Take control of your family's wellness

Grounded was founded in 2015 by Megan Root. After the birth of her first child, she was overwhelmed learning about the volume of chemicals in our modern life and their impact on our health. Nairobi didn’t have an economical non-toxic home cleaning option, so she developed a line of products herself, using Kenyan ingredients.


Buy Kenya, Build Kenya

In 2019, Megan grew the team include her sister Alison as General Manager, and a cohort of engineers to increase production and refine products. Grounded employs a team of local soapmakers, including University of Nairobi graduate Ivy Sakwa as our production manager. In 2020, Grounded moved to an expanded production facility in Kikuyu to increase production. Grounded is proudly women-run, and supports the #BuyKenyaBuildKenya mission.

Let Grounded bring the new clean to your home.
