Sapadilla Grapefruit + Bergamot Dish Soap | All Natural

Dish soap, we all use it… but do we really pay any attention to anything but the scent when we buy it? It’s the kind of household staple that seems to get forgotten during the shift to a more green or eco-friendly lifestyle.

Sapadilla Grapefruit + Bergamot Dish Soap $6.99 CAD


A simple, minimalist design which features text graphics makes a gorgeous addition to the kitchen sink. The Sapadilla Grapefruit + Bergamot Dish Soap has a blend of citrus, lemon, sweet orange and bergamot to create a fresh blend that’s much more appealing than the typical faux-lemon scent of other dish soaps.

It’s formulated without SLS and SLES which are common within shampoos and soaps for their ability to fight grease – but not without sucking the moisture right out of anything they touch. Instead, the Sapadilla Grapefruit + Bergamot Dish Soap has vegetable glycerin which creates a sudsy lather without drying out those poor hands!

How does it compare to traditional dish soaps?

This soap is fantastic. I ended up purchasing this after looking around on for some good eco-friendly alternatives to cleaning products. There’s no “natural” store where I live now, so it’s hard to find more green products.

It isn’t a cheap soap. In fact you can buy 950 ml of Sunlight for $3.99, while the Sapadilla Grapefruit + Bergamot Dish Soap is only 475 ml for $6.99… So you’re getting half the amount for double the cost. 

Now, I’m not sure why something that is more natural costs more. Whether paying double the cost for half the amount of soap is worth it really depends on your stance. Personally, I find that this soap works just as well as Sunlight and smells so much better.

I am happy to support a Canadian company and know that I’m not flushing a boatload of chemicals down the drain everyday when I do my dishes. But I will only purchase this when it is on sale. had this on sale for $5.94 and I purchased another bottle, somehow I can justify that, but I cannot justify the regular $6.99 price.

I do wish that the bottle was bigger, or that Sapadilla sold refill bottles for these – which would make it more cost-effective for the consumer (and perhaps minimize waste.) However, the product is great. It works really well at cutting through greasy dishes and definitely does it’s job.

As I type this, I have another bottle of the Sapadilla Grapefruit + Bergamot dish soap on it’s way in the mail. Purchasing through while it’s on sale (and using Ebates) is the way to go!
