About the Founder

Catherine Hix

As I searched for organic and biodegradable products I began to play with making my own. It all began with laundry soap. With 5 in our family plus two large dogs we would plow through the laundry and it just seemed to smell like a cover up with perfume detergent. After many batches we came up with a simple yet effective recipe for amazing soap. Your laundry will smell fresher be cleaner without all the chemicals and fake perfumes.
Again with kids and dogs we spend lots of money on cleaning products that are chemical free. I was determined to develop a surface cleaner and wood floor cleaner that would not be harmful for my family.

These are just a few ideas. Our product line is continuing to expand and develop. We hope you and your family will enjoy using our products in your journey to rid your environment of harmful toxins!

So where’s the “i” in kind?
Well, it’s just easier to be kind if our reasons don’t revolve around me, myself and “I.”
