“Koala Eco’s Natural Hand Wash combines nature’s most aromatic antiseptics in one powerful, anti-bacterial formula. It has a lovely strong lemon eucalyptus scent and definitely makes you feel like your hands are extremely clean and disinfected, without drying out the skin.
This hand wash is perfect for the bathroom or when you have sick children at home and desperately want to sanitise your hands. I found myself using it all the time and was very thankful for its antibacterial properties during winter when colds were an unfortunate regular occurrence with young children in our house. The smell does stay on your hands after use, which is delightful for most situations, but I found it meant that it wasn’t an ideal soap for washing your hands before eating or mid cooking.
This is a fantastic non-toxic hand wash for when you want something to really do a proper powerful job.”
“What a great handwash. I’ve been needing a low tox / natural no drying hand wash for some time and this has been a pleasure to use. I love the Australian theme to the whole Koala Eco brand especially the beautiful graphics and essential oils. I found that the natural hand wash was not too thick, lathers well and has a lovely, Australian scent that isn’t too strong. A great wash that I’m proud to display in my home.

“Oh, how I love this range and its use of Australiana ingredients. I’m a bit of a koala myself – I’m already a huge fan of eucalyptus and its antibacterial properties, and I’ve been waiting for a decent eucalypt handwash to hit the market for a while! I love that they’ve combined it with the goodness of rosemary and I absolutely adore that the packaging featuring a beautiful illustration of eucalyptus leaves and gumnuts. My only critique is that it’s a little runny and that more is released from each individual pump than is necessary for a handwash.
I love that you can sign up for regular delivery of a 1 litre refill.”
“At home, washing hands is a must. This all-natural hand wash removes dirt while cleaning the hands with 100% Botanic ingredients that won’t dry your skin. I have used this product for several months now & I just love the packaging & how well it works for regular cleansing. The aroma of Natural Essential Oils is fresh & uplifting, I don’t think you will find a more affordable hand wash that you can trust, it is simply the best everyday hand wash for the home or office. The packaging is so unique & I love that the brand is inspired by Australia’s unique wildlife & flora. You can feel that it is natural, your hands are perfectly cleaned and they smell fresh without drying the skin. I actually look forward to washing my hands with this liquid soap because I know that it won’t dry my aging hands! Koala Eco also offers generous refills so you can make a sustainable choice & keep reusing your hand wash pump.”
“I love the beautiful smell of this handwash and it doesn’t leave your hands dry and rough which many other brands do with constant hand washing!”
