Our History

Back in the 1980s, our founder Michael Barwell’s job was to clean and maintain commercial ships. It was tough work using industrial cleaning products for which heavy-duty safety equipment, including a respirator, had to be worn.

Michael was shocked to discover that many of the ingredients in the products he used at work could also be found in everyday household cleaners. It prompted him to look for naturally-derived alternatives that would clean safely and effectively without harming people or the environment, and in 1989, Bio-D was born.

Michael has since retired from the business with Lloyd Atkin taking over after working with the business since 1996. With Lloyd at the helm, the Bio-D team work every day to continue Michael’s legacy, creating cleaning products that are Effective, Ethical and Don’t cost the Earth.
