I am Lydia Gibson, owner of Eva Jenae Naturals, LLC. I am a wife, proud mother of two, and an Air Force veteran. My education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences from the University of West Florida and a Master of Arts in Management from Wayland Baptist University. I grew up in eastern North Carolina and have lived in the Dayton area for two years.
The journey to Eva Jenae Naturals began in 2006 soon after my daughter Eva was born. She was diagnosed with eczema at an early age and I did not comprehend why the prescriptions and store bought products were not working for her. After a bit of research, I realized the prescriptions and even the products we were using that were labeled “all natural” contained chemicals, perfumes, and other ingredients that further irritated her skin. There was an absence of soothing and moisturizing ingredients that would nourish and protect her delicate skin.
Fed up with the alternatives, I began to experiment with simple ingredients that have been used for centuries in healing and skincare. Little Eva’s skin responded so well to the creations that I began sharing them with friends and family who loved them just as much as I did! The encouragement from them inspired the birth of Eva Jenae Naturals!
I made the transition from a hobby to a business in September 2011 when I found myself unemployed after my husband’s military transfer to Ohio. I’ve known I wanted to be an entrepreneur since I was in the 7th grade and felt the time was right to go ahead and dive in. I am fortunate to have my husband and kids as excited about this new venture as I am!
