Our Story

Clean water and hygiene for everyone, everywhere

Our Story
Clean water and hygiene for all

We believe everyone in the world should have access to a source of clean water and hygiene. That's why we donate a fixed amount for every product sold to support clean water projects worldwide. We offer natural
mineral water, natural care products and luxurious home fragrances.

In addition to our social mission, we believe it is important to develop products that positively affect your well-being; products that are caring, look beautiful, smell great and just make you feel good. We develop our products with attention to detail and we use lots of natural ingredients in our care products. Timelessness and sustainability are important values within our organization and have led us to focus on refill solutions within our product portfolio.

"Having access to clean water will empower people to take control of their lives and build their own future."

How it began

Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is life. Access to a clean source is the basis of health and security. This is not yet a reality for everyone however. Everyday, people all over the world, mostly children, experience the harmful and often fatal consequences of not having enough.

64/292 The human right to water and sanitation.

When in 2010 the United Nations declared access to clean drinking water and sanitation to be a human right, founder Patrick Munsters (r.) got inspired. Together with his business partner Carel Neuberg (l.) they started with Marie-Stella-Maris as a means to inspire people to consume more (socially) consciously and as a way to jointly contribute to improving access to clean drinking water worldwide.

Our products

With our products you can contribute and take care of your body on the inside and out. Marie-Stella-Maris mineral water hydrates internally, whilst our care products nourish, hydrate and protect the skin.

Caring products with timeless design.

We have a passion for design and get our inspiration from photography and art. Attention to detail guides everything we do: from product design to the interior of our brand store. And we work hard to make sure our products are effective ánd timeless, so they can become a functional design asset to any hotel, restaurant or home.

How it works

1. You buy & Contribute

For each Marie-Stella-Maris product you purchase, a fixed amount goes to clean drinking water projects. For our natural mineral water we calculate a contribution of 5 ct/L and for our care products a contribution of 5% of our turnover. 

2. We calculate & donate

Each month the total contribution of all the sold products is carefully calculated. This amount will be directly transferred to the Marie-Stella-Maris Foundation.

3. Together we can make a difference

Thanks to your contribution we can make a difference. With all supported clean drinking water projects we already provide over 35.000 people with access to clean drinking water.
