Mbiri Natural Skincare is a 100% natural skincare range that was launched in Namibia in 2015. Mbiri aims to provide high quality products while supporting African communities. Mbiri does this by sourcing raw ingredients from community owned enterprises that harvest and process oils in Namibia. The focus ingredient is Namibian Myrrh essential oil. Namibian Myrrh resin comes from the Commiphora wildii plant which grows in the north western regions of Namibia. This plant, which is traditionally called Omumbiri, is endemic to this region of Namibia and is found nowhere else in the world! During the dry seasons this plant exudes a golden coloured resin which has been used as a perfume ingredient by the Himba women for centuries. The women now commercially harvest this resin and earn an income. The resin is processed at a community owned facility in Opuwo and Mbiri buys the oil directly from this community enterprise and uses it all the products. Namibian Myrrh essential oil is full of anti-oxidants and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Mbiri also uses Marula oil and Kalahari Melon seed oil in all its products. Mbiri is endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty and is registered with The Vegan Society. Mbiri is more than just a beautiful skincare range, it is a story of Africa!
