MERIDEN, CT (WFSB) -

A Connecticut woman is hitting the big time thanks to the Primetime Emmy Awards.

Her small business will soon be catching the eye of some Hollywood A-listers.

Navine Acevedo said she can’t believe 100 bars of her handmade soap will be in a pre-Emmy swag bag.

The bags will be handed out before the Emmys this month, after she was discovered on Instagram by a representative from the Artisan Group, an organization that introduces Hollywood stars to handcrafted goods.

"She gets the best of the best and she contacted me and said ‘we love your products, would you consider doing this’,” Acevedo said, and added that she said “Yes!”

Acevedo started Brosily Bath and Body in her kitchen less than two years ago.

It is named after her 8- and 5-year-old daughters who are the reason the company was created.

One had a skin problem and wanted all natural soaps to help heal the skin.

"They're food-grade ingredients as well, so everything, that was key for us, food-grade ingredients - stuff that you would eat nourishes you inside, you have to nourish the outside, so we do a lot of butters,” Acevedo said.

From mango and cocoa butter, to healing herbs like mint and lavender grown in her Connecticut garden, now heading to Hollywood to make a splash with the stars.

"A celebrity is using my soap, it gives that credibility and people go ‘wow, I want that, too’,” she said.
