Frequently Asked Questions
Bijou Von started off with Bijou Von’s hand sanitisers, but continue to develop our product ranges. Our approach is simple, handmade, hand poured products,
CHARITY & COMMUNITY – We hold at the core of our focus, giving back to the community, which is why we will continue to support Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice.
ENVIRONMENT – In addition to this, our focus on the environment is a priority. Our packaging is cardboard and paper, which can be recycled. Our bags are made from paper, our carrier bags are made from compostable material and even our tea lights are compostable. Our candles are made from sustainable sources, such as Rapeseed and Coconut. Our Soy blend is also sourced from renewable sources.
VEGAN FRIENDLY & NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS – Our products are vegan friendly, never tested on animals and we always ensure that whatever we source is aligned to our values around supplying vegan friendly and animal friendly products.
HAND SANITISERS – Our hand sanitisers conform to the WHO (World Health Organisation) recommended formulation. Bijou Von hand sanitiser contains 80% alcohol (if a hand sanitiser doesn’t contain at least 75% alcohol as an active ingredient, it does not conform to WHO recommendation). Why not 100%? Studies have shown higher alcohol concentrations to be less effective against bacteria and viruses.
- Includes natural food grade vegetable glycerine which has anti-microbial properties.
- Kills 99.99% of germs
- No need for the sticky gels, this is a no rinse formula.
- Fast drying spray
- Contain Aloe Vera
- With a range of 100% Pure Essential Oils and Fragrance oils to choose from, we give you choice.
Each of our atomisers come filled with a divine fragrance of your choice, from our wide selection available to you. Each bottle is refillable and helps us to reduce single use items.
CRYSTALS – We have a very extensive range of crystals that are being added to our site ongoing. We have reviewed a number of countries & suppliers for supply of crystals and it is important we understand how our crystals are sourced. There are a number of companies who will claim crystals are supplied sustainably and this is not always the case. We provide some very insightful guidance under our section around the crystals that will detail how crystals are sourced.
