As 2020 comes to an end, we would like to thank our wonderful customers for your amazing support during this difficult year, and wish you peace and happiness as we move into 2021. At Mokosh, we often talk about what our customers think of our products, but did you know that some of the biggest Mokosh fans are our own staff? The Mokosh team includes people of mixed ages and different skin types, but one thing they have in common is that they are extremely discerning about what they put on their skin! Because they work with the products every day, they know the products inside out, and all their secrets, so we thought we’d ask a few of them to tell us about their favourites.
Here is what they had to say!
When you buy from us online, chances are Kate will be the amazing human who carefully packs your order, writes the accompanying hand-written note, and makes sure the delivery goes smoothly. Kate is also wonderfully organised and keeps all our quality control systems ticking along perfectly. We couldn’t do without her!
“If I had to pick my all time favourite Mokosh product it would have to be the Makeup Remover & Cleansing Oil. As someone with VERY oily skin I was originally sceptical about adding oils into my skincare routine (I wanted less oil on my face not more!). But I couldn’t have been more wrong. As a makeup remover this product effortlessly dissolves all my makeup and sunscreen without stripping my skin, and as a deeper oil cleanse it helps keep my breakouts at bay and leaves my skin soft and supple. I’m a real sucker for multi-purpose products that keep the overall clutter to a minimum and I couldn’t recommend this product enough!”
Leah is relatively new to the team and has been through a major learning curve as she comes to grips with learning all about our manufacturing systems. Although she’s new to Mokosh, she has been using our products for many years and was already a big fan of the products when she joined us (yay!).
“My favourite Mokosh product would have to be the Sesame & Frankincense Body Oil, hands down.
It was first given to me as a gift from a friend who told me that I should use it every day as a body moisturiser for protection against breast cancer. Whilst there is no solid scientific evidence to prove this, I have always known that Frankincense (one of the key fragrant ingredients in this product) has been used for spiritual and medicinal healing by many cultures for thousands of years. There was a reason why this sacred oil was carried from the East by three wise men and given as a gift to a King.
I love this product and as I consider my body to be a sacred vessel (as all women should), I have used it every day for several years now as part of my morning ritual. The beautiful blend of exotic oils leaves my skin feeling nourished and the beautiful aroma gives me grounding and calmness ready to start my day. Not to mention it leaves my bathroom smelling delightful when I’m done.”
If you’ve used our products before, chances are that Jayne was in charge of manufacturing them, overseeing every stage of production from raw material to finished, packaged product. She is super-meticulous about quality and infuses her beautiful energy into every jar and bottle.
“Since becoming a part of Mokosh (some ten years ago!), there would be very few occasions when I have been without a daily dose of the luscious Rich Face Cream.
Having had a longterm interest in all things organic and Ayurvedic, I was at first drawn in by the sensual rose geranium and neem oils, a match made in exotic Indian heaven for me. My skin responded too. After years of too much beach and sun it needed deep nourishment. Within a week I could see and feel the difference.
With every application, I still get the uplifting rush of fragrance when I open the jar - and delight in another daily dose of my favourite Mokosh product!”
It’s so hard to choose a favourite from my Mokosh babies - each one was researched so carefully, and then nurtured over the years to its current state of near perfection. Singling one out is not a simple task!
“However I do have a soft spot for the Facial Cleanser, Exfoliator & Mask. This was one of the first products we formulated with reference to Ayurveda, which is all about balance - a philosophy I love because it applies to every aspect of our lives. This product delivers a revolutionary way to cleanse the face - it cleanses without detergents AND delivers a potent dose of antioxidants and other nutrients AND it performs a gentle exfoliation to the skin each day. What’s more, those nutrients are dormant until mixed with water - which means they come to life while they are in contact with your skin, something I think about each time I use it. I use it every day and follow with one of our moisturisers - I choose the one that feels right for my skin that day. But none feel quite right unless I have used the Facial Cleanser first. I can’t imagine being without it!”
