I came upon Ecostore USA!
They graciously let me select two products to try, so I decided on the Rose and Cardamon Bodywash and the Laundry Liquid - 32 fl. oz.
This one is natural and healthy for your skin because it is plant based! It's great to know that this does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, artificial dyes, preservatives, or perfumes. Instead, Ecostore USA uses sweet-smelling, certified organic essential oils! The bodywash is a clear liquid with a pleasant smell. I also like the fact that the bottle is narrow and uniquely shaped, making a nice fit on the shower ledge where I keep it.
The laundry liquid thoroughly cleans, and with a fresh, springtime-like scent. Don't be reluctant to try this because it's natural and maybe you're afraid it won't clean your clothing all the way.
Believe me, it works just like the "normal brands". We've been using this ever since it came in, and enjoy our nice clean clothes:)
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.
