We may not be aware of it but everyday we put on chemicals in our body through the products that we use. These chemicals accumulate gradually over time and before we know it, toxin- related symptoms start showing up. What we often dismiss as something common like skin problems, fatigue, constipation, insomnia, hormonal imbalance, brain fog etc. are actually the result of our bodies working overtime to get rid of the toxins.
Scary, isn’t it? How then do we help our bodies reduce its toxic load? We can start off by doing away with products that we don’t need. Do you really need all those bottles of bath products lining up your bathroom shelves?
Keeping track of what you’re putting into your body isn’t only beneficial for you but for the environment, too.
ecostore, a brand from New Zealand was created with the aim to take harmful chemicals out of the home because they know that it’s not easy for you to tell what’s in the products that you buy from the stores. They believe that what you put in your skin is just as important as what you eat. In a world where tens of thousands of chemicals find its way to the products that we use, they’re always on the lookout for safer alternatives.
Safer For You
Made from plant-based ingredients, each product has been formulated to closely-match the oils and amino acids produced by your baby’s skin. Their products are designed to clean the skin without removing the natural oils that are present. Their baby range has nourishing ingredients like goat’s milk, lavender, geranium, New Zealand- native horopito extract, cocoa and shea nut butters.
Did you know that your clothes have carbon footprints, too? Choose detergents or powders which are made from ingredients which are less harmful to the environment. Water used with ecostore cleaning products can safely be re-used on your flower gardens, lawns and trees. Their laundry products are tough on stains but gentle on delicate skin. It is safely super- concentrated to give you up to 32 washes per 1kg pack.
Kinder To The Planet
From ingredients-sourcing to production and packaging, ecostore has sustainably-sourced plant and mineral-based ingredients over petrochemical ones.
Case in point: Their bottles are made from renewable sugarcane plastic that is 100% recyclable which is a big help in carbon foot print reduction and a good way to address the growing problem of plastic pollution. ecostore believes that safer and healthier products shouldn’t have to be more expensive which is why their products are economically-concentrated – a little really goes a long way.
I’ve been using the Ultra Sensitive Body Wash for three months now. It’s highly concentrated that a bottle can last you for two months. This range contains a special ingredient called harakeke, New Zealand’s native flax known for its hydrating and soothing properties. It’s also fragrance-free. For someone who has atopic dermatitis like me, this one fits the bill. You’re guaranteed that there’s nothing in there that can cause skin break outs. I use it on my face, too.
As for my toddler, she loves taking a nice, warm bath before I tuck her to bed. The Sleepytime Bath with its gentle blend of lavender and geranium oils helps her relax and wind down. It’s a bed time routine which we’ve established so she can sleep on time and we can do away with all that drama of getting her to bed.
