Who are you and what do you do?
Hi! I’m Jaime…I live in Portland where I own and operate Schmidt’s, a line of all natural deodorant.
Any new exciting news you’d like to share with our readers?
I’m thrilled to announce our product was recently brought in to Whole Foods Market! We have a loyal base of customers in the Seattle area, many whom we first met through the Urban Craft Uprising shows. Having the product available at Whole Foods makes it much more accessible to them.
Are you debuting anything new at the winter show?
Yes! We’re excited to introduce our Deluxe Sampler Gift Box at this year’s show. The box contains a ½ oz sample of each of our 5 deodorant fragrances. This is a great option for those who have difficulty choosing their favorite Schmidt’s Deodorant scent. Of course, it makes an excellent gift, too!
Who’s your biggest fan?
Alicia Silverstone! Well, our biggest “celebrity” fan, that is. Our deodorant was recently featured in Us Weekly Magazine as a favorite product of Alicia’s, which she said will “truly change your life.”
What do your customers love most about your products?
It works! We regularly hear from customers who have been on a quest for the “perfect” natural deodorant who say Schmidt’s is the only brand they’ve found that has worked for them. Customers also appreciate the variety of fragrances available and the glass jars as an
alternative to conventional plastic packaging.
