A Bit About Us
Welcome! If you are searching for products that you can feel good about using in your household and sharing with family and friends, you've come to the right place! I started Pro-nounce Co with the intention of making my own household a chem-free zone after my partner was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Naturally, I wanted to control whatever I could to improve her outcome, so I dove head-first into research.
One of my first shocking discoveries was the insane amount of toxic, carcinogenic chemicals in products that we use every day! This includes toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, face creams, lotions, body washes, dish soap, disinfecting sprays, air fresheners, perfume, and deodorant...for starters. "Organic" and "non-GMO" began to stick out to me on labels as I also learned about the benefits of eating organically grown foods and using organic personal hygiene products.
I made lists of ingredients to watch out for (the "worst offenders"), and was frustrated to find that products lacking these chemicals were A.) very hard to come by and B.) typically more expensive than their chemical laden counterparts.
Next, I began researching DIY alternatives. Before I knew it, our spare bedroom was converted into my carcinogenic-free laboratory- full of "pronounceable" ingredients for my homemade products. I use as many organic ingredients as I can find, and EVERYTHING is cruelty free, vegan, and gluten-free.
