When founder Margaux was teaching in 2015, she realized she kept spending on natural mosquito repellents, so she asked herself “Why not make my own?” With the help of friends, she started Control Freak and began selling online before moving to baby shops and e-commerce websites like Lazada and Shopee. On how the product was named, she says, “The name ‘Control Freak’ was inspired by my dad who seems to be a control freak over several things. I realized that we all want to exert a certain degree of control in our daily lives. Control Freak offers users a greater degree of ‘control’ over the little bothersome things in everyday life.” It features organic, plant-based, and essential oil-based solutions for daily needs people need to control. Their products are inspired by the timeless beauty of nature and the no-nonsense properties they give.
