Nature Lake Ingredients

Our eco-committed customers want to know whether the ingredients in products they use to clean their homes may be harmful to their families and pets or to the environment. Many companies will provide you with a laundry list of ingredients in those products — but what do all of those scientific-sounding terms mean?

At Nature Lake, we thought it would be more useful to our customers to not just list the ingredients in our products, but tell you in plain English what they are. You’ll recognize many of them as items your grandmother kept in her pantry. You probably do, too.

Maltodextrin: White powder made from the starches of potatoes, corn, rice, wheat. For us, it helps bind the product. In other uses, it’s good for your skin! It’s used in cosmetics.

Sodium benzoate: Naturally occurs in fruits and vegetables and in seafood. It can act as a food preservative. It’s often found in salad dressings, carbonated drinks, jams and fruit juices, and pickles. We use it in our products because it prevents fungi like yeast and molds.

Sodium methyl cocoyl taurate: Derived from coconuts, it’s a surfactant, which means it allows oil and water to mix, making for effective cleaning. It is commonly used in shampoos and soaps. It’s so gentle, it is used in products designed for sensitive skin.

Sodium lauryl sulfate: Another surfactant, SLS is commonly used in cleaning products, as well as in toothpaste, shampoos and shaving creams.

Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate: This compound is a disinfectant, and easily dissolves in water (perfect for a tablet!).
