our philosophy at melis...
We believe every woman
is beautiful and deserves the most incredible skin care.
It’s all about you. We offer you skin care as unique
as you are. We put our passion and creativity into creating the Melis
indulgences you have grown to love, and we continually strive for
excellence because you deserve to feel decadent with no compromise.
We don’t skimp on decadence. We believe
that the highest of quality is essential and we will
never compromise on the grade or inclusion levels of the
ingredients we use to create our luscious delights for
you. We use only the finest ingredients available on the
planet – and only the finest grades within those single
amazing ingredients. The highest quality of fruit
extracts, natural vegetable oils, pure exotic butters,
specialty clays from around the world and mineral-rich
salts from the Dead Sea are only a few of the luxurious
ingredients we use as an essential starting point - to
which we add a heaping dose of our creative talent,
skill and passion for what we do.
Melis is multi-sensory. It is not enough for
our products to be effective in a clinical or
perfunctory manner – your beauty ritual is also to
indulge, awaken your senses, ignite passion and invoke
your emotions. We take a handmade, artisanal approach to
beauty product formulating - resulting in skin care synesthesia at its finest. Our creative use of decadent
ingredient textures, alluring and natural colours
together with truly incredible aromas has set us apart
in the market. From proven efficacy at the original
formulary level to end user enjoyment, we’ve earned a
reputation for providing outstanding sensorial beauty
Fresh is better. The same principle behind
buying fresh food at the grocery store, as opposed to
buying processed food, applies to skin care. There is no
denying that fresh, natural body care is better and more
effective for your skin –and you deserve the absolute
best. Our products are handmade daily with artisanal
passion and precision to ensure that you receive your
“skin food” chock full of its nutritious vitamin and
minerals - ready for you to use at its maximum efficacy.
No unnecessary fillers and chemicals that are
added today to so many products only to increase
the manufacturer's profit. In contrast, when we
create a product at Melis our focus is on making the
best products possible for you. Every product you find
here at Melis is something that we personally love to
create and use, and that will nourish your skin - as
well as make you feel simply wonderful.
A firm commitment to eco-friendly and fair-trade
practices. We believe that our planet contains the
most fantastic ingredients to indulge with, and that it
will always do so provided we use them responsibly -
while wholly respecting all of the people who bring us
our ingredients as well as the processes utilized. At
Melis, elements such as sourcing fair trade ingredients
and biodegradable materials as well as using recyclable
beauty packaging that you can dispose of responsibly
once you are finished using your product, are all a part
of our respect for our earth and our fellow humans - as
well as an awareness we continually encourage in our
friends and customers.
Beauty without cruelty. At Melis we take a
zero tolerance approach to animal cruelty and we are
firmly opposed to animal testing (*we also do not
commission anyone to perform animal testing on our
behalf). We certify that we do not purchase raw
materials from vendors who perform animal testing and
that the few ingredients from animals that we use
(buttermilk and honey) are sourced from responsible
suppliers in our local community who abide by the same
We turn your passion for indulgence into an
improved quality of life for others. From our
product offerings to our core philosophy behind Melis,
we believe that every woman should feel alive, in tune
with her spirit and always strive for more. To that
effect we support charitable causes and forward-thinking
concepts that will make a difference in the lives and
self-esteem of women.
