Eco Store Shampoo & Conditioner | Review
Malcolm and Melanie Rands started ecostore from their home in a permaculture eco-village in New Zealand in 1993. They had been using sustainable, organic gardening practices on their property for years but realised their family was still being exposed to a number of toxic chemicals through the household cleaners and body care products they were using.
Back then there was so little choice available that they decided it was time to look into producing healthier products, with no toxic or unnecessary chemicals, that would work just as well as mainstream brands. They got expert help to start developing laundry products with a philosophy of ‘health first’ that still holds true today. If there’s any doubt about the safety of an ingredient for people’s health as well as the environment, a safer alternative must be found.
With ecostore your health comes first, which is why ecostore choose plant and mineral based ingredients over petrochemical ones wherever possible. Just because an ingredient is plant based, however, doesn’t necessarily mean its safe for your health.
Plant-based shampoo with natural cleansing agents to gently cleanse and revive your hair without removing its natural protective oils. Ecostore shampoo is safer for the environment. With proper greywater systems in place the wash water from your shower or bath can safely be re-used on your flower gardens, lawns and trees. Using safer plant and mineral based formulations is also better for the overall health of your septic tank.
Plant-based conditioner with sweet almond oil to add softness, shine and lustre to your hair. Enhanced with sweet almond oil to help prevent tangles while adding body and shine. Provides natural conditioning and protection.
