"While we’re still on the continent, let’s head to South Africa, the birthplace of the African Botanics collection established by South African couple Craig and Julia Noik in 2012. Now based in Los Angeles, the two learned growing up in South Africa about native plant extracts that have been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes, and on scrapes and sunburns. For this skin care line, they combined phytotherapy using native South African plants with cosmetic science. The list of ingredients on the company’s website reads like something out of a Rudyard Kipling story, with things like baobab, honeybush (with an extract that acts against UVB damage), and Cape mahogany seed oil, rich in essential fatty acids which are then blended with scientifically derived ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids or retinaldehyde, a stabilized bioactive form of vitamin A. The company just introduced an Eye Contour Gel-Serum chock-full of ceramides, lupine oligosaccharides, yeast beta-glucan, vitamin B3, vitamin C, and fucoidan-rich seaweed extract, along with caffeine, arnica, copper, and dragon’s blood extract that reduce puffiness and dark circles. They also debuted the Silver Rescue Cream, an anti-inflammatory moisturizer with broad-spectrum CBD extract and colloidal silver in addition to resurrection plant and devil’s claw that work to keep water moisture inside the skin. African Botanics works with single-origin micro producers in Africa and other parts of the world for sustainably grown ingredients." -  Katie Weisman, Beauty Writer

Café Noir Body Exfoliant is featured in “13 Body Scrubs for Smooth, Flake-Free Skin.” 

When it comes to exfoliation, you can go one of two routes. There’s physical or mechanical exfoliation, which involves using some type of particle (sugar, salt, seeds) to actually scrub off dead skin. Then there’s chemical exfoliation, which uses various acids to dissolve dead cells. It largely boils down to a matter of personal preference, but if you really want to get skin silky smooth, seeking out a product that combines both methods is a good way to go.

Enter this formula, a favorite of Xue’s. It touts both coffee beans and crushed Marula nut shell powder, as well as a blend of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids so that you get the best of both worlds.
