Being vegan is more than just about what we eat and we get asked a lot about vegan cleaning products, as sadly not all ‘eco’ type products are vegan friendly too.
We were so pleased to hear about new products from Bio-D – our reviewrs have confirmed that the washing liquid does a fine job and the new soap leaves your hands feeling soft and not dry. We also love that you can buy in very big sizes so less packing too – horah!
Bio-D, the UK’s leading independent producer of eco-friendly detergents, has introduced four new, all-natural products to its range of hypoallergenic, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free cleaning solutions.
The four new products – Pink Grapefruit Washing Up Liquid; Rosemary & Thyme Sanitising Hand Wash; Fresh Juniper Laundry Liquid and Lavender Laundry Liquid – are each made in the UK, from naturally-derived raw materials, and are completely free from synthetic chemicals, preservatives, enzymes and synthetic perfumes.
And like the rest of the Bio-D range, they are registered with the Vegan Society and Cruelty Free International.
Available online at www.biodegradable.biz, and from selected Oxfam stores and independent retailers across the country, Bio-D offers the only 100% hypoallergenic cleaning range in the UK, which means it is suitable for those with even the most sensitive skin.
Pink Grapefruit Washing Up Liquid
The zingy pink grapefruit scent of this washing up liquid is like sunshine in a bottle and the perfect wake-up call to enliven the senses – just the ticket when there’s a stack of dirty dishes to power through. Excellent for everyday use, its concentrated and hypoallergenic formula is tough on burnt-on stains but gentle on skin. (Available in 750ml, 5 litres and 15 litres; priced at £2.19, £11.21, £33.54.)
Rosemary & Thyme Sanitising Hand Wash
The woody fragrance of rosemary and the heady scent of thyme combine in this antibacterial hand wash for an irresistible freshness. Its fast-acting formula kills 99.9% of harmful bacteria including E Coli, Salmonella and MRSA, yet is kind to skin and is food safe. (Available in 500ml and 5 litres; priced at £3.99 and £16.95.)
Fresh Juniper Laundry Liquid and Lavender Liquid
Two new variants of the popular Bio-D washing liquid, this rich, lively-scented pair will each make light work of laundry. The non-biological, concentrated formula can be used in automatics, twin-tubs and for washing delicate fabrics by hand, and works at low temperatures. Containing no optical brighteners or other ‘nasties’, it is suitable for use by those with eczema, asthma and other allergies. (Available in 1 litre and 5 litres; priced at £4.99 and £22.62.)
