Her organic, fine skin products are branded “House of Mosa.” The products are gentle and good on your skin—they are free from damaging chemicals. She is the National University of Lesotho (NUL) educated Mosa Ntaote. “All of these products are organic,” she introduced them. “And they are made with a sizable bunch of raw materials found in Lesotho.”

She decided to brand the products after her name, “my name is Mosa, these products are made by me, Mosa—they come from my house—the “House of Mosa.””

A new band of innovators is taking shape in the Mountain Kingdom. They are fearsome in their boldness…and awesome in their courage. They don’t think anybody owes them anything as they chart their own way forward. Literally, the tiny Kingdom is watching a generation of problem-solvers and Mosa and her “House of Mosa” are models of this revolution.

“It started with my own skin,” she related her story.

“Like many people, my skin is very senstive and I used to have real problems using chemical-laden skin products.”

We live in the world of chemicals. They are used in everything from the food we grow and eat, the medicines we use to ease our pains to the cosmetics we use on our delicate skins.

Chemicals rule!

But we, the people, are living biological beings. We are not dead chemical concoctions.

So our bodies and our skins are served better by organic biologicoal rather than dead inorganic materials—chemicals.

“When I was a student at the NUL, there was a time when my skin problems got so worse that I had to undergo treatment.”

It turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

She became more determined than ever to search for solutions. After trying one cosmetic form after another and failing, she tried the alternative, “I started using organc products and… what a difference!”

Science has proved it.

Plant based skin products have high content of vitamins, they are natural (and less likely to irritate your skin), and generally do not contain dangerous materials that can cause longterm health problems.

Even as she was enjoying the benefits of the products, there was one thing she didn’t really like. Organic skin products were costly and of course, hard to source. In fact, their expense, compared to chemical based products, is the chief reason most people just can’t let go the chemcials—the chemicals are low cost and they are like, everywhere!

She found that you literally have to cross the border to find organic products in reasonable supply.

So she made a plot.

What if she started making the products right here in Lesotho?

In that way, she could figure out the means to make them cheaper. That wasn’t easy. Making any product is not easy—trying to make it at mass scale is more challenging. That didn’t stopping her from doing it anyway—she was on a mission.

She read, experimented, read, experimented and read and experimented.

When she was satisfied, she started using the products on her own skin. “If you don’t love your product, who should?” Elon Musk once asked. Ya. You gotta love your product.

It was not a blind love.

Her organic products were working on her skin, one of the most sensitive.

Her relatives, friends, neighbours and colleagues noted. And they joined the bandwagon, “could you please share?” they would ask.

So making the products were no longer about herself. She now wanted to assist people with similar problems. Yet another brand was being born in the Mountain Kindom, this time—the House of Mosa.

It’s not long since she started but the word is spreading like fire and people are buying like there is no tomorrow.

And the prices are quite affordable for most people and, indeed, the products are worth paying a little extra for.

She may be using organic oils and so on in her products, but what about the preservatives and other small additives that improve the shelf-life of the products?

Are they organic too?

“Yes, there are organic preservatives so I use those in my products,” she said. “They are a bit expensive but, guess what, they are worth it!”

She said some of the products do not need preservatives because, as she put it, “they are actually designed by nature to preserve themselves.” She quoted honey as in an example.

“The beauty of it all,” she said, “is that quite a number of the ingredients I use in my organic chemical-free products are found here in Lesotho.”

Her repertoire of products also include organic hair products.

Now is the time to swith sides and be on the side of nature. That means buying the products from the “House of Mosa.”
