Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate is a cleaning agent, or "surfactant," that is one of a group of ingredients commonly used in bath products, cleansing products, shampoos and hair conditioners. We use it in our products to remove dirt and deposits. In its liquid form, as we use it, it surrounds dirt particles to loosen them from the surface to which they are attached.

Sodium laureth sulfate is a cleaning agent, or "surfactant," that can also be found in toothpastes, shampoos, lathers and bubble baths. We use it in our products to remove dirt and deposits by surrounding dirt particles to loosen them from the surface they're attached to, so they can be rinsed away.
Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a cleaning agent that can be found in shampoos, bubble baths and shower gels. We use it in our products to remove dirt and deposits, by surrounding dirt particles to loosen them from the surface they're attached to, so they can be rinsed away.
Sodium citrate is a builder that can also be found in various household products including shampoos, mascara and lipstick. We use it to make a product formula clean better by affecting the molecules in the formula so they work together better. It can also be used as a stabilizer that maintains the clarity of the product and protects its pH. The pH of a formula can affect how long it lasts within a container – for example limiting its tendency to corrode a can, container or dispenser. To ensure product performance, it is important that our product formulas maintain their stability over time.
Kathon™ (methylchloroisothiazolinone & methylisothiazolinone) is a preservative. It helps maintain product quality and performance over time. Some people raise concerns about preservatives, because a small number of individuals have allergies to them just as some people have allergies to nuts or bees. But preservatives play a very important role in food, cosmetics and household products. Without preservatives, many products would not last more than a week or two before being contaminated by bacteria, mold or yeast. So, we feel the best choice is to add preservatives in the smallest effective quantity to protect our products, but to list these preservatives in our formulas so that those with allergies in the family can make informed choices.
Urea is a moisturizer that can be found in skin creams, conditioners and dish soaps. We add moisturizers to our dish soaps because of its water-binding and exfoliating properties.
Sodium benzoate is a corrosion inhibitor as well as a widely used food preservative. We use it to help keep the contents of a product fresh and prevent the corrosion or rusting of a can, container or dispenser.
Sodium chloride is a carrier that is most commonly known as table salt, and can also be found in many household products including shampoos, makeup and bath products. A carrier does just what it sounds like - it helps carry a product to a surface by thinning or thickening the formula or simply ensuring even distribution of the other ingredients in the formula. We use sodium chloride because without a carrier, the product would not work with the same consistency across a surface.
