Rockin' Green, one of the cloth diapering industries favorite and most trusted cloth diaper safe detergents has recently introduced a new formula. Same great product as before, but a new version, a version they're calling “remix.” The name makes perfect sense because of Rockin' Green‘s “rockin” style.
But what is “remix” all about and how is it different from previous versions of Rockin' Green?
According to Rockin' Green's official website these are the changes that make the REMIX different from the past formulas.
- Gentle for longevity. The new blends have a lower PH then other detergents on the market, which means it's even gentler on fabrics and diapers.
- It's safer for sensitive skin. Having undergone cosmetic testing, Rockin' Green can now be used on even the most sensitive skinned babies.*
- Better cleaning power. Rockin' Greens new REMIX has more cleaning power per scoop, many customers have found a 60% reduction in stains, and are able to reduce the amount of “rock the soaks” needed.
*Cosmetic testing was performed using Rockin' Green Soap's unscented formula called Bare Naked Babies.
But how exactly was it tested? Well laboratories had subjects wear Rockin' Green Soap directly against their skin for size weeks straight and then they were observed for an chemical or cosmetic allergies, irritation or other reactions. The good news…Rockin' Green passed the test and showed no evidence of irritation or allergic reactions.
The Good News? Well obviously the good news is that if your child has a history of rashes, irritation, etc. and you use Rockin' Greens Bare Naked Babies in the new REMIX formula you should have one happy little baby bottom.
If rashes occur with any detergents, it's easy to blame the detergent. The truth is, rashes are usually not caused by the detergents themselves but by improper washing. If you're diapers aren't clean enough then they'll have an unfriendly pH balance and they'll also be loaded with bad bacteria. It's important to make sure your diapers are thoroughly clean, with the proper amount of detergent, before your baby wears them.
Rockin' Green recommends you use 2-3 tbsp per load or for HE machines or those who have soft water, 1-2 tbsp is recommended.
