A Cleaner Collab: Meet Clea and Joanna from The Home Edit

Meet Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin, the women behind The Home Edit, a home-organizing service based in Nashville. We adore them for their concept—who doesn’t love a color-coded closet or an immaculate makeup drawer?—and their content, which is hilarious, relatable, covetably stylish, and totally addictive. (Just ask their almost-700K Instagram followers.)

However, making safer products is difficult and our rigorous testing process means that many of the synthetic and natural ingredients typically used in personal care products do not meet our standards for safety.
