Naomi is the WAHM behind Quadra Island Soaps. She has been happily married to the love of her life for almost 20 years. They have four amazing little ones together- three girls (15, 14, and 7) and one boy (9).
Naomi's sister in law began making soaps for her sons sensitive skin, and then began selling them at her local market. In 2010 she had to move for her husbands job, and Naomi took over the business.
Naomi loves creating any and all types of soaps! She works with both Cold Process and Melt and Pour soaps and loves the creativity either medium allows. Her favorite scent is constantly changing, but for now her personal favorite is Green Tea and Lemongrass.
Naomi loves the freedom she has to be creative and still homeschool her littles. She loves the close relationship with her family that working from home has allowed.
She loves when her customers love her product's as much as she does. She also loves the process of creating her soaps, but says sometimes the paperwork and responsibilities that come with owning and running a soap business can be overwhelming- But in my opinion there is no better woman for the job.
Naomi is incredibly honest with her advertising. She carefully selects everything that goes into her soaps, but is sure to advertise her soaps properly. A lot of companies similar to her make similar soaps and label them as "Organic". Even soaps made using organic ingredients should not be labeled as "Organic" unless they have been certified. A lot of companies will label their products as Organic simply charge extra, even if the do not have the certification to label as "Organic". Naomi advertises her products more honestly than some of these other companies.
"I have lived on Quadra Island for 35 years. I love my home and the people in our community. When trying to come up with a style and name for my soap, I wanted the “feel” of my product to be similar to how I feel about Quadra and the islanders. As each bar is individually hand cut, each bar is unique. Although, with it’s rough cut and unrefined exterior, our soaps have artistic beauty and nurturing substance to them. That is how I feel about Quadra. It may not be what some people think of when they think beauty but the wholesome natural goodness is there."
