Remove nasties from fresh produce, naturally!
Australian all-natural cleaning brand, Koala Eco, is proud to expand its collection with the addition of an All Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash (RRP $9.90/500ml). The wash ensures both organic and non-organic fresh produce is consumed the way nature intended, by removing lingering wax, pesticides and dirt, among other stubborn impurities.
The All Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash is the latest addition to Koala Eco's range of Australian-made, all natural cleaning products and uses 100 per cent pure Mandarin essential oil in a totally biodegradable, ecofriendly and food-friendly formula, specifically designed for washing fresh produce.
This natural disinfectant is powerful enough to shift residual pesticides, oils, waxes and agricultural chemicals from fruit and vegetables, without leaving an unpleasant aftertaste or odour.
Koala Eco founder, Jess Bragdon, said fruit and vegetable washes are increasing in popularity as consumers become concerned with how their food may be contributing to their bodies' toxic load.
"We put so much effort into ensuring we inject plenty of fruit and vegetables into our diets, and while we all wash our fresh produce, the reality is that a simple rinse with water may not suffice. Even organically grown produce is vulnerable to the effects of drift spray, human handling, animal soiling, mould spores, dust and dirt," Bragdon said.
"Our All Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash uses the power of mandarin oil to effectively clean produce, leaving no taste or odour, so you can enjoy it as nature intended."
In addition to mandarin oil, the Koala Eco All Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash contains nothing but Australian filtered water, sea salt, plant-based biodegradable surfactant soap, and plant-based food-grade biodegradable solubiliser. The wash is also free of ammonia, SLS/SLES, synthetic fragrances, dyes, phosphates, dioxane, chlorine, bleach, alcohol, petroleum-based cleansers and caustic ingredients, making it super-safe to use and good enough to eat!
The All Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash is the latest product to join the Koala Eco's growing range of perfectly presented, affordable and toxic chemical-free cleaning products. Using high concentrations of Australian essential oils combined with only plant derived ingredients, Koala Eco products provide natural cleaning power without the artificial fragrances, colours and harsh chemicals common to home cleaning products. The result is a home that is reassuringly clean and safe, with the authentic native aroma of Australia's heritage landscape.
