The African Extracts Story
South African skin-care products inspired by the natural antioxidant power of rooibos
Founded in Cape Town in 2002, almost 20 years ago, African Extracts Rooibos skin care is a South African beauty brand inspired by the unique antioxidant power of the rooibos plant that grows naturally only in one place on earth – the rugged Cederberg mountains. Known for centuries by the first peoples of the region, the Khoi and the San, and developed later as a red tea, rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is widely acknowledged for its health-giving benefits.
From this natural heritage, the company developed a range of skin-care products with Bio-Active Rooibos extracted from organic rooibos. Because the company believes in the power of nature, our Bio-Active Rooibos is supported in each of the products by a host of proven natural active ingredients, carefully selected for their skin-care benefits. Each one is a testament to our down-to-earth approach.
