Handmade Eco Friendly Beeswax Products
Mersea Mudd Shack prides itself on using local natural produce to create beautiful handmade cosmetics and giftware.
We use local Beeswax to make our handpoured Beeswax Candles and Beeswax Melts.
Even our handmade soap uses local Beeswax and Honey - All natural beeswax products, from natures wax.
Each item is made with care and attention, creating a truly unique and thoughtful gift. Our bees wax is sourced from Mersea Island or surrounding villages, and is taken from the hives sustainably.
Our company was born from a desire to further reduce our plastic consumption as a family. We are always looking at ways to improve our packaging and manufacturing processes to be as eco friendly as possible. All our products are plastic free.
All our handmade items also free from any nasties: SLS free, Palm Oil free, Paraben free, and Cruelty free.
Based on Mersea Island, not far from Colchester in Essex, all our products are lovingly handmade and packaged on site.
Not only are the main ingredients in our beeswax products sourced on Mersea, but we also have a strict ‘No Mess – No Plastics’ policy, meaning all of our products are
manufactured and packaged without a drop of single-use plastic in sight. We are very keen to be as eco friendly as possible, and are working towards becoming completely zero-waste.
We have a ‘circular agreement’ with our ingredients supplier, meaning they take back our empty containers for them to be refilled, and all our products are packaged in either brown paper or aluminium tins.
IN CANDLES - Beeswax is a natural wax, and with the highest melting point of all the waxes, our beeswax candles burn longer than any other type.
They also clean the air, being a natural ioniser. Beeswax, when burnt, emits negative ions which neutralizes pollutants and reduces indoor pollution. They are also hypo-allergenic, with people suffering from asthma and allergies reporting fewer problems through using beeswax candles. These natural candles can also help you to sleep better!
IN COSMETICS - Beeswax makes soap bars harder, meaning they last longer. It also carries anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help
to fight chapped skin, and forms a protective barrier by sealing in moisture in our skin, without smothering it, and clogging up pores. Beeswax contains Vitamin E, and forms a protective layer on your skin to help keep in moisture. The perfect addition to your cosmetic product.
We use a wide range of high quality natural ingredients which are all ethically sourced. Ranging from our beloved beeswax and honey, to the other oils and butters which nourish and sooth the skin in our cosmetics. All our cosmetic products are beautifully balanced, meaning they re tough enough to get the job done, while remaining gentle on skin.
Shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, Jojoba oil, Kokum butter, Cocoa butter are among the many ingredients used, alongside essential oils and fragrance oils to leave you smelling beautiful.
Our scented candles are fragranced with essential oils, keep them natural.
