Our Story

Founder Walt Bader has been chemically sensitive his whole life, and learned at an early age the importance of checking ingredient labels. Recognizing that finding products that are both functional and chemically acceptable to him was a challenge, Walt created Lifekind® in 1997 – a mail-order brand dedicated to organic and naturally safer® household products. With transparency of ingredients being a foremost concern, Walt placed the first thorough consumer-oriented chemical glossary in the Lifekind catalog in 1998.

Today Lifekind's offering is broad and even includes certified organic mattresses and bedding. And with the internet being a dominant channel, what was once a catalog company exclusively, is now also online, ensuring quality and time-tested organic products are available to the now many educated and concerned consumers seeking to reduce their chemical exposure.

In 2022, Lifekind celebrated its 25th year in business! Thank you to all of our many customers who have supported us all of these years, and who continue to refer friends and family. In the internet age, we are proud to be a name you can trust.
