We are Schmidt’s Deodorant.
Learn more about Schmidt’s beginnings in a Portland, Oregon kitchen.
Schmidt's started humbly in 2010 in a Portland, Oregon, kitchen, when founder Jaime Schmidt was pregnant with her son. Jaime's pregnancy brought her lifetime passion for natural body care into focus, motivating her to make products at home that would benefit her family's health. Knowing that natural deodorant had a reputation for being ineffective, Jaime made it her mission to change the way people think about deodorant, refusing to compromise any effectiveness when developing her formula.
A New Kind of Deodorant
Schmidt's investment in research and testing proved to be invaluable when the resulting product was confirmed to effectively neutralize odor and wetness, felt fantastic on skin, and smelled incredible. Amazed by its effectiveness, Jaime's loved ones encouraged her to introduce Schmidt's Deodorant to local farmer's markets and businesses. The response was overwhelming, and demand for the product surged as local markets began to carry and quickly sell out of the deodorant, and beauty writers and celebrities began endorsing the product.
Our Growth Story
As word of the deodorant's effectiveness went viral, the company stayed true to their humble beginnings, and endeavored to always put customers and ingredients first. Schmidt's popularity surged, launching the brand into thousands of retailers worldwide. Committed to Jaime's mission, the entire Schmidt's Deodorant team is grateful for the encouragement from all our customers to do what we do best: change the way people think about deodorant.
