About the Creator
My name is Naomi Parsons, I am the woman behind the eco crayons brand. I am a mum, a teacher, a business owner and a creative soul. My vision for 100% plant based and truly non-toxic crayons and art mediums was born whilst watching my daughter, Arleena, chew on crayons and other drawing tools from a young age, often with synthetic colours leeching, staining her skin and causing irritation. This was the birth of eco crayons. I began researching what was in commercial non-toxic art products. The use of pigments containing heavy metals, paraffin (from petroleum), synthetic oxides and micas, plastics and asbestos particles alarmed me. As a parent and a teacher I want to know that the children in my circles are using safe art mediums to draw, paint, explore, inquire, mould and build. Here is when the endless nights of reading and experimenting began. I can now, because of my passion for the experimentation process and ‘perfecting’ formulas and belief in myself, offer an eco-friendly alternative. One that I am happy to let my daughter chew! Watch this space for the full range of eco friendly, 100% plant based, non-toxic art mediums to be released.
