In 2009, Papa Tenney needed to search for an alternative to commercial laundry detergent since all the little children in the family were developing skin rashes as a reaction to the artificial chemicals found in the detergent. That’s when the search for a completely natural product started. Dissatisfied with what the market was currently offering, he decided to make some homemade soap himself. Thus, NearBayou Naturals laundry soap was born and has since flourished. Today it is available in over 200 stores in the mid-west and is has now expanded its base to Dallas, Texas.
NearBayou laundry soap is made out of naturally occurring substances such saponified olive oil, plant based fats, essential oils and botanical extracts. It is non-toxic and free of artificial surfactants, fragrances and preservatives. Our soap is one of the purest mixtures available in the market.
Our product is not tested on animals and completely safe for the environment. We love Mother Nature and want to preserve her glory. Therefore, we spend the extra dollar for recyclable packaging.
Our product is homemade and we try our best to get local and regional suppliers.
Our recipe is tried and tested to guarantee clean clothes with long lasting fresh scents. Choose from a variety of natural essential oils. We also have a special scent-free line of laundry soap for those with allergies.
Promote locally bought goods and services. Support our neighbors and their families with our purchases. Protect our environment. Move production and consumption closer together. It is not only good for the environment; it makes for a healthier and better way of life.
