It burns!

Evolved promises that this is hypo-allergenic, but I had an allergic reaction to this product due to a chemical that is a known irritant.

Overview
This product stumped me. I love Evolved as a company, so when I was shopping for a toy cleaner, I immediately turned to Evolved. I went to use this to clean two rubber toys. About 3 minutes after I had misted them with it I started itching really bad. My skin became very red. I recognized the signs of an allergic reaction and took an anti-histamine and shower.

Needless to say, I can't give this a thorough review due to the fact that I can't use it.

Packaging:

This was packaged in a plastic bag from Eden in case of spills. After that, the bottle was shrink wrapped. It was a little difficult to remove, but not impossible.

The bottle itself is a mister so you can evenly coat a toy.

Ingredients:
This product has a fairly short ingredient list, but it is mostly chemicals. I figured since it was listed as hypo-allergenic that I would be safe using this.

Triclosan:
According to Wikipedia "Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent. It is a polychloro phenoxy phenol."
Allergy concerns are minimal with this product in most studies, but it is being reviewed by the FDA right now that it provides any benefit in consumer products.

Disodium Cacoamphodiacetate:
Wikipedia told me that "Disodium cocoamphodiacetate (DSCADA) is a synthetic amphoteric surfactant routinely used in personal care products" and that it shouldn't touch mucus membranes. Female genetilia is made of mucus membranes, so make sure you are thorough in washing this off after spraying. It can be an irritant to skin.

Sodium Trideceth Sulfates:
The website ewg.org told me that "Sodium Trideceth Sulfate is a sodium salt of sulfated ethoxylated Tridecyl Alcohol". It is a cleaning agent and doesn't have any major health concerns associated with it.

Propylene Glycol: This product is has a ton of uses but it is basically not irritating to the skin and is only minorly irritating to the eye.

Citric Acid: This is a naturally occurring weak acid. It is used in drinks to create a sour flavor and is used as a preservative. It is also used a cleaner. It's very safe for home and body use.

Phenoxyethanol: This is a bactericide and is an ingredient in many types of skin products. It can depress the nervous system and cause diarrhea and dehydration.

Purified Water: Water that is cleaned of trace elements.

I believe that my allergic reaction was to the Disodium Cacoamphodiacetate which does not seem especially hypo-allergenic to me after researching.

Final Thoughts:

Evolved disappointed me with this product. For something that is promised to be hypo-allergic, including a chemical that is a known irritant doesn't seem right to me. I can't reasonably recommend a product I can't use.
Follow-up commentary
In the name of science, I tried this again and had the same reaction. I have bought other toy cleaners that lacked that ingredient with no reaction. I am still really disappointed in Evolved for marketing this as hypoallergenic after researching the ingredients list.

    Interestingly, they appear to have changed the ingredients in this. I just read ImaGodiva's review & the triclosan and other ingredients have been replaced with more hypoallergenic, body-safe ones.
