Launched in 2013 by Bondi-based mother of 3, Belinda Everingham, Bondi Wash was inspired by the novel 'Perfume' by Patrick Susskind, which is 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. 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. All scents are completely plant-derived: we never use synthetic fragrance. All the products use Australian native 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. Our products have been designed with integrity and care for you and your home.
