The Benefits of Handmade Cosmetics

Bela Gyarmati

There is an art within the process of creation that has been lost over the years. Whether that’s because our lives are busier or because big box stores have made every single product as processed and unconnected as possible, there is a lack of love and connection, which is something everyone needs right now more than ever.

That is why we are wanting to bring that connection and quality back. We want to provide quality, beauty, and love within every jar of cream, or hand wrapped bar of soap. Mermaid Cove wants to bring that connection to your cosmetic routine and to the universe. 

The benefits of handmade cosmetics are fulfilling on a sensual, spiritual, and emotional level. So we thought that on the day of our launch we would let you know about five benefits of using handmade cosmetics.

1. Eco-Friendly


Mermaid Cove works hard to produce earth-friendly bath and body products because we value our environment. By avoiding chemical-laden ingredients that are used by large manufacturers, we minimize the hazards that enter our ground, waterways, and drainage systems.


2. Avoid Irritation

Many conventionally produced skin care products contain lots of chemicals, additives and artificial colors.  These products can cause irritation and allergic reactions in some people.  Mermaid Cove strives to use ingredients in our products that work with the skin and not against it.


3. Save Your Nose

Artificial fragrances can contain chemicals that may cause headaches and other adverse reactions.  We use natural essential oils in our products which can even provide aromatherapy.  We recognize that some individuals are sensitive to essential oils and Mermaid Cove also offers products with paraben-free fragrance.  The choice is yours.

4. Gentler Over Time

Although some conventionally made products may seem to work better with the first try, over the long-term, the harmful chemicals that made your skin feel cleaner or your hair feel smoother may actually cause damage.  Mermaid Cove does not contain unnecessary fillers or chemicals that will cause irritation or damage over time.


5. Nourishes the Skin and Good for All Skin Types


Mermaid Cove uses ingredients like Vitamin E, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Palm Oil and Castor Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Oil, Avocado Oil and more, which are well known for helping the skin stay healthier. These ingredients are also full of antioxidants which can help ward off early signs of aging, or simply keep the skin looking good.  These ingredients have elements similar to the cellular composition of our body, which promotes excellent results in the medium to long term.  Additionally, these products are good for men as well as women.


All love.
