Are you green? Ecostore USA product Giveaway!

In just the last couple years, I've become more conscientious and choosy about the products I use in my home....everything from laundry detergent to baby shampoo. After reading several articles about the potentially harmful ingredients in some of the things we use in our home, it made me want to make some important changes.

So when I was offered the opportunity to try the eco-friendly, plant based products made by ecostore USA, of course, I was happy to give their products a try. The company began over 15 years ago by a couple in New Zealand who based the business out of their home....word spread about how wonderful their products were and it developed into what it is today.

Ecostore USA describes their products:

Our eco-friendly, plant-based household cleaning products are as effective as the leading supermarket brands, and our body and baby care ranges are gentle on your skin and are simply beautiful to use. Our pet care products let you spoil your pets with our nourishing, rich blends of ingredients and show them how much you care by reducing their exposure to unhealthy chemicals.

All of our products are made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce our carbon footprint.

I received the Baby Body Wash, Baby Shampoo, and Baby Moisturizer to try. Garrett, especially, has very sensitive skin so I've had to use hypoallergenic products on him since he was a young baby so these 3 products were perfect for us. The body wash and shampoo were gentle on all my children and provided the same cleansing ability of other soaps I've used on them in the past.

Also, the products are mild enough to be used on a daily basis...and let's face it, sometimes my kids need baths every day but I hesitated to only because their skin would become so dried out. But Ecostore USA's baby products weren't drying at all...in fact, the kids' skin felt more smooth and softer and (here's a huge PLUS) the products seemed to have a very calming effect on the kids. The moisturizer has a fresh, clean smell to it and it kept their skin soft, well into the next day (until their next bath!)

In addition to the baby products, Ecostore USA has a number of other things, including bath and body wash for adults, a variety of household cleaning products (laundry and dishwash detergent, a pure oxygen whitener as an alternative to bleach, etc) and even a line of products for our beloved family pets.

Ecostore USA has generously offered to give away a $25 gift certificate to be used towards the purchase any of their products!!!

Natural cleaning products are nice, especially with cleaning the floors. I try to use something safe on the floors knowing that my kids pick things up off the floor and stick them in their mouths.

Heather Kephart said...

Sounds like wonderful products, Helene! I'll bet you were thrilled to review them!

By the way, I kept thinking your blog had a butterfly theme! I swear I didn't copycat you on the polka dots! I really was wanting the flowers up on top. And I liked the funky green and cartoonish font. I'm babbling.

Ok, so I was going to say Vanilla shampoo and conditioner, but everyone said that. Then I was going to say the coconut soap, but again too many people said that. So, I am going with the front loader laundry detergent. :)
