Tickle your senses with fresh food for your skin. Luxurious, natural soaps made the old fashion way, using only premium, food-grade plant oils. Have fun, don’t take bathtime soap seriously.

Technically, treestar* falls into the Beauty and Cosmetics category, but that world takes itself a bit too seriously. We like to take a more fun and witty approach to soap. We provide bath experiences that people look forward to and enjoy, thus making them feel great. Our first exfoliating soap was called Lemon Papi (pun intended), and our lineup now also includes the Bee’s Knees, Blue Steel, and Fir You. Not all of our soaps have clever names though; we also have classics like Lavender, Orange, Ginger & Turmeric. We try to be playful and not take things soap seriously. We value providing sensory experiences while not sacrificing the quality of the product. We don’t use any surfactants or detergents, so the soaps are essentially food for your skin. “Tickle your senses, with fresh food for your skin”

treestar* was created out of necessity. In February of 2017, I quit my job in operations and decided to try my luck at starting my own business. Without much capital, I had limited options. I decided on making soaps and taught myself about the process. I developed a handful of products to test out at markets around the city, and we launched our business in June of 2017 at the Queens Night Market.
Since signing up with MiQ, they have attended numerous markets and got their product featured at District Market in LaGuardia Airport.
