Another Melaleuca First in the Market — No Formaldehyde!

Longer-lasting fragrance without formaldehyde

In true Melaleuca fashion, we discovered how to safely manufacture fragrance capsules without formaldehyde—giving you safer, fresher-smelling laundry.

Melaleuca MelaSoftSafer Alternative

MelaSoft® is the first fabric softener in the market to use formaldehyde-free scent encapsulation technology. Our new,  Safe Scent™ capsules use micro beads that are 100% formaldehyde-free.

How It Works

The fragrance capsules are embedded in the fabric of your laundry during the wash and dry cycle. Then, later on, when you wear your shirt, sleep on the sheets, or dry off with a towel, the friction and movement releases the fragrance by breaking the capsules.

The comforting scent of fresh-from-the-dryer laundry continues to be released days after you wash. Two fragrances—Spring Breeze and Clean Cotton—are made from natural, essential oils, so you know your clothes will smell naturally fresh while your family stays safe.

MelaSoft not only gives you the softest clothes and linens, it also infuses them with the natural fragrance of real essential oils.

Only Melaleuca has it!

    I absolutely love MelaSoft Spring Breeze Scent! My clothes come out smelling so fresh and clean. I love the fact that it is naturally derived so it is safe for my family and pets, my septic system, and our wonderful earth.

    As always Melaleuca is pioneering the way in safer, better products for our homes, health, and great environment! I love the smell of this and the technology is so cool how this new scent encapsulation works! That’s what I love best about Melaleuca: they invest in Science, ingredients, and you and me! Once a customer always a customer…

    Does this mean formaldehyde was used before the fragrance capsule? I have been under the impression for 10 years or more that Melaleuca didn’t’ use formaldehyde.

    You’re right, Lbrw, Melaleuca has never used formaldehyde in MelaSoft. My understanding is that the new technology the MelaScientists developed will allow them to make the product even better (fragrance capsules) … but without using toxic chemicals (like other brands do).
