Necessarily, this boutique located at Mazunte has become "my" reference beauty on the Costa Chica. Already because it is there, and only there, that I found a "repelente", repel mosquitoes, natural and effective. I tested all the inventions french, sold very expensive in the pharmacies, the bracelets, the products "special tropics", but nothing is done. There is that the "repelente" of Mazunte, to the delicious smell of lemongrass, which seems to be effective to keep away the tough mexican mosquito.
This is not all: here the shampoos and the after-shampoo, concocted by the indigenous (that you will see work in the back of the store), natural, without dangerous chemicals for health, and which are the only ones to restore some semblance of lustre to my poor hair loops after a few weeks spent on the Pacific.
The natural products used are, among others: of the avocado oil, soya oil, the oil of sesame seeds, in the refined oil from maize, coconut oil, beeswax , aloe vera and vitamin E.
Soaps, Creams of day, lip balms, oils for the body, shower gels, you'll find it all, and even of the care of a collagen! Of course, these quality products have a price, but you do not get something for nothing. Consider, moreover, that by buying here, you will support a action eco-tourist, and the conversion of native people in the area for a job that respects their region.
I explain: once, to Mazunte, the survival was provided mainly by the killing of turtles. It was not then question of tourism, nor respect for the environment. One day, the government has prevented this massacre, and a fact of Mazunte the place of "preservation" of turtles (including a museum of the tortoise, absolutely fantastic, and that offers of employment to many local). But the natives found themselves faced with enormous problems of economic survival. The initiative of the "natural cosmetic" (through the investment of Body Shop) has allowed to give a job to a lot of inhabitants of Mazunte - some 15 families, 11 women and 4 men -, without more ashamed of their activity, and on the contrary, by removing a lot of pride (to reason! ).
