Does the job in on low temperatures. Great for sensitive skin and for the environment. Highly recommended. Just wish postage could be cheaper......but you can't change postal costs! Review by Ms. Shelley Maxwell (Posted on 22/11/2016)
Wonderful stuff!!

This product is just brilliant - I Love the packaging - so many 'eco' products are sold in plastic containers. It works superbly too - no complaints at all. Except that it is a bit expensive but until somewhere else starts offering a similar product cheaper that ticks all the same boxes, I'll def still be buying this one :) Review by Jade5 (Posted on 22/11/2016)
Good value Good product

Great powder. Have used it for 2m now and it's very economical. I put it in a tub and use a ground coffee scoop to measure - never need a full scoop. We have soft water. Add in some Nappy Fresh and you can sanitise bedding & underwear etc Saves buying bio and non-bio in large quantities. Will use regularly from now on. Review by SuBich (Posted on 22/11/2016)
The only laundry powder for eczema prone skin

Been using this since my 5 year old developed eczema as a baby...hubby has it too and this is the only Eco powder which doesn't aggravate their skin. It's truly Eco too unlike a lot of supposed eco products on the market. Cleans clothes well leaving them smelling fresh but not perfumed. Great product. Review by foodiemum (Posted on 22/11/2016)
Praise be for Bio D

This is such an obvious, simple idea it's astonishing that no-one has thought of it before: a concentrated, hypoallergenic, biodegradable, non-toxic laundry powder which works and which comes in a brown paper bag rather than a plastic bottle (as so many 'ecological' and conventional laundry products do).

If you have sensitive skin and/or a sensitive nose and/or you would rather not pollute the planet with more toxic chemicals and plastic then this is the product for you.

To make your laundry smell something other than simply clean, add a few drops of essential oil to the powder before starting the wash.

Our preferred washing powder
Rating
We have been using this powder in an automatic washing machine for over a year. We have softish water and use 60ml per wash- we have a lovely 60ml plastic scoop. Normal levels of dirt are removed including collars and cuffs, at 40C, but the odd heavily soiled clothing gets a prior soak in a pretreatment powder.

The 1kg pack is ABOUT 1000ml, so around 16 washes. For us six kg of powder is over a years worth of washing - hardly expensive, good to the environment, good to our clothes, good to us. None biological -we have had some sensitivity to those. No enzymes and no perfumes.

The powder is sold in paper bags which Amazon bundle together, three paper bags inside a plastic bag, which is folded over and taped- not properly sealed. For long term storage (we have a damp cellar) we heat seal each paper bag into its own plastic bag.

And this is a vegan product, BUAV approved (no animals tested).

What we leave out

Based on well-documented findings in Canada, USA, Belgium, Scandinavia and other parts of Western Europe, we DO NOT USE any of the following ingredients.

Phosphates: Used as water softeners and to improve cleaning, they can stimulate excessive growth of algae in the receiving waters. These algae often grow in such great numbers that the water becomes starved of oxygen, killing fish and plant life. This condition is known as eutrophication and exists in Lake Erie, North America. Lake Erie is practically devoid of all marine life.

E.D.T.A. (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid): This is sometimes used as a substitute for, but also in addition to, phosphates. It is a sequestering agent that attracts heavy metals such as lead and mercury, both of which have known carcinogenic properties. These heavy metals can eventually find their way back into water supplies and are extremely difficult to remove completely.

Enzymes: Enzymes are present in all living organisms. They can and do cause severe skin irritations and asthma attacks. In the manufacturing process, enzymes can be genetically engineered and have been known to cause pulmonary haemorrhaging.

Optical Brighteners: Used in Laundry products to give an illusion of "whiteness", they attach themselves to fabric to reflect "White Light". Clothes only appear cleaner. Optical Brighteners are extremely difficult to biodegrade and can cause severe skin irritation. They can also cause mutations to microorganisms in receiving waters.

Chlorine Bleaches: These are contained in conventional Toilet Cleaners, Sanitizers, Nappy Powders, Washing Powders and Dishwasher Detergents. During the breakdown of these types of bleach carcinogenic, toxic substances are formed,which are akin to the banned pesticide D.D.T.

Petroleum-derived Additives: Most conventional household cleaners contain petroleum-derived additives and detergents. These often break down incompletely and contain toxic impurities that are highly irritant, cause allergic reactions and can endanger plant and animal life.

In addition to the ingredients listed above, the following ingredients are found in the majority of conventional, propriety brands of Soaps, Toiletries and Cosmetics.

Chemical Plasticisers: Added to soaps to make them more malleable and easier to machine mould.

Formaldehyde: Traditionally used to preserve corpses, formaldehyde is used to prolong the life of many conventional products!

Glycerin or Glycerine: Unless specifically stated that it is from a vegetable source, glycerin or glycerine will be obtained from the rendered carcases of dead animals.

Lanolin: Extracted from the processed wool from both dead and live animals.

Sodium Tallowate: Made from water, caustic soda and the rendered fat from dead animals.

Synthetic Dyes: Make finished products more visually appealing.

Synthetic Perfumes: Cheap substitutes for natural oils and essences.

Titanium Dioxide: A colouring agent that enhances the opacity of products to make them look uniformly clearer. Causes pollution in water courses

You do not need to use products containing these noxious ingredients. Use Bio-D products.
