About the speaker

Stevi is the founder and owner of The Camel Soap Factory.

Stevi has been living in the UAE since 2002. Prior to that she lived in London and was General Manger of a software company selling payment technologies.

After the birth of her daughter in 2005 became increasingly obsessed with the idea of creating a business built on her passions.

A trip to Australia in 2008 when she visited an amazing olive oil soap factory cemented the idea in her head of creating a company selling soap with camels milk and olive oil as ingredients fragranced with only the finest essential oils.

She studied soap making with Melinda Coss in London (author of “The Handmade Soap book”) and came back to Dubai enthused. Making soaps with camels milk has been a great learning curve and she is delighted to be bringing a commercial product to market.

The business was started initially as a home industry with Stevi manufacturing the soaps at home and selling into markets and fairs. The company is now based in Al Quoz, Dubai.
