Just Neem was born out of a conversation between friends when Peter Radtke (Just Neem co-founder) was introduced to Bill Stoffregen. Bill was an amazing businessman and was working on a project in Mauritania, West Africa. Bill had previously traveled to this Saharan region and was ambitiously researching the potential to use Neem for economic development.
Intrigued by the natural skincare solutions that Neem could offer as well as the potential impact the economy of impoverished countries, Peter joined Bill on his next trip to the area. Together they formed relationships that laid the groundwork for what would soon become a national skincare company.
After lots of research, Peter and his wife, Magda, began making soap from their home and selling it at local farmers’ markets. It was a fun time, but they eventually outgrew their kitchen. They decided to move operations to a manufacturing space they loving nick-named, “The Soap Kitchen”.
