Quality, Safety and Environmental Stewardship

We at Charlie's Soap continuously strive to make the safest and most effective cleaners on the market. This has been our goal since our inception in 1976. Our cleaners were originally designed to comply with strict effluent standards of textile plants: Madison Throwing, Macfield, and Unifi. This required strict standards with regard to chronic worker exposure which had to be met and exceeded. We are proud to report that throughout our relationship with these companies, there have been zero safety incidents related to our products.

Times change but our approach to safety and environmental stewardship does not. Charlie's Soap researches trends in the industry to maintain its cutting edge reputation as being the strongest and greenest cleaner money can buy.

Charlie's Soap is:

• CLEAN.
• Nothing cleans as thoroughly as Charlie's Soap. (SGS Testing Labs)
• Targets the stains, not the surface.
• It rinses away completely. (Clemson University School of Textiles)

• GREEN.
• No gloves or masks required. Safe for your skin.
• Non-toxic and biodegradable.
• Rated safe for use around lakes, streams and oceans. (Japan Food Research Labs)


• TESTED
• We utilize Leading Labs throughout the word (as ref. above) to test the efficacy and safety of our products.
• We publish test results and make them widely available to allow consumers to make informed decisions about the use of our products. So what makes Charlie's Soap so special?

• Green Primary Ingredients
Charlie's Soap raw materials can be separated into two categories, biodegradable ingredients and natural mineral ingredients.  As tested by the Japan Food Research Laboratories and Situ Biosciences LLC, our products meet and exceed standards for biodegradability.  They were also rated safe for use around lakes and streams.  Our formulas have even been approved by the USDA for use around food preparing surfaces.

Documented Raw Material Quality Control; no detectible trace ingredients.
We at Charlie's Soap study each incoming raw material using infrared spectrometry to match them to known samples to reduce contaminants. Samples are kept for a minimum of 4 years.

• Zero incidental ingredients
Many other "green" detergents use incidental chemicals to augment their cleaning agents. These are things like (but are not limited to): oleic acid (plant-derived anti-foaming agent), sodium hydroxide (mineral-derived pH adjuster), boric acid (mineral-derived enzyme stabilizer), protease and amylase (plant-derived enzyme soil removers), glycerin (plant-derived enzyme stabilizer), calcium chloride (mineral enzyme stabilizer), sodium chloride (mineral viscosity modifier), citric acid (plant-derived processing aid and pH adjuster), methylisothiazolinone and benzisothiazolinone (synthetic preservatives), sodium gluconate (water softener), essential oils and botanical extracts (citrus aurantifolia lime), abies balsamea (balsam fir), calilistris columellaris (cypress), magnesium sulfate, sodium sulfate and sodium chloride (performance enhancers), sodium percarbonate (non-chlorine bleach), carboxymethyl inulin and carboxymethyl cellulose (antiredeposition agents), protease and cellulase (non-animal derived enzymes), oleic acid (plant-derived anti-foaming agents)

Charlie's Soap contains and needs NONE of these chemicals or chemicals like them: no baking soda, no zeolites, no fragrances, no bleach, no anti-foaming agents, no essential oils, no anti-redeposition agents, no thickening agents, and no enzymes. It stands on its simple formula for superior cleaning and safety.
