Hi! I'm Zaidat, and my husband is Jamin, and we are the owners of ZAJA Natural & The Beer Soap Company. We met in the Fall of 2001. Two years later, our daughter was born. Being a college senior studying Biology & Chemistry at the time, and needing a source of income that didn't require keeping hours, I decided to learn how to make soap and start a business. A year later, ZAJA Natural Handmade Confections came into fruition.
I come from a business minded background. My mother is a fashion designer and perfumer and has owned a fashion store for as far back as I can remember. Every day she would take me to her store, where I learned so many things. Of course, back then I saw it as a form of punishment, because what kid wants to spend time tending a storefront, mixing oils, and doing basic accounting? But the knowledge that she taught me hands on is priceless.
One of my favorite lessons was scent blending. I can truly attest to being the best smelling kid in every class.
I try to incorporate much of what I learned into this company. With fine attention to detail, colors, recipe formulation, I can assure you that your skin is in good hands. Jamin is an Air Force veteran, and the skills he learned in the military help keep us organized and on top of our game. With every creative mind, there must be one to keep it grounded.
We promise to bring you our best. Our soaps are made in small batches to ensure quality control and goodness. Making soap is truly an art form and we hope you enjoy ours.
Fast forward 14 years later, and we now have two lines that we are extremely proud of. Our products have been fortunate to have been featured on many blogs, in news articles, and magazines. Some of the features include Imbibe Magazine (May 2009 issue,) Urban Daddy, Thrillist, Everyday with Rachael Ray, European Car Magazine, Trend Hunter, Entertainment Tonight, and Wine Enthusiast... to name a few. The Beer Soap Company was also featured in Etsy's "Quit Your Day Job" series in 2009.
