Sodium Benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food. But why then do we allow it in our cosmetics? The amount of sodium benzoate used in cosmetics is much smaller than in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. This preservative has been allowed by Ecocert; the Soil Association and BDIH. It has been ranked by the EWG as having a low risk of 1. BUT there are reports circulating on the internet that warn against usage of the preservative even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to be in the loop. The choice is yours to make.

66 out of 69 people would recommend this product23/02/2021, By MinaThis product is good & the fragrance not too overpowering. However, I tend to use it for hand washing (works 100%) & to pre-treat clothes as a soaker. I have found that it does not work that well on stubborn stains when I wash in the machine & sometimes leaves a bit of a residue on some cotton t-shirts. I would buy it again, but I would perhaps first consider laundry powders over this one just yet.15/02/2021, By CandiceProducts seems to work very well. I have used it on some seriously dirty clothes and it does the job and smells great! Wish the smell lasted as strong once clothes are dry.11/02/2021, By JianineI bought a 5 litre container of this on a special a while back - really a good product. Used a tiny bit to wash an old towel on which one of our cats had urinated (whilst taking him to the vet), and the smell is completely gone.28/01/2021, By TrudyLove this product . Lovely soft laundry, no pasticy feeling29/12/2020, By BronwynThis is good value for money because you only need a little and you don't need additional fabric softener. It leaves laundry smelling lovely. It doesn't always get stains or really dirty marks out, but when pre-soaked or treated everything comes clean. Really good product I would highly recommend.17/12/2020, By KhailaSmells amazing and I've felt a real difference with how soft my clothes feel, so that definitely worked!10/12/2020, By TheaWorks great and smells amazing!16/11/2020, By JianineNice that one can purchase a 5-litre container - makes it a bit cheaper. Also good that this is a biodegradable product, as we collect and re-use our water in the garden.26/10/2020, By IlseI have been using this product for many years now and I am very satisfied. I also reuse all my waters for my garden so it gives us peace of mind knowing that it will not damage our garden.13/10/2020, By WandaSuch a great range! Completely natural ingredients and toxin free. Works like a dream.07/10/2020, By KirstenLove this product - I've always preferred liquid detergents but this one smells good, less harmful and biogradeable. Good for hubby's sensitive skin09/09/2020, By IlseNot only does it wash clean, it is also economic as one uses just a little and there is no extra conditioner needed. Then there is also the peace of mind that I can re-use the water for my garden, So it is a win win situation all the way. Recommended.05/09/2020, By Vaw001Smells wonderful. The insects seem to be attracted to my laundry whenever i use this product. Lol.
Love that its eco friendly and doesnt dry or irritate the skin.
However, more than 30ml of detergent needs to be added to the washing machine in order to clean well.28/08/2020, By KristelExcellent product, smells great and includes a softener. Value for money and goes a long way! Glad I can purchase it in a 5 lt. This product is one of my favorites.19/08/2020, By JennyI actually use this as my softener and the triple orange bio-detergent as my detergent. The combination works for me and leaves clothes smelling wonderful.07/08/2020, By TriciaI love this product. And it is easy as it is 2 products in 1. My clothes smell amazing and the colour last. Definately recommend it.30/07/2020, By OceanReal stuff09/06/2020, By GoodnessFragrant clothes28/05/2020, By RockImpressive results21/05/2020, By Mrs Foxthis is an amazing product!04/04/2020, By BlueImpressive results01/04/2020, By WinnerClothes seem much better out of the laundry19/03/2020, By JeneceI swap between two "green" laundry liquids. I like this one because it is a bit thicker and includes the conditioner. Smells lovely and cleans pretty well!04/03/2020, By KellySecond time buying this. Works well on darks not so great with whites30/01/2020, By WandaWorks well. Will definitely use it again.15/01/2020, By SupportWell done14/12/2019, By SamanthaAbsolutely love this product and their range, leaves a fresh smell that isn't overpowering and I can use it on my pooches bedding.
Can do your washing and refuse without feeling too guilty about your carbon footprint seeing you reducing it.07/11/2019, By ELove how this stuff smells but have had some issues with residue and having to rewash loads of washing. Bought this for a second time and it seems as if the second batch was less effective than the first. Does not do well with toddler clothes or my husband's shirts. Have been buying this and the triple orange laundry gel. This one lasts longer, but will go with the triple orange from now on.05/11/2019, By JolaBe wary. I used this gel in cold water while hand washing and it left bleach-like spots on a black dress.21/10/2019, By ColleenI only use cold water in my washing machine and this product is not ideal. It has left marks on my clothing. I will probably use it for hand washing though.13/10/2019, By SamanthaI have tried a number of green products but this one is by far the best. I have even thrown my sneakers in the wash and voila! Very happy and impressed and love the smell.
This is by far one of the best products on the market.06/10/2019, By SamanthaIn my quest to find an eco-friendly laundry liquid that could be used in my grey-water system, I was looking for something that smelt good, didn't just massage the clothes but cleaned them too.
I set about ordering four different eco laundry liquids from Faithful to Nature.
Over a period of a month, Patricia, my housekeeper, used a different product with each wash, in her quest to find the best one for us. In the end she decided on Better Earth. She felt that it cleaned best and when she hung up the washing on the line, she always got a waft of lovely aroma.30/09/2019, By AmyThis is such a great product! We've bought it a few times - the 5L lasted about 6 months for a household of 4! Our laundry smells wonderful and we use the grey water in the garden - it's a win whichever way you look at it!18/09/2019, By KimLove this product, clothes are clean and smell great with no harm to the environment. I use very little and it works well for hand washing clothes, so it is also easy to take a small amount in a sample bottle when travelling12/08/2019, By AvaFantastic smell and the laundry was so soft and fresh. I will buy again.01/05/2019, By JennieNot convinced. Used it to wash a load of brand new clothes to take out the shop smell. After washing they still smelt like shop, so had to rewash with ordinary washing powder.10/02/2019, By RosemaryThis is a really lovely laundry gel. It's the first time I've tried it and I am very impressed. Only a tiny amount is needed and it leaves the washing clean and soft.10/02/2019, By TriciaI bought this product for the first time this week. It smells great and it is a 2-in-1 so I don't have to add fabric softener as it is already included.02/01/2019, By LizetteThis product works well. Doesn't leave any residue on clothing and I save on fabric softener. Love the 5l option too.01/01/2019, By CatherineWorks well - I especially like the 5l option as I don't have to order as often, and I can re-use the smaller bottles for my house and in the cottage I rent out.24/12/2018, By Ilse (Perrys Leisure cc)I am very satisfied with this products and on top of that it gives me peace of mind for the environment especially so as I use all my used water in the garden.22/10/2018, By RobynIt does everything you'd want from a detergent, am sold on it15/10/2018, By IlseExellent product. I use only this product.15/10/2018, By JackieIt gets the laundry clean and it smells nice, what more can you ask?Very economical as you don't use a lot, don't need conditioner and it's far superior to the harsh 'brands'.05/10/2018, By LynnVery economical as you don't use a lot, don't need conditioner and it's far superior to the harsh 'brands'. I would not use anything else now.23/08/2018, By Ilse (Perrys Leisure cc)I have tried many natural laundry products on the market, this one seems to be the best value for money. My housekeeper insisted I buy this one again, so I trust this one is the best so far.07/08/2018, By IlseThis is the best natural Laundry Gel I have ever used. Even my househelp said that it was the best product.13/07/2018, By MariskaLiving in a biosphere reserve, you have to be conscious about what goes back into the environment. I am also very impressed with how well it cleans and the lovely fragrance of the laundry.04/06/2018, By SmitThe best, gentle enough for baby clothes also. Removes stains better than conventional washing powder and you also don’t need softener anymore!06/04/2018, By PenelopeI only use eco friendly products as, living in Cape Town, I use grey water for the garden. I am very happy with this gel, cleans well and smells lovely30/03/2018, By NadiaA beautifully scented eco friendly laundry gel, buying it in bulk for the washing. I tend to soak stains in my clothes before laundry day, and have noticed no problems with clothes coming clean using this gel!04/03/2018, By DaveIt’s great for normal washing. Heavily soled clothes need a normal washing powder. Good the our grass in the western Cape.dave14/02/2018, By LeneI've been using this gel for three months and really can't fault it. The laundry comes out clean and smelling great, and the gray water from the laundry machine is much better to use in drought-stricken Cape Town - doesn't kill the grass.08/02/2018, By LynnLove the smell, washes well without needing conditioner, and is very economical. Perfect product for these times of water shortages when the laundry water is being recycled.29/01/2018, By VarshaAwesome gel to use with my machine24/01/2018, By IlseWonderful for many reasons: Smell, Clean, Use of water in garden, Economic, Soft and peace of mind of knowing that it is environmentally friendly, etc.........07/01/2018, By CatherineI love that I can buy this in bulk, it smells fantastic and lasts for ages.01/01/2018, By IngridHave been using this for ages and really love it - plus it's garden-safe27/11/2017, By LucilleWorks well, but not so well on heavily stained / soiled clothes. Like it as I don't need to add softner.08/10/2017, By LucilleI love this product, you need a very little quantity for your clothes to have a flowery fresh smell and they come out soft without adding any extra conditioner. And the grey water that comes out of your laundry machine can be used for everything including watering your plants!!! I love it and have recommended this product to all my friends.20/09/2017, By NickolaThis was the first environmentally friendly washing detergent i tried. I chose it for the high reviews, however it does not clean well at all. This product does not remove odours from sports or gym clothing. So i cant recommend it for that reason.28/08/2017, By MaureenExcellent product.
No need to use a lot of this gel.
Leaves laundry smelling lovely and soft to the touch.
Will certainly buy again.11/07/2017, By NatileeI've tried so many different laundry cleaners and this product is by far my favourite. It works great, it smells amazing and a little goes a long way. And there is no need to add a softening agent as this cleans and softens!28/02/2017, By TandyA little goes a long way with this laundry gel, and no need to add extra fabric softener. Because it is eco-friendly, we pipe our wash-cycle water straight into the garden with no risk of harming our plants :)02/03/2016, By TinaOur clothes smell great29/01/2016, By MaritzaI purchase this in bulk and it lasts quite a while (we are a family of 5). Clothes are clean, soft and smell wonderful! Brilliant for towels.17/10/2013, By BronwenThis is a great product! It lasts for ages and cleans the laundry really well. Leaves clothes smelling so fresh and clean.27/08/2011, By TanyaI have recently come across this product and really like it! cleans well and leaves a lovely fresh smell on the clothes.
