MARE & ITIS
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 I 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.
