Meet the Vendor: Schmidt Deodorant
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Jaime Schmidt and I am the owner of Schmidt’s Deodorant.
How far will you be traveling to come to UCU?
I’ll be making the drive from our hometown of Portland up to beautiful Seattle.
Is this a full-time business for you?
Oh yes! More than that, it’s become a way of life. 🙂
What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
They love that it ACTUALLY works! We hear from customers constantly that ours is the only natural deodorant brand that’s worked for them. People also love the variety of scents and our gorgeous, sustainable packaging.
What’s the best experience you’ve ever had with one of your customers?
When I was pregnant with my son Oliver, I became very active in making beauty and personal care products at home for my family. I rid the house of anything potentially toxic or not made from natural ingredients! I began sharing the products with friends who encouraged me to sell them at local markets. The response from customers was so overwhelming in their love for the deodorant, that we went full steam ahead and launched Schmidt’s Deodorant in 2012!
