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 – and our Soap Bars are completely palm oil free. Our washes and lotions contain a small amount of palm-oil derived ingredients, using sustainable palm-oil.
