If you look at the statistics, consumers are starting to move away from synthetic products and going back to natural, pure and organic products – the way nature intended them to be. Fortunately, nature offers various amazing ingredients. Unfortunately, big companies will do anything to find a way to make a quick dollar. The “organic revolution” and the demand for organic products is growing at a fast pace around the world. We now see the words organic, pure and natural everywhere. What does that mean? It means many companies take advantage of trusting consumers and use those words primarily for marketing purposes. This is called “Greenwashing”. Everyone has their own definition of hypoallergenic, natural, pure, and organic – unless it is a CERTIFIED ORGANIC product (certified by a trustworthy company and has the logo to prove it). Many chemicals are also hidden in various ingredients such as; GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, fluoride and chlorine in water (or aqua, which is the base ingredient or filler used in most products – Miessence uses Organic Aloe).
Miessence has a pocket size “Smart Shopper’s Guide to Cosmetic Toxins” to help you avoid some of the most common household and cosmetic toxins;

You do not have to memorize all the toxins and chemicals that could potentially harm you and your family! Many organisations are on our side! The Environmental Working Group is constantly updating their “Skin Deep” database. EWG is an ongoing project. With technology nowadays, we also have various apps that can help us by scanning products. For example, the app “THINK DIRTY” also helps you determine which products are truly pure and organic.
In addition to being transparent and honest, Miessence has amazing values. Before making you next purchase, consider this (source: Miessence Website);
Miessence takes its responsibility to the planet seriously.
That’s why our commitment to sustainable business practices goes beyond sourcing the world’s finest certified organic products. Our commitment infuses everything we do, from manufacturing, packing, transportation and promotion.
Carbon Negative Business Practices
In addition to producing the world’s finest certified organic nutritional, health and skincare products, Miessence is also committed to going a step beyond 100% carbon neutral and going carbon negative by offsetting a further 10% beyond calculated emissions. Miessence products are shipped all over the globe to members of our independent distributor network.
Since 2006, we have engaged Greenfleet, a non-profit, independent organisation to calculate our freight emissions and in turn provide the service of planting trees on our behalf to offset our impact on the environment. Science shows that 17 mixed native species of trees help create a forest. As they grow, the trees absorb greenhouse gases, as well as tackle soil salinity, improve water quality and provide habitat for native species.
Miessence is pleased to use premium renewable electricity through the grid. This is made possible through the support of our local energy provider by allowing us to offset 100% to wind energy. By using electric forklifts and machinery run on compressors that all run off this green renewable energy, we can claim zero emissions from our manufacturing.
We are delighted to have our business practices audited by GreenBizCheck – and receive the World Leadership certification.
Certification is verified and audited by Bureau Veritas – the world’s largest certification provider with over 44,000 staff and 400,000 corporate clients.
All the Miessence team is committed to recycling and are conscientious in the use of waste, recycled materials and electricity. We offset our plant and offices, as well as our events and promotional tours with tree planting to make our day to day business activity carbon neutral.
In hope that all the above information will help you make your next purchase as pure, natural and fresh as you expect it to be!
Until next time!
