Green Tidings: The Woman Behind the Company

A lifelong resident of Southern California, Jenny Benford has always been passionate about holistic health and the environment. Jenny lost her sister to cancer when she was 19 years old, which changed her life forever. She studied natural health and nutrition as a means of preventative health.  She became her circle's "expert" in natural remedies.  

When she became pregnant with her first child, she realized how important it was to not only eat clean, but to use clean body products, too. She began identifying the ingredients in skin care products that are safe and effective, and those that are not.

She then decided to create a deodorant that was safe enough for her then-nursing body and baby,  plant-based, free of aluminum, chemicals, and toxins, while still being effective.

Jenny is continually expanding the Green Tidings product line, most recently with new natural deodorant scents.  She also enjoys painting, writing, gardening, reading, listening to music, travelling, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.  She lives in Southern California with her husband and two small children.
