Good Soaps Sustainable Dishwashing

An application to reduce palm oil demand

May 2021

Gallery Good Soaps Sustainable Dishwashing 1


Between 10-30% of ingredients in dishwashing liquids are made of oil. The detergent industry is a significant driver for palm oil demand. Biological dishwashing liquids - except Good Soaps - contain palm oil or other tropical oils. Palm oil plantations are among the main causes for slash and burn practices in tropical areas. Many species are endangered due the loss of habitat in rainforests. Good Soaps has pioneered in developing sustainable formulations based on European vegetable oil. Using European vegetable oil instead of palm oil reduces demand for tropical oil and helps to protect tropical rainforests. Due to the same application of Good Soaps' products, customers don't need to change their habits. In addition, Good Soaps produces highly concentrated products in order to increase efficiency and reduce packaging. As a result, consumers buy more active ingredients, less water and therefore less packaging. Good Soaps has invented entirely new formulations to replace palm oil with local raw material.
