Tshwane entrepreneur Mosezana Malatji has ventured into business in a big way after establishing a cosmetics manufacturing company.
Called Zhane Botle, the company manufactures skin moisturisers or make-up products such as 3D foundation, concealers, primers, highlighters and lip colour products, as well as eczema creams.
Malatji, 42, also manufactures different hair products such as hairline repairer, hair grower oil and anti-itch cream.
She makes the products from scratch, using her secret ingredients, at her house-turned-factory but sells them at a shop in Vrede Park Mall in Centurion.
Malatji, who was born in Soshanguve in 1975, said she started making her products by mixing items that her domestic worker mother brought home.
"Her employer would give her leftovers such as cooking oil, cocoa, coffee, castor oil and butter. I would take the oils and the butter and mix them to make my hair and body products. I would take cocoa and use it as make-up powder.
