We know that what we apply to the skin affects our skin health, our future health and our brain health. The skin absorbs approximately 60% of what is applied to it and it secretes and sweats out toxins. It is a miraculous organ of self regulation. We feel that the skin works best when it has natural ingredients working with it, helping to support skin function and the skin’s ability to heal.
We provide scientifically formulated, restorative skincare in the way that nature intended. We capture the power of African Botanicals and the best active ingredients natural science has to offer, empowering you to love your skin, and care for our planet. Our focus is on delivering pure, effective, organic formulas at the peak of their power – yet safe enough for the whole family.

Rooibos grows in the rugged Cederberg mountains of the Western Cape. It’s been known for centuries by the Khoi and the San people, and was later developed as a health tea.
Rooibos, with all its antioxidants, is proven to help fight free radicals in the skin and repair damage brought on by the elements. It also acts as an anti-ageing agent and helps to soothe irritations caused by sunburn, eczema, or dryness of the skin.
Myrothamnus flabellifolia, commonly known as the Resurrection Plant, is capable of inhabiting extremely inhospitable habitats due to its ability to exist for years in an air-dried, quiescent state. Upon the provision of water, it can resume metabolic processes within a few hours.
Resurrection plants are a source of several compounds with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties. They produce phenolic compounds (flavonoids), terpenoids, and biflavonoids such as robustaflavone that prevent free radical damage and act as natural anti-aging skin actives.
Resurrection plant extract helps turn dry skin into highly moisturised, radiant softness, providing a more youthful appearance and a smooth tactile feel.
Prized since ancient times for its valuable anti-aging and healing benefits, rosehip oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, vitamins, antioxidants and other phytochemicals.
