Deborah Seewald (owner, Devorah Naturals)
Deborah was raised in Chicago but now calls Pittsburgh, PA her home. Coming from a family of nature lovers, she developed a love for the living world early in life. Weekend hikes, frequent car rides to the countryside and a family garden reinforced her connection with nature.
The desire to use body care more connected to nature led Deborah to learn how to formulate soaps, balms, creams and lotions. Her botanically based formulations contain organic oils and herbs, honey, goat’s milk and other ingredients beneficial to the skin. She enjoys working with botanical ingredients to create beautiful handcrafted soaps and body care that touch the senses in many ways.
Initially, she made her products for friends and family but production has since expanded to include private label, placement in retail outlets and direct sales through markets and her website.
When not formulating product, Deborah can be found hiking, reading or enjoying her children and grandchildren.
