The Journey of Mamaeaerth
According to the Mamaeaerth founder and the company’s official website, the idea to start the baby care brand was initiated when Varun and Ghazal were expecting their first child.
The couple was looking for safe methods to deal with morning sickness, but they were shocked when they learned that there’s no way other than pills.
After nine months, when their baby was born, they started looking for baby care products. It was at this time when they discovered that most of the baby care items on the market had toxins, which weren’t safe for kids. It was the time when Varun and Ghazal thought of starting Mamaeaerth.
At Mamaeaerth, they produce toxin-free, mom-friendly, baby-friendly, and certified products.
As per the company’s founders, their aim is to understand and resolve the issues of new or upcoming parents.
Today, Mamaeaerth has grown to become MADE SAFE™ Certified-brand whose products go through strict test standards.
Its products are a big reason behind the Mamaeaerth’s net worth of $1.2 billion.
