In 2017, entrepreneurs, Jenessa Olson and Madison (Olson) De Sousa, launched a sustainable clothing-logistics company seeking to decrease the demand for fast fashion.In 2020, right as they were bringing their first major client to market, the COVID-19 global pandemic began, putting their business on hold. 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 don't experience the same fate as us?"
With a focus on comprehensive health, In The ClearZone was launched.

Having experienced the negative health effects of pollution personally while living in Uganda and India, and with their deep-rooted conviction to decrease waste, the In The ClearZone team is actively working to provide solutions that improve quality of life for people around the world. We have created our products and solution to positively impact individual's three pillars of personal health.

We believe that healthy environments are not a luxury, but a basic right. By using innovation to lead the way, we over-deliver on our products at affordable prices so every business can provide their clients and employees with a safe working space.
HydroClear particles are natural molecules that leave no negative impacts on the environment. This makes HydroClear a safe and healthy way to protect your clients and staff while reducing your environmental footprint.
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.
The Institute for Chemicals and Fuels from Alternative Resources, ICFAR, is a part of the Faculty of Engineering, Western University. ICFAR is helping oversee product testing and airflow modeling for In The ClearZone. Additionally, ClearZone has leaned on the tenured sustainable disinfecting experts with nearly 20 years of experience creating, testing, and commercializing sustainable, effective products.
ClearZone relies on the best researchers in the world for further third-party validation and built our technology on methods first discovered and tested by NASA for use on the International Space Station.
