From Paw Paws and Baobab to Litchi and Titch

Litchi & Titch's Lecia Durham & Debbie Shriekker

A new shop – almost entirely devoted to soft, smooth skin – has recently opened opposite the Franschhoek Town Hall. The Tatler stopped by to find out more.

Litchi and Titch is the brainchild of Lecia Durham with business partner Debbie Schriekker – respectively the Litchi and Titch in the business’ name. Lecia and Debbie both have sales and marketing backgrounds and share a passion for all things natural and environmentally conscious, especially cosmetics. Starting a business to profit from their passion seemed a logical step, so they took it in 2017. Their first product, a paw paw balm, proved an instant success and they soon started adding other products to the range.

Periods Don’t Stop For Pandemics

28 May 2020 is recognized worldwide as Menstrual Hygiene Day, which aims to bring together the voices and actions of non-profits, government agencies, individuals, the private sector and the media to promote good menstrual hygiene management (MHM) for all women and girls. 3Sixty Biomedicine, a South African based company specializing in providing natural solutions for common women’s health issues, believes a lack of education on the issue of menstruation, persisting taboos and stigma, limited access to hygienic menstrual products and poor sanitation infrastructure is prevalent and undermines the educational opportunities, health and overall social status of women and girls around the world. Further to this and not as well championed as poor menstruation, is a common condition known as menorrhagia which is often painful and debilitating for 30% of women who suffer from it on an ongoing basis.
