AFRICAN BOTANICS PRESS MENTION


BYRDIE SKINCARE AWARDS

Infinite Resurfacing Mask awarded Best Brightening Mask.

The Praise: "The first time I tried this mask was just after spending a week with family in arid Arizona. My normally-dry skin was drier and duller than ever, so I was more than impressed when I used this mask and my skin suddenly felt ridiculously soft and supple, with all my congestion gone. It's truly a facial in a bottle that's gentle enough for sensitive skin. I love using it regularly in between facial appointments to keep my skin in check and help brighten my skin tone." - Braina Laviena
The Eco Factor: African Botanics sources its botanical ingredients from Fair Trade communities in South Africa, allowing it to help local communities invest in the preservation of their land.

Neroli Infused Marula Oil is featured in “9 Aromatic Oils to Soothe Your Mind and Skin.”

If this product were an astrological sign, it’d be a Capricorn: it makes sure its loved ones (you) are feeling at ease while working hard to protect them (again, you) from any dangers. Neroli flowers are macerated in marula oil, which essentially means that dried flowers are soaked in oil to achieve optimal extraction from the bloom. Neroli works to ease the mind with its floral and spiced notes. Marula oil helps to fight off free radicals with its antioxidants and eliminate breakouts with its antimicrobial properties. That means you’re calm and your skin looks great, too.

Buchu Botanical Enzyme Polish is featured in “The Best Clean Beauty Products for Quarantine and Beyond.”

The most important step in a facial is the exfoliating process—we don’t have to forgo that step now that we’re at home. This gentle, exfoliating face polish uses papaya and pineapple enzymes to clear and minimize the appearance of pores, while sun-dried Buchu and Baobab fruit work to refine texture and reduce the appearance of sun spots and fine lines. The crucial ingredient here is micro-algae which is rich in mineral salts and proteins to penetrate while protecting the skin barrier. Fans of African Botanics include Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, Goldie Hawn, and hair maven Jen Atkin.

Neroli Infused Marula Oil is featured in “How to Layer Products in Your Skin-Care Routine Correctly.”

If there's one step in your daily skin-care routine that surprisingly divides experts, it's face oil. The most common recommendation is to apply it last at night and second-to-last before sunscreen in the morning. That's because oils are occlusive, says Mona Gohara, M.D., dermatologist and associate clinical professor at Yale School of Medicine. Meaning, they help trap moisture in your skin.

Intense Skin Repair Balm is featured in “Marula Oil Is Essentially the Gatekeeper For Skin's Collagen and Elastin Reserves.”

"Marula oil contains the phytochemical epicatechin, which has strong antioxidant properties," explains Haley. And all those antioxidants are choice for helping to stave off the free radicals caused by exposure to UV rays and pollution (which can lead to things like spots and changes in skin texture).
