In 2013, Shelby Barkoff made her first batch of laundry soap. After struggling with irritation caused by store-bought detergents and their Pandora’s box of ingredients, she knew this was the best solution. Turns out she really liked it, and other people did too.
Made from limited ingredients, her handcrafted laundry soap is both additive- and detergent-free. Since that first batch, Shelby has expanded her offerings to meet these standards. Bringing peace of mind to like-minded individuals is the driving force of her journey.
Knowing what is in the products you bring home is important. Detergents, cleaners, and fragrances are all exempt from listing their ingredients. At Northern Suds we believe people deserve to know exactly what's in the products they bring into their homes. We also believe you don’t need 100+ ingredients to make a product work. We develop our products based on knowledge and know how that has been around for decades. Research and science is important when formulating our products. We not only care about what’s in our products but also the packaging. Waste is a HUGE issue for our planet and that’s why all our packaging is compostable or re-usable.
We believe knowledge and education is the key to having a healthy and long life. If you have any questions about our products or the ingredients we use, please contact us.
