Her visionary perspective on all things skincare is what eventually led to the creation of her very own perfected sugaring paste, Tapira sugaring paste. The paste is an environmentally conscious product, from how the cane is grown without the use of agricultural chemicals to the 100% unrefined organic certified sugar raw material. Similarly, all skincare products under Tapira are produced under the same principle of being organic and environmentally conscious.

Growing up in Zimbabwe where looking to nature as a source for both organic food and medicine for her family was the norm, Mabel naturally gravitates towards the usage of skincare products in their organic state, with emphasis on value and high standards without sacrificing quality.
