1. Natural body wash doesn’t contain nasty ingredients

More than just a pretty bottle of natural body wash, we have strict standards for all the elements that go into our products. They are some ingredients to avoid in body wash and other beauty products that can disrupt your health. You can rest assured that you will never find these ingredients in our products:


  • They may disrupt hormones, harming fertility and reproductive organs


  • These common foaming agents are known skin irritants.

Propylene Glycol

  • A chemical used in antifreeze for vehicles may cause immunotoxicity and irritation.


  • It may cause thyroid hormonal issues.


  • It prevents metals from being deposited on your scalp and hair, but it can be toxic if ingested.

Harsh Detergents

  • A common detergent for removing dirt and oil used in beauty products is Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, which can be damaging to those with sensitive skin or hair.

Petrochemical Cleansers

  • Often found in dishwashing detergents, industrial soaps or cleaning fluids, petrochemical cleansers dissolve grease dirt like household cleaners make grease disappear, clean glass and help disinfect your bathroom and kitchen. As the name suggests, they’re made using fossil fuels, which is already bad enough. But the worst part is they can harm your hair and skin, the environment and the organisms that inhabit them.

Mineral Oils

  • Another petrochemical-derived chemical, Mineral Oils, are often used to make petrol and other petroleum products. But the main reason to avoid Mineral Oils is their comedogenic and occlusive properties, which means they may block the pores in your skin.


2. Natural body wash is better for the environment

Our plant-based products take advantage of a sustainable resource strategy, which uses the effective natural ingredients our world offers. Why use synthetic chemicals when our plant-based formulations can accomplish the same tasks better than they can?

For example, we have a strict palm oil policy for all our haircare and body wash products. Palm oil is not used in any of our products. However, some ingredients are derivatives of palm oil. To ensure we maintain quality and responsibility for the environment, we use vegan-certified plant-based ingredients that avoid animal cruelty.

Moreover, our products lower sodium levels and undetectable phosphates, making them grey water safe, biodegradable and non-toxic to plant life.


3. Natural body wash is made with better ingredients (although they may sound scary)

Some of the ingredients we feature in our products may sound a little scary, but in reality, they’re perfectly harmless and safe for you and the environment. 

Sodium Benzoate (preservative)

A preservative that prevents mould and bacteria from growing inside our shampoo bottles, conditioner, and body wash.

Many other cosmetics use sodium benzoate to ensure their products last on the shelf and in your bathroom.


This polymer is one of the best substances for controlling frizz, retaining moisture, and adding shine. Because it's not hazardous and grey water safe, we utilise it in our hair care products to soften hair.
