Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd weren't always international soap mavens, delighting fashion-istas, value seekers, and environmentalists from New York to New Delhi. Many laundry cycles ago, they were young fashion enthusiasts, launching careers in one of the world's best-dressed cities. As Lindsey and Gwen invested in building their wardrobes, they were confronted with the frustration of maintaining them: replacing prematurely worn items and paying painful dry-cleaning bills. As graduates from Cornell University's Fiber Science, Textile and Apparel Management and Design program, they saw an opportunity to advance the world of fabric care.
