I’m Kate Zills. I started MADE, because I was frustrated with the fact that it would take me thirty minutes to find one product I could use at the store. You are probably familiar with the struggle: reading ALL the ingredient labels, wondering why in the world you need a Chem degree to decipher the ingredients, researching each ingredient to get a better understanding, and getting furious as to why some of the ingredients are allowed on our shelves. If only shopping for safer products was easier…

Insert MADE. I hope to simplify this process and to become a trusted resource when it comes to cleaner products. I research every ingredient I allow in my store and try every product before it hits my site. I am an environmental engineer and have seen first-hand how damaging chemicals can be to us and to our environment. I recently laid engineering aside to chase after this dream of bringing you the best in safer + effective products. I hope you enjoy shopping with MADE and will follow along on my startup journey. Let me know how I can help!

Shop MADE. Live the simple life.
