Simplicity: The most important Earthwise ingredient
At Earthwise we like to keep things simple - you can be sure of that. There are lots of claims made for and against a whole list of ingredients in household products. One company's 'nasties' can be another one's 'nice'. Preferred raw materials can differ from country to country. For some claims the evidence is clear cut, for others, less so. It can be very confusing for shoppers who are trying to make the best choices for their family and the planet.

We asked the Earthwise Consulting Chemist to lift the lid on the pros and cons of bleach vs oxy whitener.
