The CRUNCHY CHEMIST Story
Blake & Vanessa Arthur
Blake “The Crunchy Chemist” started his aerospace career with a bang. He solved a 15+ year standing problem in just 2 weeks, saving Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company $310 million, and specialized in next-generation nanotechnologies. Although it was fun to play in a fancy nanotech lab, he and his wife, Vanessa, dreamed of creating a more significant and personal impact in the world.
The dream was simple: Blake would use all-natural, food grade ingredients as his “chemical reagents” to create game-changing natural products that could outperform the synthetic stuff. Then Blake and Vanessa would run the company together.
Armed with nothing but the dream, Blake quit his job, they sold their house, and their whole family lived out of their RV. They made their Castile Soap in campsites, front yards, friends’ kitchens—wherever they could stay for a bit. Though times were challenging, the remarkable feedback from their customers continually reassured them that the dream was manifesting.
That dream is Crunchy Chemist LLC.
