The range

Presented in a large amber bottle, it is the natural and artisanal laundry par excellence.

Its simple formula is naturally washable: contains up to 12% of liquid soap - a component inexistent in the regular detergent - and is formulated without the additives used in many detergents on the market. Being very soft for the linen, there is no point in adding softener.

It respects all types of textiles, even the most delicate ones (wool, silk...), for a hand or machine wash. It is effective on colour, black or white and at all temperatures from 20°C up to 95°C. It allows 22 washes, for a moderately dirty linen and a little hard water.

Its presentation in amber and silkscreen soft plastic bottle make it a beautiful product that you do not need to hide in the laundry room. A nice idea for a useful and original gift! Lightly opaque, the bottle retains all the olfactory quality of the perfume concentrate.
