NEW PRODUCTS FOR HS WARRIORS!
The Mama Au, CEO, Anjel Marii
The Mama Au is a reflection of my efforts to bridge the gap between chronic conditions and peace of mind with alternative products. My fiancé, HS Warrior, inspired the creation of the Manuka honey salve and the all natural deodorants infused with bentonite, turmeric and Manuka honey. These products are carefully formulated to target symptoms such as abscesses in various parts of the body, skin inflammation, open wounds and severe body odor. We use organic ingredients sourced from around the world for all skin types to safely enjoy.
Everything is made to order, except our African Black Soap body bar; which is handcrafted in Ghana, Africa.
The Mama Au has partnered with 3CayG Industries, a family of cooperatives in Ghana and Benin, Africa. The purchase of an African Black Soap shows support for Fair Trade and Community Development. Currently, 3CayG Industries is in the process of restoring 12 water pumps in a village located in Benin, Africa. With each purchase, we are directly contributing to this community project as it strives to provide fresh water for an entire village of 10,000 people. The long term goal we share is having all water pumps readily accessible 24 hours, 7 days a week.
As we progress forward, The Mama Au would like to encourage open dialogue about Hidradenitis Suppurativa and advocate for the warriors affected by it. We are committed to lifting the veil on this chronic condition, shifting the narrative and increasing body positivity within the HS community.
7 days are needed to prepare and ship orders. Shipping is available internationally.

Everyday Breathable Liners from The Pampered Shop
We all know how hard it is to bandage the groin area or any other area such as that when we have draining abscesses, it's impossible! We may have a solutions to this problem thanks to Tanya! Machine washable and reusable pads to help with draining abscesses in the groin, labia, butt and scrotum as well as ice packs specifically designed for those specific sensitive areas. These are vetted by HS sufferers and others with chronic illnesses!
Outstanding reviews for the products and Ms. Tanya Bernard, the Etsy Shop owner!
Be sure to let her know that you want the "wicking jersey fabric" for the cloth type as opposed to the flannel, which would would be a special order. This is a personal preference, you may like the flannel! The wicking fabric will absorb more drainage and is more breathable which can also help prevent yeast rashes and or infection.
She does offer these pads with ice packs and will be developing a special category for this within a couple of days, but for now you can special order.
If you need extra long flaps to help with the crease of your legs, please indicate that when listing your specifications. Many have used these for their groin, labia, buttocks, and scrotum areas. Men can order these without the flaps and/or turn the flaps inside out.
If you have questions or need assistance, reach out to Ms. Tanya on her Etsy site and she'll be happy to help!
