One of our favorite quotes that we love comes from the Oscar 2012 nominated movie "THE HELP". Mae Mobley is the young girl who is constantly criticized by her mother, and Aibileen is the caregiver of young Mae, who tries to counter the effect of this cruelty with a daily ritual of repeating these words: “YOU IS KIND, YOU IS SMART, YOU IS IMPORTANT.” Aibileen’s daily ritual made a positive impact on a small child whose confidence and self-esteem were in constant jeopardy by her mother’s actions. It is a testimony to how words can inspire and make a difference.
At Marula-The Leakey Collection, we think beauty is more than skin deep. We are inspired by your words of how our Marula oil has benefited your skin and it is rewarding to learn that the product we have brought to market will benefit more women as they learn about it and more women in East Africa who earn enough income to provide a brighter future for their own children. As Aibileen might say, “You Is Marula Beautiful!”
