- Cleaner Veg: US luxury and ethical haircare brand Oway has launched a new product called Plantae – a liquid purifier for fruit and veg made from mint, organic pink grapefruit and ethically produced guava. When applied to edible produce, the biodynamic formula removes chemical residue and dirt, without the need for water. It's being touted as the perfect product for camping and on-the-go cleaning.
