About Jeff Cardarella
Jeff is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, with a degree in Occupational Safety and spent his early years working on air quality issues in the printing industry. Within the past 15 years, he became aware of increasing health problems, ranging from eye and throat irritation to asthma and leukemia, among nail technicians and hair stylists.
Alarmed by the prevalence of potentially dangerous fumes, vapors, dusts and mists permeating the air in these environments, Jeff began working on devices especially designed to remove harmful toxins from the air in hair salons, nail salons and spas. His research efforts included consultations with hundreds of cosmetologists, an aerospace design engineer with experience in air purification, and a leading source capture ventilation manufacturing expert.
Jeff also consulted with an internationally known salon industry scientist & chemist to develop proper breathing zone protection for salon professionals, and a comprehensive "Three Zone Protection" approach towards proper salon ventilation.
He believes that everyone, especially the hard-working people who serve others as part of their every-day lives, should enjoy the benefits of clean air. Because they care about clean air, his team at Aerovex Systems is dedicated to provide the best possible air purification products to salons at affordable prices.
Jeff is also a founding member of the Professional Keratin Smoothing Council which is committed to the safety of salon professionals and consumers and the growth of the professional beauty industry, advocacy for the Keratin/Smoothing hair category and the principles of professionalism, transparency and accountability.
