Meet Our Founder
Charlene Matambo, founder & CEO of Anasa Skin
Inspired by Africa
Anasa Skin is a proudly African luxury bath and body care product range made in South Africa. The company was started by Charlene Matambo in 2020, stemming from her passion for two things, namely Africa and natural skincare products.
Curated African Plants and Minerals
It all started when Charlene became more selective about what she was using on her skin, particularly her body. She threw herself into researching natural ingredients, discovering that natural oils and butters were miraculously effective in achieving healthy, nourished, and glowing skin. The best part? These ingredients are mainly indigenous to the African continent she loves and calls home. So, she began sourcing these raw ingredients, playing scientist by blending medleys at home to use on her own skin.
The effects on her skin’s health were noticeable, and friends and family soon enquired about what wonder products she was using. After gifting them with her creations, she realised that she could start a business and make these luxury skincare products available to more people. At the same time, she would be bringing effective yet natural ancient ingredients back to the forefront of our daily bath and body care routines.
Good for your Body and the Planet
We hope you enjoy every moment of using our products and the range of benefits we know they will give you. Here's to taking care of body, mind, and soul by embracing the Anasa life.
