Cloverdale Organics is owned and operated by Perryn Ford. Originally from Washington D.C., Perryn relocated to New York City in 2008 to pursue a secondary degree in Fashion Design from Parsons The New School For Design; and begin her career in the fashion industry. In 2011, she began to make a slow but steady transition to a healthier lifestyle that included making her own hair and skin products; discontinuing the use of harsh perms and other toxic hair products; becoming pescatarian and then vegetarian soon after. But in 2013, Perryn experienced a life changing event, when her father transitioned after an 8 year battle from multiple myeloma cancer. This loss set into motion a series of events leading to the creation of Cloverdale Organics.
In 2014, Perryn embarked on what would be her first of many international trips, traveling to France, London, and Italy. Not only did this trip reconnect her with her dad's spirit, but it ignited her deep passion for travel. In 2015 , she returned to France to live and work teaching English for 3 months. This trip abroad changed her life, prompting her examine her place in the world, and how she could add value using her skills, talents, and experiences. Upon returning from Europe, Perryn continued to make her at home skincare products and share them with her family and friends.
Perryn has continued to travel over the last several years to many different places. During her travels she noticed there was a void in the market for truly natural and organic travel sized personal care items. This prompted Perryn, to pivot and turn her already loved products into convenient travel size sets for busy people traveling and living life on the go! Since starting Cloverdale Organics in 2016, Perryn has transitioned into a plant loving vegan, traveling the world one country at a time with her Cloverdale Organics travel size set in tow.
