Have you seen the brand "Eco Store?" It is an eco friendly company based in New Zealand that makes plant-based household cleaning and body products that are as effective as the leading supermarket brands. I say, they are a clean and green company worthy of your business!
I received a few products for "clinical trials" in my home, under real conditions, with real a real family. The three items I have the pleasure to show you are Laundry Liquid, Baby Moisturizer, and Goat's Milk Baby Soap.
When the box arrived, it was just in time. No kidding...My husband's laundry was sitting in front of the washing machine just waiting to be scoured, scrubbed and freshened. And my husbands jeans are disgusting. Since we own a trucking company, he can not avoid getting indescribable petroleum filth on his pants from time to time.
So with no further adieu, I put a load of the jeans in the laundry tub, put the prescribed amount of fluid in the washer and pressed START! My first reaction was, "Wow, nice smell," since a fresh clean eucalyptus scent was filling the laundry room immediately. After removing the load of jeans I observed they were clean and the scent of the laundry liquid was able to mostly cover the smell of the oils. I have a nose like a blood hound and could still faintly detect the offensive odors that have stained his pants. I.E. that means this product works, really works!
For my normal family laundry loads it left a clean fresh smell, no more, no less! I am not partial to the scents of most detergents and purchase unscented washing liquid; but, the scent of the Laundry Liquid is lovely and does not make my nose cringe. After drying, the family clothes did not emit any scent, so I would almost call this product scent free. OH! and yes every thing was clean, clean, and more clean!
On to the baby soap and baby moisturizer...
Both of my kids have mild eczema so I was really interested to see how their skin reacted to the baby soap. Occasionally, they get reactions if using commercially popular soaps. SO, after a week of use there was no scratching or other skin irritations with which we seem to be plagued. So this soap definitely passes the test for sensitive skin in my house. And once again this product has a lovely scent!
The last product which we sampled was the baby moisturizer. Good results were apparent on my kids feet. They are barefoot monsters, really little cave people, and I can hardly keep shoes on their feet for more than a few hours at any one time... Therefore they have already developed calluses and have dry feet. My two year old, Ella, was my first victim. I smoothed on the lotion and it immediately softened all the dry spots. Wyatt, a size 13 wearing four year old, has deeply embedded dirt stains in his heals, so immediate effects of the lotion were not realized until the fourth and fifth day. The Baby Moisturizer leaves a slightly oily feel on your skin, BUT quickly absorbs. I love how it feeds my hands and rough elbows.
So all three of these products are excellent and are made with quality ingredients. And the fact they contain "no nasty chemicals" makes me want to use them all the time. So if you want to buy these products or browse for others go to Eco Store right now.
