We have 4 kids with sensitive skins, so we love our Original Unscented version.

But we believe if we need to pick scents, then essential oils from citrus fruits are the best choice for laundry.

Citrus fruit essential oils such as Lemon, Orange, and Grapefruit are natural disinfectant and will help to kill any bacteria that may be present on your clothing. They are natural fabric softeners and will help to keep your clothes looking and feeling their best.

They are also gentle on fabrics and will not damage clothes as some chemical cleaners can.

Ingredients: Coconut Soap with Goat Milk, Persimmon Fruit Extract, Amylase (Enzyme), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Cocamidopropylamine Oxide.

This is NOT a simple DIY household self-mixed laundry detergent. Example: Soap, Borax, Baking Soda, Washing Soda. That DIY formula will build up and ruin your washing machine. 


What is the difference between laundry detergent that contains enzymes and laundry detergent that doesn’t?

A laundry detergent that contains enzymes is a better detergent. The enzymes literally, eat away at the body proteins, that’s sweat, oils, etc that we leave on our clothes.

Is it Safe To Use For Baby’s Clothes?

All of our detergents are formulated to be tough on stains, but gentle on clothes, and this includes baby's clothing.  It is always a good idea to reference garment care instructions before washing.  Certain stains are best pre-treated prior to washing.


Is your Laundry Detergent Safe For Cloth Diapers?

It is safe to use on cloth diapers. This do not leave residues and maintain the integrity of cloth diaper fabrics over multiple uses.


What Are Optical Brighteners And Why Does FMS Not Use Them?

Optical brighteners are synthetic chemicals that make fabrics appear to glow in the presence of ultraviolet light. They don't have anything to do with getting things clean -- they're only added to detergents to make us think our laundry is brighter and whiter than it really is. Designed to intentionally remain behind on our clothes and linens, optical brighteners can rub off on our skin where they may cause a reaction that looks like sunburn. They're no fun for the environment either. Optical brighteners washed down our drains frequently survive wastewater treatment and escape into our lakes, rivers, and streams. Once there, they accumulate in fish.

What’s that smell? The problems with fragrances and scented or perfumed products

Fragrances commonly found in laundry products like laundry detergents, air fresheners, and dryer sheets sometimes contain hazardous chemicals. Hazardous Waste Management Program staff note that laundry products often contain ingredients like acetaldehyde, limonene, chloromethane, and acetone. These chemicals and others can especially impact people with asthma or people who have chemical sensitivities, as well. 

There is no requirement for companies or manufacturers to list all ingredients on labels. As a result, we’re not often aware of the chemicals in the products. Due to the mystery surrounding chemicals used in laundry product’ fragrances, we recommend caution with scented products. Instead, we suggest choosing safer alternatives without fragrances or perfumes for your laundry needs.

Why do you avoid adding Borax? 

Borax (also known as sodium tetraborate) is a salt mineral that is naturally occurring. However, just because something is naturally occurring does not mean it is automatically safe and healthy to use.

Borax is very harsh on the body, creating all types of irritation and organ damage over time of coming into contact with it.

Why do you avoid Washing Soda?

Washing soda (Sodium Carbonate) is no longer as widely used as it once was because it can be harsh on skin and can cause irritation or allergic reactions. It also requires a lot of water to be used effectively, which can be wasteful. Additionally, washing soda is not very biodegradable and can have a negative impact on the environment.

There are now many alternatives to washing soda that are more environmentally friendly and less harsh on skin, such as plant-based cleaning ingredients. These alternatives are also more widely available and affordable.

However, washing soda is still used in some industrial applications, such as water treatment and mining.

Why do you avoid Baking Soda?

Before going further, we have to warn you: adding vinegar or baking soda to the wash along with your laundry detergent increases the risk of poorer cleaning performance, as detergents are optimized for a specific pH level, which is altered by the presence of these two household additives in the wash.

You can use baking soda, but you may be left with a foamy mess and dirty clothes. Sodium bicarbonate is not effective like sodium carbonate for cleaning clothes. The bicarbonate(baking soda) is able to neutralize acids which might help to neutralize some stains but that is it.

Baking soda is neither a detergent nor a soap, so it is not very good at removing soil from fabrics.

It can neutralize many odors and it can be effective at removing some stains from non-porous surfaces, but as a laundry cleaner, it simply doesn’t clean very well at all.

Many people have complaints of itchy skin and their first thought is that their skin is dry and that they just need to apply some lotion. Or, they assume they're allergic to that new soap or body wash they've got in the shower. But consider this: if you're experiencing an itching sensation all over your body, not just on your hands, then the problem may just be with your laundry detergent.

The detergent you used to wash your clothes gets in the fabric and can rub off the clothing onto your skin. You would think this wouldn’t really affect your skin, but it could be the cause of your skin irritations. If your skin is extra sensitive to certain ingredients, it doesn't take much to irritate it.

We've got a solution for you, our Natural Laundry Detergent is natural, sensitive, and kind to your skin. On top of it all, it'll leave your clothes feeling and smelling fresh. 

This is NOT a simple DIY household self-mixed laundry detergent. Example: Soap, Borax, Baking Soda, Washing Soda. That DIY formula will build up and ruin your washing machine. 



Coconut soap is made by treating coconut oil with lye. But why coconut oil and not any other vegetable oil or even animal fat? The thing is, coconut oil is rich in saturated fatty acids (lauric and myristic), which, when saponified, exhibit excellent detergent properties and lather better than other saponified fats.

As a result, soap made from coconut oil is valued for its ability to lather and cleanse better than regular household soap, even in cold or hard water. By the way, sailors used to use coconut soap bars a lot to wash their clothes and clean the deck because coconut soap lathers well in salty seawater and lasts long.

Of course, most people today don’t have to wash their clothes or dishes in seawater, but hard water is a common issue. While it poses no health threat, hard water makes it hard (pun not intended) for regular soap to lather. This is why coconut soap is still popular. Besides, it has other benefits, even when compared to innovative household cleaning products.

First of all, coconut soap is an all-purpose household cleaner. You can use it for cleaning various surfaces, washing dishes, and even washing fruit and vegetables, and it will cope with all these tasks perfectly.

Secondly, coconut soap is completely biodegradable because it is made with just three ingredients – coconut oil, lye, and goat milk. This means that the soap is safe for the environment and can be used in houses with a septic system. 

YOU CAN BUY COCONUT GOAT MILK SOAP BAR here for another purposes.

We can't just liquify and use Coconut Soap  as laundry detergent. That formula will build up and damage your washing machine  



What Is Amylase?

Amylase is a naturally occurring enzyme that increases the breakdown of starches and carbohydrates.Outside of personal care and cleaning products, amylase is used in a variety of industries, including brewing, distilling, baking, animal feeds, sewage treatment, and as digestive aids.

What Does Amylase Do?

Amylase is a mix of enzymes that make the hydrolysis of glycosidic linkages of polysaccharides. It breaks starch-based soil down to simpler forms for removal by detergents.It is also a skin conditioner and is found in thousands of products, including sunscreen, laundry detergent, and other items.

Is Amylase Safe?

Studies show amylase is generally non-irritating and non-sensitizing to the skin and eyes.

How Amylase Is Made

Amylase can be produced by plant, animal or microbial sources, including barley and rice, as well as Bacillus spp. B. amyloliquefaciens and B. licheniformis. The aspergillus and penicillium are other sources. Submerged fermentation and solid state fermentation are the two main methods of production. Submerged fermentation uses liquid substrates, such as molasses and broths, along with microorganisms, such as bacteria that require high moisture content for their growth. Solid-state fermentation uses microbes that require less moisture for their growth, including bran, bagasse, and paper pulp.


Persimmon Fruit Extract is derived from the Persimmon fruit which is highly nutritious and rich in Vitamin C 

It removes oxidized sebum, dirt. In Japan persimmon soap is often used as a solution to the dreaded old person smell (known in Japanese as kareishū 加齢臭) where it is of particular concern due to the high value placed on personal hygiene.

Japanese persimmon is known for its anti-odor properties. This purifying and deodorizing ingredient eliminates odors associated with hormonal imbalances, menopause and nonenal odor that is often associated with aging.

This Detergent contains high levels of persimmon tannin extracted from persimmon fruit. The tannin in persimmon fruit helps to abolish nonenal chemicals associated with old body smell and has a deodorant effect, acting to reduce body odor associated with seniors.

Persimmon leaf sushi has an antibacterial and deodorant effect. The persimmon tannin in it is believed to have a deodorant effect when it chemically reacts with body odor.


Cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB) is a chemical compound found in many personal care and household cleaning products. CAPB is a surfactant, which means that it interacts with water, making the molecules slippery so they don’t stick together.

When water molecules don’t stick together, they are more likely to bond with dirt and oil so when you rinse away the cleaning product, the dirt rinses away, too. In some products, CAPB is the ingredient that makes lather.

Cocamidopropyl betaine is a synthetic fatty acid made from coconuts


Sodium Coco Sulfateis a coconut oil-derived alternative to sodium laurel sulfate (SLS), a common additive in soaps, detergents and other personal. It does seem to be a safer, gentler (it is the primary sulfate used in baby shampoos). We like the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) certification for surfactants; sodium coco-sulfate is rated a "1," this is the highest safety rating EWG gives.  

Sulfates are on most people’s list of ingredients to avoid. But not all sulfates were created equal. 

Why do we use it in formulations?

It offers fantastic, fluffy, super-abundant lather and is a strong cleanser.


Ample, rich lather and strong cleansing/de-greasing.



Cocamidopropylamine Oxide is a coconut-oil based non-ionic surfactant. 32% active substances. Effective foam-boosting surfactant offering excellent conditioning, thickening and stabilizing performance. Very mild on the skin. Unaffected by acid and hard water. Compatible with anionic, cationic, amphoteric and non-ionic surfactants.
