About our partner

Meliora began when their co-founder, Kate, began wondering what was really in her cleaning products. After discovering companies aren’t actually required to list all of their ingredients, Kate set out to create cleaning products with simple, earth-friendly ingredients that are listed on the front of the package.

Meliora means “better” in Latin, and that’s what these cleaning products are made to be. They’re conscious about choosing ingredients that are effective, safe for the home and body, and cause no trouble for Mother Earth after the chores are said and done.

To support their planet friendly commitment, Meliora has several certifications. As a certified B Corp, Meliora is evaluated by a third-party; it highlights strengths in company ownership and governance (woman-owned), labor practices (living wages), and the product itself (low impact products and packaging). Through partnerships with 1% for the Planet and Women’s Voices for the Earth, Meliora commits 2% of annual revenues to environmental and charitable nonprofits.

The Made Safe seal signifies that their products and ingredients have been examined for buildup in the environment (including aquatic toxicity) and our bodies. Their products are also cruelty-free: Leaping Bunny is the highest standard for companies that are committed to using no animal testing.

Full ingredient list

Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), vegetable soap [sodium cocoate, glycerin, organic cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, water].

 

More information on ingredients

Sodium bicarbonate: Also known as baking soda, sodium bicarbonate is an odor neutralizer and gentle abrasive.

Sodium cocoate: This is the chemical name of saponified (that is, “made into soap”) coconut oil. It’s the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.

Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirt.

Organic cocos nucifera (coconut) oil: There is a small amount of coconut oil left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because they use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process, and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Some soapmakers refer to this as “superfatting” and more oil remaining results in a softer, more moisturizing soap. Meliora’s coconut soap has only a small amount of excess oil, so it is not the luxurious body type and more of a “get the job done” soap.

Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process to dissolve lye and act as a medium so the lye can reach all of the oil to react. After being useful in this process, the water is allowed to evaporate from the soap over a period of several weeks, and the resulting vegetable soap has very little water. There is only about 5% water remaining in the finished soap, thus making it more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high (about 60%) water content.
