It seems everyone is trying to detoxify their homes these days. We all want happy, healthy environments for our families to live in. Reading the back of bottles is impossible-you can forget about even pronouncing the ingredients! I’ve spent a lot of time researching products, especially cleaning supplies and personal care items. It scares me that I could be lathering up harmful suds in my child’s hair or washing clothes in chemical-ridden detergents that rub against their delicate skin all day long. My healthy home needs natural, safe products. Social responsibility is important as well. Because after all, we are leaving this planet to our children!
Healthy alternatives can be found in some stores, but they are hard to find, usually expensive and sometimes… well, they just don’t work well compared to their chemical-happy counterpart! So what do we do? Walgreens is looking to change all of this with their exclusive NEW Ology line!
The Ology line is free from the ten following harmful chemicals: Ammonia, Chlorine bleach, DEA (diethanolamine), TEA (triethanolamine), Parabens, Phthalates, Formaldehyde, Nonylphenol ethoxylates, Triclosan, SLS, SLES. It is also free from artificial dyes and fragrances. And because of this, it’s endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World-an organization that is dedicated to creating healthy environments for children. Walgreens Ology brand offers household cleaners, paper products, personal care and also baby products! One of my favorite Ology products so far is the amazing Laundry Detergent Spring Lavender & Vanilla. First off, it smells delicious! It leaves the laundry smelling fresh with just the perfect hint of lavender and vanilla. It works great for the inevitable mud stain and food spill! They also have a Ology Stain Fighting 2X Laundry Liquid Free & Clear.
My little boy has the softest, most gentle skin. Everything we have tried on him has left him with an itchy rash. After a trip to the pediatric allergist, we knew that it was a sensitivity. He is sensitive to heavy fragrance or other concoctions that some major companies put in their detergent. Ology Laundry Detergent is perfect for him. And it’s plant based and easy on the environment! Last week I took my best friend to Walgreens to show her the Ology products. She is another very concerned mom with two small children. She was amazed to see everything that Ology has to offer! First we found the Honey Bar Soap in a 3 pack. Do you see the beautiful cream colored package on the second to the bottom shelf?
In different parts of the Walgreens we also found the Ology White Pear & Cucumber Shampoo and Conditioner, and the Ology Cube Facial Tissue in the same beautiful packaging.
Now I’m not saying that anyone timed us, that we dashed around the store or that Laura Leighton was there… but if so, it might have looked a bit like this:
No, we took our time. We even had coffee in our hands as we read the labels on the back of products. Here is what ended up in our cart:
Ology Facial Tissue comes in a cute, compact cube. The paper products are 100% tree free! There are no tree materials involved in the making of soft, yet strong tissue. Can you believe that it is actually made from sugar cane husk and bamboo-both of which readily renewable. It is also biodegradable and septic safe-less waste! It is whitened with H2O2, a non-chlorine bleach!
The Ology Moisturizing & Revitalizing White Pear & Cucumber Shampoo and Moisturizing & Nourishing White Pear & Cucumber Conditioner smelled amazing in the store. They are sulfate, paraben, silicone, artificial fragrance and phthalates free! They revitalize your hair, make it shiny and healthy looking!
How many times do we wash our hands during the day? Too many for me to count! Usually my hands get dry from all of that scrubbing. The Oatmeal and Honey triple milled soap bars work to clean your hands by way of natural exfoliation, instead of relying on harsh, harmful chemicals! These amazing products are only available at Walgreens! I am so happy to find all of these healthy, chemical free products all under one roof, and for just a few dollars! Thanks for showing me how with Ology, #WalgreensOlogy and #CollectiveBias!
