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.

I was so exited to use it so I used it on my first dishes that I had to wash. It foamed very well and washed the dishes very clean, however washing those few dishes with this product was extremely drying to my hands.
My skin felt extremely dried out afterwards.
What ingredient does this product contain that is so extremely drying to the skin?29/07/2020, By OceanLovely fragrance21/07/2020, By KarlaWorks wonders on my dishes and the lemon smell is such a treat!!21/07/2020, By PhaedonGreat, does the job just like normal dish washing liquid, except it's better for the earth.17/07/2020, By KezoA great product that is gentle on the skin but cleans perfectly.17/07/2020, By JadeWonderful product! Repeat buy for sure! The whole family loves the fragrance. Good for nature. We love it and we love the grey recycled and recyclable bottle as well! Great!!16/07/2020, By LuciaI love this product and have been using it for years. I find it works better applied directly to the sponge, instead of squirting some into the water.
Love the smell too..and I'm happy knowing that even if I don't manage to rinse off well , my family are all safe. its doesn't dry my hands out the way some commercial products too.15/07/2020, By LeaineCan I get this on tap?

BePure brand works better.14/01/2020, By SupportGood one11/01/2020, By JohannesGood alternative to traditional commercial products.
Very strong citrus smell (maybe a bit much).
Lathers well, and cleans well.
Need to use slightly more than traditional commercial products to get the same amount of cleaning. But not too much more.
All in all good product and adequately priced.10/01/2020, By SharonLove the smell. The product does not foam a lot and I am struggling to get oil of some dishes.08/01/2020, By AdiI really like this. It is softer on your hands, smell great and is really effective. I am not going back to any other dish washing liquid.24/12/2019, By BronwenI love this product. It lathers well, cuts through the thickest grease and cleans beautifully.12/12/2019, By EvelynThis is a great dish washing liquid. Smells wonderful, foams very well and cleans perfectly. Would definitely recommend it.11/12/2019, By CatBest dish washing liquid, it foams which is very important because you feel like it is doing something !06/12/2019, By cherrylI,ve tried most of the dishwashing liquids available in biodegradable form and this is my favourite, lovely smell, far better the lemon than those with orange, makes for a fresher smell, is pricy in that one does need a lot especially as I wash in cold water, but exceptional for all my dishes and I love it, will recommend it highly.05/12/2019, By SandraThis is bar far the best dish wash liquid. I used to be able to buy it in 5l now I see it is only available in 1l. I preferred the 5 litre bottle because it minimises my plastic use. when empty I just it in half and use it to plant herbs04/12/2019, By KellyI've tried many natural dishwashing liquids and this one has to be tops for me! Cleans well and smells fresh!27/11/2019, By KarenAwesome product, this is not the first time, I buy it. It is awesome, it cleans dishes and smells very nice.27/11/2019, By AnitaI have been using this natural dishwashing liquid for the past month. I really like it. It’s much thicker than commercial products, so a little goes a long way. It cleans dishes efficiently and has a lovely fresh citrusy scent. I shall definitely repurchase.18/11/2019, By LeskaliLevothyroxine Overnight [url=http://genericcial.com]cialis[/url] For Sale Bentyl Dibent18/11/2019, By RianaIt works well, but I find that (comparing it with regular "unhealthy" dish-washing liquid) I need quite a bit more to have the same effect. Compared to the DIY recipes I already tried (using safe ingredients only), it's nice to have some foam, since the homemade ones have no bubbles (perhaps a psychological thing, but I like the foam). And it's good to know that it's safe, and it feels good on my hands. Good that it has a 5-liter option!06/11/2019, By BarbaraI really recommend this product. It smells absolutely amazing and foams satisfyingly. Cleans so well.
24/10/2019, By MarindaThis product really cleans dishes and is cost effective as a little bit goes a long way.10/10/2019, By NickyEffective, soapy, good on greasy dishes. I like the the citrus smell and that my hands aren't destroyed after a marathon dishwashing session. Even my non-eco friends and family approve! Thinner than commercial products but a little goes a long away and it lasts on a sponge for ages!06/10/2019, By CazWorks real well considering its a natural product. Smells fantastic! Doesn't work extremely well with greasy pots and pans.01/10/2019, By MelissaNice and soapy. Smells great too!28/09/2019, By HanlieReally good!26/09/2019, By KarenBeen using this for a while now. Wouldn't change it. It is brilliant.20/09/2019, By RosemaryThis dishwashing liquid is definitely the best! Cleans effectively and is soft and gentle on my hands. Only a small amount is needed so it's economical too.17/09/2019, By GuinevereBEST EVER!!! Highly recommend. I use this to clean everything from kitchen to bathroom, even laundry in a pinch. Smells great, lathers well and price is very good. LOVE!!!16/09/2019, By SibsWorks and lasts13/09/2019, By BronwynGreat dishwash liquid. Smells wonderful and cleans effectively.

Win/win!24/08/2019, By SamanthaAbsolutely love this product, recycled packaging and an earth friendly bio degradable product. Out of all the products I have sifted through this one ticks all the boxes.24/08/2019, By SamanthaLoved the recycled bottle and the product works amazingly well. I have tried a few natural cleaners and this one is by far the best one we have tried so far.13/08/2019, By New choicesthe fantastic smell actually cleans well09/08/2019, By BarbaraThis dishwashing liquid foams up nicely and works very well. Smells good too. I am very satisfied.29/07/2019, By SherissaI like that it comes in a bulk container size. Has a nice smell.

Highly recommended.04/02/2019, By AllanWorks superbly well and leaves dishes smelling lovely. Will carry on using it.09/01/2019, By VeganshmeganTried a few clean dish washer liquids and this is my favorite! Love the smell and lots of foam!03/01/2019, By SianThis works out to be cheaper than expected as you only need a few drops to wash a lot of dishes. It smells great and I prefer using these natural, simple ingredients when it comes to cleaning utensils and anything that comes into contact with food. Makes a good surface cleaner, 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.31/12/2018, By CRSVery happy that it does not affect my skin like other harsh chemicals. I've been using this for 2 months without gloves and my skin is still happy - that makes me happy.07/12/2018, By LisaWorks very well and smells great! Clean toxin-free dishes every time!I generally only hand wash glasses & any pots with stubborn stains. The citrus smell is lovely but better yet the product works really well & I feel good about using safe products like Better Earth.27/10/2018, By TerrySimply the best!25/10/2018, By NilaBeautiful product23/10/2018, By DeeAmazing product!20/10/2018, By NoraThis was my first time trying a natural dishwashing liquid and I loved it. It smells amazing, and my dishes are clean without greasy residue. It is also gentle on my hands, unlike store bought dishwashing liquids.15/10/2018, By GailWorks perfectly and is soft on my hands. Love it.05/10/2018, By Christinegreat value for money smells very nice and super effective06/09/2018, By AstridI have used it in a friend's house and was impressed. This type of Eco-friendly products have a reputation of not performing as well as the classical ones. I also had experienced some other Eco-friendly brands that let me down...But this one is a keeper (on the re-ordering list)30/05/2018, By SueI really love this product! I can't believe I no longer have to wear rubber gloves to do the washing up. My skin is absolutely fine even when I wash with my bare hands. The dishes are clean and the fragrance is lovely.15/05/2018, By claudiaIt works 100% - gentle on hands and environment- maybe you pay a bit more but worth it14/05/2018, By SandyWe are ecstatic - at last an earth friendly dishwashing liquid that foams and works well!26/04/2018, By GretnaNice and foamy and soft on the hands24/04/2018, By LeeSmells divine and a little goes a long way.

So, I will try other natural dishwashing liquids offered here until I find that the one that works best for me. This one is not doing it.07/01/2018, By CatherineThe bulk buy option is excellent value.25/12/2017, By MaryI love this dishwashing liquid. It's good and frothy. I've been using it for some time and will go on.26/11/2017, By DeniseWe always buy the 5L. It last a long time and is an excellent product.

Wi definitely buy this product again.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.

I love it and have recommended this product to all my friends.22/09/2017, By HilaryLove the smell, a very good quality product.29/08/2017, By Karenno complaints! effective cleaner and I love the smell16/07/2017, By KerryGreat product!

It does the job and does not dry my hands out. I have been using it for a few years now.30/05/2017, By Yu-tingDoes not get as soapy as conventional dishwashing liquid and feels like I use a bit more of this product BUT it smells goods and does get the job done, so will definitely continue using it08/04/2017, 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.
