In 2015, Mona’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. Mona learned that many body care products, home cleaning products, and plastic storage containers are made with chemicals that are hormone disruptors. She made a choice to eliminate many products from her home and to use safer, natural and chemical-free products. Mona began making and modifying deodorant recipes for her own use. Soon, friends asked for the products, and it was then that Mona Moon Naturals was born.
