Herbafrique was founded in 2005 by a research and development team who believe in providing the finest scientifically founded herbal products in South Africa. Only the finest locally-sourced African ingredients and the highest standard of manufacturing has gone into these biological and natural products.
The human body is far more tolerant of plant extracts than synthetically produced chemicals because:
- Herbs contain minerals and vitamins which are easily absorbed by the skin. These have a far more beneficial effect in softening wrinkles, moisturising, reducing oiliness, and are helpful in combating skin disorders like eczema, acne, and blotchiness.
- Skin allergies and sensitivities are on the increase. This is because of creams containing artificial fragrances and parabens (preservatives) as well as sunscreens with protective factors that are way too high.
- Herbs have a balancing effect, homeostasis, on the body which eventually normalises the functioning of the skin.
Herbafrique’s mission is to raise awareness around herbal remedies and provide great products as an alternative to conventional medication and skincare.
From the ‘Cradle of Mankind’ we offer you Africa’s remedies.
