We’ve talked a lot about skincare on the podcast, but we haven’t talked about cleaning, yet. All that changes today!
I can’t think of a better person to have on the podcast to talk about non-toxic cleaning and navigating the cleaning aisle than the co-founder of Branch Basics, Allison. What I love about Branch Basics is their commitment to education that goes beyond selling a cleaning product.
Today, on the podcast, Allison shares:
- her story, which all started with a diagnosis of PCOS
- how she reversed her PCOS
- how Branch Basics came to be
- what the early days of building Branch Basics looked like
- the major setback the company faced, which led to pulling their cleaning concentrate from the market
- how to make the switch to non-toxic cleaners
- if there’s regulation in the cleaning industry when it comes to ingredients and marketing labels
