We are Aires and Jordan, and we’re the ones behind this business. We’re due to get married in 2020 (Covid-19 ruined that, hopefully 2021 now but that doesn't really matter as so many people lost their lives so we are just happy to be healthy), and our aim is simple: to build a business that can help give ourselves and our son, Zach, a better quality of life. However, the other reason is this: we want to eradicate the need for harmful ingredients in our hair!
Many ingredients are linked to having harmful long-term effects on our body, including but not limited to causing cancer. There’s no need for a beauty product to include such items; nature has more than enough in-store for us to stay happy, healthy, and safe. That’s why Mila and Max is all about trying to help people to find ways to help prevent hair loss and boost hair growth naturally.
We’re only involved in selling 100% natural products, which is something we’ll never deviate from. At the same time, we’ve built up a knowledge bank about important ingredients, such as essential oils, that you can learn about. This will be very useful for you if you want to know what you are using, and what the benefits can be. Again, be sure to look for our reference links so that you know exactly what is proven and what is claimed!
The reason we got into this industry, though, is to do with our dogs. We have two adorable dogs, a black Labrador and a Beagle. We were disgusted to find out that the Beagles are the breed of dog which is most commonly tested on by cosmetic firms. Many never even get to experience life in the ‘real’ world.
We wanted to find a way to get products to people which are naturally made and ethically tested. So, if you want to make sure you can care for your hair without ethical concerns, you can find what you need through Mila and Max!
Here is our co-founder, Mommy or should I say Jordan (sounds more professional) and our little mascot Zach on his birthday.
Here is our Beagle Mila who is always protesting against animal testing but decided to take the day off because it was her birthday.
This is our labrador Max or Maximus who loves sneaking up on our bed and it is now pretty much his bed.
Mila and Max is a company aimed at helping people who want to try and keep their hair care natural. Over the years, hair care has become a more important topic than many of us could ever have imagined. It’s one of the largest industries in the world today and has a huge amount of positive information out there. However, like with any large industry, there’s plenty of misinformation out there.
Mila and Max, then, is designed to help you try and find out information you can trust. By giving you access to reliable sources that can help you to understand why certain products might work, we make it easier to understand just what those ingredient lists mean. We also try and make clear as much as we can when a claim about a certain product needs more research. While we’ll always try and bring you information on the purported benefits of any hair care ingredient, we provide links to everything that can be proven.
Our aim is simple – to be open and honest with you about what hair care ingredients can do. At the same time, though, many claims are made without strong enough clinical backing. As such, we only include links to claims that can be proven through clinical research. Anything without a link is something that the industry is still doing further research into. Be sure to check back in future as we further solidify our list of resources, so that you know exactly what product can do, not what it might do.
The story behind Mila and Max, then, is one that we hope you can appreciate.
