Miöja Natural And Holistic South African Skin Care

I fell for South African skin care Miöja’s packaging as soon as I saw it; the colours, so intense and gorgeously vibrant makes you take notice. However, the colours as I later found out not only serve to create standout packaging but have a deeper significance in distinguishing and highlighting the specific benefits of each range. Based in Kwa Zulu Natal, South Africa Miöja was started by Tasha Saha, a practicing Holistic Healer and as a chronic sufferer from eczema sought to create her own natural and holistic skincare range using the plants from her garden, simple ingredients that are not just known for their healing and restorative benefits on the outwards but inside the body too.

Based on the principle that our bodies are wonderful, highly evolved self-regulating systems and that the less we tamper with its natural balance the better, Miöja ‘s products are created to harnesses the energy of plant life. The South African skin care’s formulations are based on sustainably sourced natural and organic ingredients and see carefully selected herbal extracts, essential oils, minerals and flower remedies work to aid the body’s natural restorative and regenerative processes, treating a range of skin ailments from dry, blemished or damaged skin, as well as working to nourish and protect mature skins.
Understanding the connection between mind, body and soul; the African skin care formulations not only treat the skin but also work to help balance specific energies that contribute to our overall feelings of health and wellbeing. Ingredients known to be toxic to the body or environment are avoided, which means Miöja’s products contain no parabens, artificial fragrances or colours. Miöja’s products have been formulated to comply with Ecocert regulations for organic certification and are currently undergoing the certification process.

Wild Ginger, Pomegranate, Honeybush, Rosehip, Frankincense, Grapefruit, Fennel and Aloe are just some of the extracts used in products that include cleansers, renewal oils, lip treatments, masks and skin polishes across three core ranges:

Green range: Deeply calming and restorative works to heal and nourish mature and sensitive skins, and helps to enhance emotional resilience, optimism, courage and trust.

Orange Range: As the colour would suggest is energising and enlivening containing herbal extracts and citrus oils to stimulate circulation in dull and congested skin, boosts renewal of skin cells, and helps inspire creativity, enthusiasm and focus.

Violet Range: Formulated to detoxify and brighten the plant extracts used bring luminosity to the tone and texture of dry and mature skin through their intensive clarifying actions and helps to facilitate openness, awareness and integrity.

Miöja has also put together a selected range of products to create a Home Collection Spa for a luxuriously indulgent treat in the comfort of your home.

  • Eight years ago I started a blog as a place to document the interesting things I was discovering with regards to the design and creativity emerging from Africa. From the moment I created my first blog post little did I know where the journey would take me. Fast-forward to present day I have not only been privileged to witness the development of an industry, but to also have an active role in creating awareness about it.

On this journey, I have seen Africa’s design industry grow from a handful of names from a handful countries to a continent wide-reach. Some names that were just starting out have become internationally respected leaders in their field, whilst behind them, a new generation of names are coming up and claiming their place in the industry.

To say that it is an exciting time for African design and creativity would be a gross understatement! We are in a time of rapid advancement and unbridled creative expression, that is setting the foundations and standards for future generations to build on. And like many other emerging industries in Africa, creativity is opening up opportunities to those who are willing to seize them. And seizing them designers are!

And as Atelier Fifty Five begins a new chapter it is an opportunity for me to renew my commitment to supporting the development of the African design industry and helping those I work with and write about, and work with to fulfill their potential for creating world-class brands.
