Our Philosophy

Delightful, timeless and proven natural formulas is The Botanist’s approach.

We make our products using a traditional method of turning natural oils and fats into soap, a centuries-old process that makes castile soap - a non-toxic, biodegradable soap traditionally made from olive oil's reaction with water. It lathers and cleans just like “normal” soap or cleaning spray, but without all the toxic chemicals.

Our process brings out olive oil and coconut oil's natural antibacterial attributes and mixes it with the powerful properties of tea tree, eucalyptus, thyme, lavender, lemon and orange essential oils, creating beautiful aromas that will delight you while taking care your home cleaning needs.

No harmful chemicals, no toxins, no artificial fragrances, no shenanigans. This is nature at work and at its best in beautifully styled packaging for everyday use.

We respect not only our health, but the health of our planet. From what's inside the bottles to what's on the outside, we try to make what's in your hands as eco-friendly as possible. 

Packaging / Our products come in refillable glass bottles and we use minimal plastics in our packaging. By refilling the glass bottles and reusing the spray nozzle and pump, you avoid unnecessary waste of empty plastic cleaning bottles. 

Ingredients / Our natural castile soap formula is made with biodegradable ingredients which come from the earth, and which are kind to the environment when they wash down the drain. 

Process / During the process of production, the key process of saponification - a process that involves the conversion of oil into soap via heat in the presence of an alkali - is a simple one-step reaction with almost no waste generated.

Sourcing / We source 95% of our raw materials from within the MENA region, Sri Lanka and India. We are continuously looking at ways we can optimise our processes and reduce our carbon footprint - this is an ongoing journey. 


We believe that the solutions to many of our needs are often rooted in nature. The Botanist products are free of synthetic chemicals, toxins or artificial fragrances and made with ingredients drawn from nature. 

The Botanist range allows you to simplify your life by replacing a variety of toxic cleaning products with just a few, saving time, energy and money. They can tackle every cleaning job you have with absolute safety.


None of our products are ever tested on animals.
