Cleaning Products

My First Review!! Ecostore!!

8:53 PM

While visiting Ecostore's website recently, I was impressed by what I saw. Their motto is "No nasty chemicals" and that is exactly what they have to offer...only green products that are family, earth and environmentally friendly. Here is how it all began...

"ecostore NZ was founded more than 15 years ago by Melanie and Malcolm Rands from their home in an eco village in New Zealand. All of the families that lived in the farm based eco village shared a commitment to organic growing and healthy living, making this an ideal environment in which a young, environmentally conscious business could thrive. Each household in the village was responsible for their own waste water, which quickly highlighted the problems caused by using regular supermarket cleaning products that relied heavily on cheap, petroleum-based, synthetic ingredients. Faced with the challenge of protecting the pristine rural waterways of the eco village, Malcolm Rands began to research and seek expert help from scientists to develop household cleaning products using plant-based ingredients that would biodegrade safely and quickly. Achieving his goal, he eliminated the need to use toxic chemicals, leaving the eco villages water pure. His goal was more than accomplished as the product line of this home-based business began to grow, and an exciting future began to unfold. The original customer base of ecostore NZ was comprised of mostly ‘Greenies’ and organic gardeners. However, it was not long before testimonials from other parents (many of whom were unaware of the benefits of eco-friendly products) began to pour in with wonderful news of their children's allergies and eczema clearing up. Many noted that any respiratory issues were healing, and many lingering chronic conditions were disappearing. By simply changing to the genuinely clean and green ecostore products, people were experiencing surprising and unexpected improvements in their health. As the notion of using products with “No Nasty Chemicals™” gained popular appeal, ecostore quickly outgrew its location in the Rand’s basement and the business moved to a storefront in Auckland, New Zealand."

One of the things that really stood out to me was the fact that Ecostore's products help with Eczema...something that my toddler has struggled with since infancy. We have very hard water here where we live also, so anything that I can do to help soften and protect her skin is important to me.
********
Ecostore offers a very wide variety of products. Everything from pet care to household care to hair, body and baby care. They offered to send me two of their products of my choice for review. I was thrilled!


I chose to review their Naturally Active Pure Oxygen Whitener and the Lemongrass bar soap. When these products came in, they arrived on laundry day! Imagine that!!!


I immediately mixed two tablespoons of the Pure Oxygen Whitener with water and added it to my load of towels that was in the washer. What is nice about this Whitener is that you can also use it with colors...which is what I did. There was no nasty smell to the powdered whitener and it mixed in very nicely. It didn't even smell like bleach!


I liked working with it very much. I will spare you the photo of my clean laundry...trust me~it was clean! :) This Whitener boasts of several things:
NO toxic petrochemicals, NO phosphates, NO nitrates, NO chlorine, NO EDTA, NO optical whiteners, NO dyes or synthetic perfumes.
This is what I like to hear. It is also used to soak clothes for long periods of time if you have some stubborn stains. (Hello moms!!! Don't our children present us with some of those well-known 'stubborn' stains? :)
**********
The Lemongrass soap is WONDERFUL! I was impressed by the fresh scent that greeted me upon opening the box. It was a delightful, refreshing scent...yet not overwhelming.
The bar is a nice size too, so it works well in just about any location in my house...bathroom, kitchen, etc. It contains lemongrass oil, which soothes and softens skin. It also contains coconut and palm oil! How can you resist such a natural soap? I am so used to soap that dries my skin...this is truly a wonderful soap.
**********
So, there you have it! In my opinion, Ecostore is worth visiting and shopping at! Their prices are very reasonable so you don't have to break the bank to live healthy...I like that. As it so happens, they are currently having a great fall promotion~buy any TWO household products, and receive the Pure Oxygen Whitener for FREE! Orders over $25 get free shipping as well. So, stop by their site today and see what they can do for you!
