Cosmetic innovation relies on good materials and biotechnological progress. But also on a bit of inspiration…
For us the inspiration always comes from our world renowned and highly sought-after African botanicals established as some of the most effective for modern skincare formulations.
During centuries, the African people learned how to protect themselves from the environment using these natural raw materials. We had observed their processes, learned from them the meaning behind each of their ingredients and the purpose behind their preparations which we updated with the latest technology and ingredients.
We therefore propose to you a modern, light textured, but rich in properties body lotion entirely natural and in large part organic. Acting as a potent cocktail for your skin to help protect it from the environmental damage the lotion is not greasy and non-comedogenic.
We recommend you use it throughout the year- summer or winter- to give your skin the right nutrition with the scope of keeping your beauty and health for as long as possible.
In an emulsion of Shea, Marula, Baobab, Argan, Mongongo, Cape Chestnut and Kalahari Melon, supported by the Konjac Mannan Root extract we had suspended the active ingredients found in our Flora Capensis perfume formula such as Buchu, Cape May, Cape Snowbush, Cape Chamomile, amongst others.
They have numerous therapeutic properties: regenerating, anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, anti-septic, restorative, revitalizing, toning, detoxifying.
Today the African nuts, fruits, leaves and roots are sustainably cultivated, harvested and processed, allowing local communities the much-needed financial support.
We outsource our raw materials as much as possible locally and we manufacture everything in our in-house laboratory.
We hope you give our lotion a try and send us your feedback.
