Washing Powder by Bio D
UK & USA
Non-Bio Washing Powder – £4.00
Bio-D is an all-round wonder brand that consistently receives the highest rankings across the board in Ethical Consumer’s cleaning product comparisons. Independent, family-owned and ethically-motivated, the company is dedicated to promoting the use of hypoallergenic, environmentally responsible detergents that have the smallest possible impact on our ecosystems in terms of both their everyday use and their manufacturing process. For many good reasons that are explained in detail on their website, all Bio-D products are free from phosphates, EDTA (a form of acid), enzymes, optical brighteners, chlorine bleaches, petroleum-derived additives, and genetically-modified ingredients.
The Concentrated Washing Powder is unscented and non-biological, making it great for those with allergies or sensitive skin and gentle enough for use on baby clothes, muslins, or reusable nappies. It is suitable for machine or hand-washing, and effectively removes day-to-day odours and stains. The powder also comes in a pleasing brown paper bag, though you’ll need to provide your own scoop.
Wherever possible, all raw materials used in Bio-D products are plant-derived, readily biodegradable, and sustainably obtained from renewable sources. All packaging is made from a high percentage of recycled material and is, in itself, fully recyclable. The company also holds the ISO 14001 Environmental Standard.
Bio D never tests on animals, and none of the products contain animal by-products – making them suitable for vegans. The company has been approved by The Vegan Society, Naturewatch Trust, Cruelty Free International, and The World Wildlife Foundation.
