About Dirty Labs

Dirty Labs is all about clean cleaning.

We’re committed to making our vision for a cleaner future a reality. With a focus on clean ingredients, responsible sourcing, and renewable manufacturing practices, we're making conscious product decisions for a cleaner planet.

Holistic approach.

We examine every aspect of our products and their life cycles in order to achieve the safest, most sustainable solutions.

Clean ingredients.

Our goal is to create 100% biobased, biorenewable, and biodegradable formulas. We include synthetic ingredients in our formulations only when the natural alternative contains known allergens, or are unsafe for people or the planet.

Responsible sourcing.

Our biobased raw materials are responsibly sourced and extracted directly from nature. Any palm oils used are RSPO certified.

Renewable manufacturing.

We’re diversifying our plant-based raw material sourcing with biosynthesis, a biorenewable fermentation process that utilizes naturally occurring microbes in a nutrient-rich broth, to create our advanced enzymes. Biosynthesis produces ingredients and byproducts that are nontoxic, biodegradable, and environmentally benign.

Reducing carbon footprint.

By creating hyper-concentrated formulas, we greatly reduce our package sizes in weight and volume. This means more efficient shipping, less fuel used, and fewer trucks to transport our products.


Sustainable packaging.

Dirty Labs is committed to reducing plastic in our packaging. We are constantly looking to find recyclable, reusable, and biodegradable solutions to carry our products. Our bottles are made of recycled aluminum and can be infinitely recycled. Our cap and spout are BPA free and made with non-colored PP and PE plastic to increase their recyclability and applicable re-uses.


About Dirty Labs.

Dirty Labs is a cleaning innovations lab creating high performance, hyper-efficient biobased cleaners. Our mission is clean cleaning and we’re starting with laundry.
We founded Dirty Labs to create the change we want to see in the cleaning industry — a sustainable, biobased approach to cleaning that’s rooted in science and aligned with nature. Too many cleaners today still rely on petrochemicals and harsh synthetics that pollute the environment and our drinking water. 40 billion loads of laundry are done in the United States each year. Most of those loads include hazardous chemicals, including EPA classified carcinogens, that enter into our water supply.
After years of research, we’ve created a new cleaning technology built with advanced biobased ingredients and without the hazardous chemicals commonly found in laundry detergents today. Our team of chemists, biologists, and environmentalists have raised the bar for safety and sustainability by eliminating all California Proposition 65 chemicals of concern and EU listed fragrance allergens for a truly clean ingredient list that’s also readily biodegradable.
For us, clean cleaning is not just about clean ingredients. We formulate to get the job done, and we put our products through rigorous testing to ensure they’re strong enough for those who like to get really dirty, and safe and gentle enough for babies and sensitive skin.

But how does green clean
get to mean clean?
