Founder & Creative Director – NEOM Organics
Widely recognised as one of the first, and fastest growing wellbeing brands in the UK, Neom now has five standalone stores and is stocked with renowned retailers including Selfridges, Fenwick and John Lewis.
With the UK candle market valued at £90 million (Kantar), Neom’s organic credentials set it apart from other brands. All products are made in Britain, from ethically sourced and sustainable origins and use only natural, organic ingredients and no artificial perfumes.
Nicola’s inspiration for Neom came whilst working as a magazine editor, when she realised the wellbeing of her friends and colleagues was suffering due to the demands of their fast-paced lives. Neom’s product line has expanded significantly to incorporate products for the home, body, and facial skincare, as well as wellbeing spa treatments. Each new product remains central to the brands ethos, the belief that every item must serve a therapeutic need and purpose.
As Creative Director Nicola continues to steer Neom’s vision. Previously awarded the title of ‘Entrepreneur of the Future’ in the prestigious Woman of the Future Awards, Nicola inspires women to press pause and make their wellbeing a priority. With the global wellness industry recently valued at $4.2 trillion (Global Wellness Institue), Neom occupies a key space in a growing market for natural organic products with a luxury edge.
