Full Ingredient List [PEPPERMINT TEA TREE]: Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), Vegetable Soap [Sodium Cocoate, Glycerin, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Water], Organic Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Organic
Melaleuca Alternafolia Leaf (Tea Tree) Oil

Detailed Ingredient Info:

Sodium Bicarbonate: Also known as baking soda, sodium bicarbonate is an odor neutralizer and gentle abrasive.

Vegetable Soap consists of:

Sodium Cocoate: This is the chemical name of saponified (that is, 'made into soap') coconut oil. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.

Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirts.

Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil: There is a small amount of coconut oil left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Some soapmakers refer to this as 'superfatting' and more oil remaining results in a softer, more moisturizing bar. Our coconut soap bars have only a small amount of excess oil, so they are not the luxurious body bar type and more of a 'get the job done' bar.

Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process as a substance that dissolves lye and then is a medium so the lye can reach all of the oil to react. After being useful in this process, the water is allowed to evaporate from the soap over a period of several weeks, and the resulting dried bar has very little water. There is only about 5% water remaining in the finished bars, thus making them more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high (about 60%) water. 

Safe for Use on:

Stainless Steel, Ceramic/Porcelain Tile, Stovetop

Avoid Using Scrub On:

Love, Love, Love This Product!

The Meliora scrub works better than any cleaner I've tried, both natural and conventional. It removes the soap scum from my sinks and tub really well, and I love the peppermint-tea tree oil scent. Thanks to this product, I actually look forward to cleaning my sinks! I'm so pleased that its packaging is eco-friendly, and it is manufactured close to home. Thank you, Meliora!

New favorite cleaning product

I am so happy with this product!! It is an amazing cleaner, and I love having a light peppermint smell instead of chemicals after I clean something. I use it on my tubs & sinks and will definitely re-purchase. Your products are fantastic!

Love this!

Peppermint Tea tree scent smells amazing and cleans like magic. My favorite thing to use it for is scrubbing out my kitchen sink. It looks and smells so clean! Such a great alternative to othercleaners full of toxic chemicals.

Wonderful product!

I bought both the scented and unscented versions of the Gentle Home Cleaning Scrub. I could not believe my eyes when I saw what a complete job they did of cleaning the stove top of my 40+ year old electric stove. It removed all traces of dried on, cooked on grease, and left my stove top shining and not scratched. For future use, I must remember to use less as a little bit goes a long way. I also used it to scrub my toilet bowl with the same amazing results. I really liked the scented version. I thought it might irritate my allergies, but it didn't. In the future, I will only buy the scented version.


Smells great,works great! I use it on my toilet and tub!
