Vaska was originally founded in Berkeley, California in 1999, when a fashion designer conceived of the formula after ending her unsuccessful search for an efficacious laundry detergent suitable for delicate fabrics, sensitive skin, and the planet.
Vaska does not contain pollutants, irritants, toxins, dyes, or binding agents which allows it to wash clean out of fabric, much like a shampoo for clothes. Clothes are left looking, feeling, and smelling their best while leaving nothing harmful behind, on you, your clothes, or the environment.
No Chemical Residue
The Vaska formulation has been certified “natural” by the EPA, who awarded Scent-free Laundry Detergent, and our Oxygen Brightener, the Design for the Environment (DfE) certification.
Stain Removal Effectiveness
Vaska’s revolutionary formula has been perfected by a team of scientists over the past decade. The formula’s natural ingredients are derived from herbs and include the essential cleaning agents you need in order to effectively remove visible dirt, grime, stains, and odor from fabrics.
Designed for the Environment
When consumers see the Design for the Environment (DfE) label on a product, they can be confident that the ingredients have been through a rigorous EPA review. The label means that EPA scientists have evaluated every ingredient in the product to ensure it meets DfE’s stringent criteria. When people use Design for the Environment-labeled products they are protecting their families and the environment by making safer chemical choices.
