Meliora Cleaning ProductsThen we have good news for you! We’ve just certified the first MADE SAFE™ cleaning products in the world: soap flakes and laundry powder from Meliora Cleaning Products.

Why is this a big deal? Household cleaning products have come under fire in recent years for commonly containing chemicals linked to fertility problems, birth defects, increased risk of breast cancer, hormone disruption, and respiratory problems.[1] Laundry detergent in particular can be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, a known carcinogen listed on California’s Proposition 65 list.[2] What’s more, ingredients aren’t required by law to be listed on cleaners, leaving consumers in the dark on toxic chemicals and how to choose safer products.
