The Valley Green Naturals Story

Shortly after 9/11, we left suburban-city-living near Washington, D.C. and moved to the beautiful Northern Virginia countryside. We indulged our desire to be more self-sustaining and began growing our own vegetables, raising chickens and enjoying life on a small hobby farm. After Art purchased a home soap-making kit, we began experimenting in our farmhouse kitchen with natural soap recipes using garden- and locally-sourced botanicals and honey.  We sold the soaps locally and found that they were a huge hit.

Cindy studied reports on commonly used chemicals in personal care products and their alarming effects on the human body and the environment. Ultimately, her findings led to the creation of Valley Green Naturals, a company we formed to produce body-safe and eco-friendly natural products.

Valley Green Naturals sources its ingredients locally from Virginia’s Piedmont and the Valley Green Farm whenever possible, and we also support organic farming and Fair Trade suppliers on a global basis. Since the company’s launch in the Fall of 2009, the Valley Green Naturals product line has grown beyond soaps and now boasts over 30 skin, hair and body care products that are free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens and petrochemicals.

A company that operates with a sense of social and ecological purpose, Valley Green Naturals is a financial contributor to local and international poverty alleviation organizations. The company also supports staff volunteerism. Employees receive up to 40 hours per year of paid time off for service work in the community or surrounding areas, stretching from the Blue Ridge Mountains to Washington, D.C.
