Harmful toxins are all around you, and they may even be lurking in places you least expect. Most commercial cleaning products might not be so clean themselves. Experts estimate that over 60 different toxic chemicals can be found in the average household cleaner. Not only are these harmful substances easily absorbed through your skin, they can also negatively affect the environment.
Cleaning your home shouldn’t have to come at the cost of poisoning your family and the environment, which is why the Health Ranger Store is bringing back your favorite eco-friendly cleaning products, based on ingredients which are highly rated by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). Health Ranger Select Laundry Detergent Powder and Health Ranger Select Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Powder are designed to leave all your laundry and dishes squeaky clean without harming your health in the process.
Health Ranger Select All-Purpose Non-Toxic Cleaner Concentrate is every bit what your cleaning partner should be: tough on dirt but mild on your skin. These 3 environment-friendly cleaning solutions use zero abrasives, lye, phosphates, bleach, dye, perfumes, or synthetic chemicals. They are lab verified for cleanliness and purity.
Toxic chemicals are hidden in most commercial cleaning products
Did you know that the law does not require household cleaning product manufacturers to list all their ingredients?
Even products that claim to be green, natural, or non-toxic may contain hidden ingredients that can harm your health, your family, or the environment. Beware of the following ingredients:
Quaternary ammonium compounds, or “QUATS”
Widely used in scented products, such as soaps, detergents, and air fresheners, these chemicals can have profound adverse effects on healthy endocrine function. Casual skin contact with products that contain phthalates is enough to absorb the chemical into your body.
This chemical is also known as "dry-cleaning fluid" because of its applications in dry-cleaning, spot removal, and cleaning upholstery. Exposure to this neurotoxin can lead to symptoms such as dizziness and loss of coordination.
Triclosan is a harmful chemical that has long been used in commercial “anti-bacterial” soaps and liquid dishwashing detergents. This chemical is a major contributor to the development of resistant, hard-to-control microbial pathogens, and its runoff poisons streams and rivers.
These chemicals are added
as an antimicrobial agent and are usually found in fabric softener liquids and sheets. Prolonged use of products
with QUATS has been linked to skin irritation as well as respiratory problems.
This chemical can irritate the airways when inhaled, especially among people with asthma or lung issues. Prolonged contact leads to bronchitis. When combined with bleach, another common cleaning agent, ammonia creates a deadly toxic gas.
This chemical gives window- and multipurpose cleaners their sweet smell. Although pleasant to the senses, inhaling small doses of 2-butoxyethanol can lead to a sore throat, while large doses can result in unconsciousness, pulmonary edema, and even kidney and liver damage.
As a bleaching and antibacterial agent, chlorine is found in many products, including toilet bowl cleaners, mildew removers, and fabric whiteners. Chlorine is a potent irritant that affects the respiratory system and may also disrupt the functions of the thyroid gland.
Also known as "lye," this chemical is used to remove tough grime from ovens and to open drains because of its highly corrosive nature. Direct contact with lye can cause severe burns on your skin and eyes, while inhaling its fumes may result in a long-lasting sore throat.
Benzophenone-2 or "BP-2"
1,4-dioxane is a harmful contaminant found in most commercial dishwasher detergents, including those that are supposedly "all-natural." This synthetic petrochemical and possible carcinogen can harm both humans and the environment.
This toxic substance is found in more than 380 individual products including laundry detergents, shampoos, soaps, cosmetics, lotions, and bath salts. When used water carries BP-2 into the oceans, it can devastate coral reefs and marine ecology.

Most dishwasher detergents and other cleaning products are made via ethoxylation, a low-cost chemistry technique that reduces the effects of the harsh ingredients, but also creates a contaminant known as 1,4-dioxane that can harm both the environment and humans alike. But Health Ranger Select Dishwasher Automatic Detergentdoesn't contain any harmful, synthetic toxins or harsh chemicals, so you never have to worry about poisoning Mother Nature or your family when you wash your dishes. It's made with these 100% natural, lab-verified ingredients guaranteed to clean and shine your dishes without posing any risk to you or your surroundings:
Each 5-pound box of our environment-friendly dishwasher formula contains enough detergent for 120 loads, which means you can have squeaky clean dishes, pots and pans for less money. Our dishwasher detergent powder contains no fillers, chlorine, abrasives, lye, phosphates, bleach, dyes, or perfumes, and it is not tested on animals.
Note: Not recommended for "hard" water with a high TDS count, typically found in rural well water.
No chemical residue
The dishwasher you use is just as important as the food you eat, since detergent residues can remain on the dishes and you end up ingesting them. Most dishwasher detergent brands contain chlorine bleach (a poisonous chemical that causes respiratory problems, especially during the drying cycle when the fumes are released into the air), synthetic fragrances (that often contain phthalates), and sulfuric acid (a very corrosive substance that can cause burns).
With Health Ranger Select Automatic Dishwasher Detergent Powder, you never have to worry about any hidden chemical residues that you could potentially ingest. Our dishwasher formula is made only with the purest natural ingredients and is 100% environment-friendly, proving once again that you can get perfect cleanliness without compromising your health.
I have long been an advocate for a cleaner environment. It's important to me that we pass along a planet that is better, safer and cleaner than the one we inherited. That's why I sought out only the purest, chemical-free dishwasher detergent I could find. I don't believe you should have to sacrifice another portion of the planet every time you run the dishwasher. Now, you don't have to, because my Health Ranger Select Dishwasher Detergent is free of toxic chemicals that put our Earth, and our families, at risk.
