Origin and properties of the ingredients
The main active ingredient of the Sonett Laundry Powder is soap, manufactured from various plant-based oils – such as palm oil, rape seed, sunflower and coconut oil – by simmering them with alkaline solution. The oils originate 100% from organic or biodynamic cultivation. Soap as an active washing substance uniquely amalgamates all of the properties required for the washing process–the moistening, dissolving, and absorbing of dirt. Sodium carbonate is a result of calcium reacting chemically with common salt. Metasilicate is obtained by melting quartz sand and sodium carbonate to form a compound.
Sodium carbonate and metasilicate both intensify the washing lye, thanks to their alkalinity, and promote the removal of fatty substances in particular. Both zeolite A and phyllosilicate have silicate rock as their basic raw material. In addition to their property of binding lime in water, these substances also simultaneously bind the organic substances and colour pigments dissolved in the suds and prevent them from being deposited on the laundry. Fatty alcohol sulphate, derived from coconut oil, intensifies the soap’s fat-dissolving property.

Special product feature
It is the modular system with its separate dosage of the
3 main components of the detergent, namely:
1. the active washing substances
2. the softener and
3. the bleaching complex
which really enables the optimal use of the individual substances, depending on the laundry’s degree of soiling, the water hardness and your individual wish for whiteness. For a soap-based detergent, soft water is an absolute precondition. Thanks to the modular principle, the basis is thus provided for making use of the unsurpassed advantages of soap even when hard water conditions prevail.
We abstain from using anticaking agents, fillers, optical brighteners, phosphates, and enzymes.
Ranges of application
Suitable for all coloured and white textiles made from cotton, linen, hemp and fabric blends of between 40 and 95 °C (100–200 °F).
Suitable for HE washing machines.
Application / Dosage
Add Softener into the detergent compartment of the washing machine. Fill Laundry Detergent into a measuring ball and put it straight into the drum.
Soap made from vegetable oils has one outstanding feature compared to all other active washing substances, namely that, right after its use, it loses its surface active properties immediately on chemically reacting with the calcium that is always present in waste water, and neutralises its effect on live organisms (primary degradation).
The calcium soap thus formed is then 100% micro-organically degraded into carbon dioxide and water (secondary degradation).
Coconut oil alcohol sulphate made from natural, renewable raw materials, during manufacturing remains intact in its internal molecular structure. Therefore, it is easily detected and degraded by microorganisms in the waste water, thus being reintegrated into the natural cycle rapidly and completely.
The remaining constituents of the detergent – sodium carbonate, clay minerals, and silicates – are mineral substances which need no further degradation in nature. Soap and coconut oil alcohol sulphate are classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.
