To tackle the 644 million tonnes of fruit and vegetables that are thrown away each year, ‘Veggi Wash Fruit Too’ has created range of liquid washes, sprays and wipes that help produce stay fresh for longer.
Made with 100% safe and natural ingredients derived from coconut oil, grape and corn extracts to breakdown agricultural contaminants, it claims its products are five times more effective than washing produce with water alone.
Pesticides and waxes used on fruit and vegetables are designed to be waterproof so washing them solely with water will not remove them.
Each product in the range contains three active cleansers that reduce surface tension of the fruit or vegetable’s skin, allowing contaminants to be rinsed away; capture and hold contaminants in solution to prevent re-contamination during washing, and break down contaminants and aid final rinsing.
Veggi Wash Fruit Too is also based on a combination of natural surfactants that are capable of rapidly destroying the lipid coating of Covid-19.
