Gail Mabalane launches Body Language skin care range
Gail Mabalane has launched her own range of skin care products. Body Language is a product aimed at both men and women. The female range is called She, while the male range is called Man.
Gail, who started working on this 18 months ago, said the name Body Language was inspired after she realised that a lot of people are not aware of the power of body language.
Speaking the launch in Sandton, she said: "Body language speaks volumes long before you've spoken. But what I've realised is that body language starts in the mind... I really wanted to start a movement where women can become aware of the body language that we portray because that can ultimately affect our destiny."
Gail said she's always had a keen interest in body care products. "I remember having multiple products, more than one body butter, more than one body lotion, hand and nail cream and so I know that it is something that I've always been passionate about," she explained.
She said she loves the fact that the product is that the product is proudly South African. "By proudly South African I mean that the product has been manufactured locally, it means that we sat down with the scientists, the specialists and the people who make products, went through the fragrances and how we wanted the texture of the product to be. Everything from the concept to the final product that you see has been done in South Africa."
She joked that her husband, Kabelo, who was also at the launch, tried some of the products, including the female range, to check the quality.
Gail and her team are already working on her next range. "This is going to be a life-long journey and we constantly have to introduce and be creative and keep the consumer happy with the product."
Body Language will not be available at retail stores but will be distributed through direct selling. This means there will be ladies all over the country selling Gail's skin care range. It will start off in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Kimberly and it will be available in other regions next year.
