Cleansing your body is a ritual for radiant, supple and sumptuously scented skin with Mbiri Body Wash. Mbiri is inspired by the rare treasure of Namibian Myrrh, an earthy, fragrant tree resin traditionally gathered by the Himbi women of Namibia. With regular use, Mbiri’s Body Wash is intended to improve and beautify your skin, with effective ingredients such as anti-oxidant-rich Green Tea extract, Marula oil, and Kalahari Melon seed oil, all from just outside your doorstep in the Southern Africa region and all supporting the empowerment of local communities.

Spread kindness and share this product


In the midst of the harshest conditions of the Namibian desert, the Commiphora wildii plant naturally exudes a precious resin, which the Himba women of Kaokoland wild harvest. They call the resin Omumbiri - the Mbiri range is inspired by this desert gift:

  • 100% natural and contains certified organic Ingredients
  • Deeply nourishing African botanticals such as Marula Oil high in fatty acids and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil rich in phytosterols and Omega-6, improve skin health and appearance
  • Namibian Myrrh is central to the magical fragrance and benefical properties as it is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and overall very healing and restorative for the skin. It’s also emotionally calming and relaxing
  • Only naturally exuded resin is collected
  • Harvester-owned processing facility where the essential oil is extracted
  • Marula Oil and Kalahari Melon Seed oil are sourced from local co-operatives
  • RSPO certified and sustainable Palm Oil 

 Ethical, Organic Mbiri…

  • All Mbiri products are 100% natural and contain certified organic ingredients.
  • Mbiri is also accredited by Beauty Without Cruelty and The Vegan Society.
  • Being approved by Phytotrade, who monitors the fairtrade and sustainability of the raw ingredients, means that the harvesters are being treated fairly and truly benefit from the plant product being processed.
  • Every Mbiri product bought filters benefits right down to the harvesters not only in Namibia, but in Africa. 

Suggested Companion: once you are fragrantly clean, enhance and deepen the luscious effect of Mbiri Body Wash by rounding off with the Hydrating Body Lotion.

Mbiri have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise money to grow their business, and half of the contributions raised will go to their community project in Namibia. Watch the video to see what harvesting Namibian Myrrh is all about.

The BEST body wash I have ever used. Feel clean, fresh without skin being all dried out. And the smell! O the smell makes me feel like my 40yr old body is 20 again. I use your cream daily and the essential oil. Your product has renewed me! THANK YOU!

Not bad, but I'm still looking for that one product that will make using a moisturiser unnecessary after a shower.

Quite like this, lovely earthy smell. Foams fine with loofah. As much as I loved it, my body wash usually lasts more than a month, this one barely made it, which makes it pricey and not sure it’s worth it unfortunately.

One of my favourite shower gels that will always find its way back into my shopping cart! I love the earthy scent and the way it makes my skin feel.

Love the smell, the gentle, non-drying cleansing and that very little goes a long way.

Mbiri is the best natural body wash I have used so far! Unique but great smell and lathers well.

I've been making the transition towards only using earth friendly products in my household. I wanted to love this product as much as the other reviewers, but I didn't see a big difference in my skin (I have dry skin with dermatitis). I am also not too fond of the herb smell, but that is a personal preference.

Fresh and hydrating. Foams well with little needed. And the scent is relaxing and not overempowering.

This body wash smells amazing and leaves your skin soft and hydrated. A little goes along way.
We will definitely reorder this product.

I have nothing bad to say about this body wash. I love that it smells amazing, feels amazing and is a proudly South African product!
28/07/2017, By Liza
I'd like to think of myself as somewhat of a body wash/shower gel connoisseur, and this is hands down the best body wash I've ever tried! The smell is otherworldly and it moisturizes like crazy. Will definitely be restocking soon.

I recently bought this to try as my skin gets so dry in the highveld winters. I also bought the matching body lotion and used both of them for the first time yesterday. I actually find it hard to believe but this is the first time in months that I have not felt as if ants are running all over my skin. I have used shea butter, organic body washes and creams but nothing NOTHING has worked like this. This is the only body wash for me from now on.

I love this wash! It smells great and really does leave your skin feeling hydrated. You also only need a small amount to wash your whole body and it lathers beautifully. I always feel refreshed after using this body wash.
01/06/2016, By Kate
The smell and the softness of the product makes you really feel it is all natural. I have been using this wash on my face too and it is perfect. Delighted to have found it and would highly recommend you to try it!
