Discovering the difference: detergents vs. natural laundry soaps

Descubriendo la diferencia: detergentes vs. jabones naturales de lavandería

When it comes to taking care of our clothes and keeping them clean, we usually resort to the most common products on the market, such as conventional detergents. However, in recent years there has been a growing interest in natural laundry soaps. These artisan products have conquered the hearts of those looking for a friendlier alternative with the environment, with their skin and with their health.

In this article, we'll explore the differences between natural laundry detergents and soaps, so you can make an informed decision when it comes to caring for and extending the life of your favorite clothes.


Conventional detergents have a mix of chemicals, such as surfactants, optical brighteners, and synthetic fragrances. These ingredients can be effective at removing stains and dirt, but can often irritate sensitive skin, cause allergies, and more. On the other hand, natural laundry soaps like those from Home Healthy Home are made primarily with organic and biodegradable ingredients. We use organic olive oil, along with other natural ingredients. This softer and more natural composition makes them a safe and environmentally friendly option. Read more about our ingredients.

Environmental impact

Conventional detergents typically contain harsh chemicals that are harmful to aquatic ecosystems once they are rinsed off and released into wastewater. In addition, the plastic containers in which they are presented are often difficult to recycle and contribute to the problem of contamination by plastic waste. On the contrary, our natural laundry soaps are biodegradable and harmless to the environment. Its natural ingredients break down easily, reducing its negative impact on bodies of water and the natural cycle of life. In addition, at Home Healthy Home we only use reusable glass bottles as many times as you want. Read more about our packaging .

Skin care

One of the biggest benefits of natural laundry soaps is their gentleness on the skin. Conventional detergents often contain harsh ingredients that can cause dryness, irritation, or itchiness for people with sensitive or allergy-prone skin. Also, artificial fragrances can leave chemical residues on clothes, which can trigger allergic reactions. Our natural soaps, on the other hand, are milder and less likely to cause skin irritation. Its natural formula and free of harsh chemicals is especially beneficial for those with sensitive skin or conditions such as dermatitis or eczema. At Home Healthy Home we are very sensitive to this problem, which is why we have a whole collection of products specially designed for people with skin sensitivity or other skin conditions. Discover the sensitive skin collection.


Ultimately, the choice between natural laundry detergents and soaps depends on your needs and values. If you are looking for an option that is more respectful of the environment, gentle on your skin and with natural ingredients, Home Healthy Home is your answer.
