Once upon a time, in the beautiful, tiny village of Knowlton, Quebec, a young man named Mike Wiesel, and his lovely wife, Mary Pallett, became the proud parents of two darling daughters. They were born, as all children are, with big, beautiful eyes, curious souls, and a desire to explore their world.
Both Mike and Mary, soapmakers and crafters extraordinaire, were thrilled to pass on their life experience to their children. They believed the best way to do this was hands on, of course. Together, the girls and their parents made playdough from scratch, learned how to crack eggs without pieces of shell falling into the bowl, and even tried their hand at making lip balm from a kit. When the parents’ backs were turned for only a moment, their younger daughter, only two at the time, began eating the recently-made tube of lip balm. Horrified, Mary quickly scooped the goop from her daughter’s mouth and checked the ingredient listing on the back of the box.
What were these ingredients? Why were there so many chemical names? Surely someone could make a natural lip balm from scratch!
Mike, who had mastered the art of soap formulating, decided then and there that something must be done. He quickly put his talents to work and formulated a safe, non-toxic, paraben-free, synthetic dye-free, all-natural lip balm using simple, 100% natural ingredients.
The process, from start to finish, was so easy that Mike and Mary decided to start selling the do-it-yourself Lip Balm kits in their country store, which they’d purchased prior to starting a family.
The kits flew off the shelves in record time.
Seeing how popular the craft kits were becoming, Mike and Mary decided it was time to start creating other make-it-yourself items to compliment the DIY Lip Balm Kits. So, they introduced DIY Bath Fizzies, DIY Glycerin Soap, and DIY Lip Gloss. The kits continued to sell out.
In 2008, after several years of working to meet the constantly increasing demand for natural body care kits, Kiss Naturals was born. Over the next decade, children from all over the US, Canada, Mexico, and Australia would enjoy the Kiss Naturals DIY experience.
Now, Kiss Naturals is on a mission to help even more children. With every purchase made on this website, $1 from each kit will benefit a charity listed on our Charities page. We strongly believe that sharing is caring and that nature got it right the first time. As our slogan says, “Live Natural. Play Natural.”
