Tell us a bit more about your products…
Naturally Millie Ma makes beautiful body and soap products that are rich in locally grown olive oil, local honey varieties, yoghurts and pure spring water that’s sourced from SE Tasmania. With a great range of 100% natural olive oil soaps, creams and lotions, liquid soaps, lip balms rich in Manuka beeswax, body scrubs, all products awakens everyone’s senses, are quality driven and are highly suitable for all types of skin. All soaps are Synthetic and Palm Oil free. All products are made by Rowena from her original recipes, with no premade bases or surfactants in sight.
What led you into this business?
With a love of crafts and trying new hobbies, soap making was an easy choice to make for my children’s local primary school fair back in 2007. Running my first business Millie’s Maa Soaps since 2008, it was an easy decision to change to natural in 2015 and move to making beautiful body products with locally grown olive oil.

Every week I get the amazing opportunity to meet people from all over Australia and the world at a perfect location – Salamanca Market. I love having the opportunity to promote my products, interact with all my customers, and to inform them of the how the products are made.
