Zum Clean is not a detergent.
It is a deterrent - to pollutants, to overconsumption, to byproducts, to irritants. After all, your clothes are your second skin. Would you rather wash your skin with detergent or soap? Good. Because this is not a detergent.

And since Indigo Wild's happy hands aren't as stingily efficient as machines, they pour liberal loads of pure essential oils for laundry loads that literally clear the air while they clean your clothes.
But, please, don't call this a detergent.

About Indigo Wild
Their people were born to be Indigo Wild. And - guilty as charged - every one of them
is a true nature's child. They've banded together to thump and bump the rock
and soul into every batch of Zum Bars, Glows, Rubs, Kisses, and more. Individually,
their peeps are virtuosos who are oh-so major to helping the ingredients sing. But
together, they're fusicians who ensure the holistic is always greater than the Zum
of its parts.
They make Indigo Wild's stuff rock, balancing the rhythm that forms the
backbone: Goat's milk, soy wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, argan oil, dragon's
blood. They add stuff like meadowfoam seed oil, rosehip oil, and botanical extracts
for bass vibes you can feel. Then they bring out the 100% pure essential oils to lay
down a melody that hits the high notes.

hands-on…which is all pretty dang handsome.

100% pure essential oils, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil, soy wax, goat's milk,
botanical extracts and other jujulicious ingredients. It all helps to carry on some
karma and magnify the mojo. Then it's flashed by the butt of a gnome, danced over
by a shaman, kissed by a fairy and blessed by a goat.
