As consumers, it can be overwhelming to make conscious decisions about the types of companies we want to support.

We want to give our business to companies that create clean and effective products AND support our values.

But how do you know what to look for?

The beauty and textile industries are some of the hardest to navigate, as products are often loaded with chemicals, overproduction creates large amounts of waste, and many garment workers are underpaid and have poor working conditions.

So what can we do to select companies that not only produce clean products, but also promote chemical transparency, sustainability, and ethical practices?

In this episode of SHE, I answer that question with Lena Chao, the founder of Clean Circle. Together, they dig into everything you need to know about sustainability and transparency in the beauty industry.

Lena Chao founded Clean Circle, a sustainably minded skin and body care brand. She used her knowledge of the textile industry to create ethically made reusables made from high-quality, certified clean materials.

Hi, I'm Jordan.

I have a huge heart for helping other mamas (and future mamas to-be) naturally support their body, embrace their femininity, and make healthy swaps for their families in a way that works for them and glorifies God (zero perfection required)

My days are spent writing books, hosting the SHE podcast, sharing product recommendations, and creating resources rooted in biblical values to help you do just that.
