Bio-D is the UK’s leading independent producer of eco-friendly cleaning products, sold online at, selected Oxfam stores and independent retailers. All Bio-D products are made in Hull, UK, from sustainable, naturally-derived raw materials and are free from synthetic chemicals, preservatives, enzymes and synthetic perfumes. Bio-D formed in 1989, after founder Michael Barwell sought alternatives to standard home cleaning products – which often contained the same harmful chemicals as industrial cleaners that require the use of safety equipment. Bio-D is approved by Cruelty Free International and the Vegan Society, and is accedited by Allergy UK for its fragrance free products.
