The most common question I get asked is how I got started in making body care items. The answer to that question is pretty simple - I had to. My son Rylan was born 2011 and came out sick and stayed sick for some time. We eventually discovered that he was allergic to corn and all corn derivatives which we had no idea meant almost the entire world. After discovering the allergy in Rylan we learned my husband had the same one (he had spent the last 25 years with very poor health).
In the process of trying to find a deodorant that did not make him sick I decided that it was time to learn how to make one with safe for us ingredients that would not cause a reaction. My first product that I ever created was the Citrus Breeze Deodorant and from there it took off. Family members started to ask for deodorants and that is how the business was born. The second product I ever created was Little Boo's rub to help Rylan through cold and flu season. Since that time every product that has been created has either been for a need for someone in the family or a request from a customer who was having problems finding something that did not make them sick.
I usually do not look at Little One Naturals as a business but rather as a passion. I love working with various ingredients to make new items and love it even more when they actually work. I try to put this passion and love into everything that I create!
