MARE & ITIS SHOPPE

ABOUT

As an avid traveller and skin care enthusiast, it became difficult to find suitable skin and hair care products in various Asian countries.

This is when an idea sparked: Anele decided to make her own using all natural products! Countless hours of research led to a love for essential oils and natural products. Skin and hair thrives on natural oils.

Mare & Itis started as a travel website to illustrate how easy it was to travel on a budget. Since then Anele introduced a splash of all things aesthetic - lifestyle and design. Anele is an Earth Sciences major, an aspiring Interior Decorator and a lover of all things avocado! 

WHY WE LOVE THEM

Anele got in touch with me about my possible interest in her collection. Finding out that she was Durban based, all natural and Earth conscious was a bonus as her natural products filled a gap on the directory as far as good quality home products go.

She had me at zesty kitchen cleaner and since using that for the first time I have only grown fonder of her other products which I can tell she makes with all her love.

The more we can move in the local direction in terms of our product consumption the better and I am so excited to introduce you to this brand.

FAVOURITE FINDS FROM THEIR LATEST COLLECTION

zesty kitchen cleaner

R75

IN MY KITCHEN
500ml

Anele very kindly gifted a few of her products to me to try before coming onto the directory. This was fantastic as I got to try them before introducing them to you this month.

The minute I sprayed this I could smell the lemongrass and it is glorious. The kitchen smells fresh and clean and counters sparkle with just a few sprits.

I love that the ingredients are all natural and safe for my fur babies and us!

We are always so quick to put chemicals everywhere but I speak for myself when I say I have never done much research into how residue from strong detergents can effect you.

I believe there is a place for everything though, I'm not sure that this will replace EVERY kitchen cleaner under my sink, but it certainly will replace a few and is a pleasure to use.

The main ingredients include distilled water, decyl glucoside, lemongrass essential oil, apple cider vinegar, rosemary essential oil. 

Lemongrass Essential Oil is known to remove grease, grime, and gum! It also leaves your space smelling (and feeling) so fresh and so clean, clean!

sanitiser

R45

IN MY HANDBAG
50ml

The latest addition to the Mare & Itis range: the tea tree hand sanitiser!

You can purchase it with alcohol or with witch hazel instead. Refils are also available in 200ml/500ml which is wonderful!

Part of my little Mare & Itis gift pack, this has become one of my favourite things.

I take it EVERYWHERE! It's non-drying, perfect to sprits on after I have been into a public place, and small enough to keep neatly with me all the time.

I absolutely hate those sanitisers that make your hands feel gummy and this is not like that. Masks and Hand Sanitisers are as essential as our cell phones when we leave the house these days. This one is a goody and well priced.  

 

Packed with all the non-toxic goodness that leaves your hands feeling clean and moisturised. There is a good amount of vitamin E oil which ensures that the sanitiser does not leave your hands dry and bonus, the witch hazel does not contain alcohol but they have added aloe vera instead! What a win!

Argan Oil

R85

ON MY WISHLIST
100ml

Argan Oil comes from Morocco and it is used for culinary, cosmetic and medicinal applications!

It is certainly great for healthy hair and skin! Argan oil is a phenomenal carrier oil and this one like all of the Mare & Itis products, is responsibly sourced and pure! 

I have used Argan Oil in my hair many times as it's a great defrizzer and shine giver.

But I don't want this bottle of goodness for that.

Argan oil, falls in the middle of the spectrum in terms of oils —it's not too heavy, not too light—making it perfect to use on all skin types. It's packed with omega fatty acids, vitamin E, and linoleic acids, all of which work to lightly moisturize your skin, soften dry patches, and even reduce acne.

While I don't want to use this on my face, a few drops added to my daily moisturising routine would be a real treat and no doubt would have a wonderful effect on my skin.
