This dishwashing liquid is readily biodegradable but cleans your dishes perfectly. It is easy on your hands and the environment but tough on grease. It does not leave a greasy film on your dishes either.

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.

Great alternative to the usual that would normally be bought in a supermarket. Will definitely order and use again!
07/10/2020, By Kirsty
Love this - the smell, the way it bubbles and most importantly the way it cleans. Just ordered 5l.
23/09/2020, By Rosemary
This is the best dishwashing liquid, cleans and lathers well and has a lovely fresh fragrance.
09/09/2020, By Steph
Lathers well and cuts through grease, really economical too!
01/09/2020, By Lynne
Great product. Prefer it to the other organic dishwashing liquids.
31/08/2020, By K Smith
Out of the different products I've used that are suited for septic tank systems, this one actually works to get dishes clean
25/08/2020, By Jess
This is good for the dishes and gentle on the skin. Smells amazing.
11/08/2020, By Yvonne
I absolutely love this product. It foams well, cleans well, and it smells like Sorrento!
06/08/2020, By Mon
Love it
30/07/2020, By Charlotte
I ordered the Better Earth dishwashing liquid and received it today. 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 Ocean
Lovely fragrance
21/07/2020, By Karla
Works wonders on my dishes and the lemon smell is such a treat!!
21/07/2020, By Phaedon
Great, does the job just like normal dish washing liquid, except it's better for the earth.
17/07/2020, By Kezo
A great product that is gentle on the skin but cleans perfectly.
17/07/2020, By Jade
Wonderful 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 Lucia
I 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 Leaine
Can I get this on tap? Love it sooo much, smells amazing and cleans anything!
11/07/2020, By Karen
Probably my third time buying this product.
Love that I can buy in bulk. It foams up nicely.
Texture can be thin and gloopy but that doesn't affect the product.
08/07/2020, By SP
smell awesome
03/07/2020, By JADE
Smells amazing, very gentle and lasts
17/06/2020, By Claudine
This is probably the fourth or fifth time I'm buying this washing up liquid.. where two of these times I bought 5L containers! This stuff is amazing and i will always recommend it!
15/06/2020, By Rosemary
The best dishwashing liquid, foams well and cleans perfectly. Just not wild about the bulky size and colour of the 1 litre bottle.
14/06/2020, By Ashley
It foams well and smells great! Good alternative to standard, store bought dishwashing liquids.
09/06/2020, By Goodness
Gentle detergent
01/06/2020, By Sandi
Best eco friendly dishwashing liquid I have tried so far. Produces lots of soap bubbles which last for the whole washing up session. Effectively cleans grease and dirt off pots and pans.
30/05/2020, By Johannes
Effective and does the expected job well. Love the moderate to strong citrus smell. A little goes an acceptable way. Well priced.
28/05/2020, By Rock
Effective washing
11/05/2020, By Monique
great product, makes a nice foam and lasts a bit longer than other organic equivalents.
11/05/2020, By L
I liked this. it foamed, which I liked. Cleaned well. lasted as well as the other natural liquids I have tried. I thought it was reasonably priced. Smelt fine. All round, all good.

03/05/2020, By Marius
I'm using this for more than just dishes!
29/04/2020, By Kirsty
Love this dishwashing liquid. Don't use as much as commercial products and doesn't leave a soapy residue. Still foams nicely and smells great :)
28/04/2020, By Jocelyn
No more sticky dishes
27/04/2020, By regan
Good stuff
24/04/2020, By Fadimatou
love it
23/04/2020, By T
I absolutely love this product. I’m allergic to sunlight liquid which makes me cough for days after using it. But this dishwashing soap is so gentle but highly effective in cleaning. Doesn’t irritate the skin at all and smells divine. Highly recommended. I’ll never use anything else
17/04/2020, By Diana
Smells great, foams well and I have squeaky clean dishes.
04/04/2020, By Blue
Lovely lemon smell
31/03/2020, By Winner
Good stuff
24/03/2020, By Leigh
Works well and leaves glass super shiny. It is a bit runnier than I'm used to though, so be careful when applying it, not to apply too much..
20/03/2020, By Tami
Lovely smell and foams wonderfully!
19/03/2020, By Anne
Love this product.
19/03/2020, By Rowena

Very good product. Cute grease with less product
02/03/2020, By Lookout
I'm allergic to all normal liquid soaps but I have no trouble at all with this one and it does a good job & has a nice smell
24/02/2020, By Jianine
The smell of this dishwashing liquid is fantastic - lemony and fresh! Foams nicely and cleans well. Bought the 5 litre on special a while back, so the price was good too.
24/02/2020, By Mel
Bought the 5 litre bottle and it's lasted for ages! Great results, no complaints.
16/02/2020, By Rowena
Washes really well
14/02/2020, By Cas
Fantastic product, definitely a thumbs up from me
27/01/2020, By Marina
Good product love the 5l
25/01/2020, By Ava
It cleans well but doesn't last/ You have to use quite a lot to get desired results. BePure brand works better.
14/01/2020, By Support
Good one
11/01/2020, By Johannes
Good 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 Sharon
Love the smell. The product does not foam a lot and I am struggling to get oil of some dishes.
08/01/2020, By Adi
I 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 Bronwen
I love this product. It lathers well, cuts through the thickest grease and cleans beautifully.
12/12/2019, By Evelyn
This is a great dish washing liquid. Smells wonderful, foams very well and cleans perfectly. Would definitely recommend it.
11/12/2019, By Cat
Best dish washing liquid, it foams which is very important because you feel like it is doing something !
06/12/2019, By cherryl
I,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 Sandra
This 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 herbs
04/12/2019, By Kelly
I've tried many natural dishwashing liquids and this one has to be tops for me! Cleans well and smells fresh!
27/11/2019, By Karen
Awesome product, this is not the first time, I buy it. It is awesome, it cleans dishes and smells very nice.
27/11/2019, By Anita
I 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 Riana
It 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 Barbara
I really recommend this product. It smells absolutely amazing and foams satisfyingly. Cleans so well.
24/10/2019, By Marinda
This product really cleans dishes and is cost effective as a little bit goes a long way.
10/10/2019, By Nicky
Effective, 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 Caz
Works real well considering its a natural product. Smells fantastic! Doesn't work extremely well with greasy pots and pans.
01/10/2019, By Melissa
Nice and soapy. Smells great too!
28/09/2019, By Hanlie
Really good!
26/09/2019, By Karen
Been using this for a while now. Wouldn't change it. It is brilliant.
20/09/2019, By Rosemary
This 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 Guinevere
BEST 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 Sibs
Works and lasts
13/09/2019, By Bronwyn
Great dishwash liquid. Smells wonderful and cleans effectively. Great on your hands too!
03/09/2019, By Tegwan
I wash my non-organic vegetables with this.
02/09/2019, By Vanessa
I love this product. Fresh natural lemon smell. No harsh soapy detergent for your hands.
26/08/2019, By Lushan
Cuts grease like no other detergent I have ever used, smells lovely, soft on your hands and very economical. Win/win!
24/08/2019, By Samantha
Absolutely 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 Samantha
Loved 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 choices
the fantastic smell actually cleans well
09/08/2019, By Barbara
This dishwashing liquid foams up nicely and works very well. Smells good too. I am very satisfied.
29/07/2019, By Sherissa
I like that it comes in a bulk container size. Has a nice smell. Cleans well.
08/07/2019, By Melissa
Works just as well as conventional dishwashing liquid. Lovely citrus smell.
03/07/2019, By Dee
Amazing love this product works better than I expected
12/06/2019, By Giselle
We ordered the 5liter and was very pleased with it. The smell is fantastic! Think one use a bit more than needed because it is thin. Love it and will use it again.
03/06/2019, By Melissa
Lovely product. Will be buying again for sure!
31/05/2019, By Es
Wonderful lemon fresh smell. Cleans very well.
25/04/2019, By Cat
Great product, gentle but effective
16/04/2019, By Emma
Great product. Cleans well, smells lovely.
07/04/2019, By Karen
Love the smell and it really foams! So gentle on my hands too!
27/03/2019, By Denise
We have been using this product for quite a few years now and it’s so good. The citrus fragrance is so fresh. It’s a winner!
10/02/2019, By Rosemary
This is definitely the best dishwashing liquid, it has a lovely citrus fragrance and cleans the dishes perfectly. Highly recommended.
04/02/2019, By Allan
Works superbly well and leaves dishes smelling lovely. Will carry on using it.
09/01/2019, By Veganshmegan
Tried a few clean dish washer liquids and this is my favorite! Love the smell and lots of foam!
03/01/2019, By Sian
This 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 Catherine
Works 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 CRS
Very 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 Lisa
Works very well and smells great! Clean toxin-free dishes every time!
25/10/2018, By Nila
Beautiful product
23/10/2018, By Dee
Amazing product!
20/10/2018, By Nora
This 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 Gail
Works perfectly and is soft on my hands. Love it.
05/10/2018, By Christine
great value for money smells very nice and super effective
06/09/2018, By Astrid
I 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 Sue
I 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 claudia
It works 100% - gentle on hands and environment- maybe you pay a bit more but worth it
14/05/2018, By Sandy
We are ecstatic - at last an earth friendly dishwashing liquid that foams and works well!
26/04/2018, By Gretna
Nice and foamy and soft on the hands
24/04/2018, By Lee
Smells divine and a little goes a long way. Leaves dishes squeaky clean!
20/04/2018, By Cat
Love this dish washing liquid, smells great and foams and is gentle on the hands
30/03/2018, By Nadia
I have been using this product for many years. I love how it smells and how soft my hands feel even after washing dishes.
26/01/2018, By Catriona
Foams and smells great plus it can be diluted
09/01/2018, By Titilayo
I have bought Better Earth Dishwashing Liquid several times and, even though I love the smell and it does get the job done, I find the consistency quite runny and it also not very foamy. 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 Catherine
The bulk buy option is excellent value.
25/12/2017, By Mary
I 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 Denise
We always buy the 5L. It last a long time and is an excellent product. Love the fragrance and my dishes sparkle.
17/10/2017, By Peta
Absolutely love this product. Dishes are squeaky clean and smells great. I love that the bubbles don't disappear as soon as you wash your first dish.
16/10/2017, By Nicolla
Great product - smells amazing and now I can safely use grey water to water the garden.
09/10/2017, By Bernadette
Lovely smell & it doesn't dry out your hands. Wi definitely buy this product again.
08/10/2017, By Lucille
I 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.
22/09/2017, By Hilary
Love the smell, a very good quality product.
29/08/2017, By Karen
no complaints! effective cleaner and I love the smell
16/07/2017, By Kerry
Great product! Cleans well, smells great and find it also foams like normal dishwashing liquid, when a lot of other natural ones don't.
11/07/2017, By Janet
This is the best washing up liquid I have ever used. 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-ting
Does 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 it
08/04/2017, By Hanlie
My 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 -lee
Doesn irritate my skin, clean dishes, and smells great. Im very impressed with this
07/11/2016, By Max
Smells 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 Karin
Perfect dishwasher - works well and smells so good.
16/06/2016, By Gwyneth
Great 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 Candice
I love this dishwashing washes well and I love that its natural and I feel safe using it.
21/04/2016, By Yaksha
I have tried 3 so far and this is the best because it farms well.
13/04/2016, By Pauline
Product just smells delicious! Cleans very well. Love it!
23/02/2016, By Sandra
This 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 less
14/02/2016, By Nush
Smells lovely, lasts forever and cuts grease. I buy this product regularly.
11/02/2016, By shayne
Received 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 Denise
It works really well.
18/08/2015, By Catherine
Ive tried quite a few washing liquids and this is the best. It cleans really greasy and dirty dishes properly!
31/03/2015, By Lelanie
Really very good for a natural product. I didn expect it to have so much foam and cleaning power.
14/10/2014, By Janet
This 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 Liesl
I am very happy with this product. Lathers very well in hot water. Only downside is that it is a bit pricey.
23/10/2013, By Bronwin
great product but so is Earthsap and thats way cheaper than this one.
17/10/2013, By Bronwen
This 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 Masadi
The 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 Caroline
This 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 Mary
I love this product too - MUCH better than any other regular - or organic - dishwashing liquid I have tried. I am a convert.
14/10/2011, By Andri
Not the cheapest, but definately the best!
28/09/2011, By Sally
It'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 CHivonne
I 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 launch
14/09/2011, By Robyn
This 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 Roane
We 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 Ilze
The 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!
08/08/2011, By Laura
Amazing smell, works really well
06/08/2011, By Nirvana
Love 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 debi
it'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 Jolene
I 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.
14/07/2011, By Prem
Fabulous product. Value for money. Will definately buy it again!!!
28/06/2011, By Liesl
I 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 Steven
This 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.
10/02/2011, By Petro
Love it!!!
31/01/2011, By JANE
This is a really great product. It foams nicely (and the foam lasts), cleans dishes well and has a wonderful smell. Does not dry your hands out either. Give this product a try - you will not be disappointed.
