OUR STORY

I launched The Unscented Company in 2016, a complete line of unscented home and body care on two founding principles. Firstly, we redefine the notion of clean by offering exclusively unscented all natural products. We believe powerful cleaning can be free of fragrances and we could all be better for it. Secondly, we design our packaging for conscious living by allowing our customers the ability to refill their bottles either at home or in-store. A significant reduction of our collective plastic footprint.

Our commitment goes beyond products and packaging. We are a Certified B Corporation a growing community of more than 2000 companies working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business. We aspire to meet the highest standards of verified performance, transparency, and accountability, taking into account workers, our local community and the environment.


Start fresh.

I have the opportunity to work directly with an ecosystem of creative independent collaborators. They inspire and amaze me project after project we work on.

What do you like the most about your job?

My architecture background and my in-depth knowledge in sustainability and waste management have always allowed me to see the big picture in business. Ever since I joined the TUC team, I once again feel that I contribute to a bigger cause, building the business of the future while having a positive and immediate impact on the environment and the society. 

What are two things that excite you in life?

It’s all about Real Madrid Football Club, where it goes beyond the game plan: the royalty of the crown, the winning mentality, and the ‘‘never surrender’’ attitude. I was born to be a Madridista, HALA MADRID !

Darinka Alvarado

What do you like the most about your job?

The fact that we produce and sell products that I truly believe in and that are environmentally friendly. I'm always proud to say that I work for The Unscented Company and always excited to share our mission with the people around me. 

What are two things that excite you in life?

Waking up early to watch the sunrise, going to the gym and trying new restaurants, especially for brunch!

Caroline Chouinard

Sales Director + Distribution

What do you like the most about your job?

Looking forward to go to work every day alongside a dynamic, genuine and motivated team. Knowing that we all contribute, with our clients and associates, to a global movement consisting of changing our consumption habits. Being part of a company based in Montréal that strives to work locally and make a Quebec company shine way beyond our borders!

What are two things that excite you in life?

1. Mountains!!! I love hiking, downhill skiing and skimo (that’s actually my new passion). I really enjoy climbing mountains and admiring the view from the top, no matter the season. Smells, colors, vegetation… everything is always so beautiful! I share this passion with my whole family, including Ella (my dog)!

2. All types of dance: contemporary, classical, hip-hop, jazz, tango, folk, everything!! I love Danse Danse, because it always makes me get out of my comfort zone and discover new choreographers from here and abroad. I am always deeply moved when I see dancers pushing back their limits, sharing their emotions with us, telling us a story or delivering a message of some sort.

Pier-Anne Rouleau

Community + Marketing Project Manager

What do you like most about your job?
Having the opportunity to meet people who share the same values as me and who are passionate about what they do. It's energizing to collaborate with ambassadors, influencers, and professionals who care about social and environmental responsibility. I am beyond thrilled to help grow this family and find more ways to communicate the beautiful TUC values.

What are two things that excite you in life?
So many things... I would say that I'm passionate about people and the outdoors. For me, there's nothing better than a weekend spent enjoying the outdoors with friends, whether it's skiing, biking, or hiking. Otherwise, I'm fascinated by entrepreneurs who build businesses differently. It's amazing how much is possible!

Alexandra Lamy

Customer Service Manager

What do you like the most about your job?

My favorite part about my job is being able to work with passionate people who believe in the company's values and really want to make a difference in the world.

What are two things that excite you in life?

I love finding objects and treasures in thrift stores and antique shops and giving them a second life by upcycling them to my liking.

I also love fashion and movies because they are both art forms that allow to say a lot about society and current issues, while always finding a way to bring out the beauty in them.

Agathe Thierry

R&D Director

What do you like the most about your job?

I really enjoy working with colleagues who share the same values as me, namely respect for the environment and for people. We all work with the common goal of offering quality products that produce as little waste as possible. We are part of the solution, and it's very gratifying!

In research and development, I like the scientific aspect that allows me to create products in the laboratory, but I also like the sensory aspect used every time we test our products and put ourselves in the shoes of our consumers to offer them the best experience possible.

What are two things that excite you in life? 

First of all, my family; I am a mom since early 2021, and sharing my ecological values with my son is very important to me. At home, it's cloth diapers, vegetable garden/farm baskets and bulk purchases. My 15-month-old son already knows where the recycling bin is at home! We like to find practical, eco friendly items and talk about it with our friends.

Next, I would say cats! They are, and have always been, an essential part of my life. I volunteered at a shelter in Montréal for several years, and I am proud to have helped hundreds of cats get adopted by loving families. There is still a lot to be done to improve the living conditions of most of these animals in Quebec, but every gesture counts, just like for the environment. 😉

Muriel Abraham

Financial Manager

What do you like the most about your job?

I love working for a company that always strives to do better and does so with a positive approach. As a consumer, I want a company to meet me where I am in my sustainability journey and help me find new ideas without judgment or guilt. How great is it to find a company that also has that as a core value? 

 

What is the most fun for me is getting to look under the hood and make sure everything is working smoothly. Plus, I get to work with a dynamite team that is always open to look for a better way to do things.

What are two things that excite you in life? 

When I was younger, I was all about the movies. Escaping the world by visiting other worlds, if only for a couple of hours. But I have learned to stop and smell the flowers, and to look at birds, and the skyline. There is so much around us to admire and be thankful for. Tasting food grown in the garden planted on my front lawn, catching up with old friends and family and slowly replacing things in my life with more sustainable options. The cup in the photo is a symbol of one of those steps. One of my first steps in fact was to consciously refuse disposable coffee cups and have one of my own at my desk.

Marc-André Duguay

Shipping

What do you like the most about your job?

Having lived in this area all my life, I find it nice to be able to walk or ride an electric scooter to work. Not only does it create much less pollution than a car, but it also allows me to get to work in less than 10 minutes, which I really enjoy! I like the location of the company because I can eat outside with a view on the water and breathe the fresh air.

What are two things that excite you in life? 

I like to take evening walks with friends or family to enjoy the nice weather and talk about anything and everything with them. Or riding my electric scooter or bike on the bike path near the water and stopping somewhere, no matter where, simply to enjoy the view.

By duller weather, I like to stay home, watch a movie or play games on my console with my friends. I can spend entire evenings playing with them, laughing so hard I cry!

What do you like the most about your job?

What I like the most about my job is the people I work with, and the feeling of making a difference. To be able to go to work every morning excited, and with a positive mindset, is truly a privilege.

What are two things that excite you in life? 

I'm passionate about helping people, whether it be directly or indirectly. I believe that helping the people closest to you and your community is what life is really all about.

Another thing would be self-improvement. To be able to learn new things every day and to apply them to my daily life is something that makes every day unique and different.

Patch

R&D, Pet Care

What do you like the best about your everyday life?

I just LOVE pasta! Mostly the kind with bolognese sauce, made by my dad, Steven. At night, I love cuddling up to my mom Anie’s feet when we watch movies or documentaries. Waking my older brother, Henri-William, up every morning is also one of my favourite things ever! I make sure to jump on his bed and give him loads of kisses.

One of my favourite things ever is my rubber KONG frisbee! I can catch it mid-air and close to 200 feet away! Trust me, I have pictures to prove it! I also have my plush toys, squeaky squirrel, squid and scooby doo, that I love to carry around and play with.

Finally, my daily long walks with my best friend Wanda, are also one of my favourite hobbies! 

What are two things that excite you in life?

Every morning before work, I just can’t wait to go on my daily run with dad, which starts my day on the right foot (paw). 

Like my TUC family, I am also a huge fan of nature. Going out in the woods for long walks, especially in the eastern townships, brings me lots of joy! Sometimes, I even have the chance to run around with my deer friends!
