About Our Name...The first thing people usually ask is “Where did the name Mermaid’s Purse come from?” I live on the coast and have been exposed to local marine biology throughout my adolescence. In college I studied aquatic and terrestrial ecology with pottery as an art elective. It was during this time I heard the term Mermaid’s Purse. A mermaid’s purse is a shark or skate egg sack. It is usually attached to kelp and is somewhat transparent, meaning you can shine a light through it and view the entire development of the aquatic species. When hatched, the egg sack washes ashore. Our company logo is a more artistic, yet similar, representation of a real Mermaid’s Purse.

Breaking news: 64,000 female green turtles were spotted in the waters surrounding Raine Island in Explore Tropical North Queensland, setting a record as the world’s largest green turtle gathering ever documented 🐢

The turtles were filmed during the December 2019 nesting season as they made their way ashore to lay their eggs on this turtle nesting hotspot in Visit Queensland, Australia's Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The footage was captured as part of the Raine Island Recovery Project which is restoring the world's largest green turtle nesting area for future generations.

Our Story

About Our Name...The first thing people usually ask is “Where did the name Mermaid’s Purse come from?” A mermaid’s purse is a shark or skate egg sack. It is usually attached to kelp and is somewhat transparent, meaning you can shine a light through it and view the entire development of the aquatic species. When hatched, the egg sack washes ashore.

I live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast with my Husband and three Children. In college I studied our local aquatic and terrestrial ecology with Ceramics and Pottery as an art elective. It was during this time I heard the term Mermaid’s Purse. Our logo is a more artistic, yet similar, representation of a real Mermaid’s Purse.

Soap making was something wonderful added into my life by my Grandmother who used to make soap with her Grandmother. (different ingredients back then)

Need to know how I can order your Organic Olive Lotion. Had some at your hotel Ocean Springs and just love it.
I always thought you should have added Potter! Hope y’all are doing well!
Hey there! How can I buy your tea tree chap stick? It is amazing and would love to get another few tubes! Thanks!
Hi Ladies, a bag with Lavender Belly Butter was left on my porch by mistake. I'm sure it belongs to someone in my neighborhood and wouldn't want them to miss out. The fragrance is wonderful. 116 LaBrance
I'm the singer/harmonica player from the Summerhouse event in Ridgeland a while back. We love your candle!
