Weather always has a huge effect on our skin. The winter months bring harsh, cold conditions that can irritate the skin on our face and hands. The best thing to do is to find a range of body-care products that not only suit your skin type but also nourish your skin so that it can become strong and supple.
MatsiMela Home Spa is a company that provides high-quality body-care products. Developed by husband and wife team Wayne and Olivia Nel, the MatsiMela Home Spa Range is inspired by their love for the botanical ingredients indigenous to Africa. The word ‘MatsiMela’ means ‘roots’ in Sotho, and this is indicative of the company’s mission to return to their roots in order to enrich their African heritage.
Based in Kya Sands, South Africa, the beauty products are locally produced and follow the strictest quality controls to maintain brand control and quality. By sourcing natural ingredients from the surrounding communities, MatsiMela supports and uplifts community projects across the country.
Pop into one of the stores, salons or spas across South Africa and choose from a wide variety of beautiful gifts. Gift vouchers are also available. The MatsiMela Home Spa range suits various skin types and consists of a number of delicious-smelling products.
