Why the Frog?
Frogs absorb pollutants through their thin, sensitive skin, making them the first species to react to negative changes in the environment. They're an indicator species.
The Purple Frog is a symbol of mindfulness. Being mindful of toxins in our surroundings because similar to frogs, we absorb chemicals into our skin and inhale them into our lungs every day. But unlike frogs, we don’t always immediately recognize their detrimental effects.
Not all hand sanitizers are created equal and some contain harsh chemicals like formaldehyde and other mystery ingredients that may be endangering your health.
We do hand sanitizers naturally with plant-based ingredients and essential oils. No surprise chemicals or toxins. Better for your skin and better for your health.
Our mission to promote chemical mindfulness started with co-founder, Andrew Miller.
Andrew grew-up in Hagersville, Ontario, Canada, the site of the notorious Hagersville tire fire, which burned for 17 days and released countless toxins into the air and water table. As a child, he saw his community suffer from health issues caused by the pollution. And after overcoming cancer, he began paying close attention to the toxins in our ecosystem.
Andrew’s story is the inspiration behind Purple Frog. We believe that our health is a reflection of the greater health of our environment.
