Domestic Science: The Unscented Company in Canada

November 7, 2018

We’re all for broader offerings in the natural cleaning solutions market, so we were happy to recently discover The Unscented Company, based in Montreal. The brand was founded in 2016 by Anie Rouleau, a working mother of two who was struggling to find unscented, eco-friendly, and refillable cleaning supplies on the market. Her company’s top priority is that all products be completely unscented, without exception. And second, that each item be packaged in containers (such as recycled plastic or glass) that can be used again and again, and refilled from containers (such as cardboard) with smaller eco footprints. The company includes an Ingredients list for every offering and shares a helpful Table explaining what each ingredient is and its purpose in the product. Nothing is tested on animals, and at least 95 percent of the ingredients are supplied by family-run Canadian businesses.
