In the eastern cape in south africa, Xhosa and Pondo women use the mineral rich mud from natural springs in the mountains for cosmetic purposes. the water from the springs is medicinal and considered to cure almost all ailments, the community may not sell the water as this is believed to ruin its properties however all sorts of little shops and services spring up around the springs and people travel from far to stockpile the water in massive containers for consumption for whole villages. this was taken in Port St Johns and the local name for the water is "isnuka"
