Inga Tritt founded The Original Little Sprout® in 2003 and Original Sprout in 2007. The name Little Sprout was inspired by the birth of her daughter Maya. Inga was born in Germany and grew up in Montecito, California. Her love of nature, art and architecture led to a successful career as a master stylist. Wanting to be a full time mum led her to selling her salons & spas and moving to the country, where she now lives with her family.
Our founder delighted in her newborn daughter’s thick hair. Wanting to use the safest bath products led to her trying natural baby shampoos. To her surprise, all the shampoos wreaked havoc on her daughter’s hair and sensitive skin. To remedy the problem, Inga created the first of it’s kind; ultra moisturizing, natural baby bath & styling products. The benefits of being a master stylist with professional experience & a mother with real life experience culminated into Original Sprout, a globally trusted natural family brand.
