Last weekend, we brought the children to Cherating Turtle Sanctuary. One of the panels in the exhibition talked about pollution of the ocean by man-made waste. And how that endangers the marine ecosystem. Do you know that plastic items can take 20-500 years to decompose? So every step that we take to reduce plastic waste contributes towards saving our planet! Read this article on WWF to find out more about plastic pollution. Reducing carbon footprint is everyone's responsibility.
In our home, we try to reduce, reuse and recycle. We have made do with plastic straws and replace them with washable metal straws instead. As for plastic bottles, we tend to choose products with eco-friendly features. Therefore Ecostore products remain our choice. We have been using their laundry detergents and baby care products for some time now.
All Ecostore product bottles are made of renewable sugarcane plastic which is 100% recyclable. The ingredients used in Ecostore products are also suitable for the septic tank. Bath water can be reused to water the garden if one has a proper gray water system in place. Their products are made in New Zealand following the strictest environmental standards in ISO14001, Enviromark Diamond and CarboNzero certified factories.
Ecostore Baby Care products consist of a complete series of hair shampoo, body wash and body oil. The ingredients are plant based (GE and GMO free--which means no genetically modified crops) and cruelty free. There are no harsh chemicals like SLS/SLES, paraben, PEGs, dimethicone, synthetic dyes and perfumes. Do you know that newborn skin does not need soap for the first few weeks anyway?
Ecostore Baby Hair Shampoo
Baby Yi's hair are fine and soft. His scalp is sensitive and develop cradle cap sometimes.
Infused with lavender, eucalyptus and geranium oil, this hair shampoo allows gentle yet effective cleansing and is able to hydrate the scalp at the same time. This essential oil blend also relaxes the little one.
Ecostore Baby Body Wash
As with other Ecostore products, this body wash is dermatologically tested. Eucalyptus, lavender and aloe vera are the main ingredients used to nourish, hydrate and soothe sensitive baby skin. Our bedtime routine with Bing and Yi includes a warm shower filled with the relaxing scent of lavender. Children needs some down time, just like us adults before turning in.
Ecostore Baby Body Oil
Baby Yi used to scream every night and fight sleep as an infant. I almost lost my sanity sometimes holding and breastfeeding him for hours in a stretch. Ecostore body oil became our massage oil every night to relax him. I also used the oil to fade itchy stretch marks during confinement. Besides that, the oil works really well to soften baby Yi's cradle cap along the hairline. Again it smells wonderful because of the lavender, not to mention the great moisturizing effect of both blackcurrant and almond oil.
What does Dr Yingzangel think?
New Zealand has one of the strictest standards in the world when it comes to baby skincare products. Therefore, I feel rest assured that the Ecostore baby series is 100% safe for my children, as well as the environment. Given the high quality, the price tag is very much affordable and value for money.
