Skosh

Skosh offers a sustainable alternative to mass-market household surface cleaners.  The reusable cleaning spray bottles and water-soluble tablets produce an effective, non-toxic cleaning solution for kitchens, bathrooms and other surfaces around the home.  

500ml Spray Bottle

Made from recycled and recyclable plastic, the robust bottles are designed to be used time and time again. When empty, the bottles are a neutral, semi-opaque grey colour but once a tablet is dropped in and water added, the liquid colour shows through the bottle to indicate which version is being used. The spray top is a mix of recycled and virgin PP #5 plastic and all outer parts can be recycled at end of life.

The swing tags on the bottle are made from grass paper, which is fully biodegradable and minimizes the consumption of important primary resources such as wood.

The bottles are currently made in China by a company that is certified to ISO 9001:2015 standards, but during 2021 production will be moved to Europe.

Cleaning Tablets

Made from environmentally friendly ingredients, the formulas used deliberately omit chemical anti-bacterials as research indicates that these may contribute to bacteria becoming resistant to such disinfectants. Product performance is just as important as the eco-credentials and the goal is to produce effective cleaning while simultaneously protecting the environment. 

The main active ingredients are food-grade citric acid, sodium (hydrogen) carbonate, anionic surfactants, pH-regulators, essential oils, and stainless colouring. 100% vegan and biodegradable.  For full details, please refer to the Skosh Product Data Sheet.

Each tablet (Multi-Purpose, Bathroom, and Glass & Mirror) has its own unique formula with optimised pH levels and ingredients for an efficient cleaning performance. 

The tablets comply with EU Detergents Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 // CLP (Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008). All ingredients are listed on the packaging in English. For other languages, we recommend that retailers provide a translation of the label in store. 

The tablets are made in Sweden and packed in recyclable paper sachets.  

The Skosh Story

Skosh was founded in Sweden by Simon, Max and Tom. They met at university and while there took part in an innovation competition to find a way to reduce plastic waste and consumption around the world.  

They realised that household cleaning products are serious offenders. Not only do the disposable bottles contribute to unnecessary plastic consumption, but the products also take up space and are heavy when shipped. That seems unnecessary when the main ingredient of cleaning products – water - is something we all already have at home in our taps.

Simon, Max and Tom won the competition and, with the help of Lund University and leading chemists in the cleaning products industry, developed the idea into a finished product. And Skosh was born!  

The name Skosh originates from Japanese, meaning "a little bit", which supports the company vision of making the world more sustainable one Skosh at the time.
