THE QLEAN STORY
My family chose to live an alternative, organic way of life when I was very young. They built a mud brick house, lived off the grid, grew crops, made our clothes and built our furniture. It was definitely unconventional but in hindsight the happiest childhood anyone could ask for. When my sister Emma developed eczema mum turned to the natural products available. When they didin't work however she announced to us one night that she would develop her own balm to help her. This didn't surprise us. They were makers and she was a nurse and could use her clinical knowledge in formulation. 2 years later, after much reading and trial and error, she succeeded in making a balm using only plants and healing oils that finally helped alleviate Emma's eczema symptoms.
I took this first balm to our local market in country Victoria almost 20 years ago. Despite my hand written signs, this was to be the launching pad for a strong customer demand for chemical free products to remedy their sensitive skin concerns.
