South African entrepreneurs spearheading the natural beauty products industry!

Destiny magazine profiles four women who are playing their part in advancing the natural beauty products industry in South Africa. It has been scientifically proven that chemicals found in many beauty and cosmetic products can result in allergies, skin irritations and even cancer in lab animals, yet there is no legislation against the chemicals being used in products.
The four women who are profiled are:
  • Renchia Droganis of Africology;
  • Peggy Mahlaba of Meta Cosmetics and Peggy M frangrance;
  • Elmien Scholtz of Bio Sculpture;
  • Johannah Moriti of Jo M;
Destiny magazine talks to these women about the process of starting up, as well as cross-border operations. These ambitious women, through hard work and determination, founded their companies and are now operating as the CEOs.

Ultimately, these women turned their passion into a successful business model.

"It's never easy starting a business, so patience really is a virtue. Stand up for yourself and push, no matter what people are telling you, and never give up," says Peggy Mahlaba.
