Born Good - The Good Detergent - Blogon
Our story was born with the aspiration to be good. We wanted to go beyond laundry detergent efficacy and create products that were as good at cleansing and stain removal as they were for our environment, our clothes and our bodies. And, like all good stories, it began with a vision to be better, do more and make a positive impact.
As our founder & CEO, Mohit Belani, watched lakes and other water bodies around him foam-up with toxic effluents and eventually catch fire, he knew a systemic change had to be made at the very source of this toxic water pollution. Close to two decades in the textile processing industry put Mohit in a unique position to lead this change. He drew on the 50+ years of experience of our parent companies, Ramsons Garment Finishing Equipment (Ramsons) & European Textile Chemical Corporation (ETCC), to understand the most efficient ways to minimise the negative ecological impact of traditional detergent affluents.
The answer was right in front of us - Nature
Bottling up Plant Powered Science
Our team of accredited bio-scientists and chemists turned to the evergreen world of nature and plants around us to create the unique plant-based formulations of our proprietary line of bio-based liquid laundry detergents. Each of our formulations are derived from the reliable goodness of plants and are augmented by the efficiency of science. Not only do they work as powerful cleaning agents, they are also lab-tested and backed by highly-reputed accreditations from the USDA.
Most importantly, our range of eco-friendly laundry detergents is proven to be less polluting for our water bodies, more gentle on your skin, and increase the lifespan of your clothes. All within our eco-friendly Forever PET bottles.
We conceived and launched BornGood to help more people contribute to making our planet a better place is a small yet significant way, without compromising on cleaning efficacy.
