About us

Two young people of Portuguese origin, with a love of natural products felt the need to create a more conscious line of personal hygiene in Mozambique. To this do, four young Mozambicans joined the team to create a bridge between knowledge and experience. The aim of this project was born with the desire to raise awareness among local communities about the consequences of chemicals and to develop a sustainable and affordable option, with benefits for the body and land. After more than three years the project is consolidated for the most basic hygiene product: 100% vegetable soap, biodegradable, sustainable and not tested on animals.
