Founded in 2002, Green Beaver was born from a desire to offer natural and safe products accessible to consumers. Karen Clark and Alain Ménard combined their years of experience and knowledge as biochemists and microbiologists to offer an alternative to the many dangerous chemicals on the market. Discover the steps Green Beaver has taken and what we have accomplished over the years! 

Green Beaver, a human company.

Karen and Alain, alarmed by the number of harmful ingredients used to create cosmetic products, are convinced that a natural approach is possible. Faced with Alain’s sister’s breast cancer diagnosis and the birth of their son, the couple decided to put their expertise to good use and formulate an all-natural product line. This is how the Green Beaver brand that we all love, was born. A company that takes care of your skin while considering the environment. Loyalty, rigour, and reliability are among the key values and are present in the daily life of the company.

The pivotal years: The evolution of Green Beaver 

During the 2000s, Green Beaver took off, broadening its horizons, and formulating new products. The year of 2009 is marked by the achievement of important milestones for the company. It built its own construction site in Hawkesbury and officially received its Ecocert certification. In 2011, Green Beaver achieves a real breakthrough by developing the first Canadian organic mineral sunscreen with the support of the National Research Council. And over the following years, it diversifies its line to the delight of its community. Soaps, deodorants, toothpaste, you name it. 

A company that cares about its community. 

Green Beaver products are exclusively designed, developed, and tested in Canada. We carefully select the ingredients that make up our products and give priority to locally grown organic ingredients. We strive to use safe ingredients, relying on our expertise and research to create sustainable and reliable products.

We do not compromise on the quality and safety of our products. Gluten-free, vegan (except for our lip balms made from organic beeswax) and no animal testing are practiced on our range.

At the same time, Green Beaver is involved in educating and raising awareness among its consumers about the potential dangers of chemicals. Committed to making a positive impact in the world, Green Beaver is determined to emphasize the importance of reducing energy consumption and using healthy production methods whenever possible. 

Karen and Alain have been busy developing Green Beaver for 19 years now. Since its launch, the company has continued to innovate by creating effective products adapted to the needs of consumers. You can count on a great team at the service of your skin that selects the best for you and works to create a line that does not harm humans, animals, or the environment.
