I was recently contacted by a fabulous company to see if I was interested in giving some of their products a try. Ecostore USA specializes in products that are not only safe for the environment; they are safe for you.
In the past few years the media has been saturated with the term "green." Apparently we've come to realize that the way we've been doing things is not only destroying our planet, but it is also leading to allergies and diseases. Among some of the things you won't find in Ecostore's products are: phosphates, synthetic perfumes or dyes, enzymes, chlorine, or ammonia. The three products I chose to try were Citrus Spray Cleaner, Herbal Fresh Shampoo for pets, and the Baby Moisturizer.
The Citrus Spray Cleaner comes in a spray container. It is priced at only $9.00 for 17 fluid ounces. When compared to other natural products of its kind, this is a real bargain. A refill is available for only $7.00. Although I primarily used this product in the kitchen, I would also recommend its use in the bathroom as well. I put it to the test after a spaghetti dinner. The Citrus Spray Cleaner easily removed spaghetti sauce from my stove top and counters. It also helped with a butter cleanup left over from some garlic bread. After the dishes were loaded in the dishwasher, I used it to clean around the sink faucet. It removed all traces of that nights dinner, plus it added a nice shine.
The second product I requested was the Herbal Fresh All Natural Shampoo for pets. We are the proud owner of an eight year old poodle mix named Harley. Harley generally goes to the local groomer for her baths. I have bought over the counter products before, but I have never been completely satisfied. The Herbal Shampoo had a light scent. In the past, I have had Harley jump out of the sink while getting her bath, but not that day. She seemed to thoroughly enjoy the experience. The product lathered quickly, was not too thick, and was easy to rinse from my dogs hair. After I was through, I combed and dried her. Her apricot coat was left shiny, and she even had a hint of herbal scent when I was done.
The last product I requested was the Baby Moisturiser. I chose this product specifically for my four year old who suffers from severe Eczema. While there is no cure for eczema, and this product makes no claims, most doctors will tell you to use a good moisturizer over the topical steroids that are often prescribed for this condition. I can't begin to tell you the amount of creams we have tried for my son. After using the Baby Moisturiser for a few days I noticed a more conditioned look in my sons skin. The moisturiser is very light and nongreasy. Essentially, a little goes a long way. I also used the moisturizer on my own hands. The normal cracks appeared less noticeable, and the texture was much softer.
If you are not already using Ecostore products, I ask that you give them a try. It's time that we all start paying closer attention to what we are putting in and on our bodies.
