Push reset. Your skin is about to go on a journey. On the quest for indigenous beauty secrets, I discovered this unique plant mask in 2005. The women of the Macua tribe of Northern Mozambique use the twigs of the mussiro tree to protect and beautify their skin. They grind the dry wood upon stones with a little water to make a mask which they wear all day. Often times they decorate their faces with beautiful designs. The botanical mask makes banishes blemishes as it makes the skin soft and glowing. The mask has been nearly impossible for me to get out of Mozambique all these years, but I have never forgotten. Today it is available in this one of a kind facial treatment mask. In its pure form there are no preservatives and the raw material is very concentrated. The mask can be worn on its own or can be added to other ingredients such as clay or yogurt to make a mask which is uniquely yours.
Kigelia Africana is also known as a sausage fruit. It is a power house for the skin offering after and before sun care. We've added kigelia Africana to mussiro for its skin toning benefits. Self-activate the mask by adding rose water, mineral water or even milk. Apply the mask to the skin like a face pack. The mask does tend to be naturally flaky but with the right methods can be made creamy. Putting into a blender may smooth the mask into a cream. Apply the mask to the skin and leave on as long as possible. The mask does not tend to irritate skin like most masks do. Experiment by making designs on the face such as flowers and tribal symbols. Embrace the ritual of the Macua women.
