Behind all By Ceci creations stands Cecilia. Growing up in Europe as part of an Italian-Bosnian family and having a chef as father, along with two Italian nonnas, creating with her own hands is a virtue she adopted from childhood. It first developed through art and theater, but after moving to America she found love in the ability to make her own things. While researching truly natural products for household and beauty, she started making her own soap, and fell in love with it, maybe because math and chemistry used to be her favorite subjects, or maybe because being able to create something useful and at the same time beautiful just seemed to speak to her essence. She is excited to go on this journey of owning her own business and bringing her joy for creation from her Brooklyn soap kitchen into your home.
Christopher stands behind this wonderful website and is the backbone of By Ceci. Without his love and support, ongoing encouragement, and his gift of always asking the right questions, By Ceci wouldn't exist. Cecilia is truly fortunate to be able to rely on his programming skills and being able to bring By Ceci up to the next business level. After hours of hard work as a software engineer, he still finds time and motivation to tweak and come up with new ideas in how to improve byceci.com and the user experience. Our costumers are always his first priority.

We would have not made it this far without the support and the love of our wonderful family and friends who stood with us from the first day and were our trusted testers. Without their excitement about our products, we would never have dreamed on walking this path. We can proudly say that our products never were and never will be tested on animals but instead were tested on them for over 3 years, perfecting every bar of soap, developing new scents, and keeping their suggestions and ideas in mind. And that is how we want to continue growing our company. We care about you and your wishes and ideas. We are always open for suggestions, we are not nameless or unreachable, and we love to engage in conversation. We see By Ceci as a partnership with our customers and we stand with our reputation and name behind our products. Feel free to contact us anytime.
