Eco-Friendly Baby Products - EcoMom: The Place To Find What You Need For Your Family And Home: My Review and Giveaway!
Of late I have really tried to pay attention to the chemicals I introduce into my home via the products I choose to use. I have chronic allergies and asthma and it just keeps getting worse. I am aware that the chemicals in most supermarket cleaning items just serve to aggravate an already aggravating condition.
I have also come to a place of understanding that I don't have to have a toddler in the house to be concerned about how chemicals affect my teen-aged daughter as well. It is just as important to monitor the chemicals she is exposed to at this age as it is to any other stage of development.
That's one of the things I liked about EcoMom right off the bat; although many of the products are geared to wards families with young children they are just as appropriate for children who are older as well as adults.
EcoMom sent me the BabyGanics Dish Dazzle soap to try. I found this to be a good product that does what it says it will do, namely clean your dishes with no chemical or gel residue.
Check out the ingredients for this product:
Ingredients: Various Naturally Derived Plant Based Cleaning Agents (Coconut, Palm Kernel, Corn and Sugar based surfactants), Water, Preservative (less than 0.1%), Naturally Derived Citrus Fragrance.
Nothing scary there, huh?
If you look around you will find lots of products for baby, child, adult, and home; the prices are reasonable and I love the description of what this company is all about:
