Win an African Extracts skincare hamper in IOL’s #MyHeart competition

In this Month of Love, how about a little appreciation for our amazing and unique country. For example, the avocados of Limpopo, the sugarcane of KZN, the pineapples of the Eastern Cape, South Africa is known and loved for its amazing produce.

Another amazing South African crop, is 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 red tea, rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) is widely acknowledged for its health-giving benefits. 

From this natural heritage, South African beauty brand African Extracts developed skin care solutions with Bio-Active Rooibos extracted from organic rooibos. The fresh-cut green plant is steam-extracted at the source to capture and preserve the highest levels of antioxidants. 

The Bio-Active Rooibos extract is supported by 35 natural plant active ingredients carefully selected for their skin-care benefits to produce African Extracts skincare range.
