MATSIMELA is a local South African brand that started from humble beginnings. Owned by Wayne and Olivia Nel, the brand was born out of their love for nature. The word Matsimela is an indigenous word meaning “roots” and originates from the language Sotho.

This perfectly fits in with their vision of cosmetics. They are pushing the brand to return to its roots and enrich others with their African heritage. The company’s philosophy is to offer a unique and constantly evolving product line that incorporates the highest quality natural ingredients selected for their beneficial properties.

In the process of sourcing & obtaining our raw materials, we strive to support Southern African companies that produce our beautiful African Ubuntu oils & extracts.
