BioD’s story began in the 1980s, when Michael Barwell (the founder of the company) was working as a cleaner on commercial ships. He discovered that many of the everyday ingredients in the industrial cleaning products he was using were also in household cleaning products, and while he was supplied with heavy-duty safety equipment to protect his skin and lungs, the same couldn’t be said for the unsuspecting people innocently keeping their homes clean. And the less that was said about the effect on the environment from these chemicals, the better.
It was then, that Michael started his search for ingredients that would clean effectively and wouldn’t harm the environment or the people using them. He launched BioD in 1989, and the company has since gone from strength to strength, proving that eco-cleaning can be done kindly.
All BioD products are made in the UK, and every single box, spray, hand-pump, and bottle contains 100% of BioD’s own product, made in Hull, England. Every product is completely traceable, so there are no hidden nasties or chemical surprises.
All BioD’s products are natural and plant-based. They’re a member of the Vegan Society, and follow their strict vegan guidelines at every turn. They’re firmly against animal testing, and are also a member of Cruelty Free International. A true friend to wildlife and the natural world, BioD are registered with ISO14001, which means they’ve been officially recognised for their dedication to putting environmental management at the heart of what they do. Less than 1% of companies in the UK meet this standard – proving what a huge achievement this is!
