Brenda Mierzejewski is the Founder of Mizzi Cosmetics. Over the last several years, Mizzi has developed its imprint as a proudly and positively, women owned and operated manufacturing company, dedicated to the creation of small batch, artisanal, safe, smart, science –driven, and sublime lip care in ever so cool and calm, Connecticut.
Brenda has always focused on sustainably sourced, good for humans and good for the planet creations. Her work has not been the result of pure curiosity alone, but rather, like many other wonderful innovations, arrived out of necessity after her son, Brady’s, birth.
Brady had open heart surgery at 6 months old, and as a result suffered greatly from painful, dry, cracked lips without immediate, safe, or hydrating remedy available. While attending to him during his recovery, she noticed that he could barely open his mouth and was unable to share his adorable baby smile.
After quick and intense research stemming from genuine motherly love and a natural dose of panic, Brenda learned there was no ideal product on the market, safe enough for hydrating a baby’s lips, that didn’t have petroleum as a primary ingredient. Everything, in fact, had a petroleum base. She also knew that if ingested, petroleum could not be safely metabolized and then purged from the body. Luckily, years in pharma and chemistry work enabled her to create a better product for Brady.
She formulated a hand-made lip balm, to aid in his healing journey. LipLuxe, Mizzi’s signature balm’s future name, became the brainchild and beautiful end result of this difficult family experience.
Whether you are a mother to humans, to pets, or to the planet, we see you, because we are you.
And we are committed to the creation of safe, natural, healthy ingredient products, full of hydrating, harmonious antioxidants, that bring your wellness forward and add more joy to your life.
