    This market we welcome Shace Importing , importers of cold pressed, unrefined, pure Nilotica Shea Butter from Africa to the design market.

    Raw African shea butter nourishes and conditions skin and hair.

    100% shea butter is rich in fatty acids that create a soft and smooth barrier. This seals in moisture and helps moisturises dry, chapped and damaged skin.

    Each purchase helps support women in Africa.

    This month we welcome House of Wax to 💚 THE BRIDGE 🌼 MARKET, a passion project for Rebecca Leon. Rebecca is focussed on driving change in the mental health area and what better way to reach an audience and start the conversation than through candles?

    Everyone loves candles. Self care and self love are the focus of the business and something that they try to promote daily to their customers.

    From June onwards, House of Wax will be donating 5% of all sales and proceeds to Sane Australia.

    SANE Australia is a national mental health charity working to support four million Australians affected by complex mental illness including schizophrenia, bipolar, personality disorders, eating disorders, OCD, PTSD and severe depression and anxiety.
