Mesmerick Handmade Luxury
mESMeRICK, artisan soaps that are handmade and cut in the Scottish Borders, using the finest of ingredients, carefully chosen botanical additives and only the highest quality fragrance oils ( where used). mESMeRICK - made with care and suitable for all skin types
WE NOW ONLY USE COSMETIC GRADE ECOWRAP PAPER
We have changed our policy from using plastic to wrap our soaps and we now only use EcoWrap paper, the environmentally-friendly way to package our handmade soaps. Each sheet of greaseproof EcoWrap is made of recycled paper, and is free from petrochemicals. The sheets are completely biodegradable, and breathable and allows the scent of our soaps to be enjoyed without having to unwrap them.
WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE NO PRICE INCREASES FOR THE FIFTH YEAR !
Nowadays more and more people care what they put INTO their bodies, so why not take care of what we apply TO our bodies ?
We are dedicated to natural products and demand that most of our soaps are free from any harsh Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) which is a chemical additive manufacturers use to ensure a good lather or foam - unfortunately this is also a skin irritant. We have a range of soaps especially created to moisturize the skin made using Olive Oil - and the rich luxury of Mango Butter, Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter.

We are proud that our handmade soaps fully comply with all legislation governing the manufacture of cosmetics in the UK and Europe.
Our soap ingredients are independently lab tested and certified as safe for use by a Government Approved Analytical Chemist . Our labels use the correct naming standards. ALL our products are SLS FREE, hand made, hand cut, hand wrapped and hand labelled - not all handmade soap sold on the open market can boast this.
SUITABLE FOR VEGANS*
all our products contain vegetable sourced gelatine (where used)
*with the exception of our Goats Milk Soap which does contain Goats Milk.
What's Making the News?
We understand that everyone’s skin is different and we have returned to nature and created a simple soap made with Goats Milk without colour or fragrance. Goats Milk has long been held to have soothing and healing properties for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Our tests and market research have indicated that sufferers with skin disorders can use our Goats Milk soap with no adverse effects and in some cases beneficially.
PARABEN FREE PRODUCTS
We strive for Paraben Free Products . Parabens are a preservative but they are becoming increasingly controversial because they have been found in breast cancer tumours and they can "adversely affect the secretion of testosterone and the function of the male reproductive system"
Handmade soaps, bath products, jewellery, knitted crochetted and sewn products, made with care and attention to detail for your pleasure.
In some of soaps we use 100% ORGANIC OILS, which have been certified by the Soil Association. These soaps are FREE from SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, SLS, Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate and MPG, Mono Propylene Glycol.
The benefits of using Organic Oils are many fold :
- there are no MPG or surfactants.
- they contain the natural glycerine from the organic oils.
-they are highly moisturising and VERY gentle on the skin.
-it produces a firm, long lasting bar and works beautifully with essential oils, where all of the scent is retained.
Furthermore it is kind to the environment, ensuring that no chemical fertilisers or pesticides are used in the growing of crops for the production of ingredients.
The Soil Association Organic Certification ensures the integrity of this product with regard to the environmental impact of their farming and the long term sustainability of the land and crops.

SLS FREE SHAMPOO BARS
If you have an itchy or flaky scalp one of the simplest things you can try is washing your hair with an SLS Free Shampoo.
mESMeRICK offers a range of SLS-free solid shampoo bars . Instead of SLS, we use gentler foaming agents which are less likely to cause scalp problems. We also ensure that the rest of the ingredients which go into our shampoos are mild, natural and organic wherever possible. Solid Bars are more convenient when you are travelling, and are just something completely different to use at home on a daily basis. They give a fine creamy lather and of course you could use them as an all over body wash
