Lucy de Rosa, founder of Planet Detox:

"I 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. I banned them from my household.

Then I 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.

I wanted the items in my cleaning cupboard to be as innocuous as the ingredients of my baking cupboard and yet still maintain a hygienic home for myself and young family.

The first product I developed was the cleaning bar. I was already buying shampoo bars, as an alternative to bottled cosmetics and I 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, I 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 our 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!

Since the development of the bars, I have resolved other product packaging problems, having developed powdered cleaners for floors, dishes, toilets and even teeth. Everything we produce is packaged only in reusable, recyclable and compostable paper.

With Planet Detox, the Planet comes first."
