Good Home Co. Products Tested on Good People, not Good Animals
Inspired by her parents' farm in Ohio, Christine Dimmick started the Good Home Co. making products on her kitchen stove. The Good Home Co. does not test on animals, only "good humans", and the products are vegan. They do not contain harsh chemicals.
Lately "organic" products have been popular in the market place, however none of our products would be deemed organic. Why? Because in order to be organic, all ingredients must be "grown", which is why the term organic relates to food. We use food items, but we also use other ingredients, such as water and soaps, that simply cannot be "grown". We hold ourselves to high ethics and standards and will not deceive our customers with claims that are impossible and do not pertain to our products, now matter how trendy they currently are. Though one ingredient we use may be deemed organic, if all ingredients cannot make this claim, then the product cannot be ingredient.
I agree with the above statement, but when I read the labels on the Good Home Co. products I was sent to review, not only are some non-descript (fabric softener and fragrance), none are labeled as organic. I understand not labeling an entire product as organic for the above reasons, but I like my products to contain some organic ingredients. In fact, I take some offense at being labeled as "trendy" for caring about herbicide and pesticide use in our environment.
We were sent the following products:
The Environmental Working Group
has given the Good Home Co.'s fragrance a hazard score of 8. That's pretty high. Other products contain chemical colorants. The Good Home Co. does not claim to be all-natural and admits to using manmade ingredients in its fragrance.
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
