He later joined Bain & Company where he worked as a management consultant for a few years, before joining Google in 2015.
The husband-and-wife duo have been together for 15 years and have two young daughters. Their passion for clean living began when they decided to start a family, yearning to create a safe, non-toxic environment at home.
They conceptualized the idea of Rooted Regimen after experiencing and learning a host of health issues caused by different ingredients present in most personal and home care products, they set out to create a safe and affordable alternative.
The couple collaborated with a UK- based Research & Development Lab to formulate Rooted Regimen. Each formula is certified Vegan and Hypoallergenic, and made entirely from plant- based materials, with each ingredient rated ‘green’ by the Environmental Working Group.
Rooted Regimen offers ethical, safe and toxin - free home care products on a completely online platform. Each product is sold in recyclable, reusable packaging to ensure minimum harm to the planet, with tough ingredients that can leave any space looking spotless.
Bassem and Soraya believe that everyone deserves access to safe and affordable home cleaning products, which they ensure by operating from a 100% digital platform and adopting a refill model.
They believe that a healthy home is the first step to building a healthy planet and are committed to ensuring the same for everyone.
