With no business and a very uncertain future, these women entrepreneurs asked themselves, “how can we help people feel safe while keeping businesses open, so others did not experience the same fate as us?”
With a focus on comprehensive health, In The ClearZone was launched.

Everything we do is rooted in safety and science. As a result, we have surrounded ourselves with scientific leaders who help us conduct rigorous safety tests to better understand how we can support our clients. In The ClearZone is supported by some of the top academic and private institutions in the country as well as leading individuals in their fields.
We are currently testing In The ClearZone’s method and products directly against COVID-19 with a level three laboratory.
