Eco-Pioneer washing products are 100% pure and non-hazardous to the environment.
Eco-Pioneer products are designed to be simple, effective and environmentally sustainable. Besides being all natural and readily biodegradable, their washing powders leave a small ecological footprint. They are sourced from local suppliers and are minimally packaged in 100% recycled paper fibre boxes and printed with non-toxic, vegetable inks.
Eco-Pioneer is hydrated sodium borate, a mineral ore of interlocked chains of boron, hydrogen, oxygen, water and sodium. Eco-Pioneer borax is created from refining recovered ore from dried playa lake beds. A playa lake is one that fills with rain water then dries out leaving various salts. The deposits are refined by boiling the ore in water and adding carbonated soda which causes the borax to dissolve and impurities to settle out. The water borax mixture is poured off and cooled, allowing borax crystals to form.
Pure Borax (Sodium tetraborate decahydrate).
Washing Soda (sodium carbonate) is related to baking soda. It cuts through grease, softens water and disinfects. It can also be used in swimming pools to increase the pH level.
Before commercial cleaners and synthetic, chemical surfactants were introduced in the 1940s, the majority of household cleaning was performed by combining basic, natural ingredients, such as soap flakes, borax, washing soda and baking soda. These products may have required some additional "elbow grease", but they cleaned effectively and most importantly had little impact on the health of the user or the environment.
