I used to swear by Dawn Dishsoap, pretty much ever since I moved from Germany to the US. It was my go to cleaning the dishes soap, whether I had a dishwasher or not – after all you got to pre-wash the stuff, don’t you?
After some soul searching, research and having a daughter who is adamant about living an ethical, cruelty-free and vegan lifestyle, as well as several allergies later, I have been on the look out to affordably replace my favorite products with healthy, cruelty-free ones.
Not always does that work, either because the products are too expensive, or because they simply do not do their job.
It took me a while to find the perfect replacement for my above-mentioned favorite, but I have finally come across it
Introducing Ecos Dishmate Apricot Dishsoap. Just as strong as Dawn, but unlike the other product, it does not contain Triclosan
an ingredient that is thought to cause skin toxicity, and organ toxicity, and is restricted in its use in Canada and Japan
Ecos Dishmate has a very pleasant smell, not too strong, but also not as week as some of the other green product out there.
It is nice and thick, and inexpensive. I get mine on Amazon Prime Now, delivered directly to my door.
Because of the health concerns of conventional cleaning products, I try to avoid those with harmful ingredients such as Triclosan.
Ecos Dishmate is a dish soap I can use without worrying that I will break out while it does its job well.
It is suitable for those with skin sensitivities, sensitivities to scents, and vegans, and has an overall rating of “Excellent” on GoodGuide.com
You can get Ecos Dishmate Apricot on Amazon now!
Also available Lavender, Free & Clear, Almond and Grapefruit
Dawn Dishsoap has a GoodGuide rating of fair, with a health rating of 0, due to its potentially dangerous ingredients.
