Our Mission Statement & BIO
Artisan Body Products came into fruition back in 2011 after a long journey by owner Ione Talese as she was searching for pain relief for chronic back pain.
Trying a multitude of natural and holistic approaches, nutrition changes, physical strength building, yoga stretching, she found that a daily ritual of relaxation techniques, deep oil massages and the use of natural body products lessened the pain and misery. She also discovered a huge universe of natural body products and the importance of using good soaps & how creatively gorgeous they could be! (This is when she got hooked…)
So Ione decided to meet these dedicated soap makers, find out how they made these soaps and found herself immersed in a new project. So what came next? You guessed it, opening up a soap store in Ocean City, N.J. to pursue her passion.
