mESMeRICK have over thirty years experience in the cosmetology field.

We understand everyone's skin is different and we have returned to nature and created a simple soap made with Goats Milk without colour or fragrance.

Own a hotel, Guesthouse or Bed and Breakfast ? Run a gift shop or visitor attraction ? We can create a guest soap or souvenir soap especially to your own requirements - YOU choose the shape, colour, fragrance and additives, or ask us about unique wedding favours or personalised gifts.

 MOST IMPORTANTLY ...all our products are CERTIFIED safe.

We are FULLY COMPLIANT with REGULATION (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 30 November 2009 on Cosmetic Products that came into force in July 2013 and hold UPDATED safety certificates assessed and approved by a government-authorised chemist.  

We hold Safety Data Sheets and lists of allergens for each and every ingredient we use.

All of our soaps have been certified for production by an independent analytical chemist. They all conform to the relevant EU Directives for Cosmetic Products.

Absolutely NO products in our range contain animal fats, nor have they been tested on, or been involved with cruelty to animals.

Our Olive oils are ethically sourced and sustainable.

Industrially / chemically produced soap is exactly that - soap produced on a mass scale, and using economically priced ingredients and harsh chemicals. However it becomes necessary to make this manufacture easier and make the soap have a very long shelf life by adding skin irritating preservatives. We only use high-quality ingredients in our soap:

  Coconut Oil, Mango Butter, Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter to give it a rich, luxurious, moisturising lather.

Only certified and approved Pure Essential Oils for their wonderful aromatic scents.

A range of natural and approved pigments for colour.

If you are prone to allergies or skin conditions or if you just have a dry or sensitive skin some of the additives in factory made soap may make your condition worse. Glycerine is naturally lost in this method of manufacture and Glycerine is a natural moisturiser for the skin. Our hand-made soaps retain all their Glycerine. For those with allergies please see our health advice pages.

Some of our soaps are purely organic. Using Soil Associaton certified organically produced ingredients protects your skin from synthetic fertilisers, pesticides, insecticides, fungicides and preservatives.  It also ensures that you avoid such undesirable substances as sodium laureth sulphates or Genetically Modified ingredients.  The health and beauty standards of the Soil Association are the highest in the world and its logo is your guarantee of purity.

 

THE LEGAL BIT

Legislation from the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on the regulation on making and distributing cosmetic products came into effect on 11th July 2013.  

 

From 11 July 2013, the new Regulation will replace the “Cosmetics Directive” which until now ensured that products circulate freely whilst guaranteeing a high level of protection for consumers. The provisions of the Regulation aim at ensuring that consumers’ health is protected and that they are well informed by monitoring the composition and labelling of products. The Regulation also provides for the assessment of product safety and the prohibition of animal testing.

 

All our soaps and products are personally handmade in the Scottish Borders using the finest of ingredients, carefully chosen botanical additives and only the highest quality fragrance oils.
