Dual-Acting Formula

In the soil, two types of compaction exist: physical compaction & chemical compaction. The Good Earth Soil Penetrant's dual-acting formula treats both types - not just one or the other. Physical compaction occurs when the tiny soil particles are packed tight together. When new homes are built, big tractors compact the ground really hard. Even walking, mowing, or kids and pets playing can pack the ground down. Soil particles get pushed so close together that air and water can't get in between them. Chemical compaction occurs when chemical bonds hold soil particles together. Think back to high school chemistry - down to tiny molecules. These little bonds hold on so tight that the ground gets super hard.

The Good Earth Soil Penetrant contains a blend of of proprietary ingredients to loosen hard soil.
  • Organic Yucca Extract
  • Organic Kelp Extract
  • Ion Exchange Agent
  • Wetting Agent (Lowers surface tension of water)
  • Calcium Boost


The Good Earth Soil Penetrant works a couple different ways:
  • Lowers the surface tension of water. Normally, water has very high surface tension, meaning that it can't fit into small places. So, when the soil gets compacted, water can't slip through the small spaces in between the soil particles. The Good Earth Soil Penetrant solves this by lowering the surface tension and allowing water to move into tight spaces.
  • Ion-Exchange Agent. The Good Earth Soil Penetrant swaps out two sodium ions for one calcium ion. The two sodium ions dissolve in water and are flushed away. Now, after the two-for-one swap, open airspace is left over - making your soil soft again.

I'm retired and the hard soil in my garden makes it hard for me to dig. This product makes my life so much easier! The day before I want to plant, I just spray this on the ground. The next day it makes digging holes much more manageable.
