Free Generation Naturals Founded by Angela Doyle :037

Angela Created Free Generation Naturals from the Desire to Have a Healthy Pregnancy and a Healthy Child

Motivated to have a healthy pregnancy, fourteen years ago Angela Doyle created her own deodorants and now has a growing line of Free Generation Naturals products.

Even having cancer as a teenager didn’t affect Angela’s awareness of the value of life as much as did becoming pregnant and having the responsibility of caring for another life.

In this interview Angela Doyle, shares her journey of surviving cancer, changing what she used on her body for a healthy pregnancy, and how what she experienced and learned influences her decisions of what to include (or not include) in her own products!

 

Watch and Listen as Angela shares her story:

  • Surviving mesothelioma as a teenager (often due to exposure to asbestos)
  • How she became more aware and researched what went on her body when she became pregnant
  • Feeling vulnerable and responsible for her growing family and their health

  • Where to go to find sound information on what is safe to use on and in the body

About Angela and Free Generation Naturals

Free Generation Naturals launched in August 2016 with the mission to provide a safe and effective natural deodorant option for people of all ages and stages of life. The founder, Angela Doyle, started her own natural deodorant journey 14 years ago when she was pregnant with her daughter, and considered what was going in and on her body that might affect both her and her daughter’s health. As a childhood cancer survivor, Angela was further motivated to provide healthy options for her entire family.
The deodorant formula has been through hundreds of iterations throughout the years, and the line has expanded to include a sensitive skin version in stick form and a probiotic deodorant cream that is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

Free Generation Naturals also offers a line of beeswax lip balms and will expand into bodycare products, including lotions and body scrubs, in late 2017. Learn more about the products, ingredients and company at www.FreeGenerationNaturals.com.
