil, Citric Acid, Washing soda (Sodium Carbonate), Fresh Linen FO, Mint FO

  • Coconut Oil: Cleansing/antibacterial/antifungal properties which aids in stain removal. 

  • No Superfat Added: This prevents the likelihood of stain accumulation.

  • Sodium Bicarbonate: Detergent works more effectively & reduces bacteria. It can also neutralize odors by balancing pH levels and soften wash water so you can use less detergent and have it be more effective. 

  • Citric Acid:  Used to stabilize the soap in hard water so it won’t leave behind any soap scum. 

  • Essential Oils: Pure extractions from different parts of plants, such as from flowers, herbs, or roots. 

Our Detergent is made by  SWASTI Ayurveda , which is a daughter company of  Wanamandawe Ayurveda, a renowned Ayurveda product Manufactory of Sri Lanka. SWASTI Ayurveda was created by Anu Somaratne, an artist, self-taught soap-maker, & Ayurveda medical student.  


Step 1: Ingredients are added to form the batter

Step 2: Batter is poured into the mold and left aside to set

Step 3: The hardened soap is removed from the mould & grated 

Step 4: Grated laundry soap is mixed with sodium bicarbonate powder to create the final product

What's wrong with regular detergents?

  • Often made using synthetic cleaning agents and phosphates that may be toxic to the environment when they get into the soil and water supply. This would potentially pollute the earth, poison fish and disrupt the ecosystem. 
  • Fragrances added are often artificial & overpowering which can sometimes trigger allergies.
  • Not Gentle/Mild on skin - not great for people with sensitive skin. 
  • Most regular laundry detergents are packaged in non-reusable plastic
  • Not economical: You use up more detergent per load than you would with our concentrated plant-based detergent.

What sets the ging-home laundry detergent apart?

  • All ingredients used are  biodegradable . Our detergent is coconut oil based but does not include superfats. This prevents the likelihood of stain accumulation.
  • Coconut oil is naturally the most  cleansing  oil, and when paired with sodium bicarbonate, detergent works more effectively &  reduces bacteria  & is great for those with sensitive skin.
  • NO added colors  & all fragrances are derived from  essential oils and fragrance oils , both of which are pure extractions from different parts of a plant, such as flowers, herbs, or roots.
  • Our detergent dissolves easily in the washing machine &  doesn’t clump up  and/or attach to clothes being washed.
  • Sustainable,  Reusable Packaging  promoting waste-free living.
