African Botanics

Our story starts in South Africa

In the southernmost region of a vast and ancient continent, believed to be the very cradle of humankind, there is a land of great beauty, rich in scenic splendour, cultural diversity and is arguably unparalleled for its magnificent variety of fauna and flora.

Our love for Africa drives our desire to explore this unique continent and discover indigenous plants and extraordinary places.

African Botanics is made in the heart of South Africa, our products convey a rich diversity of the African landscape and flora through signature, bespoke formulations utilizing unique ingredients, luxury textures and rare raw materials that embody the absolute African spirit.


Eco-luxury skincare collection driven by ancient African phytochemistry and rich botanical pharmacology

We honor and respect thousands of years of traditional African medicinal knowledge which was created from the need to survive and protect the skin from the harsh African environment.

With great respect to Africa’s biodiversity, we utilize the most concentrated active plant extracts and superior botanical actives.

The complete benefit and potential of every ingredient in our products is used to its full ability to help protect the skin from environmental stressors and inhibit the negative effects of aging free radicals while helping to restructure and regenerate cells by supplementing the skin to assist with the production of high-quality collagen and elastin.

Incorporating molecular science, capturing antioxidants, omegas, intelligent nutrients and far beyond…

Utilizing the most advanced extraction and encapsulation methods allows us to create superior performing products that demonstrate powerful efficacy and rejuvenating results.

Our selection of ultra-powerful actives starts with in-depth research and analysis by closely collaborating with university labs and research teams in South Africa, France, Austria and Switzerland. We then select highly effective phyto-actives and South African plant species for their heightened antioxidant concentration, moleclular structure, natural peptides and omega content.

African Botanics products are highly active and extremely concentrated with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory omegas, cell-communicating peptides, intelligent collagen boosters, botanical stem cells, minerals, marine biotechnology and energizing vitamins compared to most skincare products on the market.

Sustainable sourcing from remote locations that go beyond organic

Our ingredients come from every part of Southern Africa: the desert, the sea and the land. The majority are wild-harvested from very unique hot-spots that we call eco-zones. They grow in their natural, bio-dynamic environment free from farming, pollution, pesticides and human interference. We make sure that the plants we use are sustainable and are harvested with utmost respect to nature and future generations.

Our unique botanicals, plant butters, seed oils and minerals originate from remote, untouched regions, near and far, all with special qualities creating new endless skincare possibilities and are carefully selected to make products that enhance your day and care holistically for your skin, body and mind. We constantly seek new combinations in order to develop the best benefits and sensory sensations that all our products bring.

Potent ingredients, from extreme eco-zones

Smart, effective, potent and clinically proven ingredients are selected for compatibility with the skin and sensorial richness. Every single active ingredient that we use has to meet these strict criteria.

We source our raw ingredients directly from each supplier so we know and can trace everything that goes into the creation of our products. We regularly visit our suppliers from the highest altitude mountain estates and dry desert to the wild and hot African savannah.

Leonor Greyl at the Golden Globes

At the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards, Leonor Greyl products were used by celebrity stylists Robert Vetica, Johnnie Sapong, and Mara Roszak to create red carpet looks for Cate Blanchett, Daniel Craig, and Ana de Armas. Read on for the complete breakdown:

Cate Blanchett

Celebrity hairstylist Robert Vetica used Leonor Greyl products to create an ethereal updo for Cate Blanchett—nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical Comedy for her work in Where’d You Go, Bernadette.

“Cate wore a beautiful Mary Katrantzou dress, which was the inspiration for the hair,” Vetica says. “We wanted the hair to be soft and ethereal to keep things from leaning retro.”

Beginning with clean, wet hair, Vetica applied Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice to provide texture and volume. Pairing Olivia Garden Ceramic+ion Hair Dryer with Olivia Garden Private Collection Ceramic Bristle Brush 1.5″ provided smoothness and shine while minimizing frizz.

After creating a side part, Vetica reached for Leonor Greyl Laque Souple styling spray and the Olivia Garden Ceramic+ion Flat Iron. Starting at the front of the head, he divided hair into two-inch sections before curling. “I sprayed Laque Souple on each section, then used the iron to create a full curl to give the hair body,” he said. He repeated this process, section by section, until all hair was finished. “I sprayed each section before and after with Leonor Greyl Laque Souple to ensure shine and hold,” he says. Once all hair was curled, he brushed out the hair and used an “ample amount” of Leonor Greyl Laque Souple for hold.

Next, he back-combed all over before using Leonor Greyl Voluforme styling spray on only the roots. “Using the Olivia Garden styling brush, I brushed the hair into the desired shape, clipping as I moved along the sides and toward the back,” he says. “Once I was happy with the shape, I secured hair to the back of the head and used bobby pins to achieve an unkempt knot—all the while, spraying Laque Souple for hold.” Vetica lightly finished the style with fingers, strategically pulling out flyaways to frame Cate’s face. “Doing this helps achieve a soft, feminine, unkempt hairdo,” he says. The final step: One last misting of Leonor Greyl Voluforme where needed.

Daniel Craig

Celebrity hairstylist Johnie Sapong used Leonor Greyl products on Daniel Craig to create a fresh and clean look. Daniel’s hair was combed through with Leonor Greyl’s Gel A L’hibiscus focusing on root area to give some lift and the hair was blow dried with a comb. “Once dried I used Leonor Greyl Baume Bois de Rose to shape the hair and finished with Leonor Greyl Lacque Souple for added hold,” Johnnie said.

Ana de Armas

Celebrity hairstylist Mara Roszak sent best actress in a motion picture (musical or comedy) nominee Ana de Armas down the red carpet in a modern, twisted low ponytail look created using Leonor Greyl products.

“Ana’s long, custom navy sequin Ralph Russo dress has this really beautiful, classic silhouette, but it’s also really modern. There’s something really cool about it while still being really classic, and we wanted the hair to reflect that. The dress set the tone.”

Roszak started by putting a center part in de Armas’ towel-dried hair. “She’s got really gorgeous, thick hair, and I added the Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice all over to give it texture,” Roszak says. She applied a golf-ball size amount of the mousse to de Armas’ roots and raked it through to the ends before rough-drying it with a blow-dryer and a paddle brush.

Next, using her fingers, Roszak created two 2-inch pin curls about 2 inches behind the Knives Out star’s hairline and sprayed them with the Leonor Greyl Voluforme styling spray to amplify the volume at the top of the hair. “The product is the perfect mid-process styling spray because it gives hair texture, but you can still work with it,” she adds.

From there, Roszak pulled de Armas’ hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of her neck, but instead of securing it with an elastic, she twisted the hair and used U-pins at the base to keep it in place. To seal the ends and give it polish and dimension, she used a small amount of the Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel styling cream. “It’s truly such a favorite product of mine; I cannot do a hairstyle without it. It gave this look a sort of piecey-ness to the ends.”

A few spritzes of the Leonor Greyl Laque Souple hairspray finished the look. “The look overall is pretty modern but classic. It feels timeless but it also feels cool.”

How LEBON Organic Toothpaste Cleans Your Teeth Naturally

The job of any decent toothpaste is to clean away plaque, freshen breath, and whiten teeth. Unfortunately, many commercially available toothpaste brands do so by combining toxic or unhealthy chemicals in our body that are hard on our stomachs and bad for the environment. LEBON organic toothpaste is a line of French eco-friendly and people-friendly teeth cleaning products that give your teeth a squeaky-clean finish without the harsh chemicals.

LEBON toothpaste is the brainchild of husband and wife team Stephanie and Richard Le Bon, whose combined love of nature and art led to their first collection of three delicious kinds of toothpaste that are naturally flavoured and leave teeth feeling ever-so clean. 

For Teeth Whitening

LEBON whitening teeth contains papaya extract, which has unique enzymes that gently remove plaque and stains. Plus, it tastes deliciously fruity and isn’t abrasive on your teeth, making it safe for everyday use. Normal teeth whitening products contain abrasives or hydrogen peroxide that bleaches your gums, tastes awful, and causes stomach upset (even if you don’t swallow it). LEBON’s Le White toothpaste is flavoured with sweet Moroccan mint and green tea.

For Deep Cleaning

All LEBON toothpaste products contain 2 safe yet powerful ingredients that get rid of and prevent plaque formation, fight cavities, protect gums, and naturally fight bacteria: organic green tea and aloe vera. This cleaning team offers a refreshing, clean taste and makes your gums, teeth, and tongue feel so fresh and so clean.

What You Won’t Find in LEBON Toothpaste

All LEBON products are made using the highest ethical and ecological standards. Every ingredient is carefully chosen for its efficacy, sustainability, organic certification, and flavour. On top of being vegan and cruelty-free, all LEBON products are made using absolutely zero parabens, SLS, sulfates, fluoride, artificial colours, triclosan, and more!

These ingredients are used in many commercially manufactured personal products—from toothpaste to deodorant to shampoo—to increase the product’s shelf life, add flavour and colour using cheap and artificial ingredients, produce a bubbly or soapy reaction, and cut corners by substituting natural but just-as effective ingredients with cheaper chemicals that are too toxic to be swallowed.

4 Reasons Your Skin Wants You to Start Using a Konjac Sponge

If you’ve never heard of a Konjac Sponge before, you’re missing out on an essential beauty product that will make your skin feel healthy, refreshed, and clean from the inside out. This unique sponge is derived from the Konjac potato, or Konnyaku, and has been used by women, men, and children in East Asia as a beauty product, medicine, and nutritional food staple for over 1500 years. Because of its endless health properties, Konjac sponges have reached a new peak in popularity for the environmentally conscious skin care user. Here are four reasons you should be using a Konjac Sponge.

#1: Sustainability

Konjac potatoes grow in the mountains of Asia and are fast-renewing resources. The methods of rendering the plant into the sponge are carried out without the use of harsh chemicals, pollutants, dyes, or additives. The original Konjac Sponge can be used on even the most sensitive skin types because of its completely safe and natural properties. The sponge is naturally soft and moisture-rich without harsh processing, making it perfect for baby’s bathtime or your nighttime ritual.

#2: Ethical Practices

The original Konjac Sponge Company is not the only seller of sponges. Because of its increasing popularity, there are more copycat companies offering a similar product. However, Konjac Sponge does not mass produce its products in large factories. The original sponge company has high ethical and sustainable standards to support the local economy, respect its people, and be gentle to the environment. Every sponge Konjac Sponge Company sells is made by hand to ensure quality and authenticity, and each product is proudly produced using vegan and animal cruelty-free practices. For more information about the company’s ethical standards, click here.

#3: Packed with Powerful Nutrients

The entire Konjac potato plant has been used for over a millennium for its medicinal properties. Enriched with powerful antioxidants, minerals, and skin-loving vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, these soft sponges give your skin a spa-like treatment every time you use them. Applying the sponge with water alone will safely and effectively cleanse your skin. The Konjac Sponge Company provides sponge blends with other natural ingredients, like activated charcoal and French clay to give your skin added benefits. For instance, oily, acne-prone skin will improve with the 6 Wave Sponge with Bamboo Charcoal, which naturally removes excess oils and balances your pH.

#4: Great for the Whole Family

This gentle, sensitive, and highly beneficial sponge was originally intended for babies. Its softness and purity are ideal for oh-so delicate skin, but its natural bacteria-fighting, moisture-replenishing, and pore-refining properties are beneficial for the whole family. Your baby will love bath time with the Baby and Child Kit that contains one face sponge, one bath sponge, and a helpful drying bag for when you’re on the go. Perfect for nappy changes, bath time, and messy little faces, this essential kit is perfectly safe for your baby or child and can be used without cleansers. For dry, damaged, or mature skin, try the Facial Puff with Red French Clay, which gently rejuvenates and brightens dull or tired skin.

Hazelway is committed to providing its customers with conscientiously crafted premium-quality products. Shop our boutique selection of Konjac Sponge Company products Online or visit our location in Yorkville, Toronto.

How to Make it Through the Semester With a Capsule Wardrobe

It’s that time of year again: the time we pack up our stuff, add courses to our curriculum, con our friends into helping us move, and set off to college or university. Whether you’re travelling far from home or simply into the city, deciding what clothes to wear will take a lot of time and planning. Chances are, your closet space is about to shrink, which means that it’s time to be selective with what you pack. Planning a capsule wardrobe might be your best bet. A capsule wardrobe is a strategically chosen set of tops and bottoms that can be worn interchangeably to maximize the number of outfits you can wear. Capsule wardrobes should be no greater than 30–40 pieces, including shoes, coats, hats, and jewelry. If you’re about to start your new school year with a pint-sized closet, here are some tips for building a capsule wardrobe.

Think Basic

Many capsule wardrobe specialists will tell you to pick a basic colour first. Usually, this colour is black, navy, charcoal, or brown. While white seems like a perfect basic colour, it might not be suitable for a fall wardrobe. Instead, choose white as a coordinating colour (think tees). Black is a popular choice because it goes with everything. If you want to include a pair of black leggings, nothing is more basic than Essential Leggings from Basic. Basic makes luxury, high-end cotton clothing to complete any wardrobe.

What is Essential?

Take a look at your closet. Considering a capsule wardrobe contains 30 to 40 items, pick out articles of clothing, jewelry, and outerwear that you simply cannot live without. These are your essentials. All capsule wardrobes are different because they represent each person’s unique style. Now, how many more items can you add? What’s left? If you have chosen only one top but have six bottoms, you now have room to be creative.

Neutrals Are Our Friends

Coordinating colours are so great to work with because they’re adaptable and flattering. A simple Basic white tee has the power to dress up a pair of jeans and dress down a blazer. A Basic black cami can be paired with any style of skirt or a pair of jogging pants. For colours to complement your basic shade, white, grey, maroon, brown, and navy are great choices that give you plenty of variety.

Give Your Wardrobe a Hint of Colour

Now that you’ve chosen your basics and coordinates, it’s time to fill your wardrobe with splashes of colour, patterns, and florals. If your basic is black, any colour you choose will go well. Stripes and polka-dots tend to be more timeless than certain shades and florals. If you choose wild colours or prints, try matching them with three or four other items of clothing to see if they can form several outfits. This is your chance to inject your unique personality into your wardrobe without adding an entire suitcase full of items.

For all your other back-to-school needs, check out Hazelway's hand-picked collection of beauty, skin, and bath products as well as our boutique collection of essential apparel that will help you build the perfect capsule wardrobe. Shop Online, or come and visit our Yorkdale, Toronto location.

How to Choose the Right Ilia Lip Shade for Every Occasion

Our lips speak their own language. A gentle smile, a playful grin, a tight-lipped frown. Lip colour is an important facet of body language. Choosing the right shade for any occasion should be fun and fulfilling; that’s why Hazelway brings you our favourite Ilia Beauty lip colours and lip care. Find your perfect shade with the most amazing colours from our boutique collection of Ilia’s premium quality lip and beauty care. Take a look at this quick user’s guide for finding the right Ilia lip shade for any occasion.

Office Appropriate
When it comes to your nine to five, choosing the right colour all boils down to finding a neutral shade that blends well with your outfit. Unless you’re a model or actor, you weren’t hired for your looks, so being the centre of attention with a bold or metallic colour might distract rather than complement your outfit. Try our favourite neutral lipsticks and conditioners, like Nobody’s Baby, These Days, and In My Room. Ilia beauty products are made with organic dyes to ensure quality and safety.

The Night Out with the Girls
This is the time to let loose with your favourite people on the planet. You never know what can happen when you’re out with your friends. If you’re starting your night at an upscale wine bar or supper club, something playful yet understated might be your best bet. If you tend to change venues in the evenings, you need a versatile colour that works for any occasion. In that case, we suggest sticking with trending yet classic colours, such as Arabian Knights, Crimson and Clover, and Shell Shock.

Black-Tie Event
This is the one time where there are no limits to how much makeup you can long as it’s done properly. Your hair, lips, and eyes will all be styled to perfection. Feel free to pair your fierce cat eyes with bold hues, gloss, and glitter. For a black-tie event, try something like the seductive dark red tones of Femme Fatale or the intense but playful Gypsy lip gloss or even the widely popular magenta Neon Angel.

For a Little TLC
If you continue to use Ilia lip care, you will probably start to notice how soft and hydrated they feel. That’s because Ilia products are made with naturally soothing ingredients and dyes that won’t dry out your skin, make you itch, or give you that unwanted tacky feeling. But no matter how high quality your products are, you will always have to give your lips a little love every now and then. For dry, chapped lips, try their Balmy Nights lip exfoliator with volcanic stone powder.

Try Ilia’s Beauty Line at Hazelway
Hazelway carries luxury beauty brands that select only the finest ingredients in their production to ensure the highest quality for customers who appreciate premium brands. Check out Ilia’s entire line of makeup, skincare, and beauty products at Hazelway Online, or visit our location in Yorkville, Toronto.

The name Kastehelmi refers to the dewdrop shapes that encircle each piece like a string of freshwater pearls and was originally the designer’s clever way to cover up joint marks left behind during production. The minute details of every piece of glassware demonstrate the company's profound mastery of glass production.
