Default Pulse Oxy Strong replaced Sun Oxygen Cleaner??

Has anyone used Pulse Oxy Strong? I usually buy the Sun Oxygen cleaner from Family Dollar, but they seem to have stopped carrying Sun and now have Pulse instead. I called the company that makes it and they claim that is is only sodium percarbonate with no added dyes or perfumes, but my nose says otherwise. There is a slight fragrance to it, and when I have used it, it almost smells like citrus while it is actively working. I'm on the fence as to whether I should use it. Also, It doesn't seem to pack the same punch the Sun Oxygen cleaner does.

Any thoughts/observations? Anyone else see their Family Dollar supply of Sun drying up?

You can still get Sun Oxy cleaner at Walmart.

It is not at the local Dollar store here anymore either. I was told they are repackaging/rebranding their products but the contents of the tub is the same. I'm not sure if I believe that as it seems to be a lot smaller particle size in the new stuff. I haven't notices a fragrance but then again I don't make it a habit of going around and sniffing fine white powder. It still seems to clean the same and I guess that is all that really matters.

I may be ignorant but that doesn't stop me from having an opinion
