Agent Nateur’s artisan skin care and body care is hand crafted in Los Angeles by founder Jena Covello. Their signature stick deodorant made with only ten organic ingredients glides on with a light honeyed scent that keeps you fresh all day.
How did you come to set up Agent Nateur? What inspired you to create your brand?
I created Agent Nateur because of my health conditions with endometriosis and adenomyosis. Conventional antiperspirant is made with aluminum. Aluminum is an endocrine disrupter and mimics estrogen. Both endometriosis and adenomyosis are estrogen dominant issues. I began cooking the deodorant in my kitchen because I couldn’t find any natural deodorants that worked for me. I wanted the product to be equally effective as it is healthy and beautiful so I used my personal aesthetic and designed the logo, name and packaging myself.
How would you describe your brand philosophy?
Our philosophy is to create non-gmo, non-toxic skincare that is equally beautiful as it is effective. We manufacture everything ourselves.
Where do you source your ingredients from?
Mostly Europe, Switzerland and from small suppliers in the US. I split my time between LA and France. I usually formulate in Paris and visit my suppliers in Europe.
