All of our body & soap products are carefully formulated adhering to strict international standards. We have two soap processes, vegetable based soaps as well as glycerine soap. Our raw materials are carefully selected from reputed suppliers and fragrances & essential oils are supplied from internationally acclaimed fragrance houses. So the end result is a product that is as appealing to the eye as it is to the body.
In our packaging department we are always looking at new innovative ways to present product. Great attention is paid to eco-friendly options. We have this year introduced a natural flow wrap and a recycled paper option.
We have also embarked on a project to support the local community through the utilization of using Hand Made Recycled Paper. A client now has the choice of using Handmade Paper for their Packaging of Personal Care Items. This not only supports a local community, it protects the planet & reduces the hotel’s carbon foot print.
Mapepa presents a unique range of paper products created by village people in the African Republic of Zimbabwe. The objective of the organization is to promote and support small-scale paper production through community based projects spread throughout the country. Master paper makers train villagers in the ancient art of papermaking using simple equipment which is donated by the organization. This fledgling new industry has given hope to hundreds of people, mainly women with young families. They are trained to make paper using indigenous plant fibers that grow wild around their home. Each sheet is made from 100% cellulosic plant fiber - which is lignin and acid free. Luipardal purchases essential oils through KAITE a community based project in Zimbabwe.
KAITE is a private company with outlets in Zimbabwe and Germany, engaged in sustainable social entrepreneurship through the cultivation, production, authentication, processing, exporting, and marketing of high quality organic products for the local and international market.
Through our emphasis on the organic production of herbs, spices, medicinal, and aromatic plants, as well as staple foods, we ensure that small-scale farmers escape the vicious cycle of heavy reliance on imported inputs, unsustainable methods of farming, volatile produce markets, low producer prices, and lack of marketing.
