Beauty Banks

Mesen is proud to support Beauty Banks, a people-powered, grassroots movement distributing unused toiletries to charitable organisations throughout Britain.

Simply put, Beauty Banks believe that being clean is a basic human right, not a luxury or privilege. They support those who live in poverty by providing registered charities such as food banks, homeless shelters, refuges, & high schools with personal care & hygiene products.

Beauty Banks believes in giving a hand up, not a handout – and we all have the right to be clean because our physical health, mental health and wellbeing depends on it.

We will donate 2.5% of each sale to Beauty Banks, to help them in their mission to help end hygiene shaming.

  • via Go Fund Me here – www.gofundme.com/f/endhygieneshaming
