American Provenance makes safe and effective personal care products by hand using all-natural ingredients. Founded by Kyle LaFond, a former middle school science teacher, the company originated from Kyle's concern over the questionable ingredients in the brands used by his students. Frustrated by the chemical clouds of product infiltrating the school hallways, Kyle challenged his students to create their own personal care items without harsh chemicals. After years of experiments and improvements to his own formulas, he launched American Provenance from an updated machine shed on his fourth-generation family farm. Today, the company makes all its own natural products from its southern Wisconsin facility near the original family farm where it all began.
