Clean Republic:


We had already received an EPA endorsement of our Disinfectant + Sanitizer, for use against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, as well as MRSA, HIV, and Norovirus.

When commercial cleaning companies wanted the same product that worked for hospitals, we delivered.
When homes and families wanted Clean Republic, we created a Home Strength All Purpose Cleaner for everyday use, On-the-Go formula, and Hand Cleanser.

Nokware Skincare:

Our founder’s great-grandmother was a beneficiary of generations of African women who passed on the wisdom of ages – how to make skincare products using traditional African herbs and oils.

Today, Nokware is a modern-day, African skincare brand. Inspired by Grandma’s wisdom, our goal is to promote the use of African herbs, oils and plants, which heal and protect us and can be found in different parts of Africa.

This fusion of traditional and modern-day knowledge is a part of our generational legacy, and it is a privilege to be able to share that heritage with the rest of the world.

We love their Shea butter!

Urban Hydration

About Urban Hydration:
Always having dry skin and dry hair led to multiple trips to the doctor’s office for Psyche & Vontoba. One day, while helping a local nonprofit raise money selling candles and spa gift baskets, Psyche challenged them to create products she could actually use to make her beauty routine more natural, more fun, healthier, and more affordable.

After introducing the collection to friends, family, and their own children, the Terry’s were inspired to share their love for clean beauty across the nation.

Today, millions of Urban Hydration products are sold in more than 7,000 retail doors across the nation. What’s fun and rewarding for Psyche & Vontoba is that they continue to give back to charity by making a donation for every product they sell! In 2018, Urban Hydration dedicated its first clean water drinking well to 300 Kenyan school children.

Hampton Road Designs:

Vintage Luxury, reimagined!

So, how did Hampton Road Designs begin? Quite simply, really….

In 2016, I was enjoying Christmas with my family and we began to chat over champagne about the year before and the year ahead. The year before was a particularly tough one, as we had lost our sweet father to cancer. This meant that my mom would need to sell the family home on Hampton Road in Austin, Texas because it was too much house for her to live in alone.

After some more champagne, sad reflection gave way to sunnier thoughts about the year ahead. Invariably, these thoughts involved Texas Longhorn Football. I had just learned that Texas was implementing a Clear Bag Policy. My brother, Jack, joked “How are you going to accessorize for gameday with a clear bag?” Fueled by champagne, I boasted “I guess I’ll have to make one pretty enough to qualify as an accessory.” The following morning, my husband Bruce, woke me with a Cheshire-Cat grin and some Alka Selzer and said, “I’ve done some research on clear bag policies and …..”

The rest is history.


Currently we are obsessed with the Gold Vinyl Annie Clear Purse!

We also heard from our very own production coordinator, Abner Vargas, who is a film maker!

Abner spoke to us about his latest short film project Red Drops which is airing on August 15th Live!

About Abner:
Abner is a 24 year-old Mexican-American artist born in Mexico and raised in both Mexico and the United States. He graduated from University of California – San Diego with a Bachelor’s in Visual Arts – Media. He has worked in many short film projects, 48 Hour Film Festivals, marketing videos, and video editing projects.

As a filmmaker, Abner likes to non linear narrative films that explore concepts like sexuality, human connection, and mental illness. Pleasure and desire are present as a theme in one of his works with sexually fluid characters describing the complexity of sexual identity. He finds inspiration from a variety of artists such as Sam Esmail, Gaspar Noe, and Ari Aster. Abner finds ways to distort the straight and linear narrative one is used to seeing in most films by experimenting with mental spaces and states that mix with the reality of each character.

As a passive photographer, he explores the surrealism and disorientation that a double exposed image creates. He tries to achieve a meaning by editing two or more images together in order to recreate a new feeling between the two. He also explores regular photography in an aesthetic way.

We talk to from Patty Zamora from Salvation Army San Diego about her rehabilitation Center and how they can help the ones you love!

The San Diego Adult Rehabilitation Center has space for 51 men and 16 women currently!

They offer a 6-12 month, residential, holistic, faith based, 12-step, social model program with a work therapy component. Classes, group and individual counseling, 12-step meetings and spiritual growth prepares them to re-enter society and return to gainful employment.

Many graduates, who have completed their program, have been successfully reunited with their families and resume a normal life. Opportunities to continue in the program are available up to 2 years.
