Welcome to MAUA Skin: A celebration of Natural skincare!

What is MAUA?

I have started this blog to share my recipes, my knowledge and my passion for natural skincare. I don’t think natural skincare needs to be complicated or difficult. I think there is a lot of satisfaction in creating and using your own products especially when you know everything that went into the products!

My name is Mushana and I have very sensitive oily skin. I have been creating my own natural skincare formulations for the last 10 years. I was taught the basics from my mother and grandmother. At university I studied biology and I use that scientific understanding to inform all of my skincare formulations. MAUA means flower in Swahili and I chose this name for my blog because its a great metaphor for nature’s ability to fully nourish and protect our skin.

I’ll also be making video tutorials on Youtube and sharing tips via Instagram.

I’m so excited for you to join me on this journey!


Blessings & may your skin be nourished and moisturised always!
