Nature's gift from the Cederberg
African Extracts is inspired by the unique antioxidant power of the rooibos plant that grows naturally only in one place on earth, the rugged Cederberg mountains of the Western Cape.
Known for centuries by the Khoi and the San, and developed later as a health tea, Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is proven to help fight free radical activity that leads to oxidative stress and lifestyle diseases, as well as skin ageing.
Our Bio-Active Rooibos extract is rich in unique antioxidants, natural alpha-hydroxy acids and minerals, including zinc. Organically grown, watered only by the rain and nourished by mineral-rich soils of this unique climate, fresh green Rooibos is harvested by hand. Steam is used to make an extract that captures and preserves the highest possible levels of antioxidants for use in our skin-care products.
