The origins of Sunlit Mountain are quite simple.

It all started with a headache. Then it turned into a business.

Headaches, watery eyes, nausea, rash, and dizziness have been my body’s usual response to mainstream hand soaps, shampoos, shaving creams, dishwashing liquids, laundry detergents, and other household cleaners.

So nearly two decades ago, I began making my own quality goods using raw, pure ingredients. It was an act of practicality and necessity.

For years, I was content with formulating my homemade products for myself, family, and friends. Easy peasy. A fun hobby of sorts.

Meanwhile, the outside world was shifting. Consumers started demanding that manufacturers stop using garbage ingredients. There was also a push for sustainable packaging.

Companies responded to customers’ needs for less toxic formulations by launching new so-called “green” product lines. But corporations failed miserably at utilizing truly eco-friendly plastic-free packaging.

So I solved the problem.

I created Sunlit Mountain to bring forth great goods for bath, body, beauty, and home… and to package those goods in simple eco-friendly packaging, 99% of which is plastic-free.

Simple. Sunny. Sustainable. That’s our business.

We’re fervent about sticking to our mission. For example, do you know of any other company aside from Sunlit Mountain who produces hand sanitizer in a glass bottle? I don’t.

This high level of commitment towards creating exceptional natural products in recyclable, reusable, and/or biodegradable packaging can be found in all our merchandise. Explore more by taking a trek to the Sunlit Mountain store.
