Planet Detox has developed a range of ethical cleaning products which have totally annihilated the need for any plastic packaging.
Their products are designed to provide excellent, powerful and effective cleaning without using any ingredients which will hurt you or our planet. They use minerals and essential oils in their products, which safely remove dirt, grime and odours and their ingredients are naturally antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal.
Planet Detox is committed to finding solutions to our massively damaging plastics and chemical overuse. They keep their products as simple and safe as possible and everything is handmade in Totnes, Devon, UK.
Lucy de Rosa, Founder of Planet Detox developed the Planet Detox range out of exasperation and a sense of outrage. Exasperated by the unnecessary chemical overload in cleaning products and outraged by the marketing methods employed by unscrupulous companies to get us to purchase these damaging products.
She began to look into the chemistry of cleaning and researched the tried and tested methods and ingredients from the past. Those which we used before we were brainwashed into buying quick-fix, corrosive, lung damaging, polluting and plastic coated, aggressively marketed products. She wanted the items in her cleaning cupboard to be as innocuous as the ingredients of her baking cupboard and yet still maintain a hygienic home for herself and her young family.
The first product Lucy developed was the cleaning bar. She was already buying shampoo bars, as an alternative to bottled cosmetics and she figured it would be just as simple to put household cleaning products into bar form, to get rid of the bottle. With that problem solved, she set about experimenting with the ingredients and chose only natural minerals and oils and only those which are biodegradable and totally harmless to the waterways, soils, flora and fauna, human being and Planet as a whole. The essential oils in Planet Detox products are antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal and the whole sensory effect whilst using the products make cleaning a therapeutic experience and one you will from now on, start to look forward to!
Everything Planet Detox produce is packaged only in reusable, recyclable and compostable paper. With Planet Detox, the Planet comes first.
