I'm Lissette, the owner of BISOU Di MAR.
I've been a master cosmetologist for 22 years, certified in soap making and natural skincare. In 2020 I decided to merge my beauty and health knowledge and create a boutique that provides pure artisan soap and skincare. The purpose of the boutique is to elevate the self care experience by adding healing and nourishing properties into each product, leaving out all chemicals.
I truly believe that gifting is an incredible act of love and can make people feel happy, that's why Bisou Di Mar intends to design gift sets, incorporating all the goods to help you give a warm and personalized experience.
One of our special qualities is being meticulous and taking in consideration every detail.

"Good energy flows into everything we do and in what we give to others."
At Bisou Di Mar we are looking forward to be help you simplify the gifting process.

Let's make someone happy together!
Im Cuban ~ Puerto Rican born in New York. I've always been a nature enthusiastic. At a young age I was interested in exploring the world, making art with the materials I found, such as charcoal, leaves, flowers, and mud. The freedom my parents gave me to play with nature made me who I am, a multidisciplinary artist. Drawing skills, painting and crafting and some other art forms I enjoy practicing while my soaps get time to be fully curated. Some crafts are seen in my store. Some I keep for home and friends.
I enjoy having a healthy living lifestyle because it makes me feel better! I love cooking, exercise, spending time gardening, practicing mindfulness and other health~conscious practices into my life.
I enjoy traveling and learning from different cultures. Caribbean, Italy, France, Greece, Barcelona, Turkey, Mexico and more... They all inspire my creativity! I like making friends from all around the world!
The enthusiasm for soap making in the traditional cold process method started in a trip to Greece in 2013.
As soon as I received my certification, I started to get creative, combining different oils and make my own recipe. The passion for the craft just kept growing!, until 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!, A true warrior!
All this encouraged me educate myself in nutrition coaching at CSI college, New York. My own sensitive skin (rosacea) encouraged me to accomplish a Natural skincare certification in order to find natural solutions and feel confident formulating with advanced knowledge.
Unfortunately, years later my beloved mother passed away. My world turned over! I lost my best friend.
All I can think of is on how grateful I am to have the mother. Forever 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 store 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 working from home has me closer to my family and I love it.
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.
My mission is to educate others that simple, clean products have healing properties. There is no need to expose our bodies to harmful ingredients. Herbs and Natural remedies really work! Im a RA warrior.
I had to make a lot of changes in my life by incorporating more healthy foods into my diet, use more herbs, teas, learn to control stress, be aware of what I used on my skin, switch to eco detergents, use non toxic households products and do what makes me happy.
At the moment I'm in remission from RA and pain free. I pray it stays as long as possible.
Crafting brings me so much joy. I consider it my therapy.
I welcome all health professionals to collaborate and share knowledge that sustains our mission.
Thank you for taking your time to read Bisou Di Mar story.
