    The Courage To Be Wholly Yourself 

    Join our revolution as we empower women to make skincare and beauty choices that will support our biology. We have been proud industry activists since our inception in the early 2000s, advocating ethical and safe ingredient selections. We carefully research every ingredient we use, and avoid all harsh chemicals with clear links to cancer and disease. Each ingredient is tested for safety and efficacy on human volunteers, and we only use organically harvested and preserved ingredients. We constantly challenge other companies in the skincare, spa and beauty industry to do the same. If we wouldn’t put it in our bodies, we would never do the same to you.

  • Celebrate the return of beautiful Spring with our Eco-Parfum range

    Our sense of smell is the first we gain, and the last we lose. Through scent we recognise family, and through fragrance we are uplifted. Important moments are marked by scent – of a baby’s skin, of a beloved’s aftershave, of granny’s baking. It’s the warmth of a family dinner, the jacket of a father hanging in a cupboard. Smells have warned us, guided us and reminded us.

  • Is your skin care free from heavy metals? Our chelation process.

    Chelating agents are used in cosmetic formulations to bind metals and to help them pass through the body. Africology uses Sodium Phytate, which is a white, odour-free powder that is easily/readily water soluble. It is used as a chelate/cheating agent to boost the antimicrobial activity of preservatives, improve the efficacy of antioxidants, and stabilize products against the effects of metal contamination.

    We use it as metals can enter a cosmetic formulation from production equipment, as well as unavoidable impurities from ingredients (e.g. extracts, pigments) and from processing water. 

    Our chelation is used in combination with typical antioxidants (tocopherol, ascobyl palmitate) to ensure that metals do not oxidise in the body.
