Where did your business name come from? Is there an interesting story behind it?
Baiser is derived from the latin word basiare that means kiss. For us, Baiser represents the infinite love we have for nature and all living creatures.
Have you always been passionate about design?
Yes! We have loved design from an early age. We developed an affinity for art and design, and eventually decided to pursue careers in the creative field.
What drew you to this particular field?
Herbology has played a major part in our lives. We grew up learning how to heal ourselves using plants and flowers as part of the Mayan tradition.
What do you think sets your product apart from others?
All our products are cruelty free, chemical free, and toxin free, while also having infinite properties through the plant base ingredients that align the chakras while restoring the skin.
Our formulas are based on natural recipes and remedies inspired by Maya Medicine that has been in our families for generations. Combined with aroma therapeutic ingredients, our products will nourish, restore and balance your mind body and spirit while embracing natural beauty.
Have you had any major failures? If so, what were some important insights gained?
In the path of making our dreams come true, we have stumbled many times, but these experiences have transformed us into stronger humans.
Have you sacrificed anything to create your business?
When creating a business you have to sacrifice many things: time, money, energy, family. The important thing for us to know, is that everything is worth it when you build a business that has such a positive impact in the world and inspires many to have a more conscious life by respecting all living creatures and our planet.
What has been your proudest moment since creating your business?
Winning the Martha Stewart American Made Awards was a flag of hope when we didn’t know how to make it.
How does the city you live in influence your work?
Miami is one of our biggest inspirations. Between the pastel colors, art deco architecture, and the surrounding nature, it offers so much to us on a daily basis.
What valuable experience/knowledge did you have before starting your business?
We’ve had careers and interests in art direction, fashion design, herbology, spiritual healing and reiki. All of these elements came together and that’s how we created Baiser.
What made you take this leap into being your own boss?
As creators we all felt responsible to develop a source of wellness and inspiration that empowered women.
What are some tips or suggestions you’d like to offer to fellow makers?
Never give up, do not let fear come between you and your dreams.
