About this project

“Her friends laughed when she showed them her new Marie Ernst™ Beauty Bars . . . But when she took off her coat and her friends saw how people gazed at her glowing skin!”

Describe in one word how you feel when you think of a "babies" skin.

Now imagine how you would feel if you had skin that felt just like that?

Marie Ernst™ is the latest brand to emerge in skincare innovation. Based in Portland Oregon, our company is committed to helping you uncover your young and youthful looking Skin with our revolutionary approach to Skin Care.

Look who LOVE's Marie Ernst™ Beauty Bars!
Look who LOVE's Marie Ernst™ Beauty Bars!

Marie Ernst™ was created, designed and patent pending by the Marie Ernst™ Team. Once we achieved the finest luxury soap we could imagine, we looked for an American manufacturer with the highest standards and facilities that are certified by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to produce our soaps with OTC ingredients. We needed a team that could help us differentiating our beauty bar from the competition and we knew this would be a crucial component to our success. 

We found that team in Twincraft Skincare, the same manufacturer that developed thousands of different soap formulations over the years, including Erno Laszlo, Estée Lauder, Clinique, Philosophy, Burt’s Bee’s, Bliss, Victoria Secret’s and Origins. Together, we worked hand-in-hand for over a year to perfect our aesthetics, performance, all-natural additives and fragrances. We then performed custom engineering tests on our bars to analyze wear rate, foam volume, foam stability, wet cracking, stability in various conditions and ingredient concentration—all to bring you the best product possible. 

As shown below, your body sheds 1.6 – 2 lbs. of skin a year and not removing dead flaky skin makes you look wrinkled and older. Yuk!

Our Marie Ernst™ soaps combines the full strength of two individually purposed soaps into one. The pumice half of our soap softens and removes your unwanted aging dead skin cells that make you look old and the emollient half renews your skin cells with deeper moisturizing absorbtion. 

Our dual purposed soaps provide the ultimate sensory experience in scent and texture. Made with 100% full strength in each half bar and the highest quality ingredients and essential oils, all of our products are: 

  • All-natural 
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Paraben-free 
  • Cruelty-free 
  • Phthalate-free
  • Vegan
Compelled to develop a product that would enhance your life, David Jenkins founded Marie Ernst™ under the concept of yin and yang in 2014. True to the company’s namesake and the greatest example of the yin and yang philosophy, David’s parents Mary and Ernest who have been happily married for over 60 years, our beauty bars are presented as two halves of a whole. With each bearing unique qualities, they combine to transform into one cohesive unit—stronger together than apart. Marie Ernst™ was developed with the understanding that there is a direct relationship between what you use to wash your body and face and how it pertains to your  younger and healthy looking skin. Our product and your Skin’s beauty will mesh to become one harmonious unit.

Our Mission

Our mission is your self-confidence as you celebration of your unique beauty. In this technological age, your everyday life is overwhelmed by the media. Flawless faces and perfect bodies saturate the TV screens and magazine covers. These all play an enormous role in influencing your own perceptions of yourselves. Comparing yourself to models and celebrities, it becomes more and more difficult to recognize your own genuine beauty. Pollutants, dirt and grime surround you every day and affect the life span and complexion of your skin. You need to fight back against the stimulated aging process and use Marie Ernst™.

Words of inspiration are written around your box of Marie Ernst™ soap to inspire you to be the fierce person you know you are, the person you are meant to be.

In addition: Marie Ernst™ strives to reignite self-confidence in you. In an effort to make you feel more comfortable in your own skin, we are here to provide those first steps: We have scientifically formulated a revolutionary body cleanser that exfoliates and moisturizes while at the same time providing you with a luxurious bathing experience. We believe you should step out of the bath or shower with renewed skin, and most importantly, renewed self-confidence.

Delivered just in time for Holiday Season. 

You should show her how much you care and give the woman in your life a unique gift she'll truly cherish!

Our Products

Marie Ernst™ offers an ingenious two-in-one product without limiting the benefits of either one. We believe that no sacrifices should be made when it comes to your skin’s health and youthful appearance, so we’ve made two fully developed and integrated products that work in conjunction with one another to give you a comprehensive body treatment. Mix and match any exfoliating bar with any emollient bar to customize your experience.

Marie Ernst™ Pumice Bars are made of 15% organic pumice instead of synthetic micro-beads to protect the skin as well as the environment. Pumice is a powder or dust derived from volcanic rock with unparalleled exfoliating properties. Pick between Walnut Shell & Pumice or Pumice in order to accomplish the following:

  • Scrub away your dead skin cells and open pores to reveal your more radiant complexion 
  • Improve your circulation and stimulate your natural skin cell regeneration 
  • Gently eliminate your dirt or impurities from your body’s skin

Moisturizing Bars come in six options: Nature’s Natural, Peppermint Forest, Patchouli Lavendula, Lemon Beebrush, Jasmine Citrus and Honey Vanilla. Made with clinically-proven hydrating ingredients like glycerin and all-natural moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and essential oils, all of the emollient bars will achieve the following:

  • Restore and replenish your skin’s natural PH balance 
  • Repair and protect your body from environmental damage 
  • Nourish your skin with superior hydration
Finally, upon reaching our goal, Marie Ernst™ will be releasing the NEW Back Scrubber Accessory designed to fit any Marie Ernst™ soap. Your skin rejuvenation has reached a new level of ease and comfort with the help of this long-handled shower accessory. Several other product designs are also planned for you in our future releases.

                                                                         

Our Goal

We hope to raise $10,000 in order to complete manufacturing and move forward with shipping and handling. With Marie Ernst™ all-natural soap on the market, consumers will achieve healthier, younger looking PH balanced skin. Even more, we believe that, by using Marie Ernst™ luxury beauty bars, you'll be sure to rediscover your own self-confidence with every use. Please join us in this beauty revolution. Pledge Marie Ernst™ today.
                                                                                                             
     
  

                            

Risks and challenges

The main portion of the funds we raise will go towards our current purchase order for the three (3) soaps involved in this campaign. The rest of the money will be used for shipping and handling of the rewards-- which include stickers, packaging, shipping supplies and fees— all so we can deliver your reward(s) in a timely fashion.

Your risk in backing our campaign is minimal. Our company already ordered our soaps, and they are in queue to be pressed, packaged and shipped. If we make our campaign goal, we will deliver your reward(s) promptly upon receiving the shipment from our manufacturer Twincraft Skincare.

We give you our promise that we are committed to fulfilling and delivering your reward(s). We've been working hard over the past year to mitigate any and all risk in backing our campaign. Our products are fully developed and retail-ready, including all of our soap dyes, fragrances, UPC Codes and packaging.

Over the past year, we’ve been diligently working behind the scenes with our partner, Twincraft Skincare, to develop and manufacture our soaps. We chose to work with Twincraft Skincare, because they are one of the premier soap manufacturers in the U.S. that produce many brands that you already know and love We hope that our Marie Ernst™ brand will become a part of your daily lifestyle, too.

Marie Ernst™ is made up of a team of artists, engineers and designers who have past experience in designing and working with products used by millions of people. Our background from working in the advertising, health and beauty industries gives us a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to create and distribute a product with great design that will enhance your life.
