Marie Collignon was initially an independent nurse, but at 36 she decided to turn things upside down! “I wanted to assist my husband in his work as a beekeeper,” she says. So, she began training in 2015, and two years later here she is at Pierre-Henri’s side!
“The bees rest during winter— unlike me! Not a moment’s rest for me!” jokes Marie. She started by making honey-based pastries and sweets, and one day Pierre-Henri suggested soap... Marie is not one to waste time: in 2018, soap making began!

“When I’m alone during the preparation process, I find myself re-using all of the same concentration skills and the technical proficiencies I gained as a nurse”. Indeed, a lot of precision is required at each stage of the artisanal soap making process: each creation requires its own formula! These are developed by Marie herself and then tested by a toxicologist.

Marie is a regular at markets and fairs, where she sells her range of 7 products. She can also be found in the micro-region’s shops. Her soaps are made using organic vegetable oils, without allergens, and are free from CMR chemicals. The ideal recipe for skincare!
