About Us

The two founders of Stix Brands International, Angelo Mantenuto and Alice Yang, have been creating unique natural skincare products for many years, and have developed leading edge cosmetic skin care products that are timely and needed for today’s educated consumer.

They have discovered, through many years of research and testing, the ever-changing body care market, and in a world where personal care, hygiene and health have become top of mind for many people.

With thousands of chemicals in our water, air and in the foods we eat, it is no wonder illnesses have reached to its highest level in mankind’s history.

The creation of SoapStix, a 100% natural portable hand wash spray skincare product, was first introduced to the market 7 years ago and sold through fine health food stores.

The idea of people carrying around their own portable soap was unheard of, but in today’s world of the uncertainty of the spread of germs and chemical-based contaminated public soap dispensers (which are harmful to our health and the environment) it is now vital to protect ourselves. A simple idea that could change the way people take care of their health and prevent themselves from getting sick.

Hand washing is known to be the most effective way of killing germs. Portable protection when on-the-go and peace of mind for everyone of all ages.

During the past 2 years the research continued, and Angelo found the resources of Canada’s Maple trees and the health benefits of pure Maple Syrup. Not only is Maple Syrup a nutritious food, but it can also be infused in skincare products. After further testing, a liquid soap formulation was developed with the Maple ingredient. Alice used the Maple liquid wash and it worked wonders for her skin. It helped heal, moisturize and rejuvenate her skin and face. Realizing the amazing improvement to her skin, Alice suggested to develop a Maple Hand & Body Wash that everyone could use and get the same results.

The benefits of 100% natural minerals and nutrients found in the Maple Syrup has been infused in our PurMaple skincare line of Hand & Body Wash, now available to the market worldwide.

We are excited at the discovery of Canada’s first Maple Hand & Body Wash. It certainly is one of the best solutions for skin care of all types. It will help anyone with sensitive dry cracked skin and who may suffer from eczema and skin irritations.
