About Portia M Products:
Portia M is fast-growing black-owned skin care and cosmetics brand in South Africa and the world at large, specialising in quality skin care with locally sourced ingredients.
The company Portia M Solutions was founded in 2012 by Portia Mngomezulu after nine years of working as an IT engineer. Portia discovered the power of Marula after she had her first child and was dealing with stretch marks. Her mother in law advised her to try Marula oil because that’s what they used when she was younger. Portia tried the Marula oil and was amazed at the results.
She researched about Marula oil and found that it’s rich in natural fatty acids which hydrate your skin. From her kitchen, she created a few Marula based oil products and started selling them to friends. Friends loved it and kept coming back.
Knowing that selling bottles out of her handbag was not going to give the success she wanted, Portia decided to get expert help.
She approached a third party manufacturer and laboratory called Brunational in Sebenza and told them the types of products she wanted. The laboratory made tissue oil, body cream and facial products. The products were then taken to the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) to be tested. After getting a stamp of approval, she approached retailers such as Makro, Clicks and Game to list her products. After knocking on many doors, she finally received a positive response from Makro.
Today, Portia M Products are listed in most of the leading retailers in South Africa and are manufactured in-house using Marula oil as a primary ingredient.
Portia M™ is a Level 3 BBBEE contributor and a Proudly South African certified company. Portia M™ products are manufactured in a SABS approved facilities that follow Quality Management System based on ISO 9001/2008.
