I recently had the pleasure of trying out the Malée bath and body range created by the lovely Zeze Oriaikhi. Zeze is Nigerian-born but has most recently been living in London and has now moved to Johannesburg. Zeze dropped off some goodies for me to try and of course I was thrilled, firstly, I love discovering new South African products and secondly, who doesn’t enjoy a little pampering?!
The Malée range is 100% South African, produced and packaged here, made from natural ingredients and comes in a simple but chic packaging. I love the cotton drawstring bags, such a lovely touch. Malée’s first scent is Verdure which is a heavenly fresh scent with notes of mint, citrus and patchouli. There are more scents in the pipeline which I can’t wait to try too. My favourite product is definitely the Hydrating body creme, I’m absolutely in love with it!
It’s really inspiring to see someone as young as Zeze, being totally determined and driven and creating a beautiful new brand and product. You can find out more about Malée over on their website or hop over directly to their online store for some shopping!
