The great thing about using their products is that they actually provide a deep clean without containing any harsh ingredients—which is very different than commercial brand cleaning supplies and personal care items. How Mrs. Meyer’s got started Inspired by top-shelf European cleaning products in elegant packaging, Monica Nassif launched Caldera in 2000. A line of luxurious yet healthy aromatherapeutic household cleaners, it was a minor hit right away. The main thing holding Caldrea back from being a huge sensation was the admittedly high price point. For context, bottles of Caldrea dish soap sell for around 8-10 dollars, which is outside the price range for most people. With the guidance from her mother, Thelma Meyer, Monica was encouraged to continue making aromatherapeutic non-toxic cleaning products. One thing that needed to be fixed, however, was the price point. She was told she needed to make her products more affordable without sacrificing quality, and so she did. Almost immediately, the company found it’s footing and developed a large following. Soon after they rebranded from Caldera to Mrs. Meyer’s, in dedication to her mother (Thelma Meyer) who gave her the most helpful advice. Not long after, SC Johnson came calling and acquired them for an undisclosed amount, but that doesn’t mean their products or values have changed in anyway. With their new nationwide distribution in place, Mrs. Meyer’s was able to sell across the country and their company has only grown brighter and shows no sign of dimming.
