Starting with room sprays, the company is planning to release more products within their line, candles and diffusers just to name a few.
As students in the INCubatorEDU entrepreneurship program within their high school, these students were able to create an idea through problem identification, customer research, and product prototyping. They were able to identify a set problem and work to solve it as a team. Commah identified the amount of chemicals in common household products as a problem, and was able to address the problem by creating plant-based products with support from their mentor, Rick Kolstad from WISNET.
