New Albany Resident Launches Eco-Friendly Brand

A veteran product and brand developer and New Albany resident, Carol Mehas, has announced the debut of Arbour Products, a new collection of commercial grade cleaning products formulated with safe, plant-based, non-toxic ingredients. Already used by pro-sports teams, hospitals, restaurants, schools, and other corporate, civic and commercial institutions, the collection is now available directly to consumers.

Mehas was inspired to create the brand during the Covid-19 pandemic while seeking products that were safe for her family and dog. “No one should have to choose between strong cleaning products and safety,” said Mehas. The Arbour co-founder has worked for global leaders including L’Oreal, Sephora, and Estée Lauder. “At the heart of Arbour are highly effective, environmentally and ethically conscious cleaning solutions that everyone will feel good about using,” Mehas said.

Arbour’s proprietary formulations, from smarter stain-removers to non-toxic odor removers and hand wash made from sustainably sourced soapbark, are derived from clean, plant-based ingredients and bio-surfactants. The formulations are greywater-safe, free of bleach, alcohol, phosphates, dyes, VOCs and parabens for safe and biodegradable run-off. The daily essentials in the arbour product line are cruelty-free and made in the U.S. with sustainable production and distribution processes to reduce waste and pollution.
