What's in Wildernes Wash and what for?

Wilderness Wash

This is not a product endorsement nor am I sponsered for this. I was just curious what's in there and why.


Sodium Lauryl Sulfat

This seems to be an oil- and fat-dissolvent and a foaming agent.

Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine

This seems to be an antistatic agent.

Sodium Chloride

Well... that's salt. I'd guess it's in there to soften the water. But yeah... this is just salt.

PEG-7 Glyceryl Ccocoate

Seems to be a tenside. Tensides lower suface tension.

Trisodium Ethylenediamine Disuccinate

A chelating agent.


Seems to bind moisture.

Diazolidinyl Urea

This seems to be an antimicrobial agent.


This seems to be a biocide.


This seems to be an antibacterial and antifungal agent.

Is there something dubious in it?

It seems that most of the ingredients are considered safe. However, they might cause allergic reactions and some might have some unknown carcinogenic risk.
