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.
