Hello, my name is Nicole Paul. I am the owner/founder of Nico Nine Soaps & Skin Care. I am new to the artisan soap & skincare market. I have always been a girly girl & absolutely love all kinds of good smelling body products (especially on men). I have always loved handmade soaps & skincare products because of how natural they are. I remember when I was younger & I would hear my elders speak of rubbing castor oil on their skin for softness or their feet for healing. It was used even for stomach problems. When my firstborn was small & had a diaper rash, I remember my mom going into the kitchen & browning up flour on the stovetop to put on his bottom to clear his rash "Yes' it works". There is so much history of how our ancestors then & family today use these same handmade ingredients for cleanliness, health & healing.
“Little bit about me”. I enjoy hobbies like home repair/remodel, sewing, gardening, refurbishing furniture & cooking. I’m a huge animal lover. I have 3 dogs. I have 4 adult children (finally) and I’m a grandmother of 2 boys. I am a pescatarian, have been for the past many years. I knew I needed to live a healthier lifestyle not just with the foods I was eating, but also with the products myself & my family used on our skin daily. I began researching all-natural handmade skincare. Learned a lot about the ingredients in the products that we were using & the chemicals we were being exposed to. I decided it would be healthier to make my own handmade soaps & skincare for my family. After much research & lots of practice. I learned how to make my own handmade soaps & skincare that I’m so proud of & love very much.
Switching to handmade products was not only safe & healthier but one of the best changes I made. There are so many skin-loving benefits in the ingredients that I use. My products are made with all-natural butters, milks & oils like Shea, Cocoa, Mango butter, Buttermilk & Coconut milk just to name a few. I use all-natural sea salts, clay, dried organic herbs, flowers, fruits & vegetables. I wanted to make sure I was used all-natural ingredients that are healthy & safe not just for our skin but also for the environment. My products will leave your skin smooth, soft, replenished & smelling fresh. Your skin will not only look good, but it will also feel good. I am very pleased with my products & I know you will be pleased too.
FYI- In case you are wondering where the name came from. Well, my name is Nicole & I'm my parent's 9th child. There you have Nico-Nine. Pretty awesome right :-)
Thank you & Enjoy

Hello Number Nine, this is your father. I may come out of retirement and become one of your employees. The only thing I need will be the benefits. (Plus free products.) The benefit is that I LOVE YOU, because you have taken control of your life in a very positive way, and you enjoy helping others. May your story be an inspiration to others who have said, how do I start! I’ve watch you grow from a baby to a very inspiring woman. We, your family (all 11 of us) think that you are the greatest. With Love, The Paul Family
