At Mira Showers, we have dedicated teams who are committed to New Product Development and the design of all our products. To delve deeper into some of our award-winning ranges, we will be exploring these more closely and this post will focus on the latest accessory, the Mira Switch showerhead.


The Mira Switch showerhead was launched in 2016 with a dermatological accreditation from the Skin Health Alliance – an ideal solution for those with sensitive skin! And we want to tell you all there is to know about this to know about this product.


The Mira Switch showerhead has been designed to deliver a delightfully intuitive user experience which enhances the everyday enjoyment of showering. We’ve ergonomically designed the Mira Switch showerhead for improved water coverage and comfortable handling. A seamlessly integrated button enables easy switching between spray modes and prevents discomfort or damage to fingers and nails.


All of our products take part in a compulsory, stringent testing process and, as part of this, we have an on-site ‘consumer experience lab’ - a typical domestic bathroom with more showers – in which 100 people tested the Mira Switch showerhead and fed back the results. 

Our partnership with the Skin Health Alliance meant that they helped us create a questionnaire to ensure we could draw tangible results on the efficiency of the shower spray. Through this testing, we found that the ‘Soothe’ spray is twice as gentle as the ‘Saturate’ rain spray, and 8 out of 10 people would recommend the Soothe spray to users with sensitive skin. Based on this evidence, the Skin Health Alliance were happy to award the Mira Switch showerhead with the Skin Health Alliance dermatological accreditation.

Unique spray experiences

Our innovative showerhead includes four unique spray experiences and the switch button technology gives a quick and efficient switch mode change - providing users with an intuitive user experience, enhancing the everyday enjoyment of showering.

  • Saturate – a fully drenching spray
  • Stimulate – concentrated energising spray
  • Soothe – soft spray for sensitive skin
  • Soak – fine soaking water spray
