About MarbleandMilkweed

On Etsy since 2010

analog beauty

Marble & Milkweed is inspired by the poetry inherent in any well-crafted thing. It's also brought to you by the cool, smooth skin of my clawfoot bathtub in the kitchen on Rivington Street, in New York City's Lower East Side, where the healing powers of water serve both as refuge and as muse.

The scientific name of milkweed's genus is Asclepius, named after the Greek god of medicine and healing. In Hindu mythology it is believed that the universe was created by a god drunk on the milky white juices of the plant. Today, milkweed is the primary source of food for the monarch butterfly. It's my hope that the precious nectars you'll find here will likewise nourish you into winged resplendence!

Disarmingly analog and made carefully by hand, Marble & Milkweed products are designed to simplify the way you care for yourself. Our deep commitment to sourcing organic and fair-trade ingredients sets us apart in a market increasingly crowded with so-called "all-natural" options. Our products are gentle and contain no harsh synthetic additives or artificial scents. We are conscious of the impact our packaging has on the environment and strive to reduce unnecessary packaging. We use glass bottles and jars, and compostable paper packaging, all of which can have lives beyond their first use. Taking good care of yourself truly goes hand in hand with caring for the planet.

Marble & Milkweed is proud to support the work of Butterfly Project NYC with a portion of our profits.

Thank you for shopping at Marble & Milkweed! We hope that our handcrafted skin care elixirs inspire you to take exquisite care of yourself. We use only the finest raw materials, including organic cold-pressed oils, organic botanicals and local honey and beeswax.

Our products are free of chemical additives and synthetic scents. They are designed to harness the power of nature to give you a glow without the worrisome ingredients that commercial skin care often contains.

We make it a priority to package our products using recyclable and reusable glass jars & bottles and compostable paperboard tubes, in order to reduce packaging waste, and we ship using recycled cardboard boxes and CareMail eco-friendly products. We hope that you'll feel inspired to reuse your bottles and jars after they're empty. Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Additional policies and FAQs
It is important for you to be aware of your skin's sensitivities before using any of our products. Though we use only gentle and natural ingredients, please proceed with caution if you are at all concerned about your skin's reaction. Those who are pregnant or nursing should consult their doctor before using any product containing essential oils. Our products and the information on these pages are not intended to treat, cure, prevent or diagnose any medical condition and are not a substitute for the medical advice of a trained physician.

Also, please note: because our honey-based items do not contain any preservatives other than the naturally preservative qualities of honey (which only work in a dry environment), they may require a little extra mindfulness from the user. To keep your products sprightly, please dip into them with a clean spoon and avoid introducing moisture into the jars. With a little tender care, they will last until you use them up! Lip balms and other balms have a shelf life of about a year.

Please stay in touch! If you have any questions please drop us a note.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 5 years.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
