Kathi Fischer and Michelle Regel with the CleanO2 CarbinX unit
The Canadian Cosmetic Cluster would like to shine a spotlight on this amazing Canadian company that combines innovation and sustainability. Clean O2 develops technology to produce an ingredient that is essential for soap. We share the interview we had with Kathi Fischer and Michelle Regel as they tell us more about Clean O2.
1. Tell us a little bit more about your cosmetic business. What makes it unique?
Every CleanO2 soap product is made with carbon that would otherwise have been released into the atmosphere if not captured by our CarbinX™ units and turned into amazing soap products that are great for your body, the community, and the environment. Proceeds from the sale of CleanO2 soap products support the deployment of more CarbinX™ units around the world to capture more carbon and reduce the impact on our climate.
2. What products do you specialize in?
The Canadian Cosmetic Cluster had the pleasure of speaking with Alejandro Franco of Kaffe Bueno. Alejandro is an inspiring individual who is one of the co-founders of Kaffe Bueno. We ask him to share his story and vision to making the world a better place through upcycled ingredients.
