Welcome to the New Branch Basics
We didn’t set out to sell soap. We removed synthetic ingredients from our diet and everyday products and experienced the radical transformation that truly healing environments can provide. During this experience, we found that switching to truly safe cleaning products was the most impactful to help people create safe havens for their families. Instead of following the toxic path laid by traditional cleaners and, unfortunately, most “green” cleaners, we committed to making a cleaning product that was radically different: a “human safe” cleaner that tackles virtually every home cleaning need, is as (or more!) effective than conventional cleaners, and is cheaper and less wasteful to boot!
At Branch Basics, we don’t think of ourselves as a “soap” company. We’re igniting a movement that truly Redefines Clean.
This past year has been a huge one for Branch Basics. A lot has changed in our company, but one thing has stayed exactly the same: our commitment to safety, purity, simplicity and effectiveness.
You’ve let us into your homes because you know we sell a safe cleaning product you like to use. Our job is to help our customers use “human safe” products to make truly clean environments where they can grow and stay healthy.
We still sell ONE Concentrate that replaces virtually any cleaner in your house. No more “What product do I buy for the soap scum in the bathroom?” or “What can I use to pretreat my cloth diapers?” We take the complications out of buying products and cleaning your home. By selling in concentrate and refilling with our new easy-to-use bottles, we can charge you 50% less per bottle than store-bought brands and save you around $300 a year!
Our 100% plant-based, active enzyme-based formula utilizes the best raw ingredients and an old-world method to make a non-irritating (alkaline pH) soap that has live enzymes to maximize cleaning power.
Our new branding conveys what we’ve always been about. We’re about People, which is why we spend a lot of our time on education and empowerment. We’re about Purity, which to us means getting back to the original definition of “clean”, and not using any harmful ingredients. We’re about Power and Practicality, because we think that we shouldn’t have to sacrifice “clean” for “green”.
You’ll notice these messages on our new bottles:
Power of Pure
We’ve experienced how important it is to remove products with harmful chemicals from our homes and then replace them with safe ones. Using truly pure products can transform your life. Branch Basics concentrated pure soap packs a powerful punch. A little bit goes a long way – Bring on life’s messes!
We think everyone should use products that won’t irritate your skin, lungs, or eyes. Even if you accidentally ingested our soap, you won’t have to call an ambulance. No warning labels here!
We don’t cut corners by adding chemicals that you don’t need. Our food-grade ingredients create a powerful soap that you can afford to use.
Branch Basics Packaging Improvements
We’ve been listening to your feedback, too. We made Branch Basics more economical to ship, to try for the first time, and ultimately to use for basically everything. The soap has the same ingredients, but is now 2X as concentrated. Less water means less packaging and less cost – that’s a win-win for everyone. We’ve also made pouring and filling easier with new squeeze bottles and spouts. We switched the fill lines from bottom to top so the bottles don’t overflow with bubbles as you fill them. You no longer have to label your own dilutions or figure out which dilution/ratio to use – we now have bottles sorted into All-Purpose, Bathroom, and Streak-Free cleaners so you always fill them the same way.
And your old bottles? Still great! Check out our FAQ about the new bottles and the new Concentrate to learn how to match old with new. You can use the old bottles with new soap and the old soap with new bottles. It’s easy!
