Founder Jana Blankenship started her personal care product company Captain Blankenship in 2009 with a passion for organic and responsibly sourced ingredients. Drawing inspiration from her own experience with chemical sensitivity, Jana (pronounced like Yana) developed an appreciation for effective natural ingredients in products. She found, with diligence and determination, it was possible to formulate efficacious hair care while still being gentle on humans and the environment. If you think that sounds like a good match for MADE SAFE – it is!
