A Clean Start

Celebrate your next birthday with a bit of bubbly! Mariel Nader's one-of-a-kind soaps were inspired by the shades and shapes of the 12 birthstones. Made with only high-quality, pure ingredients and enriched with invigorating minerals, vegetable-based dyes, and soothing vitamin E oil, these lustrous soaps are handcrafted in small batches without the use of molds. The artist hand-cuts and carves realistic angles and facets into the vibrant soap rocks once they're set in their gemstone-like shapes, giving each one the unique look and feel of an authentic birthstone. Handmade in Connecticut.

Soap list and corresponding birthstones and scents:
January: Garnet - Cranberry & Cedarwood
February: Amethyst - Lavender
March: Aquamarine - Fresh Rain
April: Diamond - Crisp Water
May: Emerald - Green Tea
June: Moonstone - Tulip Bouquet
July: Ruby - Red Roses & Burgundy
August: Peridot - Water Lily & Jasmine
September: Sapphire - Blueberry
October: Opal - Apple & Jasmine
November: Citrine - White Tea & Ginger
December: Turquoise - Grapefruit & Lily of The Valley

Each is handmade and approx 4.5-5 oz. and measures 4"L x 2.5"W x 2"H

Ingredients:
Glycerin, Vitamin E, Aloe, Vegetable Colorants, Fragrance & Essential Oils
May also contain shea butter and goat's milk

Mariel grew up in a very crafty family from Puebla, Mexico and learned many different techniques using various materials, including ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, painting, knitting, masks, candle-making and her favorite craft, soap making. Mariel has a passion for nature, colors and shapes. Very early on she found that minerals, precious and semi-precious stones encompass all these characteristics in a very dynamic way. She moved to the US in 2002 and went to college in CT. Post graduating she traveled around the world for pleasure and also pursuing art courses including one in Florence, Italy where she learned to use different art mediums/technics that later with some imagination she figured out the way to apply into soap crafting using high end cosmetic materials. She decided to embark on a quest for replicating these beautiful gifts of the earth in 2012 and after much research and trials, created these wonderful mineral soaps that represent her passion for nature and craftsmanship. She is now living the dream of working in her creative business from her little studio back in New London, CT.

                    I was looking for a gift for my sister's February birthday. What a beautiful well created bath soap idea. Unique and truly looks like a birthstone! As far as the quality of the soap itself, I can't comment on that as the two soaps were for gifts.

                      My sister was given the beautiful birthstone soap by me as I had received some for my birthday. Love the soap and use daily on my face as cleared up my skin with a breaking out issue from the previous product I had used for years. My face never feels dry and love the look of the product. She collects rocks/gems so was happy to have a pretty one for her bathroom!
