Authentic, effective, affordable products that combine the science of contemporary skin care with the proven efficacy of natural plant extracts.


At the heart of our brand is a Bio-Active extract of our unique indigenous Rooibos plant, which grows naturally only one place in the world, the Cederberg mountains. Its rich harvest antioxidants and minerals has a proven ability to soothe and heal, reduce free radical activity and protect against oxidative stress associated with lifestyle disease and premature skin ageing.

Our cosmetic chemists source advanced, award-winning botanical actives from around the world and combine them with antioxidant vitamins to support cellular renewal, protect against pollution, and balance oil and moisture for healthy, glowing skin.

In keeping with our plant-centric formulations and modern lifestyle trends, all our facial products are vegan.

All our ingredients are certified as coming from sustainable sources to ensure that the environmental impact is minimised.

Our brand is cruelty free and is probably the largest commercial brand endorsed by Beauty Without Cruelty. Unlike most of our multinational competitor brands, we refuse to export to countries, like China, that require animal testing.

African Extracts was started almost 20 years ago, and our products are all developed and manufactured in our own factory in Paarden Eiland, Cape Town. Proudly supporting 80 local jobs and creating careers for South Africans.
