Did You Know
- Cocamidopropyl betaine is a co-surfactant (It helps to make products lather.) It is approved by the Soil Association, Ecocert and BDIH. This ingredient is extracted from coconut oil. It has an excellent safety record and is very well tolerated. It is approved under the Nordic Swan mark scheme that measures the environmental and health impact of cosmetic ingredients.
- Decyl glucoside is a surfactant (that means that it is a foaming Agent.) It is approved by Ecocert and BDIH as a natural product. It is made by combining a fraction of palm or coconut oil with glucose. The product has been tested for biodegradability and found to be freely and rapidly biodegradable. This means that it will generally be degraded into its components (fatty acid and glucose) in between 4 and 8 hours.
Water (Aqua), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Decyl Glucoside, Citrus Sinensis (orange) Peel Oil, Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate*, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Oil
*Ingredient Notice: Sodium benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food, so why do we allow it in some of our cosmetics and cleaning products? Firstly, the amount of sodium benzoate used in cosmetics or cleaning products is much smaller than that used in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the sodium benzoate molecules are too large to be absorbed by your 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. However, there are reports circulating online that warn against usage of sodium benzoate even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to fully informed and empowered. The choice is yours to make.
34 out of 36 people would recommend this product08/04/2017, By HanlieMy first try with something other than the trusted Sunlight Liquid. Afraid I am not too excited. The water gets very oily after washing only a few dishes.17/11/2016, By Megan -leeDoesn irritate my skin, clean dishes, and smells great. Im very impressed with this07/11/2016, By MaxSmells good, super gentle on hands, makes a good sink full of bubbles considering its natural and cleans wonderfully. I can accurately comment on how long it lasts as my husband was a bit enthusiastic with the amounts he used come his turn to wash dishes (though as a bonus my whole house smelled like oranges), but even taking that into account, my bottle has lasted a month so far and is still going. I also had a terrible rash on my hands from the store bought stuff and I kid you not, it cleared up within a couple of days of changing to this. :)24/09/2016, By KarinPerfect dishwasher - works well and smells so good.16/06/2016, By GwynethGreat product. Cleans well - and the fact that it is so environmentally friendly is especially good because we recycle all our grey water.22/04/2016, By CandiceI love this dishwashing liquid...it washes well and I love that its natural and I feel safe using it.21/04/2016, By YakshaI have tried 3 so far and this is the best because it farms well.13/04/2016, By PaulineProduct just smells delicious! Cleans very well. Love it!23/02/2016, By SandraThis is a great dishwasher - last well and cleans very well. Is a little harsher on the skin than the earthsap dishwasher, but this one washes the dishes better and you use less14/02/2016, By NushSmells lovely, lasts forever and cuts grease. I buy this product regularly.11/02/2016, By shayneReceived a sample of this product and am very impressed. Washes will in cold and hot water if you just add some to your sponge and do the dishes like I do. For greasy plates it works best with hot water ( please note I dont cook with oil , i use butter, so i am referring to moderatly greasy plates) and it does the job . Smells great too and love the idea that it better for the earth and gentle on my hands. I also feel better washing my sons juice bottle with this but will need to research the dangers of the sodium benzoate before I make a purchase.21/12/2015, By DeniseIt works really well.18/08/2015, By CatherineIve tried quite a few washing liquids and this is the best. It cleans really greasy and dirty dishes properly!31/03/2015, By LelanieReally very good for a natural product. I didn expect it to have so much foam and cleaning power.14/10/2014, By JanetThis is definitely the best washing up liquid. Kind to the hands and environment. Cleans very dirty pots pans with ease. I use it all the time.09/12/2013, By LieslI am very happy with this product. Lathers very well in hot water. Only downside is that it is a bit pricey.17/10/2013, By BronwenThis is the BEST dishwashing liquid i have ever used. I will never use any other every again. It lathers well, gets rid of grease and grime just as well as commercial stuff and smells heavenly!06/10/2013, By MasadiThe product lathers well and since I wash my dishes in very hot water I don have a problem with greasy dishes. I haven used a commercial dish product since trying this one!23/11/2011, By CarolineThis is a fantastic product, it smells beautiful and does a great job of cleaning, with very little used at a time.23/10/2011, By MaryI love this product too - MUCH better than any other regular - or organic - dishwashing liquid I have tried. I am a convert.28/09/2011, By SallyIt's not quite as good as I had hoped, or that I expected, based on feedback I read about the product on your website. While it probably is slightly better than some of the other earth-friendly products on the market, I do not find it very good on greasy dishes.26/09/2011, By CHivonneI will never go back to regular dishwashing liquid. This product is amazing, you use the smallest amount and it foams and cleans brilliantly! Even my domestic wants to buy it for her house :) Well done Better Earth - looking forward to the dishwashing powder launch14/09/2011, By RobynThis is the best dishwashing liquid even in cold water. Smell, consistency doesn dry your skin. Best to squeeze it directly onto cloth/sponge. No ring around basin. Love it!31/08/2011, By RoaneWe also found that it was not very good for cleaning grease off of dishes, and wouldn clean quite so well. We had to use a lot of it at a time for it to work well, but the foam wouldn last. :(18/08/2011, By IlzeThe best dishwashing liquid I have used so far! Highly recommended-foams and cleans perfectly even if you use only a little, awesome smell, does not dry your hands and excellent value for money! What more can one want? I am a convert!06/08/2011, By NirvanaLove this product for when I have to do hand washing. Foams well when applied to the sponge. Love the lemongrass fragrance! Natural/safe products are never as good as the commercial nasty ones but this one comes close for me.31/07/2011, By debiit's fabulous. no more irritated hands after doing the washing up. fragrance is fabulous too. (oh, and it works really really well!)24/07/2011, By JoleneI absolutely love this dishwashing liquid. It cleans brilliantly, it has a great smell and best of all its gently on my eczema prone hands!! I wash all my babies bottles with this and hot water and my hands are still fine after all the washing.28/06/2011, By LieslI love this product! It foams well, has a gorgeous fragrance which turns washing the dishes into an aromatherapy session! It is gentle on the hands, but cleans your dishes beautifully. I will highly recommend this product.13/04/2011, By StevenThis product also has Sodium Benzoate in it, i just purchased it and noticed. Was not informed on the website. Otherwise its still a great product but i would rather go for the better earth one as it doesn't have any chemicals.
