Frequently Asked Questions


Where are the cleaning products made?

SESI detergents are made 50 miles near to Oxford by a long going, family run business with sound work ethics. The formulas are mild, harmless, vegan and cruelty free. They go to great lengths to ensure our products whilst eco-friendly, are also affordable and easy to refill.  

Fragrances are sourced locally. They opted out from exotic essential oils which would need to be imported from far out.. so they make sure to reduce the carbon footprint where possible.

Frequently Asked Questions #1: Are the detergents environmentally friendly?

The detergents have do NOT contain any of the following:

Parabens, Chlorine Bleaches, Optical Brightener, Thiazolinones, Sulphites, Methylisothiazolinone (CMIT), Gluten, Alcohol, SLS, ALS, ALES and Phosphates

Can I refill in any container I want?

Taking into account Health and Safety, we don’t encourage people to refill our detergents in milk or drink bottles. If you insist in refilling detergents in milk bottles or drink bottles, it's at your own risk as there is a risk that children and people who don’t read English could reach out for the bottle thinking it is a drink. 

We recommend:

- squeezy bottles (shampoo, washing up liquid...)

- spray bottles (Mr Muscle...)

- pump bottles for handsoap 

- shampoo and shower bottles, 

- laundry and conditioner bottles 

...or any other that you find convenient!  

What about labelling?

FAQs: What about labels?
Do not strip off the label of your used bottle, where the quantity of your container is because this is what we use "at the till"! 

We will place a sticker on the bottle so you know what's in it and how to use it.

Your reusable bottles must be clean and dried when refilling.  

What happens to the large tubs from the Refill Station?

Sesi reuses the 5L and 20L containers. They take them back every time orders are delivered at Maya’s Refillables. The containers are cleaned and put back in circulation. 

The circular economy defines the way SESI operates with a proactive approach to reuse and reduce resources consumption. This makes the operation truly zero waste from the manufacture to the consumer!
