We're Nelson and Soheila.

With a family that big, we have a knack for life hacks.
Developing Mondiah Essentials was just another result of seeking solutions for wellness.

Third pregnancy in progress and trying desperately to protect my belly skin from dryness and damage, as well as, the baby inside from harmful chemicals and toxins, I needed a good moisturizer. After trying many household name belly butters and lotions, I couldn't find anything that provided coverage, moisture, and a toxin free formula. So I got in the lab (better known as my kitchen) and came up with something. It took a lot of research, trial, error, science, and sweet souls sacrificing themselves to be my guinea pigs, but we came up with a winner! As the marketer for our product, Nelson used his network to spread the word. Once a few people that had been given samples came back offering to pay for more, Mondiah Essentials Total Body Butter was born.
Obviously, I was the first test subject and I said I'd put my own baby belly on blast just to share the difference this stuff made for me. My personal experience was the primary reason I chose to go through with this journey. This belly you see here has completed FOUR pregnancies (one of which carrying twins). One thing about me is my pregnancy stretch marks come in hyperpigmented. I went from what looks like claw marks on the hips, belly, and upper thighs after baby number TWO, to barely there blemishes while still preggo with baby number FIVE! It's been a master moisturizer for my entire family many of whom have eczema and say this works wonders for their skin.
The postpartum results seen in the top left pic were after six months' daily use of the top name brand belly balm on the market at the time. Bottom right are results after six months' daily belly targeted use of Mondiah Essentials Total Body Butter.
