Home-care is more important than ever with the actual context and is now synonym to self-care. So it is no surprise that brands are adapting and developing new products by offering a different take on packaging (to appeal to younger customers), by choosing to partner with wellness brands (to add a therapeutic touch to everyday home-care chores), or by offering cleaner formulations (to meet demand for eco-conscious and less aggressive alternatives). Here are 5 house-care brands trying to disrupt the market.
Veles created the first-ever all-purpose household cleaner composed of 97 percent food waste, primarily coming from Google’s office in Manhattan.
