The Good Hippie began in 2011 as the brainchild of its Founder, who was a licensed massage therapist. Being (literally) up to her elbows in lotion all day, she conducted extensive research and found that most products contained a shocking amount of ingredients deemed toxic, even by lenient cosmetic industry standards. She began creating TGH’s signature body oil after her skin was being negatively affected by commercial lotions and oils in her daily work. She continued expanding her line in hopes of replacing unhealthy, big-brand products that are somehow widely considered acceptable. TGH is tirelessly devoted to developing products around holistic ideals regarding ethically sourced materials, clean production, vegan ingredients, and sustainable materials.
Current owner Emily McNabb, who is a close friend of the Founder, is a retired professional dancer and a certified yoga instructor. She has always held natural, holistic approaches to health in tandem with her active lifestyle, and has been an advocate for TGH since its inception. Emily took over the company from the Founder so that TGH could continue on “in the family.” Emily remains faithful to the original credo of creating healthy products that are sourced ethically and sustainably.
TGH is inspired by creating products that will replace the big-brand products around the globe, and hopes to encourage other companies to adopt better, healthier practices.
