Our Story

Meet the Owner & Founder

Danielle aka That Soap Chick

Danielle "That Soap Chick" Stokes, the owner & founder of Noraa Body Love, is a long-time Pennsylvania resident but was born in New Jersey (you may or may not judge her for that and that’s ok :) )

Danielle and many members of her family have suffered from various skin problems, from adult acne to eczema to excessively oily skin and the exact opposite. Big brand-named soaps, serums, and body care products offered no relief and sometimes made matters worse. So, lots of research and experimenting led to the creation of skincare products that are skin-loving and rejuvenating. 

Danielle loves creating and is a marketer, digital designer, and budding nature photographer.

More About Noraa Body Love

Noraa Body Love founder and her father

Noraa Body Love is a skincare line based in the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania. The name “Noraa” is a dedication to the owner's (step)father, Aaron, who passed in 2020 from complications from early-onset dementia. He was a hard worker all of his life, a dedicated husband, loving brother, a father-figure to all, and an all-around amazing man.

Noraa Body Love products lack the added detergents and parabens typically found in big brand names which are known to be skin irritants and overall harmful to the body. Many of our products are vegan and extensive research is done on an ongoing basis to find ingredients that are naturally derived and ethically and sustainably sourced, where possible. Also, almost all of our soaps contain mineral rich clays (Clay also happens to be Aaron's middle name!). Not only do these clays add natural color, derived from minerals naturally found in the soil, they also contribute to the skin benefits of our soap.

Noraa Body Love products are handcrafted in small batches so, while the skin-loving recipes remain the same, designs and colors may differ from batch to batch.
