Green tidings: the woman behind the company

As a lifelong resident of Southern California, Jenny Benford has always been passionate about holistic health and the environment. 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. With a background in law and excellent research skills, she put those skills to work, 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.  She would never test on animals, however she does test on her two small children.  She also enjoys gardening, reading, listening to music, hiking, travelling, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.
