Frequently Asked Questions

What is the vision behind Mzansi Beautiful?

We love supporting local and we want to bring local South African products and creations into your homes.  We have curated and put together this beautiful range just for you. We would love your feedback so reach out to us on

Where are these products made?

All our products are made in South Africa by local makers and creatives, in their studios, workshops and homes. Each product is carefully selected and the range curated to showcase unique South African products and makers. We are committed to bringing these special pieces to your homes and to support local makers and creatives to get the products and creations to customers.  Many makers look to us to help them with all the steps after creation, and we love working with them so they can focus on what they are the best at, ie the creation!

Can I breathe in a Mzansi Mask?

Covering your nose and mouth with any type of mask product is going to cause you to need to breathe slightly differently. Mzansi Masks can be worn comfortably for a number of hours.

How do I wash my mask? 

We recommend a 30 degree machine wash and line dry.   We do NOT recommend hand-washing as this can sometimes be done too vigorously, whilst a machine wash cycle is more gentle. The product is not designed to withstand bleach, but may be disinfected if necessary. 

I have a beard. Can I wear a Mzansi Mask? 

We recommend that those with vigorous and generous facial hair bear in mind that masks are not designed for a strong stubble, or abrasive facial hair. We would recommend a shave, or beard trim.

Can my children wear a Mzansi Mask with comfort? 

Yes they can. You can make this experience non-threatening, teaching them how to wear their mask and why wearing a Mzansi Mask is an added barrier helping to protect. You can also set an example by wearing yours. We offer suitable, fun prints for children. Childrens masks are suitable for ages 3 to 8.

Why should I use a Mzansi Mask?

It is imperative to comply with the shutdown regulations and parameters that have been set to limit and reduce the spread of COVID-19. If we all commit to mask-wearing we can beat this pandemic together. But this requires resilience and commitment to regularly mask-wearing with our families, colleagues, neighbours and communities.

When should I wear my Mzansi Mask?

Whenever leaving your home!
