Lumi, the Finnish word for Snow was the inspiration behind the name as well as some of the very first LumiByMari handmade soaps ever created.
The inspiration for all LumiByMari products come truly from the heart of our founder, Mari, and she never stops looking for materials and ideas. Nature and its ingredients are close to her and this is evident from the soaps as well as bath and body products...fresh scents of fruits, flowers and the forest are often found in our products and many gift-sets are extremely limited edition - even one off items are to be found.
Our Founder, Mari, is a Finnish-American Entrepreneur who decided after 28 years in global corporate business that it was time to do something she truly loved and LumiByMari was born.
Mari was born and raised in Finland, spent 17 years in England followed by 6 years in Germany prior to settling down in the US.
Mari, her husband, son and four dogs reside in Southern Indiana, tucked away in the woods by a lake where Mari has her soap-studio.
All LumiByMari products are handmade from the beginning to the packaging and therefore each and every item is unique! Only the finest ingredients, fragrances and colors are used in our products and the quality of our products is of utmost importance. Each item truly is handmade with love.
We are proud to be able to offer custom products and find the design process of these most rewarding.
