It’s not every day that a whole line of products surprises us. This week we had the chance to test out a new line of products from locally-based Foster Naturals, and they quite simply blew our expectations right out of the water!
First up were the shampoo and conditioner. Like other natural shampoos, it didn’t bubble up like conventional shampoo. This was as I expected.
What I didn’t expect was the gorgeous smell that completely filled the shower. It was like I was in an orange grove in the sunshine. Definitely a happy place!
LOVE that this shampoo & conditioner is safe & gentle enough for kids & pets too.
Next I tried the multi-surface cleaner and again… the crisp orange scent was so magical I almost forgot that I had a whole room to clean.
The cleanser was gentle but made quick work of a kitchen that had endured a seven year old cooking dinner.
Any product that simplifies kitchen clean-up this well is a winner in my book!
I decided to attack the dishes in the sink while I was at it. Wow!
The fresh burst of lemon/lime was intoxicating and the ecoOrganic dish soap cut through some pretty grimy messes. I suffer from eczema on my hands and harsh cleaners can really set it off. The gentle nature of this soap was not a problem at all.
This dish soap is safe for baby bottles, kid dishes, pet dishes, and makes for a great fruit & vegetable wash. And bonus points for busy families that it doubles as a dishwasher detergent!
At this point I was on a roll, so it was off to the laundry room to try the ecoOrganic Laundry Detergent.
I was surprised that a 950ml bottle was good for 100 loads and I was tempted to put in more than the 1 ½ pumps that were directed, but I did as the bottle said. Again the fresh lavender scent lulled me into a happy place (a difficult task when it comes to laundry).
I was impressed that it’s 100% biodegradable, hypoallergenic, PETA/vegan friendly & fair trade, not to mention free of GMOs, gluten, dioxane, zeolite, sulfates, phosphates, added mineral phosphates or enzymes, bleaching or brightening chemicals, synthetic fragrance, fillers & artificial colours.
We have sensitive skin when it comes to laundry soap and this was a real comfort. I am a true believer! The clothes came out clean and fresh and I’m relieved to know that we won’t be dealing with skin reactions any more.
We also understand that the anti-bacterial, anti-microbial properties of the soapwort & lavendar in this detergent make it especially effective at cleaning cloth diapers!
I’m blown away by the all of the products in the home care & hair care lines from Foster Naturals.
We have a chance to test quite a few products in a year and this entire line stood out.
