We are delighted to announce that arbOUR Products Free+Clear Laundry Detergent has been CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly®


The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program helps consumers identify products for the home that are more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. Products undergo independent testing to meet scientific standards established by the program. The certification mark is only awarded to those products that pass those standards.

 “For people with asthma and allergies, reducing allergens is an important part of their asthma and allergy management plan,” said Kenneth Mendez, CEO and president of AAFA. “We congratulate arbOUR Products on earning the rigorous asthma & allergy friendly® Certification for its Free+Clear laundry detergent.”

To earn the certification, arbOUR Products Free+Clear laundry detergent passed rigorous scientific testing and demonstrated:

  • Its ability to reduce over 95% of allergens related to pet dander and dust mites from fabrics washed with the detergent.
  • It has extremely low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions when used.
  • Each ingredient has been reviewed to ensure that any chemicals with allergenic or sensitizing properties are either absent or at suitably low levels.

“We started arbOUR Products because we wanted high-quality products that were better for people, pets, and our planet,” said Carol Mehas, co-founder of arbOUR Products. “We are so proud to join the family of products that are CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® and for our Free+Clear detergent to be recognized to be of a higher standard for household and professional cleaning.”

Creating healthier indoor is a critical part of improving lives for all as indoor air pollution is one of the top five environmental risks to public health, according to the US Environment Protection Agency, so consumers are seeking  trustworthy guidance on how to choose more suitable products. 

“We are delighted that arbOUR Products Free+Clear laundry detergent has joined the growing number of leading product manufacturers to achieve asthma & allergy friendly® Certification,” shared Dr. John McKeon, CEO of ASL. “Consumers can be confident that CERTIFIED laundry detergent can remove allergens like dust mite allergen and pet allergen, and that product claims are based on good science.”

arbOUR ProductsarbOUR Products started as a labor of love by a mom, former product and brand developer, and lifelong seeker of a “better way” to clean. Unable to find what she was looking for on grocery and superstore shelves, she resolved to develop her own solution of commercial-strength cleaning products that actually work and are also sustainable, natural, and safe for the people, pets, and planet. Launched in summer 2022 with a range of home cleaning essentials, arbOUR is creating new solutions to age-old cleaning problems — from smarter stain-removers, to non-toxic ways to tackle stubborn odors, to hand wash made from sustainably sourced soapbark. arbOUR products are available exclusively on the website, where the arbOUR TREEHOUSE is building a community to redefine cleaning as less choreful, and more cheerful.
