  1. Our story

    Our story

    Malcolm and Melanie Rands founded ecostore on New Zealand’s Northland coast in 1993.

    Part of a group that created an eco-village nestled in a valley dotted with streams and surrounded by native forest, the Rands set out to make their home as clean and green as the land they called home.

    By creating hardworking, highly effective products for people and their home, removing harmful or unnecessary chemicals, the ecostore ethos has always been to put people’s health first and give them the choice to live clean.

    From one New Zealand family to another – the Rands passed the baton to the Kraus family in 2013. Now led by Pablo Kraus, our goal is to be the world’s most trusted and sustainable home and body care brand.

    Today we continue to proudly develop, manufacture and pack our household cleaners, laundry, body care, skincare, baby care and oral care products at our own carboNZero certified factory in Auckland and share them with the world.

  2. Sugar plastic

    Sugar plastic

    A sweet approach to the plastic problem

    Right now, climate change and plastic pollution are two of the biggest challenges we all face. Recently we’ve noticed that more people are talking about the plastic problem – which is great - because it’s an issue that needs to be tackled.

    Since ecostore started in 1993, we’ve been committed to making products that are safer for people and our world. This philosophy goes hand in hand with ensuring we create packaging that is as sustainable as possible – it’s hugely important to us and we take this responsibility very seriously.

    Most plastic is made from non-renewable petrochemicals. The extraction process and conversion into plastic releases carbon into the atmosphere, adding to climate change. So, a number of years ago we challenged ourselves to find a packaging alternative that is safer for our planet.

    And we found one. It's plastic made from sugarcane.

  3. Our palm oil policy

    Our palm oil policy

    Our commitment to sustainable palm oil

    ecostore is committed to using certified sustainable palm oil as it is a healthier and safer alternative to petrochemicals. It requires significantly less land than coconut for an equivalent yield. Our target is to achieve traceability back to the palm oil mills of our suppliers. While we believe certified sustainable palm oil is the best option for now, we are also keeping a watching brief on alternative developments such as oil derived from algae.

    Our policy on sustainable palm oil can be found on pages 26-31 of our 2018 Sustainability Report

    Safer for you and our world

    We’re continually innovating to improve our products to achieve the highest health, safety and performance standards. We use trusted international resources such as the EWG Skin Deep® Cosmetic Database to help us assess the safety of every ingredient.

    We're also committed to using sustainable palm oil and palm derivatives.

    Since ecostore began, we’ve had thousands of customers tell us that after using our products their eczema has cleared up, their asthma is getting better, they don’t sneeze when they’re cleaning their home, or their skin rash has gone.

  8. Our artists

    Our artists

    Supermarket shelves are home to a dazzling array of brightly coloured products. We like to do things a bit differently at ecostore - like our product formulations, our packaging is simple and elegant. We've created it along with other key aspects of our brand in collaboration with this talented and creative group.

  9. Value for money

    Value for money

    We believe safer, healthier products shouldn’t have to be more expensive. Which is why our products are concentrated to make a little go a long way.

    Using ecostore products, it costs less to clean your dishes in the dishwasher and do your laundry.

    In 2018, New Zealand advocacy group Consumer put 13 dishwasher tablets to the test to find out which offered better performance and value. Our Dishwasher Tabs performed brilliantly against the big brands, ranking 4th overall, doing a great job for a great price.

    Here’s our cost per wash vs the market leader (based on NZ Supermarket pricing, Sept 2018):
