Features of Japanese powders
Japanese detergents for washing clothes are valued for their safe composition, environmental friendliness and economy. These are the main benefits of most liquid and dry powders made in Japan.
The cleaning base of Japanese-made laundry detergents is vegetable raw materials - enzymes of protease, lipase, etc. In the composition of liquid and dry powders there are no toxic substances that increase the effectiveness of washing, but negatively affect a person:
- zeolites - widely used in various industries, medicine, salty, porous compounds containing silicon and aluminum, they are safe for the environment (do not lead to pollution of natural waters), but do not completely wash out from tissues, often cause allergic reactions, especially in children, accelerate wear of parts of washing machines (due to the fact that they are abrasive);
- phosphates - inorganic salts of phosphoric acids, which are included in powders to soften water and enhance the quality of washing, they pollute water bodies, cause allergies and impair metabolic processes with frequent contact of human skin with them;
- phosphonates are also salts of phosphoric acids, but organic, therefore, they have the same danger as phosphates with the only difference - their concentration in powders is lower, because less phosphorus gets into the water, which means less harm to the environment will be done.
The listed components of detergents irritate the skin, especially in people prone to allergies. With constant contact with things washed using powders with such substances in the composition, a person's immunity gradually decreases, the normal functioning of the kidneys and other internal organs is disrupted, as well as metabolic processes.
In children, people with weakened immunity, the elderly, phosphate powders often cause allergic reactions on the skin
Economy of funds
All powders made in Japan are concentrated. Despite their high cost, in the end we get good savings, since the expense is small.
For the convenience of dosing powders, many of them have a measuring spoon in the packaging.

|Tide powder||4-5 kg - 150 g.||50 g per 10 liters of water.|
Safe for the environment
The special composition of Japanese powders makes them environmentally friendly. Its components are biodegradable, therefore, after washing, they decompose into substances that are harmless to the environment. In addition, they are safe for the environment for the following important reasons:
- due to the absence of phosphates and phosphonates, they do not pollute natural water bodies - they do not cause water bloom, do not reduce the amount of oxygen dissolved in it, thereby not exerting a negative impact on the aquatic environment and its inhabitants;
- due to the absence of zeolites in the powders, the air is not saturated with dust (this feature is more noticeable in closed rooms, where air exchange is much weaker than in open spaces).
The presence of phosphate powders negatively affects the environment, for example, leads to water bloom

Rules for the use of Japanese powders
A feature of Japanese laundry detergents is their concentrated composition. Therefore, the only difference in the way they are used, in comparison with the products of other manufacturers, is the need to use less quantity per wash. Consumption rates are always indicated on the packaging, usually in the form of a table.
Even if all the labels on the packaging are in Japanese, it's easy to understand how to use the powder: a convenient table clearly shows this
The recommended water temperature for washing is 30–40 degrees.
The natural composition and the absence of phosphates are the main differences between Japanese powders. Since most of them are concentrated, along with safety for human health and the environment, they are also characterized by economy. It is a profitable and sensible alternative to the usual powders, especially necessary for the care of the linen of young children and people prone to allergies.
