So who or what is ecoSTORE USA?
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.
ecoSTORE USA has formulated its products without toxic petrochemicals, phosphates, nitrates, chlorine, ammonia, enzymes, synthetic perfumes, coloring or dyes, optical whiteners/brighteners or chemical preservatives. Instead, ecoSTORE USA uses sustainable ingredients derived from plants and minerals, producing safer products that work equally as effectively as those that are chemical-based. Customers anecdotally have reported that, after using ecostore USA laundry products to wash clothes and linens, children’s eczema and dermatitis have disappeared, while allergies and asthma symptoms have decreased.
ecoSTORE USA guarantees its products:
• are plant- and/or mineral-based and free of nasty chemicals (No nasty chemicals™)

• are formulated with your health in mind
• are safely super-concentrated

I was generously sent two of there products. The first product is there hypoallergenic pet shampoo. Our dog Saydie has very sensitive skin and after a lot of vet visits and trials with different products we discovered that she's hypoallergenic. We usually buy her *very* expensive shampoos and with sometimes 3 bathes a week that can get very crazy on the bank account, but I'm sure the pet stores love us!
I love the Soothing Hypoallergenic Shampoo and I know Saydie does too. It works just as well as the expensive brand we used to buy (if not BETTER!). Another bonus, i leaves her smelling like honey & almonds, I just wanna eat her up!
At only $9.50 for a 12oz bottle, it's a ton more affordable then the previous brands we've been buying.
The ecoStore USA is mild enough for frequent uses and is great on dogs and cats (puppies & kittens over 6 weeks).
The other product I was lucky enough to test out was the Pure Oxygen Whitener for the laundry.
I use baby laundry detergent on Kendall's clothes and I love knowing that the Pure Oxygen Whitener is something I can add to her laundry. It makes me feel so much better knowing clothes that touch her sensitive skin don't have chemicals in them that I can't even pronounce.
Again, like all the ecoSTORE usa product the Pure Oxygen Whitenerdoesn't have any nasty chemicals. No toxic petrochemicals, no phosphates, no nitrates, no chlorine, no EDTA, no optical whiteners & no dyes or synthetic perfumes... just nice perfectly white and bright clothes!
