All products are 100% natural and organic, with gender-neutral scents, home compostable and biodegradable packaging and are ethically manufactured without animal testing. Biode's range includes multi-purpose products that are synthetic and toxin-free.
Biode packaging is made from 100% post-consumer waste papers, printed with vegetable-based inks and is home-compostable, designed to "Return to Earth" and biodegrade in 12-20 weeks. The products the brand creates are daily necessities that are meant to be absorbed by nature before repurchasing. The brand is committed to reducing landfill by supplying compostable packaging and fighting the war on waste and landfill through their Return to Earth brand ethos. For example, one bar of shampoo is equivalent to three bottles of shampoo, saving both the environment and consumers' wallets.
Biode uses paper or cornstarch for packaging, which is often made from post-consumer waste/recycled materials. The brand plants a tree for every order to return the favour to the environment and replace the resources used many times over. The brand has partnered with, a non-profit environmental charity dedicated to planting forests around the world. In 2022, the charity planted over 52 million trees and Biode wants to help them do more. The brand aims to reduce the impact of their brand's vision and life cycle on the planet by choosing paper over plastic and encourages other global companies to follow suit.

Product reviews from our experts…


This product was really convenient to apply with the push up tube. It applied easily and almost melted onto the skin. I love the simplicity of the intentionally formulated ingredients and the use of organic ingredients where possible. The scent of sweet citronella and lavender is so pleasant! As a home gardener I very much appreciated that the tube is 100% biodegradable and can be placed into my garden compost upon empty to break down into soil! We live rurally and spend a lot of time outside. I love that I have a non-toxic option for insect protection that the whole family can use safely. I would absolutely buy this product again!

I have purchased from this brand many times in the past and always return based on their business ethos and integrity to create a more sustainable future for us all. I also love that Biode is committed to reducing landfill with their Return to Earth brand ethos. They offer many great product alternatives to support consumers to lower their waste!

The way that this Biode balm presents and applies is excellent, the cardboard packaging is a rare innovation in this space – Great to see! Using 100% compostable natural products also holds great appeal for me – a permaculture lover, and long term composter. The clean ingredients and the natural aromas are also a big plus!

This stick concept balm feels nice and is a great option for kids. We are also impressed that the packaging is made of 100% post consumer waste and that the brand partners with one tree planted!
