Our Story

Thanks for visiting our site!  Na Praia (Na Pry-ah) brand bath and body products have been manufactured on Galveston Island since 2001 when the founder, Michelle Gorman, wanted all-natural alternatives to store-bought, mass-produced products.  Michelle is a professional Merchant Mariner which gave her the time at home between trips at sea to develop products and product lines that were reflective of the natural environment we enjoy with island living.  Brazil was a common work area for Michelle and why she chose the name Na Praia which translates to “On the Beach” in Portuguese.  We hope you will enjoy the products as much as we enjoy making them.  There’s something for everyone.  Let us know if there is something special that you are looking for and we may be able to add it to the next season’s line.

Due to the current social distancing, we aren’t attending any markets but products are always available for shipping or free Galveston Island delivery!

All of our products are made by hand, using all natural ingredients. If for any reason you aren’t delighted with your order, please let us know so we can make it right.
