You might be surprised to learn that very little of what’s on those fresh vegetables and fruits actually comes off when you simply rinse or rub them under running water.

Even if you buy organic or sustainably grown produce fruits from your local farmers’ market – there are potentially hidden dangers lurking on their surfaces as well.

Grow your own?

Fertilisers, animals and unhealthy soil can contaminate even home grown produce. And with today’s large-scale, global food system, our vegetables and fruits are at greater risk than ever for harbouring dangerous contaminants and pesticide residues.

Washing fruit and vegetables with water is not enough to protect your family.

You simply can’t remove all the contaminants with just water. To make matters worse, most produce is waxed after harvest to withstand the long journey to market and to protect against the many hands that touch it. Wax seals in the pesticide residues and other debris, which makes them even more difficult to remove with just water.

So to reach the contaminants buried beneath the surface of your vegetables and fruits, you need a cleanser that also removes the wax.

Even if your fruits and vegetables are “organic” or even home-grown, in order for them to grow they need fertilisers.

The problem is fertilisers have been found to be loaded with chemicals and other heavy metals, and can remain on the skin of the produce.

Almost ALL fertilisers contain a blend of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium (N,P,K), PLUS a range of “other” ingredients.
