Hi there! We are Merci Handy.
We create practical and colourful every day cosmetics using clean ingredients and rainbow extracts.
Who we are
At Merci Handy, we think that life is rich, beautiful and surprising, but that our often too serious* everyday lives can sometimes prevent us from seeing the colours in it.
*Here are a few examples of way too serious everyday things : Jean-Michel from accounting making jokes; the sentence «we need to find a new disruptive concept to reach a good sell out dynamic again»; the rules of curling.
Our mission? (To be pronounced in a very serious tone of voice) Imagining this colourful parallel world that just bursts into your everyday life and that you can carry around with you, bringing colours where you wouldn’t expect them and turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
(We also like making jokes.)
Our product philosophy
Scents extracted from the purest rainbows
Flower Power, Hello Sunshine, Namaste... We design each of our scents as a complete universe, and we develop them with the best « Noses » from Grasse, in the south of France (Earth).
Vegan & Cruelty Free
No kittens, alpacas, flying squirrels, otters, lemurs or naked mole-rats, nor any direct or indirect by-products from these cuties are ever used in the making of our products. Unicorn tears (of laughter) are the only hairy creature-made ingredient that we use in our formulas, but our ancestral extraction process -which consists in making jokes until said Unicorn cries with laughter has been certified vegan and cruelty-free by the HIAPACC (the High Intergalactic Authority for the Protection of Animals and Celestial Creatures).
For our formulas, we chose non-controversial ingredients, of natural origin whenever possible (coconut oil, aloe vera, allantoin...). And since we are not all as learned as Jean Michel (our chemist), we asked him to help us explain each ingredient in very simple terms, so that our formulas no longer hold any secrets for you.
For every single one of our products, we try to come up with the most extraordinary textures: a hand cream creamier than an intergalactic cloud, a Slime shower jelly glittered with stardust, etc.
