My name is Daina I am the owner and founder of Adventurist Soap Co. Like many, my passion for environmentalism and my love for being outdoors led me on a journey to become an environmental steward. Life has taken me down a lot of different paths but the one path that left the biggest impression has been soap making. I didn’t expect soap making to turn into such a passion let alone a career. I have found that it provides a perfect blend of science and art.
Growing up as a kid, in the summers when school was out, I loved being outdoors. From sunrise to sunset you could find me, barefoot, running around and playing in dirt. I was a tough kid and didn’t mind scraping up my knees to climb a tree or play in the reservoir behind my childhood home. As an adult not much has changed. I still love being outdoors whether that’s hiking, camping, snowboarding, riding motorcycles, rock climbing you name it. My fiance will even tell you that I still love being barefoot and occasionally he’ll let me put my cold feet on him to warm them up.
I have always had a deep connection to nature, and it is my fondness of nature and adventure that drafted The Adventurist Soap Co. I believe that human beings are totally dependent on nature, and when we work to preserve it, we are actually working to preserve ourselves. I pride myself on using all-natural, cruelty-free and environmentally sustainable ingredients in all of my products. My mission is to give back to the enviornment through my sustainable ingredients and donations to national conservation non-profits.
