A good grocery retailer. This Swedish grocery retailer uses to have the lowest prices on their grocery. Their grocery is generally cheaper than for instance Ica, but they also reduce their prices on their items for some short times. Willys in Borås had a very good promotion offer that caused me to travel more to Borås and visit their store. Cheap soaps and shampoos contain lots of chemistry that is dangerous for human health, ingredients causing cancer and different health problems that are not good. This is why I never buy those cheap soaps. With cheap soaps in this case I mean soaps that have a low standard price and therefore not necessarily price reduced by 60-75 percents, or reduced from a high price to a low one.
There is a Danish company called Urtekram. They produce for instance soaps and shampoos that are organic. If we read their international list of ingredients (INCI), I could not find any strange chemistry that causes cancer or any other health dangers. These soaps are organic, but the problem is that they're usually expensive. Usually these soaps and shampoos cost up to 100-200 Swedish crowns for every litre! But Willys in Borås had a promotion offer on these products and I used this one as much as I could, so I don't need to spend more money for the same products in the long range. Gekås in Ullared sells organic soaps of Urtekram for 50 crowns for every pint bottle (100 crowns for every litre). The problem is that I live far away from Ullared, there are so bad bus connections towards Ullared that I have no possibilities to get there, and also the fact that Gekås is only getting worse and worse (I wrote a review of Gekås in Ullared earlier). The organization called Jordklok sells the same products for a little higher prices than Gekås, but if Willys never had their promotion offer on Urtekram's organic soaps, I would have to choose between Gekås and Jordklok. I would buy the soaps from Jordklok that would send me those products directly to my residence, so I avoid crush of people, stress and unnecessary costs for bus trips. However, Willys in Borås had a promotion on Urtekram's organic soaps and shampoos where a pint bottle with a soap like this one costed only 20 crowns, that means 40 crowns for every litre. That was cheaper than both from Gekås and Jordklok, and that was a huge price reducing too.
I know that Urtekram's organic soaps usually are pretty expensive and cost up to 100-200 crowns for every litre. For how long time Willys would offer that promotion on these products reducing the price to only 40 crowns per litre, I could never know that. One day this promotion offer will expire, and from that day I would have to spend more money for same products. Instead of allowing this to happen, I bought lots of these products in order to save even more money in a longer range, and these reserves that I got at home are guaranteed to last for at least one whole year.
