I think becoming parents makes us more aware of things that we never thought twice about before we had our bundles of joy. Before I had kids I never worried about what kind of chemicals were in my toilet cleaner or if the shampoo I used was good for the planet, but as soon as I brought my daughter home from the hospital all of that changed. Suddenly being "green" took on a whole new meaning!
Hearing all of the negative things that have been brought to light recently about everything from the lead amounts in the toys our children play with to the chemicals that are in the baby shampoo we use has really made me take stock of the products I use in my home, that's why when I was approached by EcoStore USA to review some of their products I was very excited to do so.
EcoStore USA offers "eco friendly, plant-based 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."
All of the products that EcoStore USA offers are made from plant and mineral based ingredients, they are free of chemicals (as a matter of fact their philosophy is "No Nasty Chemicals"), and they are all safe for the environment...come on how much more can a mom ask for? Their product line features everything from baby care products to products for your pet and everything in between.
We were lucky enough to get to try out three of EcoStore USA's great baby care products; Baby Nappy Balm, Baby Sleepytime Bath, and Baby Soap. I can't tell you how reassuring it was using these products on my babies knowing that they were 100% safe and free of all of the toxic chemicals that we all worry about! I loved the smell of the baby soap and not only did it do a great job of getting my dirty lil man clean it also left him with that baby soft skin that we all love. The Baby Sleepytime bath did wonders for Ki Ki, she has colic and it seems that she never settles down and just relaxes, but when I used the Sleepytime Bath I could tell a world of difference, she seemed more calm and so much less fussy and getting her to go to sleep was dreamfully easy! The Baby Nappy Balm is amazing for diaper rashes or just as a soothing balm for babies bottom. I absolutely loved all of the products I used and would definitely use them again and not only are the products great for baby and the planet they're pretty easy on your wallet as well!
