If you were still looking for that rare clean beauty diamond, it got a name and it’s Mawena which means “Seen as I am” in manjaque, a langage from West Africa. The ideas and foundations of the brand were born during a trip to Mexico during which the founder, Helena Mendès learn beauty tips and tricks from the Maya community. It’s after a total immersion that Helena got this desire to bring to light this rich culture. Mawena gets its strength in different cultures to get the best of it, on human terms and on products development.
Indeed, the key word here is transparency. Clean formulas with precise ingredients from cooperatives which mobilizes partnerships with women all around the globe. At Mawena’s everything is in the small details! Each products is certified bio, vegan and cruelty free in order to keep the brand’s philosophy going. A strong commitment to support locals populations for a solidarity and social economy that we admire.
All the products provide a real sensory experience. Our favorite is with no doubt the cleansing gel Rose Papaya which is a delight: a delicious smell, the perfect texture to clean your skin gently yet deeply.
