Hello friends, it’s Jade again!
In honor of National Mom & Pop Business Owner’s Day on March 29th of this month, we wanted to say THANK YOU, for believing in us, our products, and helping us build our dream. We as parents, want nothing but the very best for our children, and that was how Stinkbug Naturals was born. We were thrilled when we received a local producer loan from WholeFoods, and we used that loan to obtain Non-GMO project verification on our line of deodorants. We are so thankful for the relationships we have made with the Whole Foods Market team, and we are so proud to say that we are one of very few NON-GMO project verified deodorants on the market to this day, 6 years later. We want to introduce chemical free living from our home to yours, and we want everybody and every mom-to-be to have the option to use a product that’s absolutely non-toxic, and all natural.
We wanted every pair of little hands to be able to use a hand cleaner that’s alcohol free, and all natural, because after all, those little ones put everything in their mouths! So, believe me when I say this, we want your children to be able to benefit from the power of essential oils to keep their hands naturally clean without any Alcohol, Triclosan, and Benzalkonium Chloride. All of our ingredients were chosen for all their wonderful properties with the goal of improving overall health WITHOUT killing the good bacteria.
Our hand cleaners come in both a spray and a gel, available in lavender, citrus, and citrus spice, and is safe for even the littlest hands!
Essential oils offer many benefits and are effective against harmful organisms. Here is the list of essential oils we like to use in our products and their benefits:
