Masala is a mixture of indian spices | Crua is the portuguese word for raw.
A mix of different natural creations inspired by mother earth.
A reconnection with our roots.
A place to explore and share.
masalaCRUA is a portuguese brand of natural cosmetics crafted by Ines and Dean in a remote land somewhere in sunny alentejo.
We are proud of our small artisanal laboratory and our slow process that allows every batch to be carefully prepared with a slightly different and unique result.
We are committed to share the best products respecting our bodies and our soils, using the least amount of water and plastic possible.
I am Inês, a Portuguese woman born and raised in Porto.
Most of my life I’ve lived in the city but some years ago I started to travel and soon found out that my place was around nature. In 2020 I finally settled in the sunny Alentejo, south of Portugal, where I started to reconnect with my roots, with all the beautiful nature and all the beings that surround us.
I have been researching and experimenting natural care products since 2016 and I love to be able to share this knowledge and open up a space for a more conscious care of our body and for taking responsibility for our input in nature.
In 2021 Dean joined the project and together we are making it grow in a beautiful and conscious way, keeping the magic of a small scale business.
Every creation is carefully prepared with natural products, many of the herbs that we use are collected from our gardens or from our friends and all of the infused oils are slowly made by us. We prefer slow cold processes that allow to keep the main properties of the herbs.
We hope you connect with our creations and feel all the love we have made them with.
All our products are made with natural ingredients or ingredients extracted from natural sources certified for natural cosmetic, without using any artificial scents or colours.
We are currently in a process of certifying our natural cosmetics.
