Launched in 2013 by Bondi-based mother of 3, Belinda Everingham, BONDI WASH was inspired by the novel 'Perfume' by Patrick Susskind, which is all about the evocative power of scent. Reading the novel while on holidays in Far North Queensland, and surrounded by unusual native flora, Belinda wondered whether Australia could create beautiful fragrances and products from native botanicals, just like the French have been doing for centuries.
The range was developed drawing on expertise from chemists and using the latest technology in natural ingredients. All products are tested on people with sensitive skin prior to launching.
All BONDI WASH products are 99-100% plant-based. Nothing nasty – the only non plant-derived ingredients are food grade preservatives used to ensure the products are shelf-stable. Products are non-toxic, bio-degradable and contain ingredients sourced from the best Australian suppliers. We avoid palm oil as much as possible – our washes and lotions contain a small amount of palm-oil derived ingredients, using sustainable palm-oil.
BONDI WASH products use Australian bush oils that have interesting fragrances – not your standard eucalyptus or tea tree - which combine beautifully with other oils to create uplifting scents that make washing a delight. These bush oils have amazing properties and have all been independently tested for their anti-bacterial properties.
BONDI WASH products also contain ACTIVE Australian ingredients, like Wattleseed oil, Lilly Pilly extract and Banksia seed oil. These active ingredients are all 100% plant-derived and bring unique and powerful properties to that have only recently been researched and discovered.
