How it started...

Big dreams and healthy routines.

I started umanos out of my own frustration with toxic chemicals. Women alone, expose themselves to over 100 chemicals each day found in personal care products.

I felt the healthiest and most sustainable thing we could do was create everyday essentials that better care for people and the planet. Products that don't disrupt our hormones, and feel good to use.

For us, it's the little things that have the biggest impact. That's why we set out to elevate the little things and harness the power of our daily routines to champion healthy living for all.

What We Value

Obsessive Quality

We use high-performing premium plant-based ingredients and low impact materials that deliver an elevated experience with a lower environmental impact. Our products are nontoxic, effective, cruelty-free, and made without SLS, SLES, DEA, PEGs, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances or dyes, silicones, PEGs, or more than 1300 other suspect ingredients found in most products.

Thoughtful Design

Featuring beautiful sustainable design details and refillable bottles, our hair and body essentials were made with the modern conscious consumer in mind.

Sustainable Practices

For us, sustainability is not just about the goop in the bottle or the packaging, it's about all aspects of our business. From where we make our products, to the ingredients we source, to the partners we work, to how we give back. We chase sustainability from every angle. It is a pursuit we know will never end. We learn and improve every day because it's good for the people and places we love, it's good for business, and it's necessary for sticking around for a good long time.

Giving Back

Our goal since day one has been to help people live happy, healthy lives. So with every purchase you make, we give back 1% toward helping end the global water crisis so that every human has access to clean, safe, accessible water. #washitforward
