Component 1 in the Sonett Modular System

2.4 kg NET 85 oz (US)
10 kg NET 353 oz (US)
Suitable for all textiles made from cotton, linen, hemp and fabric blends. The main active ingredient of the Sonett Laundry Powder is pure vegetable soap. Soap is the cleansing substance most proximate for man and nature alike. Unlike all other surfactants, soap is disposed of right after its use as it loses its surface active properties immediately on reacting with the calcium that is always present in waste water, and then degrades completely and with ease.
Ranges of application:
Suitable for all coloured and white textiles made from cotton, linen, hemp and fabric blends of between
40 and 95 °C (100–200 °F).
Unsuitable for wool, silk, and microfibres.
Suitable for HE washing machines.
Soap derived from vegetable oils, certified organically grown >30%
Clay minerals and silicates 15–30%
Sodium carbonate 5–15%
Coconut oil alcohol sulphate 1–5%
Balsamic additives, certified organically grown/collection from wild-growing plants <1%
Powder humidity 10–15%
List of ingredients as per EC 648/2004
Sodium soap*, sodium carbonate, bentonite, zeolite, sodium C12–14, fatty alcohol sulphate, sodium silicate, sodium metasilicate, sodium disilicate

Origin and properties of the ingredients:
The main active ingredient of the Sonett Laundry Powder is soap, manufactured from various plant-based oils – such as palm oil, rape seed, sunflower and coconut oil – by simmering them with alkaline solution. The oils originate 100% from organic or biodynamic cultivation. Soap as an active washing substance uniquely amalgamates all of the properties required for the washing process – the moistening, dissolving, and absorbing of dirt. Sodium carbonate is a result of calcium reacting chemically with common salt. Metasilicate is obtained by melting quartz sand and sodium carbonate to form a compound. Sodium carbonate and metasilicate both intensify the washing lye, thanks to their alkalinity, and promote the removal of fatty substances in particular. Both zeolite A and phyllosilicate have silicate rock as their basic raw material. In addition to their property of binding lime in water, these substances also simultaneously bind the organic substances and colour pigments dissolved in the suds and prevent them from being deposited on the laundry. Fatty alcohol sulphate, derived from coconut oil, intensifies the soap’s fat-dissolving property.
Special product feature:
It is the modular system with its separate dosage of the 3 main components of the detergent, namely:
which really enables the optimal use of the inpidual substances, depending on the laundry’s degree of soiling, the water hardness and your inpidual wish for whiteness. For a soap-based detergent, soft water is an absolute precondition. Thanks to the modular principle, the basis is thus provided for making use of the unsurpassed advantages of soap even when hard water conditions prevail.
We abstain from using anticaking agents, fillers, optical brighteners, phosphates, and enzymes.
Density: (20 °C) approx. 0.65–0.75 g / cm³
pH value: (20 °C, 5 g / l H2O) approx. 10–11
Soap made from vegetable oils has one outstanding feature compared to all other active washing substances, namely that, right after its use, it loses its surface active properties immediately on chemically reacting with the calcium that is always present in waste water, and neutralises its effect on live organisms (primary degradation). The calcium soap thus formed is then 100% micro-organically degraded into carbon dioxide and water (secondary degradation). Coconut oil alcohol sulphate made from natural, renewable raw materials, during manufacturing remains intact in its internal molecular structure. Therefore, it is easily detected and degraded by microorganisms in the waste water, thus being reintegrated into the natural cycle rapidly and completely. The remaining constituents of the detergent – sodium carbonate, clay minerals, and silicates - are mineral substances which need no further degradation in nature.
Soap and coconut oil alcohol sulphate are classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.
