Let's make someone happy together!
The passion for artisan soap making started in a trip to Greece in 2013. Was the first time using a high quality handmade bar and it felt comforting and soft on my sensitive skin.
I decided to learn how to make my own bars! And I did.!
As soon as I received my certification, I started to get creative, combining different oils and make my own recipe. The love for the craft just kept growing!, but certain events forced me to put it all in pause.
My mother was diagnosed with cancer. I was devastated. Despite her condition, she was so optimistic and kept her spirit high. Had a great sense of humor. Always smiling!
I've always been a nature enthusiastic. Im cuban-puertorrican, born in New York.
Some of the things I enjoy are cooking, doing exercise, gardening, practicing mindfulness and other health~conscious practices.
As an adventurous soul its a pleasure to me exploring the world and absorbing the richness of all cultures.
Caribbean, Italy, France, Greece, Barcelona, Turkey, Mexico, Jamaica and more...
The experience with my mother encouraged me to do some research and enroll in a nutrition coaching program at CSI college, New York and complete a Natural skincare certification in order to find natural solutions and feel confident formulating with advanced knowledge. Health is a wide topic, but its proven that what we eat, what our skin absorbs and the environment we live in plays a big roll in humans health overall. Many products in the industry are misleading and there really ain't many healthy options.
I created Bisou Di Mar to be a pure and clean line that will avoid ingredients that can harm the integrity of people's health and that is safe for sensitive skin, including rosacea.
Unfortunately, years later my beloved mother passed away. My world turned over! I lost my best friend. My mentor. My warrior who Im grateful for and who will always live in my heart.
I wanted her to be part of my journey and keep her legacy live on. That's when I decided to name my boutique Bisou Di Mar ~ "a kiss from Maria" ~ in her honor.
I later on became a mother of a wonderful boy. The biggest love of my life!
Now being a mom boss, working from home in my own workshop I feel peace in mind and have more time to focus in my priorities and to be closer to my family.
My mission is to no only provide non toxic skincare products and gift sets, but to also educate people how to read a product label and know the difference between marketing strategies vs simple healthy ingredients with healing properties. The amount of toxins in regular skincare has been jeopardizing human health.
It's a fact. Studies had proven this.
I am an RA (rheumatoide arthritis) warrior who despite the pain I can experience some days, I still feel grateful and Thank God everyday to be where I am, and with the wonderful support of friends and family that surrounds me.
Im an earth conscious person, animal lover, mom of two rescued cats. I like to teach my son about the wonders of nature so he can he grow, learn and love our planet as much as I do.
Life tip: Live simple and do what makes you happy!
