Who says that Vegan skincare is NOT for us? If you love all natural plant based Skincare and are located in the UK, then this post is for you.

After dealing with the harsh weather conditions in the UK that led to uneven skin, dryness and blemishes, Mozambican born Celmira Amade decided to take matters into her own hand.

Make-up was no longer the solution and skin bleaching was definitely not an acceptable alternative, so she started researching and formulating recipes. Using some beauty recipes from her grandmother, TSAKA was born.

TSAKA (with a silent T, pronounced SAKA,) means happiness in the Ronga dialect of Mozambique and this journey has certainly led this young businesswoman to discover the true meaning of happiness.


The TSAKA facemask is the first product in the skincare line and is set to take the melanin rich skincare world by storm. This highly effective wonder product is formulated with rare plant extracts from the Olacaceae family that are only found in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Madagascar – and it is the first beauty line in the UK to use this ingredient extensively.

The mask has high anti-inflammatory and smoothing properties that minimise post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation, which is a serious issue in melanin-rich skin. It also deep cleans, detoxifies and smoothens the skin without clogging your pores. But the real wonder of the TSAKA facial lies on its preservative free formula, boasting a one-year period after opening shelf life.

This is the first time that the beauty and science behind Mozambique’s extraordinary flora will be used in a major beauty line. As a vegan skincare company launching its first product for melanin-rich skin, TSAKA pays tribute to time tested traditional African beauty recipes – pushing the boundaries of possibilities in natural beauty.

Celmira took the entrepreneurial leap to influence the concept of beauty products for melanin rich skin tones.
