Laundry Detergent to Save the Planet: KIBI WASH!

Hello, I'm TEMBUSU, a member of the organic market! This is Tembusu, the organic market!

Today, we would like to introduce a new product|KIBI WASH, a laundry detergent that saves the earth!

KIBI WASH" is a new laundry detergent made from the "ash" generated when sugarcane pomace from sugar refineries is used to boil down sugar. Unlike conventional eco-friendly detergents, this laundry detergent is gentle to Okinawa's oceans by building an eco-cycle from the business model stage.

Conventional synthetic detergents are made from petroleum, which is not biodegradable and water pollution is a problem. In addition, approximately 70% of water pollution to marine life is caused by domestic wastewater from households. On the other hand, eco-friendly detergents are made from palm oil, which is produced in Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, where many forests are cut down to expand farmland and plant palm trees. The unfortunate result is that even if we use this product thinking it is environmentally friendly, it will continue to increase CO2 emissions and deforestation.

KIBI WASH, an ethical laundry detergent born in Okinawa that does not use a drop of oil

One of the main features of "KIBI WASH" developed by ORION COSMETICS is that it is an ethical laundry detergent that does not use any oil as a raw material and gives maximum consideration to the environment.

1) Ingredients: Water and ash only (no oil)

(2) Ashes are reused residues (ashes) from sugar factories in Okinawa Prefecture.

(3) Reduced transportation energy by manufacturing and using it in Okinawa Prefecture

However, some may be concerned about the cleaning power, but don't worry about that. The mechanism of KIBI WASH is that the alkali reacts with the sebum (fat) on the clothes during washing to produce soap in the washing machine, which removes the dirt.

How to use "KIBI WASH

KIBI WASH" can be used in the same way as general laundry. KIBI WASH can be used for washing cotton, linen, wool, and synthetic fabrics.

Usage guideline

3.0 kg of laundry, 45 L of water → 15 ml

4.5kg of laundry, 60L of water → 20ml

6.0kg of laundry, 65L of water → 25ml 

Unlike conventional synthetic detergents, this product looks like a silky liquid. Sediment may appear, but it is part of the active ingredients. Please shake well before use.

It feels good to be able to save the earth with our daily casual actions!

Also, recently there are more and more people who say that even eco-friendly detergents affect their skin and mood, so if you are interested, please give it a try!
