Basic info via Erin Ely herself:
“miessence is formulated by Narelle Chenery, she started making the products at home. It’s manufactured in Australia: the products have been food standard certified organic since 2002, making miessence the world’s first extensive line of certified organic skin & body care. miessence is warehoused in Nevada for the US market and that’s the shipping location for all orders in the US.miessence dessert flower shampoo (normal to dry hair).”
I’m a guy. I’m an eco guy. So there’s two things I care about, when it comes to my bathroom and what I put on my body.
> Is it organic?
(You know, skin absorbs close to 90% of what you put on it, and since bodycare products bypass our liver, toxins are particularly damagins when they pass through the skin). Within this category, I look for signs of mindfulness generally: no animal testing, fair trade sourcing, minimal shipping, and eco-responsible packaging. miessence is superlative in all but the last two categories.
> And, does it work?
So I’ll keep my reviews simple, below:
> The only one I didn’t love was the shampoo, which is so watery that it’s hard to get from your hand to your head.
> Two thumbs up. Really works, makes my hair silky smooth: miessence shine herbal hair conditioner (all types).
> My hair is fine, thank you. If it weren’t, I’d use happily. miessence certified organic protect B-5 hair repair.
> Don’t use the stuff, but organic hair control stuff is a rarer sight than Sarah Palin on a bicycle: miessence certified organic shape styling gel.
> Warning, gents: not for your cereal. Good stuff: miessence certified organic tropicana body milk.
> Lovely: miessence mint toothpaste.
If I were the kind of person who cared about cleanser, I’d use this. > miessence certified organic balancing cleanser.
Especially here in Colorado, all about the moisturizer. Dig it. > miessence certified organic balancing moisturizer.
Overall, one of the best companies I’ve reviewed. Will be happy to use their products for years to come.
