Go for local ingredients One of my favourite active ingredients, myramaze, is extracted from a resurrection plant, which grows in the Magaliesberg area, close to Pretoria. This plant survives long periods of drought in a completely desiccated state, but it is alive and green within hours of just a few drops of water. Myramaze has many benefits, like reviving mature skin.
