Environmentally Friendly Detergent

Sometimes results speak for themselves. Testing laundry detergent doesn’t have to be hard. We had these ASTM stain samples washed in a standard front loader washing machine similar to what you have at home. These are the results. You can also compare these detergents against a load run just with water to see how effective the other detergents truly are. Use the arrows to scroll through the results.

What you put in your washing machine – and next to your skin – matters. What you put in your washing machine – and next to your skin – matters. With the average household doing more than 400 loads of laundry per year, using an environmentally friendly detergent is important not just for you and your family, but for everything downstream as well. Many detergents claim to be “green”, touting themselves as nontoxic and biodegradable. Green marketing doesn’t cut it for us. Our starting point is where others call it a day. We begin using biodegradable, sustainable plant-based sources, minerals and synthetics from the EPA Safer Choice List. Then, we go beyond marketing and actually test our products, such as our clean and green detergents, using cutting-edge technologies. These results help us further refine and formulate products that are safer and better for the environment. This isn’t marketing. It’s using state of the art science to make better products and create a cleaner, greener world.


Defunkify ACTIVE WASH is an environmentally friendly detergent that keeps your waterproof and down jackets in prime condition. Unlike other brands that claim to be clean and green detergents, our formula extends the life of durable water repellant (DWR) treatments and increases the loft of down fibers, always providing you with the most dependable protection and insulation.

Getting the funk out is great, but what about creating a shield that keeps it out? Active Odor Shield and Active Spray keep your clothes and gear smelling fresh even during the most intense sweaty sessions. We use ionic silver based deodorizing molecules, developed by our scientists and green chemists from the University of Oregon. Active Odor Shield bonds these materials directly to the surface of fabric fibers to act as a durable odor blocker, stopping the enzymatic reactions that create that funky smell. These deodorizing molecules are small enough that they don’t impact the wicking, cooling, DWR or other advanced features of the garment. Active Spray provides a similar effect for things you can’t put in the washing machine.
