Ecomom was founded so as to address the connection between the health of our children and the health of our environment.  Ecomom is seriously committed to making eco-conscious living easy, affordable, and rewarding. By helping to offer a place to find things to take better care of themselves and their families – with education, support, tools and products.

Ecomom was launched by 2 moms and has grown to include every family member for the good of family and the environment.
The Ecomom motto is "Love your Family. Love the Planet." and they stand by this commitment to uphold this in their products they sell as well as the articles they share with their readers and customers.

So here is what I received to review:
Priti Nail Polish, Pangea Organics, Egyptian Magic

Priti Organic Nail Polish in American Star- This is a eco-friendly nail polish that is free from carcinogens. It is a non-toxic nail polish in a reddish pink shade. It is TFFF/DBP THREE FREE NAIL ENAMEL with a rich colour. Priti nail polish, polish remover, cuticle oil,and sugar scrub are created with organic resources that are safe for people and the planet. Priti's luxury nail polish in beautiful colors, without the chemicals. Priti in Sanskrit means “out of satisfaction, with love, pleasurable sensation, affection, attraction, happy.” The non-toxic nail polishes are not drying nor yellowing. Designed and named after beautiful flowers and plants. The polish is fast drying, chip resistant, and has a super glossy finish.
Priti NYC Organic is a luxury line of nail polishes are formulated without known carcinogens toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and formaldehyde and without camphor or petroleum ingredients. No animal testing, certified vegan. No ingredients listed by NTP, IARC or OSHA as carcinogenic.
Priti also has a soy nail polish remover is EPA APPROVED as non-toxic and completely biodegradable, making it safe for Priti princesses and expecting goddesses to use.

Priti NYC Nail Polish is known among beauty insiders as the leader in luxury eco-friendly nail polish, Priti NYC is the brainchild of  Kim D’Amato when she took it upon herself during her pregnancy, to make a conscious effort to switch to organic foods and healthy living. She created Priti to beautify herself and at the same time she was supporting organic farmers as well as decreasing the chemicals poisoning the earth and its inhabitants. At last, a safe, durable, conscious, luxurious, high quality line of nail polish!
Here are a list of some of the ingredients and their details on how they are eco-friendly...
Ingredients: Butyl Acetate – an organic compound common used as a solvent. Colorless, soluble found in many types of fruit such as red apples and used as flavoring in candy, and baked goods. It also has the sweet smell of banana. Ethyl Acetate – colorless organic compound with a pungent smell like pear drops. Used as a solvent. Nitrocellulose – long lasting film-forming agent derived from cellulose. Acetyl Tributyl Citrate – colorless non-toxic liquid used as a food additive. Phthalic Anhydride/Trimellitic Anhydride/Glycols Copolymer – intermediate for the synthesis of surface coating in dyes and adhesives. Isopropyl Alcohol – non-toxic alternative to formaldehyde. Stearalkonium Hectorite – thickening agent to make sure all the glitter doesn't sink to the bottom. Adipic Acid/Fumaric Acid/Phthalic Acid/Tricyclodecane Dimethanol Copolymer – organic compound used as a food flavorant ingredient, found in mushrooms and lichen. Citric Acid – from citrus fruits. 
Princess B always wants to be the little woman...
don't grow up too fast Mama already dies
a little inside everyday you get older
Review: I loved the colour and the fact that I could apply it to Princess B's nails without the fear it would be eating or even make its way near her mouth. The colour was red with a bright pink undertone, and during application there was only a slight smell rather that then noxious smells that come from the other polishes out there on the market. The paint did not chip off nor did it yellow our nails. It is definitely a hit with Princess B and Mama. It definitely reminded me of the red in the stripes of the American flag. It went on smooth and didn't need more than two coats for the best coverage, one coat on Princess B's nails was great for her to show off her diva-ness!

Pangea Organics Shower Gel in Italian White Sage with Geranium & Yarrow- Pangea Organics is a "Ecocentric"  body care company. They focus on nuturing, handcrafted, organic, fair trade (whenever possible) and cruelty-free when creating their products. The shower gel is formulated with organic oils of olive oil, hempseed, coconut, and jojoba; and infused with exotic essential oil aromas. They are skin conditioner and great for use when shaving. The shower gels are thick and in a concentrated form so they last longer. The White Sage has properties of antioxidant, calming and soothing while the Geranium has toning, rejuvenating and uplifting properties; and the Yarrow is anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying. The shower gel for the mind: uplifting/ body: balancing.
Review: This was a wonderful smelling and tingling all over refresher for me. I loved being taking in by the intoxicating scents that arose from the shower. I truly felt it help me find myself after a long day of needing balance and calming. The uplifting smell woke my senses.

Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream- Egyptian Magic is a skin care cream with legendary healing powers due to its unique blend of all natural ingredients derived only from living plants and organisms. Egyptian Magic has been on the market for 25 years and has grown through word of mouth into one of the most popular and widely endorsed skin creams in the world. Egyptian Magic is made from the purest, all-natural ingredients we can find. These ingredients are widely believed to yield healthful effects on the skin and have been used for centuries to care for and nourish the skin: olive oil, bees wax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly and bee propolis.
Review: I loved how light this cream was when I put it on. I used on my face as well as on a few stretch marks just to see if it would make a change in them. I noticed that my face seemed more elastic and firm while the stretch marks were not really showing any sign of change but perhaps if I use it a little longer they will. My skin  has a tendency to get a little dry with our Canadian winters and windchill factors, and my skin didn't seem to be as dry and had a pick-me-up to it. Love the
