Launched in 2013 by Bondi-based mother of 3, Belinda Everingham, BONDI WASH was inspired by the novel 'Perfume' by Patrick Susskind, which is all about the evocative power of scent.  Reading the novel while on holidays in Far North Queensland, and surrounded by unusual native flora, Belinda wondered whether Australia could create beautiful fragrances and products from native botanicals, just like the French have been doing for centuries.

The range was developed over 18 months, drawing on expertise from chemists and using the latest technology in natural ingredients. BONDI WASH combines the amazing power and fragrance of unique Australian botanicals with a luxurious mix of other essential oils and natural ingredients to bring a new range of truly distinctive products that are good for the planet and your home.

All BONDI WASH products are plant-based. Nothing nasty. Products are non-toxic, bio-degradable and contain ingredients sourced from the best Australian suppliers.

BONDI WASH products use Australian bush oils that have interesting fragrances – not your standard eucalyptus or tea tree - which combine beautifully with other oils to create uplifting scents that make washing a delight. These bush oils have amazing properties and have all been independently tested for their anti-bacterial properties.

BONDI WASH products also contain ACTIVE Australian ingredients, like Wattleseed oil, Lilly Pilly extract and Banksia seed oil.  These active ingredients are all 100% plant-derived and bring unique and powerful properties to that have only recently been researched and discovered.

The Dog collection is scented with their signature Paperbark and Lemongrass fragrance. 

Paperbark is a gentle but powerful oil, which will remove germs and repel insects, while calming and relaxing.  Combined with other oils including lemongrass, rosemary and lavender, this formulation is specially designed to suit a dog’s sensitive skin.

Sizing Information

COLLAR SIZE GUIDE

It’s best to measure your dog to make sure you get the collar that fits them perfectly. Take a flexible tape measure and measure right around the base of the neck, allowing enough room to slide 2 fingers in for comfort.   Our collars are measured from the end of the strap by the buckle to the 1st and last holes. For the smallest fitting size, please see the distance marked A to B on the diagram. The largest fitting size is as shown on the diagram as the distance from A to Z.  Our collars have been specifically designed to reduce the amount of the strap loose at the tip when fastened for the smallest size. Due to this our sizes to do not overlap in dimensions. If your dogs measurement spans across 2 sizes we recommend to order a size up. Please note that as many of our collars are handmade sizing may vary slightly.
