About VASKA - The New Standard in Laundry.
VASKA LLC was originally founded in Berkeley, California in 1999, when a fashion designer conceived of the formula after ending her unsuccessful search for an efficacious laundry detergent suitable for delicate fabrics, sensitive skin, and the planet. VASKA does not contain pollutants, irritants, toxins, dyes, or binding agents. This allows VASKA to wash clean out of fabric, much like a shampoo for clothes. Clothes are left looking, feeling, and smelling their best while leaving nothing harmful behind, on you, your clothes, or the environment. The VASKA formulation has been certified "natural" by the EPA, who awarded Scent-free VASKA Laundry Detergent, and VASKA Oxygen Brightener, the Design for the Environment (DfE) certification.
