Miiko Skin Co is a product line that developed from Seeds of Change Workshops. Seeds of Change provides workshops on do-it-yourself skincare and household cleaning products, while Miiko Skin Co makes safer skincare products using homemade recipes.
Instead of choosing complex fancy recipes, we focus on using simple recipes and sourcing the best ingredients from suppliers in British Columbia. We include the supplier and their location on our product label, so our customers can see where our ingredients are coming from and the quality we seek in our products.
As a business, we hope to encourage people to read the ingredients on every skincare product. When you read our ingredients, you will recognize most of them as awesome foods and oils from around the kitchen.
Miiko Skin Co is cultivating the idea that our skin is an absorptive organ, and we should be feeding it fresh, local, food.
Shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste, skincare, cosmetics, hair products, deodorant, and perfume are all products we may come in contact with before we even have our breakfast. Many of the ingredients in these products are formulated in a lab to penetrate into the skin's tissue and consequently into our bodies. Parabens (the most common preservative in commercial cosmetics and skincare) are so common that 99% of Canadians had it in their urine in a 2014/2015 Canadian Health Measures Survey. (1)Read More
