If you are a regular to my blog, you know that I tend to write about organic or natural derived products.  I guess as I grew older and became more aware, I realized the dangers that lurk in our common every day products and food.  With that said, when Ecostore USA offered me a chance to receive two complimentary products of my choice, I was interested.  If you are like me, you might have been or still might be reluctant to try something that is not a name brand or contains all the tried and true chemicals you've grown accustomed to.

If you aren't familar with Ecostore USA, they are an extension of Ecostore NZ that was founded more than 20 years ago so they have the experience and credibility behind them.  In this eco farm based village, two people, Melanie and Malcolm Rands, started their business.  Within time, business grew as families wanted safer alternatives for their children and themselves.  Ecostore NZ offers more than 100 products that meets the most stringent environmental and sustainability standards.

Ecostore USA's motto is No Nasty* Chemicals and you can read more about their company via their blog here.  You can also find a wealth of information ranging from videos to podcasts to a glossary and more here.

For my review, I chose the Auto Dish Powder and the Manuka Honey &Kelp Soap.  The Auto Dish Powder is a blend of mineral salts, citrus and coconut oils.  It only takes one tablespoon in the dishwasher and it worked without leaving any films or dirt behind.  There were no odors of chemicals either.  I have used it for five days and have not found any issues with the Auto Dish Powder.  I prefer having an all natural dish washing detergent over one that is full of chemicals that I don't know what they are let alone pronounce.  The bottle is plain and not very eye catching but that is not a concern of mine.

I would recommend the Auto Dish Powder as it does the job, requires only one tablespoon and is reasonably priced at $12.00 a bottle. 

The Manuka Honey & Kelp Soap is made of all natural ingredients and comes in a pretty green bar with Ecostore imprinted on it.


  • Sodium Palmate (palm oil)
  • Sodium Cocoate (coconut oil)
  • Sodium chloride (salt)
  • Vegetable Glycerine
  • Tetra Sodium Etidronate and Tetra Sodium EDTA (antioxidants used to preserve the stability of vegetable oils in soap base. Derived from vinegar. Safe for skin)
  • Kelp
  • Wheatgerm oil
  • Manuka Honey
  • Bran
  • Natural pigments
  • Fragrance
The soap quickly works with a deep, rich lather but rinses easily.  I found I did not have to use a lot of soap to get the lather I feel shows its cleaning.  The fragrance is pleasant and my skin truly felt softer and moisturized.  I felt more assurred with this soap given the ingredients are listed on the site, are all natural and I really liked the combination of products such as the Manuka honey, bran and kelp even though I think of Sponge Bob due to my children.

I am sold on this soap and would recommend it especially if you are concerned with the chemicals and additives that are in every day normal soap you buy.

If you are in the US, there are 21 products to choose from ranging from Baby Care, Bath & Body, Hair, Household, Pets and gift certificates.
