0 EcoStore Review

While I don't live a completely "green" lifestyle, the eco-friendly movement has inspired me to seek out more products that are eco-friendly. When approached to review products from Ecostore USA, I jumped at the chance.
Here's a little about Ecostore:
"Our eco friendly 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 hand and body washes are made from naturally derived ingredients that gently cleanse, condition and nourish your skin.  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. 
Now available in the USA market, ecoSTORE USA is partnered with New Zealand-based ecostore; a mainstream choice in consumer products that help people throughout New Zealand, Australia, and select locations in Asia and the UK, take better care of their health and homes. For even more information about our New Zealand partners, visit their site at "

Ecostore USA carries products such as:
After careful consideration, I chose a body wash and dishwashing powder. The shipping was quick and I started using them both, from that very first day that I received them.

Rose & Cardamon Body Wash: 

13.5 fl oz (400 ml)
This product contains no chemicals and is plant based.
Made in the USA
I love the smell of this body wash. It reminds me more of relaxation oils than body wash. The aroma is pleasing but not too strong. My big test for this was the lather. I was pleasantly suprised that it had no problems in that department. Throughout washing, the lather didn't go away, either which is a huge plus. It's saves so much hassle, that you don't have to continue to reapply to the loofah. It also cuts down on waste, because you only need a small bit and that will do the job. My skin was left feeling soft and moisturized. I even shaved my legs using it, and my legs were smooth, with no after shave effects.

Non toxic auto dishwash powder from Ecostore USA
Auto Dishwash Powder:

35.3 oz
This product contains no chemicals and is plant based.
Made in New Zealand
This does a fantastic job. Because this is super concentrated, I get to use less, which means it will last a lot longer. For a load of dishes, you only have to use 1 full tbsp. With some powder dish soap, I have had problems with it leaving a "grit" on my clean dishes and you have to wash the dish over after the run through the dishwasher. I don't have that problem at all with this product. The dishes are squeaky clean.
For an eco-friendly tip, use white vinegar as a rinse aid.

I want to thank Maggie from Ecostore for introducing me to your products. I am happy to be using them and sharing them here.
