My name is Marlene Rivera, and I'm the owner of Musa Natural. I was created to create and have been making candles since 2002. I started making candles as a hobby while pregnant with my first son. While he was a toddler we found out that not only was he allergic to the sun but any sunscreen containing paraben. This is when I became conscious of my environment and what I put both on and in my body. Reading ingredients on lotions, soaps, balms and other products I regularly used inspired me to start making my own along with embracing a “cleaner” lifestyle.
Musa Natural was born when friends and family began requesting my natural products and offering to pay for a chance to be able to use products on their body containing ingredients they could not only pronounce but were able to trace back to nature.
Why the name Musa Natural?
I wanted a way to incorporate my son into my business name. My son was and is my Muse along with the other two beautiful souls I gave birth to after. Musa means Muse in Spanish. Muse, as defined by Merrian-Webster, is a source of inspiration. I used the word natural because I knew early on what the core of my business would be.
I hope you enjoy the products you purchase as much as I enjoy making them.
