My name is Niema Stone. I own a small business called Soapstone Soaps, LLC located in Detroit, Michigan. I first started out with making natural hand-made soaps and eventually increased my product line to include body butters, chap sticks and bath salts. My goal is to retire from teaching children and open up a shop where I can make, sell and teach other people how to make healthy skin-loving products for the body.
One of the reasons I started making natural products for the body is my husband has eczema. In 2009, I began to research the process of how to make soap. In 2010, I started making cold process soap. For another year, I passed out samples to family & friends. I took in their input and perfected my recipe. Fast forward eight years. Here I am today. I’m in nine stores across the Metropolitan Detroit area. I have more than twenty types of handmade soaps. I think, eat and sleep soap. This is my passion. This is what I do!
