When word was out on the street that sustainably built, non-toxic and chemical-free laundry based company, Ecostore would soon be delving into the Skin care realm, we all got a little excited here at ACC HQ!
My love affair with the natural, New Zealand born products began with my health overhaul in 2013, where I cut out sugar, gluten, and dairy from my diet in desperate attempt to find out what was causing the overarching triggers to what was a severely fatigued and inflamed body. And, as the elimination began within my diet so did the roll-out throughout my home – looking into natural alternatives to our everyday exposures of detergents, sprays, soaps and laundry liquids, – The Ecostore brand came out front-runner by a mile.
I first fell in love with the ethos of the brand and cute packaging that deemed a perfect fit for my design obsessed brain. It was no surprise due to the popularity and rise of the ‘al natural – everything’ – that the company would take the next step into skin care, and boy-oh-boy, I’m sure glad they did.

I know what you are thinking, natural, great! But does it actually work? I’ve been road testing the range over the last 7 months and can tell you, my less is more approach to my skin care routine has proven to have huge benefits on my skin; including reduced sensitivity, fewer breakouts, increased hydration around the eyes ( hello Multi-Nutrient Facial Oil – it’s a game changer ) and the added benefit of a clutter-free bathroom cupboard. And for the travelers? There is the perfect “ This is me” travel kit that I have in my bag with me just about every day. Perfect for post gym, on flights and weekends away – ensuring you always have that little bit of natural nourishing love wherever you go.
Here is a quick guide to my favourite must-haves.

The combination of New Zealand seaweed and grapeseed extract, enhanced with harakeke, forms a unique barrier on the skin to seal in essential nutrients. I find this the perfect weight for a daytime coverage.

Nourishing Manuka Lip Balm
A nourishing blend of New Zealand Manuka honey and beeswax, with oomega-richblackcurrant oil to help protect and repair dry and damaged lips.
New Zealand’s unique UV conditions help create this premium range. Sauvignon blanc grapes from the renowned wine growing region of Marlborough produce high levels of antioxidants to protect themselves from strong sun, and we get this antioxidant benefit from the grapeseed extract used in SKIN by ecostore. The antioxidant level in the grapeseed extract is 50 times stronger than Vitamin E and 20 times stronger than Vitamin C. Wow!
