Top 4 Reasons to Use a Biodegradable Laundry Detergent

How can enzymes in the best natural cleaning products clean your clothes better than conventional detergents? What’s the difference between them? Here we’ll explore the amazing world of biodegradable enzymatic laundry detergents and discover how you can clean your clothes completely using the power of enzymes.


Biodegradable enzymatic detergents generally use two different types of enzymes — substances produced by a living organism which act as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction — to clean your clothing. These are usually lipase and protease enzymes, which create a powerful all-natural stain remover. Lipase enzymes attack fat- and oil-based stains and grime while protease enzymes attack protein chains. The cleaning residues then rinses away easily. Between the two, they will get your clothing squeaky clean. Some enzymatic biodegradable cleaners also contain amylase, which works on starch stains, and cellulase. These fight particulate soil and help prevent cotton graying and fabric pilling. Here are the top three reasons to use an enzymatic laundry detergent:


  • Your clothing is right next to your skin.

Because biodegradable enzymatic detergents contain no harsh chemicals like conventional detergents, they are an optimal choice for all skin sensitivities. While you may have heard that some enzymatic cleaners can irritate sensitive skin, Natura Solutions Laundry Detergent Concentrate is formulated for all skin types. Since your clothing is right next to your skin almost all the time, it’s important to select detergents that are going to do a great job fighting dirt and stains — not your delicate skin biome. 

  • Biodegradable enzymatic cleaners work at least as well as conventional laundry detergents.

Biodegradable enzymatic cleaners work at least as well, if not better than, many conventional laundry detergents. In a major consumer testing panel, top enzymatic biodegradable cleaners ranked neck-and-neck with top conventional cleaners. Additionally, biodegradable cleaners work better in cold water than conventional detergents do, making the best natural cleaning products the best overall cleaning products for the eco-conscious consumer. 

  • Biodegradable cleaners contain no toxic ingredients.

While conventional detergents contain a laundry list of toxic ingredients such as chlorine bleach, formaldehyde, sulfates, benzenes, fragrances, dyes, sanitizers, and much more, enzymatic cleaners contain no toxic ingredients, making them safe to keep around the home. This also makes them considerably less appealing to ingest or play with than the brightly-colored conventional “pac” style detergents. Our Eco-friendly Enzymatic Laundry Detergent Concentrate comes in a squirt bottle and just a squirt or two is usually enough for most loads of laundry.  They are still some of the best natural cleaning products on the market.

  • Enzymatic cleaners are better for people with skin allergies.

If you have skin allergies, you know that even the annual changes that detergent manufacturers make to their formulas — even minor changes — can wreak havoc on your skin. Not only does this cause considerable itching, irritation, rashes, pain, and general discomfort, but now you have to find a new laundry detergent to use!

This is not the case with biodegradable enzymatic laundry detergents, the best natural cleaning products for your skin and more. Because the enzymes in the formula are what attack the stains and then simply rinse away, there’s no need to be concerned about skin irritation or allergy induction. If your skin should become irritated after using an enzymatic cleaner, that’s usually an indication that they didn’t rinse completely away. Colder water temperature or a longer rinse cycle should do the trick.
