Cape Town – Zikhona Tefu's daughter was born with eczema and over the years it became terrible. She was using various soaps to treat it, but these soaps had chemicals and they further irritated her skin.
Tefu related to Fin24: "One day I stumbled upon a natural soap at a health store and it worked. I was thinking, if it was naturally made, I could make my own."
Tefu started searching the internet for natural soap-making recipes and found plenty. Over time she learnt to create her own recipes, using essential oils and other natural ingredients like shea butter and honey.
