The founder of Mamoa, Mmoni had always struggled with sensitive skin, as did her daughter. Despite trying out many expensive products in the market, the struggle with their sensitive skin didn’t lessen any. Then one day, a friend suggested the use of essential oils to enhance the skincare products which was an experiment that worked wonders. It was then that Mmoni attained the passion to help others with sensitive skin and started sourcing for natural ingredients, essential oils, and other useful ingredients like Shea butter and coconut oil to develop skincare products that truly work.

The story of Marple is that of passion about skin and deep love for formulating influenced by indigenous wisdom and bio-science. After our son had suffered from eczema since birth, all the ointments given to him were causing multiple issues. We decided to try home remedies and Judith Moralo (co-founder) formulated a natural cream which worked wonderfully on his skin. After using this cream for a couple of months, we (Judith & Martin), decided to package this cream for commercial use. This was the birth of Marple Skincare which started with one cream (classic range), then a vintage range which was followed by our flagship range, équilibre, a natural even skin tone range, which launched in 2016. In addition to these range, Radiant+ was added to the family. Radiant+ is a unique formulation that uses Zinc and Kalahari Melon to treat acne problems. Since we started using our classic and vintage range on our son since 2013, there has never been a need to use any other product. Our équilibre range is dermatologically tested for sensitive skin types and has been proven to reduce the effects of rosacea.
