I discovered Miessence Certified Organic Skin Care via my relationship with Tomoson.com. Since I care about what I put on my skin, especially with my very sensitive skin, I wanted to reach out to them and learn more about their line of skin care products. When you add a “certified organic” label to your products you need to be able to back up that claim. You can’t just slap it on a label and call it “organic” if your products are not truly certified. I discovered that the Miessence line of skin care products are FOOD standard certified organic (by ACO – Australian Certified Organic), they meet the food standard for organic, this is not a deceptive label on a personal care product that says “organic”. These products contain (excluding water and salt) at least 95% organically produced agricultural ingredients. The remaining ingredients (up to 5%) can be non-agricultural substances or non-organically produced agricultural ingredients, with strict processing criteria, (eg. absolutely no GMOs or synthetic chemicals). ACO is Australia’s largest certifier for organic and biodynamic produce and has over 1500 operators within its certification system. Read more about their certification process here.
I started poking around Miessence’s website and was pretty impressed with the ingredients list from each of the products. For instance, here are the ingredients for Miessence’s Ambrosia Essence, which is one of three serums available:
certified organic calophyllum inophyllum (tamanu) nut oil, certified organic helichrysum italicum (immortelle) flower essential oil, certified organic rosa rubiginosa (rosehip) seed oil, certified organic citrus aurantium ssp amara (neroli) essential oil, certified organic pogostemon cablin (patchouli) essential oil, certified organic calendula officinalis flower C02 extract , daucus carota (carrot) CO2 extract , certified organic rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract.
I did receive a small sample of cleanser, conditioner and moisturizer. The samples only provided me with a 2-day application, not enough for me to give a proper review on how it worked with my skin. With that said, the information I am telling you about here, is just the essentials of what I learned from nosing around the website and researching the ingredients and information about the company as a whole.
While the Miessence Certified Organic Skin Care line is quite pricey, but the way I understand it is the products are very concentrated. They say that the products can sometimes last up to 6 months, depending on your personal use. The Skin Essentials Value Packs or the Trial Size Sets might be the way to go. You receive a full size bottle of Cleanser, Conditioner and Moisturizer. Prices start at $98.50 for the Skin Essentials Value Packs and $36.15 for the Trial Size Sets.
One of the things I liked about the website is that it tells you how many uses you will get from each product. For instance, the Trial Size Sets will give you about 20 applications.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
