Coconut oil is one of the BEST naturally used cosmetic ingredients. It’s naturally antibacterial & anti-fungal, and coconut oil for skin & hair is an excellent moisturiser. More than that, coconut oil is rich in many proteins. These proteins keep skin healthy and rejuvenated, both internally and externally. Proteins also contribute to cellular health and tissue repair. For any damaged cells on or near the skin, a healthy flow of proteins guarantees their replacement at a faster rate.


Key natural exfoliators for the skin that have been proven to help with cell regeneration. Brown and raw sugars contain minerals such as potassium, iron and magnesium. Even when not ingested, your body can still benefit from these minerals. In particular, raw sugar also reduces skin pigmentation by forcing melanin out of skin cells through the lymphatic system, and then out of the body. Raw sugar is also considered an antioxidant due to its ability to protect cells from damage caused by oxygen and free radicals.


At MandaMade, we use raw almonds that are crushed down until they become butter, releasing their oils. The natural pieces of broken down almonds act as additional exfoliators for the skin.

Raw Cacao blocks harmful free radicals in the body. It also protects the body from premature ageing. Raw cacao contains vitamin C and magnesium, which help in protecting the skin and keeping it healthy. Additionally, it also heals wounds and scars quickly.

Above all, it causes skin to GLOW leaving you feeling naturally beautiful and radiant.


Unlike commercial moisturizers that can clog pores and exacerbate current skin conditions, olive oil penetrates deeply into the skin while providing an all-natural cleansing effect.

Rose Petals powder’s incredible popularity in skin care is its ability to balance the skin.  It boasts astringent, and anti-bacterial properties but does not strip the skin of moisture.  Instead, Rose products can help to regulate sebum, skin’s natural barrier and lubricant.  Rose Petal Powder is a relatively economic way to incorporate the powers of Rose into your skin care routine.  The powdered petals contain traces of oil, and integral plant components, making it a wonderful ingredient for masks, scrubs, and daily facial cleansers.
