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.

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.

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.

Works superbly well and leaves dishes smelling lovely. Will carry on using it.

Love 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.
