Berwick, Maine, USA
Today, Wayward Chickadee are two and a half in their small business: Sébastien who draws on his experience from leading a Swiss skincare company to create products; Jim who keeps the online store running and handles design and packaging; and little Abigaël who motivates us to return to a more simple, healthier time.
Their journey of building Wayward Chickadee all started with their move to Maine, a beautiful place nestled between the mountains and the ocean, near forests and lakes. Surrounded by this wondrous nature, Sébastien and Jim were motivated to change the way they shopped. And, they were inspired to create their own natural products that respect the nature they live in. Their brand provides products made with the best ingredients that nature has to offer, resulting in a clean alternative to mass-produced, chemically-filled products. After friends and family tried their creations and loved them, their small business was born!
The adventurous “Wayward” name resulted from their travels around the world before settling in Maine. The “Chickadee” is emblematic of their adopted State of Maine and their “ready to fly” optimistic attitude. And thus, “Wayward Chickadee” was established!
Little by little, they are expanding their selection by researching and formulating products that have one thing in common: simplicity. Using as few ingredients as possible, all natural, and safe for you and the environment. They always skip using synthetic fragrances, palm oil, and chemical preservatives and concentrate on what nature has to offer - like using essential oils for their scent and numerous beneficial properties. Wayward Chickadee is simply nature reimagined.
