In 2006, faced with the decision to either switch to Chardonnay or develop a remedy to remove red wine stains from her teeth, Kimberly Walker, Founder of Borracha, crafted an all natural recipe to remove red wine stains from teeth while protecting the enamel from acids in wine. She enlisted the help of a world-renowned laboratory to turn the recipe into a first-of-its-kind formula, and in 2008, Wine Wipes were born.

Following the success of Wine Wipes, Pearly Wipes were crafted to remedy every day stains caused from coffee, tea, smoking and other stains while freshening breath.

Schmidt's Naturals was borne from the vision of natural product developer Jaime Schmidt in 2010 during the Maker Movement. With humble beginnings in a Portland, Oregon kitchen, entrepreneurship brought Schmidt's lifetime passion for innovative body care into focus. Motivated to make products that would benefit her family's health, and knowing that the natural deodorant offerings on the market were falling short of consumer expectations, Jaime made it her mission to change the way people think about deodorant.

To say Kiana loves coconuts would be an understatement. The Kopari co-founder practically grew up on the stuff while being raised on the beaches of Honolulu, Hawaii and spending summers living on a catamaran in Kauai with her Hawaiian surfing legend dad. While most kids spent school breaks at summer camp, Kiana used her spare time collecting wild coconuts from the jungle and using their contents to whip up amateur beauty concoctions. She realized early on that the natives of her tropical locale owed their gorgeous skin and hair to their stripped-down, simplified beauty routines—most of which included a whole lot of coconut oil.
