The Ology Line- By Walgreens

   
    Did you know that Walgreens recently came out with a new line of personal and household products targeted at those in search of wellness and chemical free living? Their new brand, which debuted this past November, is called Ology. The line is endorsed by Healthy Child Healthy World, one of the nation’s leading independent, non-profit, organizations dedicated to the empowerment of consumers and the protection of children from harmful chemicals. To be quite honest I had never heard of Ology (except bi-ology or sci-ent-ology) until this past week when I headed over to Walgreens to check it out. I set out on a mission to scout out what  products from this line were available, and actually had a really good time with it.



   Weston and I trolled the aisles looking for the distinctive pink, "Ology" labels. The packaging really makes these products stand out. We saw laundry detergent, fabric softener, shampoo, all purpose cleaners, and toilet paper. We smelled all of the personal care products to check to see if we liked the fragrances and were very pleased. We ended up purchasing the toilet paper, the baby shampoo and body wash, as well as the adult conditioner. 

   As far as price goes these products are perhaps a little more expensive than other generic store brands, but the expense is balanced by their quality, chemical free, green products. The toilet paper is made of sugar cane and bamboo husk (the word "suga-butt" may have been tossed around a few times in this house) instead of trees which is pretty cool if you ask me! The hair care products are paraben and sulfate free and did I mention they seriously smell delicious? 



   For the sake of full disclosure you should know that I attempted to buy a shampoo and conditioner (for adults) from the Ology line. I was surprised to find that there was no shampoo on the shelf but the tag was there. I asked the associates if perhaps they had some in the back, but was told that they had all been pulled from the shelves. I contacted the company and was told that the shampoo is in the "...process of being redistributed in order to ensure it meets our high-quality standards and provides the best product available to our customers." I love a company that will admit when something is not perfect, remove it from the shelves, take the loss, and improve the product for the consumer. I think Walgreens and Ology should be applauded for their continued striving for improvement. The smell and quality of the conditioner and baby shampoo are awesome and I am really looking forward to trying the adult shampoo when it is back on the shelf!


  If green, clean, well, living is important to you make sure you check out the Ology line next time you hit up Walgreens. 

 Disclosure I was sent a Walgreen’s gift card for the purposes of obtaining Ology products to review. No other compensation was offered or received. No suggestions or requests to select specific products within the Ology line were offered. I was in no way obligated to write a positive review and all opinions are mine and mine alone. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC regulations.
