The Brand: Malée
Named after the founder’s great grandmother who was affectionately known as ‘Malée’, the name is a term of endearment for a gracious learned woman in the language spoken by a tribe in Nigeria. Africa is a big inspiration for the brand and the circular symbol in the company’s logo references African earth wisdom.
Malée Body Conditioning Cream
The bold green packaging of this body conditioning cream screams nature and luxury combined and looks fabulous displayed in a bathroom. It’s the kind of item you really want to leave on show, not keep hidden away.
The cream absorbs really easily into the skin, but the smell is what really makes this product stand out from other body creams. Featuring citrus, mint and patchouli, the invigorating Verdure scent is perfectly complimented by the green packaging.
Providing ‘conscious luxury’, as the brand calls it, Malée products don’t contain animal-derived ingredients, parabens or silicones. All products are sustainably sourced and cruelty-free.
Using Malée Body Conditioning Cream feels like a luxurious experience, right from the way the item is packaged, through to applying it to the skin.
Sold at £20. Available from Harvey Nichols and the brand’s own website
