The Valley Green Story
Shortly after 9/11, Cindy Lawson DeVore and her family left suburban-city-living near Washington, D.C. and moved to the beautiful Northern Virginia countryside. They indulged their desire to be more self-sustaining and began growing their own vegetables, beekeeping, raising chickens and enjoying life on a small hobby farm. After purchasing a home soap-making kit, Cindy began experimenting in her farmhouse kitchen with natural soap recipes using garden- and locally-sourced botanicals and honey. She sold the soaps at local events and stores and found that they were a huge hit.
Cindy studied reports on commonly used chemicals in personal care products and their alarming effects on the human body and the environment. Ultimately, her findings led to the creation of Valley Green Naturals, a company formed to produce body-safe and eco-friendly natural products.
At Valley Green, the raw honey we use in our skin care products is sourced from our own bee hives, as well as neighboring apiaries in Rappahannock County. Since the company’s launch in the Fall of 2009, the Valley Green Naturals product line has grown beyond soaps and now boasts over two dozen skin, hair and body care products that are free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens and petrochemicals.
A company that operates with a sense of social and ecological purpose, Valley Green Naturals is a financial contributor to local and international poverty alleviation organizations. The company also supports environmental groups and organizations working to save the world's honey bees.
Valley Green Naturals products are found in natural and gourmet grocery stores, independent health food stores, and online from our web site store.
