Creating a Healthier Home for my Family By Using Ology Products, Available at Walgreens #momsmeet (Review)

Disclosure:  I received this product for free from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a 
Moms Meet Ambassador, I was able to try out these products and share a personal and honest review of the Ology brand line.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Back in 2012, Walgreens introduced a new Eco-friendly line of products called "Ology".  Not only are they products free of harmful chemicals, but they are also very affordable, which is usually not the case when opting for greener personal care and cleaning products for your family and home.  

Luckily, I have a Walgreens a couple exits down from my house, so whenever I find myself running low on Ology products, I can hop in the car and pick up some more.  

Why should you choose products free of chemicals?  While this may seem like a no-brainer, many people are surprised to find that studies have revealed that young children exposed to chemicals in cleaning and personal care products have a higher risk of developing children's diseases and behavioral disorders, including asthma, autism and even cancer.  For me, being a 5 year cancer survivor of a rare form of cancer, I no longer take chances with my and my family's health.  Before coming home after spending six months at my family's home, which was closer to Dana Farber for my daily cancer treatments, I made a point to have my husband throw out all the cleaning products that weren't Eco-friendly or free of harmful chemicals.  I had not thought about personal care products, until I came home and started to read the ingredients on the bottles.  The products with harmful chemicals were quickly thrown out, and I began my search for healthier products.  

After trial and error of greener products, I was finally happy to see Walgreens launch the "Ology" line and include products for baby, personal care and household products including detergents (liquid and fabric softener),  cleaners (glass and all-purpose), compact fluorescent light bulbs, paper products (paper towels, bath towels, napkins and even copy paper), as well as baby lotion and 2-in-1 body wash and adult shampoo and conditioner...just to name a few.

"Ology products are made using plant-based and mineral-based raw materials. And, every Ology bottle is made from 100% post-consumer materials.  If that wasn't enough to get you excited about this healthier brand, you will be happy to learn that all Ology products are never tested on animals and do not contain any animal byproducts."

All Ology products are FREE OF the following HARMFUL CHEMICALS:

  • Ammonia
  • Chlorine bleach
  • DEA (diethanolamine)
  • TEA (triethanolamine)
  • Parabens
  • Phthalates
  • Formaldehyde
  • Nonylphenol ethoxylates
  • Triclosan

The Ology brand is also endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World, a national leading independent nonprofit organization, dedicated to the protection of children from harmful chemicals

Just knowing that the Ology products I have in my home are chemical free really brings relief when thinking about what harmful chemicals I may be exposing my family to.  With Ology products available at Walgreens, I can breath easier knowing this, while also seeing a savings as I don't have to pay top $$$ to get chemical free products.

As a Moms Meet Ambassador I was recently given the opportunity to host an in-home party showing off and raving about the Ology brand line from Walgreens, as well as share a personal review of the products.  

I was sent Ology 2x Laundry Liquid Detergent in their free and clear scent, as well as the all-in-one cleaner and 2-pack of Ology Paper Towels. 

Ology Stain Fighting 2X Laundry Liquid Free & Clear
Ology 2x Laundry Liquid Detergent

Ology 2x Laundry Liquid Detergent is gentle on clothes and your skin,while still fighting tough stains. It works in both HE and regular machines and is formulated to 
thoroughly clean all types of loads (regular, delicates, and woolens).

Ology 2x Laundry Liquid Detergent is available in a free and clear scent, as well as a spring lavender vanilla scent, both of which are derived using only natural ingredients—nothing artificial.

  • The retail price for Ology liquid detergent is $6.79 a bottle.

My Thoughts:

Having been using these products since 2012, my family is no stranger to how well these chemical-free products work.  I for one, can't get over how well the 2x liquid laundry detergent works at getting my kids' clothes clean.  From fun out in the mud to accidental snack spills and juice cup leaks, these ah-oh incidents are no match for the tough cleaning power of this liquid detergent.  With two girls and myself who have sensitive skin and need to steer clear from perfumes and other skin irritants, I don't have to worry about this laundry detergent irritating our skins, as it is gentle enough on both clothes and skin, while working hard to get tough stains out, and leaving clothes looking like new.

Ology Paper Towels 2 Rolls

ology™ Paper Towels

100% tree-free and whitened with H2O2 (a non-chlorine based bleach)

Ology Paper Towels are made from made from readily renewable sugar cane husk and quick-growing bamboo that regenerates in as little as six months.

Ology Paper Towel 2-pack retails for $3.99.

My Thoughts:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these paper towels. Always having to reach for a roll to pick up spills from the girls,or unexpected indoor pet accidents, I can rely on Ology Paper Towels to get the job done and clean up the mess, without falling apart or leaving behind bits and pieces of paper towel residue. Compared to other name brand paper towels, this one really is in a class of its own. It is thicker and feels stronger. And, once you start cleaning with these paper towels, you will find yourself only needing one or two sheets to clean up spills and messes.

Ology All Purpose Cleaner Lemon & Lavender 
ology™ All-Purpose Cleaner

This All-Purpose cleaner can be used in the kitchen on counters, stove tops, as well as throughout the house on most household surfaces.
 The Ology cleaner is free of harmful chemicals. It does not contain any harsh solvents, dyes, ammonia, or artificial fragrances.

The ingredients in this cleaner are plant-based and effectively cut through grease and grime.

Ology All-Purpose Cleaner retails for $3.99 per bottle.

My Thoughts:

This all purpose cleaner is my go-to cleaning product come the weekend when I am cleaning the house.  From cleaning the kitchen top to bottom including appliances and countertops, to handling the bathroom sinks and even mirrors, I can count on Ology All-Purpose Cleaner to remove grease and grime, while not leaving a strong chemical smell that in the past would take days to go away, even with the window open to air out the area.  Whenever friends or family move into a new home, I make a point to add a few bottles of this all-purpose cleaner to their gift basket, which I later hear them rave about. :-)


I really had a blast talking up the Ology brand line from Walgreens, as well as giving out samples to friends at my recent in-house meetup, as well as using the samples sent me for me use and share my thoughts on.  As you can see, I can't stop talking highly of this brand, and can't wait to see if other products will be added in the future. :-)

So, if you are not satisfied with the current personal care or household products you use around your family, when not check out the trusted and much loved Ology line from Walgreens.  Since making the since back in 2012, I can't stop raving about the Ology products to family and friends, and have even seen them taking the pledge to create a healthier environment for their family by throwing out products containing harmful chemicals and saying "hello" to Ology brand products.

Ology. Well. Being. Make a happy, HEALTHY HOME.
