Brooklyn based Joann Montalto is the proud owner and Chief Creative Officer of Brooklyn Bar Body and Bath. The business was born in 2012 as a result of her desire to be an entrepreneur and allow her creativity to have an outlet so she launched a line of all natural handcrafted soaps.
Very soon after the line had grown to include products for the body & bath as well as for the home with her line of Signature STOKED Candles and home diffusers.
"When I create a new product or scent, I get my inspiration from the feedback and requests of my customers & friends and from some private time spent at the beach. My motto is that my products need to be "simple, fresh and clean with ingredients that everyone can relate to."
"Everything I create has to be something I would use myself, that I truly believe in and proudly stand by. It brings me great joy when people react positively to my products as it's important to me for them to have a luxurious experience with promising results!"
( Those who have met me can say I really do look like this photo...always happy and loving life! )
