No Tox Life
About No Tox Life
No Tox Life creates vegan bath, body and cleaning products. It was founded by Sandee Ferman on Earth Day of 2014, and it was created out of her passion to create safe alternatives for people who were tired of questionable ingredients found in drugstore products. A big part of the No Tox Life mission is helping educate consumers about natural ingredients and practices, and to that end, they have taught and hosted many workshops at the No Tox Life flagship store on topics like kombucha making, herbal tinctures and even making clothing dyed with avocado pits. Callie Milford is Sandee’s daughter and business partner. She directs the artistic arc of the company including photography and package design, as well as managing sales and marketing.
As a mother-daughter team, Sandee and Callie design and create all products. All products are made by hand in their Glassell Park, Los Angeles studio (the company is a small, but mighty team of 2 owners and 3 employees!). Pulling inspiration from California plants, herbs, landscapes and even local food when it comes to creating a new product, the ladies of No Tox Life use the highest quality ingredients. Some ingredients are sourced from local farms, including herbs grown in an urban farm ½ mile away. New product goals include expanding their plastic-free product line to help with the world plastic pollution problem. 91% of plastics aren’t recycled, and they are hoping to do their part for the planet.
The No Tox Life founders love creating in LA because they’re able to collaborate with other small companies, such as Pulp Pantry, a local entrepreneur who supplies them with organic juice pulp from local juice shops to incorporate into soaps. They believe natural products are a form of art you can bring into your home and use every day.
