As with so many companies, Roux Maison was born from a need. After years of searching and frustration, all I wanted was a laundry detergent that got my clothes perfectly clean, didn’t irritate my skin, and/or ruin my clothes in the process. Having to jump back when smelling the overly-scented, eye-irritating contents of different bottles definitely convinced me that whatever was inside couldn’t be good for me or my clothes. 

I realized I had sweaters from my mom’s college days, and yet none of mine survived. Why? Because over the years, laundry products became so much more abrasive and contained so many more noxious chemicals. I tried every product I could find and finally had that lightbulb moment when I said – well if I can’t find what I want, I’ll just have to make it! It took years to assemble our team and do our research.

Early in the process, it became clear that part of the problem was that no single laundry detergent could precisely clean a silk blouse, a laundry basket full of towels, and sweaty workout gear. What might be excellent for one of those was utterly ineffective on another or overly harsh on a different one. So we broke it down to manageable categories, addressing everything we own and creating exact detergents for each one. We tested about a bazillion formulas before developing this perfect line of products. 

Roux Maison detergents thoroughly clean all of our different fabrics and clothing items, without being overly harsh or too mild. As a bonus, they are all safe for your skin and the environment. Perfectly clean clothes that don’t fray with no more stinging eyes and itchy skin...we are thrilled to offer the best line of laundry products, creating tomorrow’s heirlooms from what we love today! We love your laundry!

 

“Using the highest quality ingredients, we create tomorrow's heirlooms by preserving the items we love today.”
