About the founder and CEO Amanda Johnson
Diagnosed in her younger years with PTSD, severe anxiety and panic disorders, Amanda started making soap as a way of coping with her anxiety, and soon she was selling it out of her home. She began to add other products to her line, and Truth Niagara was born.
Now, several years later, Truth Niagara is synonymous with ethical business practices, as well as maintaining complete transparency about the ingredients in their products. They pride themselves on hiring individuals who may not be given an equal opportunity in the workforce because of poor past choices.
Amanda is also a strong advocate for mental health resources and addiction support. Truth Niagara’s mission is to help others just RELAX. They remind us that life is busy, but we all need to take time out for ourselves. Their mission is to deliver high-quality ingredients at affordable prices so that everyone, regardless of circumstance or income can enjoy a bit of luxury.
Although Amanda’s entrepreneurial spirit is truly impressive, what inspires us most is her dedication to supporting the marginalized and displaced members of the Welland community.
Located at 3 East Main Street in Welland, Ontario Beyond the Streets Niagara
is a community organization with the simple message: “Nobody gets left behind or forgotten.”
