For a long time, the world of skin care didn’t recognise that women with melanin-rich skins have different issues from their fairer-skinned sisters – like overactive sebaceous glands that produce a shine as the day wears on, and a slightly ashy dullness when skin’s not well moisturised, not to mention uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
African Extracts is South Africa’s fastest-growing local skin care brand, with ranges that address skin types. However, for some women of colour there was often a dilemma – choose Purifying for oiliness and breakouts or Advantage for extra moisture, despite its richer texture for dry skins? And no range offered a complete even tone solution.
Now there’s Radiance, our newest range for luminous, shine-free skin – no matter what your skin shade. The key ingredient is our signature Bio-Active Rooibos for its amazing antioxidant powers to protect cellular metabolism and boost the skin’s natural defences. Radiance has some exciting new plant extracts proven to counter the damaging effects of air pollution, sun exposure and stress, and effective levels of Vitamin C and E to detoxify and brighten your skin, minimise pores, help fade dark marks and reduce excess oil. The result – an even-toned, radiant, healthy-looking complexion. Plus, it’s entirely plant-based, so suitable for vegans.
