NEW AFRICAN ROOIBOS EXTRACTS SKINCARE NOW IN UK

Forget A-Beauty or even K-Beauty, SA-Beauty is the latest beauty import to reach the UK. 

African Extracts Rooibos is a highly successful natural skincare brand created by beauty expert and award wining beauty editor, Sarah Hetherington, in her home of Cape Town in 2002. The two collections introduced into the UK, CLASSIC and ADVANCED, both contain the brands key ingredient, antioxidant rich Rooibos extract, grown naturally in only one place on earth, (just like Champagne!) the rugged Cederberg Mountains of South Africa.

African Extracts Rooibos is an affordable natural skincare range that blends the science of contemporary skincare with the proven efficacy of natural plant extracts. Each product features the key ingredient, organic bioactive Rooibos extract, a powerful anti-oxidant to combat the effects of pollution and the environment. African Extracts is proud of the provenance of its Rooibos extract.

It comes directly from the Fynbos plants growing wild on the mountain slopes and plains of the Cederberg mountains. Watered only by the rain that falls out of the clean mountain air, fertilised only by the minerals of the ancient soils and harvested by hand with scythes, the green leafy plants are loaded onto wagons and taken to a state-of-the-art plant where pure steam and water are used to extract the antioxidant goodness. The extract is certified organic, and Fairtrade guarantees ethical labour practices. The authentic natural rosy colour of Rooibos is even visible in the Face Wash and Scrub.

As a natural brand that believes in the power of nature to bring skincare results, Bio-Active Rooibos has been combined with up to 35 other hand-selected natural active ingredients, each with their own skincare benefits. The dermatologically tested products are paraben and microbead free, with no animal testing on the ingredients (endorsed by Beauty without Cruelty) and almost all of the collection is vegan.

The two collections now available in the UK include:

Africa Extracts Rooibos CLASSIC: for normal and combination skin, CLASSIC forms the foundation of the brand with an effective range of everyday cleanse, tone, wash and moisturising products.

African Extracts Rooibos ADVANTAGE: for dry and mature skin, this collection has been specially formulated to keep skin young, firm, radiant and smooth.
