Are you an expectant mom or a new mom? If yes, welcome to the world of tons of baby clothes and laundry. Much more if you will use cloth diapers like me, you have to be careful choosing baby detergent brands to use and keep away your child’s clothes from any harmful chemicals and irritants which can be found in detergents.
I was blessed to received and try Happyganics baby laundry detergent. Let me share you why this is recommended for your little one’s clothes, bedding, towel, stroller cover and more.
900 grams can be used for 60 loads
WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS?
Sodium Carbonate – “soda ash”, it is a water softener and helps laundry detergents to lather more effectively. Also a mild disinfectant and PH adjuster.
Sodium Chloride – also called table salt. It is to use as viscosity increasing agent in the detergent.
Sodium Metasilicate (Soda) – as builder to enhance the cleaning efficiency of the surfactant. It helps reduce water hardness.
Alkyl Polyglycoside (non-ionic surfactant from coconut and palm kernel oils) – They are used to enhance the formation of fine and smooth foam for delicate fabrics. Most importantly, they are readily biodegradable and skin friendly.
Sodium Sulfate (Natural Glauber’s Salt) – enable the detergent powder to flow freely, so that the detergent would not stick together.
Why Happyganics is safe to use?

Chances to get skin, eyes and pharynx irritation, liver damage, allergies, decreased heart rate, depressed ventilation in children and the cause of developmental effects on human.
No phosphates – chemicals found containing phosphorus. It is used to help soften water and remove soil, oil and grease. If expose to this kind of chemicals chances to experience diarrhea, skin irritations and nausea.

1.5 kilograms P1, 390.00
900 grams – P 990.00
150 grams – P 249.00
Comes in Lavender and Natural Unscented
DIRECTIONS FOR USING IT:
- Use one 15g scoop for the 5kg load or 45 liters of water.
- Will dissolve in cold or hot water quickly.
MY FINAL SAY ABOUT THE PRODUCT: Tried this product for the cloth diapers, sweaters, even toys of my children I have, it leaves soothing smell because I used the Lavender scent. It is not foamy. If you will follow the directions well, you’ll get the result as expected. The only thing though that I noticed the product is quite expensive. But I guess it can justify the product itself and since it is the safest baby laundry detergent in the market these days, moms won’t mind paying for the price and it can protect your child’s delicate skin and from any harmful ingredients. Yes, this is costly initially, but we should compute it based on the cost per load. Example for a 1.5kg can, it can wash 100 loads (5kls / load) @ Php 1,390. Which means per load the cost is PhP 13.90. For local brand, their price is about PhP 272 for 1KG and can only wash 22 loads (equivalent to heavy load or 5kg) this means that their cost per load is PhP 12.36. More or less, Happyganics price is competitive in the market. It is a little expensive because the raw materials is made in USA.
