African Botanics

Inspired by love for their home country of South Africa, Craig and Julia Noik founded African Botanics in 2012. Currently based in Los Angeles, this husband and wife duo started the organic beauty line with the aim of honoring thousands of years of African beauty and traditional medicinal knowledge, arising from the need to protect the skin from the harsh African environment.
African Botanics natural skin care products are crafted from start to finish in South Africa, where Craig and Julia regularly visit to spend time with their producers and meet new harvesters and artisans. Connecting with their people, and sharing the success of the brand, truly motivates and inspires these two.
The main ingredient in African Botanics’ beauty products is Marula oil, also known as Africa’s beauty secret. African Botanics sources their Marula oil from wild-growing trees in the most pristine and remote rural communities of South Africa. The oil is certified organic, fair trade, and a naturally soothing, fast-absorbing, non-greasy oil, suitable for all skin types.
Marula oil contains powerful antioxidants and high concentrations of nutrients and essential fatty acids that reverse sun damage, boost cellular activity, and help to build healthy collagen. African Botanics’ product line incorporates multitasking Marula into a complete skin care regimen of oils, cleansers, masks, creams, and exfoliators.
Craig and Julia have worked passionately to create a luxury, organic and highly effective natural beauty line that reveres the beauty traditions of South Africa. From the divine scents to the beautiful packaging and impressive outcomes, African Botanics products create lush, multi-sensory experiences that bring out your natural beauty.
