I have spent past 30 years travelling, changing places – moving alongwith my husband on his job with Armed Forces. His approaching retirement brought in the possible stability and rekindled the desire to do something of my own.
A creative and communicative person by nature, the routine off the shelf jobs are not my cup. Also, travelling has its own advantages – you meet new people, know them, learn their needs and see a possibility in helping them fulfill their dreams. We discussed, searched, at times with emotive intensity but the tunnel was never ending. I have been involved in reading a lot on natural/organic/handmade products. Natural cosmetics have always fascinated me. This generated the idea of Handmade Soaps. I tried small batches and the response from friends & family members was very encouraging. We did all our calculations to conclude that a small venture for the Handmade Soaps was a possibility –a start from home itself.
These long years with Armed Forces has confirmed that two qualities – honesty & integrity, pays good dividends. The quality of handmade soap is vastly true reflection of the ingredients used and the process adopted. This became our motto – PRODUCE QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY.
The idea of MYSCIRA generated from there – not here to do business but to provide truly quality product with absolute integrity. When intentions are good the support comes from unknown quarters. In my journey, from the beginning to this day, I have come across genuine, supporting and accommodating people from all the spheres of life who helped & supported the cause. They have been very appreciative to the fact that someone is ready to take such a plunge at this stage of life when you are actually looking forward for retired happiness.
Wish You All Join the Journey & Support the dream
Myscira’s aim, quite simply was to make pure & natural soaps accessible to everyone. Being passionate about reducing the amount of chemicals and synthetics people unwittingly rub into their skin, the idea of Myscira was born to create, share, evolve, educate, provide natural yummy soaps and skin products that not only nourish the body but also awaken the senses and promote self- awareness.
Myscira soaps are handcrafted with love. Using Myscira natural soap has a wealth of benefits from moisture to avoidance of chemicals. Soaps are created in small batches using a wide variety of natural oils, butters, essential oils, and botanicals.
Our soap ingredients include only food-grade vegetable plant oils of palm, coconut, olive, sesame, sunflower, castor, shea, and cocoa butter. Each oil is specific and purposeful and when combined works together to create a luxuriously lathering, moisturizing bar that will nourish and soften your skin. Scented products are created using the very finest skin-grade essential or natural fragrance oils. Colorants are from natural Clays, skin-safe ultra-marines, and micas from the earth. Various other food ingredients may be added to make each soap unique like oatmeal, herbs, flowers, fruits and spices for exfoliating, therapeutic, texture and visual appeal.
The great thing about using myscira soap is that our soaps are very mild and gently scented with essential oils. Our goal is not to over power your senses but to provide a nice subtle aromatherapy experience as you bathe or shower. Myscira soap will clean your skin with out drying it out and most people don’t have to use a moisturiser after showering with a natural bar of soap.
Our soaps have natural scents – essential oils and a few Natural plant based fragnance oils making it a great choice. They are 100% pure oils extracted from plant material, herbs, & flowers most often through steam distillation. Furthermore, the scents of pure essential oils fade much faster than those synthetic fragrance oils as they are volatile liquids so when exposed to air, many of the compounds that make up essential oils easily vaporize or evaporate into the air but however when showering with soap, they release a symphony of aromas. But Synthetic Fragrance oils are synthetically made chemical scent compounds which are drying and irritating to the skin.
Myscira soaps are skin friendly as it is based on simple, sustainable ingredients that invigorate your body and mind. Our handmade soap is free of toxic chemicals, preservatives and synthetic fragrances.
Organic soaps maybe be more expensive than their commercialized counterparts, but the countless benefits they provide to both the consumers and to the planet make them more than worth every penny.
Usage and Storage:
The way in which soap is formulated has an effect on shelf-life. Myscira handcrafted Soaps contain all natural fresh ingredients and no artificial preservatives or synthetic stabilizers to prolong shelf life. Although handmade soaps usually get better with age, we recommend using our soaps within 12 months of purchase.
Although the soaps will not be “spoiled” after that time, but you may notice some changes as natural soap ages. Our soap colors come from natural ingredients like spices, clays, botanicals, herbs, coffee, chocolate and even tomatoes and hence they fade over time because most of them are light sensitive. Since handcrafted soap has no chemical preservatives, it needs more care and diligence to ensure a long life. Keep away from water after bath/ wash for the bar to last long.
