FROM FRUSTRATION TO SCENT, AFTER SCENT, SCHMIDT’S DEODORANT HAS COME A LONG WAY FROM ITS HUMBLE BEGINNINGS, NOW OFFERING A LARGE RANGE OF JAR AND STICK DEODORANTS ACROSS THE GLOBE.
Built from her Portland, Oregon kitchen up, founder Jamie Schmidt had a burning desire to show consumers just how well natural deodorant really can work. A natural product developer and strong innovator at heart, Jamie made it her mission to change the way people think about natural deodorant.
When developing her formula, she refused to compromise on the effectiveness. Investing hours, days, weeks and months into research and testing was all worth it when she launched Schmidt’s Deodorant in 2010 and immediately began receiving positive reviews.
Seeing huge potential in the then small deodorant business, successful business man, Michael Cammarata invested in helping Jamie to grow Schmidt’s to where it is today. Now the brand is loved internationally, found in hundreds of thousands of homes.
Schmidt’s is trusted by customers to effectively neutralise odour and help absorb wetness, feel great on the skin and smell amazing.
As the company grows, Jamie continues to ensure Schmidt’s is committed to always putting customers and ingredients first. Recently she and Michael Cammarata (Chief Global Strategy Officer of Schmidt’s Deodorant) both won the Ernst & Young PNW Entrepreneur of The Year 2017 Award in the Retail and Consumer Goods category. The award recognises entrepreneurs who excel in innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“We’re honoured to be recognised – and among such distinguished company!” – Jamie said.
This year Jamie has been more driven than ever to expand Schmidt’s to include new innovations throughout the bathroom and household categories. Look out for the latest newbies added to the Schmidt’s range in this catalogue!
