MatsiMela is an indigenous word meaning "roots" and originates from the African language, Sotho. We are returning to our roots in all that we do to enrich you with our African Heritage.

Our philosophy is to create a unique and ever-evolving product range that incorporates the finest natural ingredients selected for their beneficial properties. We endeavour to source our ingredients through rural communities in our commitment to make South Africa a better place for all.

The MatsiMela retail environments are classically African & modern in look and feel. With stone clad walls, glass shelves and perspex-lit middle unit tables on which the product is displayed, our stores call for a unique interactive African experience in which you, the consumer can willingly participate.

The MatsiMela Home Spa range of products is constantly growing and developing with the ethos of caring for yourself and the environment.

MatsiMela Home Spa is a premier Body Care Range that was developed by Wayne and Olivia Nel in 2005. We are proudly 10 years old this year!

The MatsiMela Home Spa Range is inspired by their love for mother-nature and the fine botanical ingredients indigenous to Africa.

Give yourself some valuable time back with our special treatments and Be Well!
