Eco Store Baby Products Review

No Nasty Chemicals™ is the foundation of the entire product line and philosophy of ecoSTORE USA. I love that motto! And this company really lives that philosophy. They have some really great articles on their website such as: "What is Green", "Health Is Not a Fad", and more really cool videos and information about their products.

EcoSTORE USA was founded over 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. That is how ecoSTORE got its start! Pretty cool, right?

I received a few of their baby products after reading more about this company and finding many things I loved. One of my favorite things is that when I go to look at ingredients, I see a short list, and there are no dangerous ingredients at all! We are talking NO toxic petrochemicals, lauryl or laureth sulphates, propylene glycol, dyes, artificial perfumes, parabens, cocamide DEA, or other icky stuff! LOVE THAT!

Their Baby Body Wash is a gentle cleanser that smells fresh and natural. You only have to use a small amount, which is nice, and it is very cost-effective! It doesn't have a baby scent, so you can use it for adults too!

The Baby Shampoo that I also tried was much of the same - a very gentle shampoo that you can use everyday, but you don't need a lot for it to be effective. Since it is so gentle, you don't have to worry about it irritating your baby's eyes or skin either. Again, I think you could definitely use this on adults too, since the smell is just a neutral, natural fresh scent!

I would have loved to see some or all organic ingredients, but I do still appreciate that I don't have to worry that there are dangerous ingredients being absorbed into my or my child's skin.

These products are both very reasonably priced at $10-$11 for an 8 ounce bottle, and I do recommend them, because they are not only safe for your family, but they are safe for the environment at the same time. You can order them online or find them at Meijer or Duane Reade locations near you!
