Company Description

Dinobi Detergent is a plant-based, cruelty-free, and dioxane-free laundry detergent and dish soap brand founded by Augie and Sylvia Emuwa in Chicago. They sell their original 100% plant-based detergent and soaps online, at various retail stores, and at their laundromat, Dirty Laundry x Dinobi. Their typical customers are people with sensitive skin, babies, and pets, as well as those who are looking for environmentally friendly cleaning products. Dinobi Detergent is a great choice for these customers because their products are made with a short list of high-quality ingredients and come in recyclable glass bottles.
