Talima Davis, the mastermind behind Limegreen, sat down to chat with us about the benefits of using organic products, what she would use to clean up a house-wide muddy mess, and more. Read on for all the deets!
BettyConfidential: How did you become a maker of vegan home products?
Talima Davis: I became a maker of vegan home products based on a need I felt was missing in the home, baby, and garden arena. I felt like so many products that are labeled “natural” really aren’t natural at all. So I wanted a line that was really natural, something that was both safe for everyone in the home and with multiple ways to use.
BC: Can you tell us a little about the history of Limegreen? How did you hatch the idea for the company?
TD: Limegreen is inspired by my childhood in North Carolina and my grandmother Catherine, an award-winning gardener. I had been making room sprays and laundry detergent as a hobby since 2007, but after two close family and friends died of cancer and after my grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, I decided to leave my industry (I had been an Art Production Manager for eleven years) to pursue my hobby as a full time venture. I wanted my contribution to the world to be something good, even if it was just in a small way.
BC: What’s your background like? Had you ever dabbled in making making home or body products or in other types of design before creating Limegreen?
TD: My background is design; however, my mom likes to tell people about how I always used to use her lotions and perfumes to make “things.”
BC: Sounds like it payed off! Limegreen’s products are known for being completely vegan. What are the benefits of using vegan home products, as opposed to regular ol’ ones from Target or wherever?
TD: I think there is a huge benefit to using all-natural and organic products as opposed to some regular ones: You know exactly what is in the product. Limegreen’s products do not contain chemicals, sulfates, or anything you can’t pronounce!
