Sunscreen, Antiperspirant, Personal Care – Why Choosing Natural Creates So Much Impact with The Green Beaver Company’s Alain Ménard
Play • 48 min

In this episode, we explore why The Green Beaver Company's founders Alain Ménard, a microbiologist, and his wife Karen, a biochemist, left their careers in the pharmaceutical and pesticide industries after deciding to start a family and being sidelined by a surprising diagnosis. We do a deep dive into natural and conventional sunscreens, antiperspirants and toothpaste, learn what the differences are, learn why there have been recalls and what the health impacts of our choices may be. And discover why after 20 years of revolutionizing the industry and engaging with his customers, Alain feels so hopeful for our future.
