MIMITIKA's gossips


How do you actually make sunscreen ?

At MIMITIKA, the sun is a true passion. We spend a lot of time searching, sourcing, and researching to stay informed about the latest innovations in sun protection. Each product developed by MIMITIKA is unique, created by our team, and you won't find it anywhere else.

To develop a formula, we establish a very precise specification that outlines the desired ingredients and what we do not want to use. We determine the texture we aim for and the desired fragrance. We then work closely with French laboratories to develop a formula that best meets your needs.

Once we are satisfied with the formula, it undergoes a series of rigorous tests to ensure its effectiveness and safety.

Our goal is to provide high-quality sun protection products that not only meet your expectations but also prioritise your skin's health and well-being

What are your astrological signs?

Well then, in the team, we have Aries, Cancers, a Leo, a Scorpio, a Sagittarius, and an Aquarius. And everything is going very well, regardless of the phase of the moon.

Do you stay under a blanket during winter?

Yes, and we hibernate!

Ahaha, no, actually, we work a lot. We prepare for the "sunscreen season," our busiest period of the year, which for us is from April to August. We manufacture products, think about an editorial strategy (yes, it may not sound glamorous, huh?), we reach out to our retail partners telling them "hey there, it's time to stock up," but we also ask for their feedback, how selling our products directly is going for them (we don't have that experience ourselves -smiling through tears-), we visit our beloved laboratories, we assess, we readjust... And then we hibernate while waiting for the sun to come out.

Where are you based?

In Bordeaux, right near Place Gambetta, you see?

At Mimitika, are there only women?

Yes, we are all women, and no, we don't spend our time arguing with each other. But we would be thrilled to work with one or more men too !

Where does the name Mimitika come from?

From Audrey's mind. Ask her ;)
