FAQ - BONDI WASH (Eng)
Are Bondi Wash products safe for children/pregnant women/sensitive skin?
Yes, Bondi Wash products are all designed to be gentle on sensitive skin. However there is always a risk that skin may react to even the most natural ingredients. If you have concerns about a potential reaction, we suggest testing a small amount of product on a patch of skin and waiting 24 hours to ensure that there will no be reaction with more extensive use. If irritation does occur, please rinse with water and discontinue use.
We fragrance our products with essential oil blends (never synthetic fragrance). Each blend contains 6 or more essential oils. Concentration of any one essential oil is low. Products are safe to use on babies (although we suggest over 1 month) and pregnant women.
What percentage alcohol does the Mist Spray have?
Our Mist Spray has less than 10% alcohol. It is one of the key features of it - it will be much less drying than traditional hand sanitisers, yet still meets the independent testing standard 'kills 99.99% of germs'.
Which independent lab test standards do the products meet?
Many of our products have been independently lab tested against both bacteria and influenza. These tests are also undertaken in markets where we sell the range as local testing is always required to make these claims.
- Bench Spray - kills 99.99% of germs
- Hand Spray - kills 99.99% of germs
- Mist Spray - kills 99.9% of germs (Stock in Cleanout Beauty)
- Yoga Mat Spray - kills 99.9% of germs
- Travel Spray - kills 99.9% of germs
Are Bondi Wash products anti-bacterial?
Yes, each Bondi Wash scent has been designed around an anti-bacterial Australian bush oil. Independent lab tests have confirmed the Bench Sprays and Hand Spray meet the standard ‘kills 99.99% of germs’ and the Mist Sprays and Yoga Mat Sprays meet the standard ‘kills 99.9% of germs’ or higher.
Are Bondi Wash Products tested on animals?
No, Bondi Wash products are not tested on animals (only our natural, non-irritating Dog Range which is tested on local dogs with sensitive skin). We are firmly against cruelty to animals.
Aside from the natural product range products, how else does Bondi Wash support the environment?
We donate to the global charity WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature). We choose WWF due to the wonderful work the organisation does in protecting animals and their habitats. In Australia for example, deforestation has caused the loss of more species than in any other country in the world. WWF work actively to protect and restore this natural habitat to ensure this devastation does not continue. If you'd also like to support this worthy and well-run organisation, please click here.
Do Bondi Wash products contain sulphates or parabens?
No, Bondi Wash products are all completely sulphate and paraben free. At Bondi Wash, our goal is to create the most natural products possible using only high-quality ingredients. For example, the non-paraben preservative system used in our Bench Spray, Floor Wash and Mist Spray is Sodium Benzoate/Potassium Sorbate which is food grade and constitutes less than 1% of the product. More information can be found on our Ingredients page and in our series on ‘Ingredients’ in our journal.
Where are Bondi Wash products manufactured?
We work with high quality Australian manufacturers for all our products. All products are made by manufacturers with extensive experience using professional quality control to ensure products are shelf-stable and formulations are uncontaminated and consistent.
Is Bondi Wash an Australian company?
Yes, Bondi Wash is fully Australian-owned. Our ABN is 37 163 733 337.
Are Bondi Wash products organic?
Organic is fast becoming a trendy word that many companies are using regardless of what’s inside their products. At Bondi Wash, where we can source organic ingredients we do. But many of the ingredients we source for our products are not available with organic certification. It is for this reason that we don’t label our products ‘organic’ – we felt it was misleading to the consumer.
Does Bondi Wash use palm oil?
Currently only our Hand and Body Washes and Lotions contain a very small percentage of sustainably sourced palm oil. We try to avoid palm oil in our formulations.
Are Bondi Wash products vegan?
All Bondi Wash products are vegan except the Purifying Night Balm and the Lip Balm which contain beeswax.
Are Bondi Wash products gluten free?
Yes, Bondi Wash products are safe for coeliacs.
