Dish Soap Without Preservatives, Such as Isothiazolinone

On behalf on my mom, I'm wondering if anyone knows if or what dish soaps or detergents contain no isothiazolinone or methylchloroisothiazolinone?

Caldrea has a dish soap that doesn't have those listed in their ingredients. Just an unspecified "preservative." I'll copy and paste (this is for their Ginger Pomelo scent):

Deionized Water, Plant Derived Surfactants, Ethanol, Soap Bark Extract, Essential Oils of Ginger, Grapefruit and Pomelo, Fragrance, Aloe Vera Gel, Preservative, Caramel Color, Annatto

Method's dish soap lists "preservative" under .1% . . . but they also don't specify what the preservative is.

I've used both Caldrea and Method products before. Caldrea's Ginger Pomelo scent is dreamy!! But I find it difficult to locate, so I order online from I can find Method at Target, and once I saw a kit of their stuff at Big Lots.


Seventh Generation lists a different preservative at less than .05% for their Natural Dish liquid. Their products are at Target, Walgreen's, or lots of natural/health food stores. Or Mrs. Meyer's is another line you might want to look into. I've never personally tried their products, but I've heard good things about them.

Good luck!

Here is a link from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Household Products database. You can check products against this list to see if they are on there. I know that some of the list posted by Lisa do have these chemicals, like Seventh Generation

I saw some posts recommending Lush products, because they are all natural. A natural food store like Whole Foods might be able to offer suggestions as well.
