ORDERING – STOCKISTS ONLY
We are currently working on a system where stockists will be able to put orders online
WE TAKE OUR RETURNABLE DRUMS BACK – How does it work?
The circular economy defines the way we operate at SESI. We reuse our 5L and 20L drums. We take our drums back every time we deliver your orders. We clean the drums and put them back in circulation 🚰🔃
Queue. There’s a currently a queue for the refill dispensers but we make sure work is swiftly on the way to build and install them. SESI dispensers are on loan with the condition that only our products are refilled with them – it’s all in a signed agreement. The waiting list for these has now reached two months
Do I have to use SESI Dispensers? No, it is not required to borrow SESI dispensers. Some stockists use stainless steel vats or other dispensing devices to refill our products.
New-coming stockists are refilling sesi detergents using taps, which we supply at a deposit. Once the refill dispensers are made and delivered to you, we give you a refund for the taps and take them back

IN OUR PRODUCTS
SESI detergents are made within 50 miles of Oxford by a long, family run business. Our formulas are mild, harmless, vegan and cruelty free
We go to great lengths to ensure our products whilst eco-friendly, are also affordable and easy to refill
We use fragrances which can be sourced locally. We opt out from exotic essential oils which would need to be imported from far out, thus reducing carbon footprint where possible
Do we use them? SESI does not use Chlorine bleaches, Optical brightener, Gluten, Alcohol and our products absolutely do not make use of animal testing. Other products we do not use are: SLS, ALS, ALES and Phosphates
Do our products contain enzymes? There are vegan enzymes in our Biological Laundry Liquid; none of the other SESI products contain enzymes.
Can I use your products for Septic Tanks? SESI Refill do not contain bleach, phosphates or nonylphenol ethoxylate, which are harmful to septic tanks and the environment.
Reading beyond the headlines? #PalmOil
SESI products use a coconut blend with tiny percentages of RSPO (sustainably sourced) Palm Oil (see table provided here). See table
We are not complacent about RSPO certified palm oil, neither do we think Coconut Oil is ‘the solution’ like the expensive eco market would have us believe. Let’s ask these questions on Coconut Oil. For now, these formulas are the most affordable to us and therefore to you who genuinely take action to reduce your plastic footprint, helping cut the staggering 12.7 million tonnes of plastic ending in our Oceans every year. SESI Refill continues to campaign against destructive Palm and any other mono-culture endangering local and global ecosystems. In future, we wish to put energy into sourcing and using locally grown crops and we do a good deal of research on them. We believe that it should be possible for oils – whether used for fragrance, moisturisers or surfactants – to be extracted from affordable local crops, so long as these DO NOT use neonicotinoids, chemicals contributing to the extinction of bees, which in turn damage pollination and puts our land, crops and our capacity to produce food, in great danger.
Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? Difference between Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Sodium Laureth Sulphate:
- Is a benign and gentle surfactant not to be confused with Sodium Laurel Sulfate.
- Is present in small quantities in SESI: Hand Soap, Washing-Up (ginger scent), Bio Laundry Liquid and the Non Bio Laundry Liquid
- Is derived from the blend of coconut oil
