The World's First Carbon Capture Soap
Removing carbon from the air, one bar at a time
How It works
Every CleanO2 soap product is made with carbon that would otherwise have been released into the atmosphere if not captured by our CarbinX™ units and turned into amazing soap products that are great for your body, the community, and the environment.
When you purchase CleanO2 soap products, you’re supporting the deployment of more CarbinX™ units around the world to capture more carbon and reduce the impact on our climate.Shop Now
What is CarbinX™
CarbinX™ captures CO2 from heating appliances and converts it into potassium carbonate, also known as “pearl ash”. The pearl ash permanently sequesters the CO2 and is then blended into our soap & detergent products to enhance their performance.
The Clean O2 Story
The idea for CleanO2 came to life over a decade ago when Jaeson Cardiff, a plumber and HVAC mechanic, and his co-founders Kathi Fischer, a chemical technologist and Scott Forgrave, president of Excelair Mechanical Services (Cardiff’s boss at the time), set out to capture CO2 from building heating system exhaust. CleanO2’s carbon capture units (called “CarbinX™ ”) use a chemical process to convert CO2 captured from heating system exhaust into a stable carbonate used in soaps and detergents.
They put their minds together and began formulating an idea. The solution, they reasoned, would have to follow a set of three criteria in order to be successful. First, it needed to create a net benefit to the customer. Second, it would need to be economically self-sufficient and not require government subsidies or tax incentives. Third, the degree of CO2 reduction needed to be meaningful at scale. CarbinX™ was born – the world’s first profitable, micro-scale carbon capture technology.
