Do 'green' detergents contain anti-corrosion agents?

11 years ago

Here is the first of (hopefully) several replies regarding the formulas of "greener" detergents.

This is Seventh Generation's response to my question:

Thanks for writing to us.

We do not have any anti-corrosion agents in our detergents. All the detergents do have anionic surfactants that act as anti-redeposition agents. These help to dissolve any dirt or grime and wash them away, they do not allow the dirt to redeposit on the clothing. The ingredients used for this are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Laureth-6, these are both coming from either palm kernal oil or coconut oil.
