The Pearl Report

New Brand: African Botanics

Haven’t heard of African Botanics yet? Don’t worry jetsetters, we know you’ve been busy this season. Meet your new favorite skincare line, who is LA based but founded on the love of the flora and fauna from South Africa. They use “pure, potent, non-toxic, and effective” ingredients to make their  award winning skincare collection, and by sourcing these ingredients only from small fair trade communities in southern Africa, the brand is giving back to these underdeveloped areas and groups. In addition to standing up against animal cruelty and testing, they are 100% vegan to boot. Our verdict? We’re already on our second bottle of Neroli Infused Marula Oil…read on for more of our favorites.

Marula Shimmering Oil

Our personal favorite for summertime! An antioxidant rich cocktail of exotic cold pressed oils that reverse damage incurred from our environment, sun exposure, and pollution. Better yet, it gives your skin a lovely shimmer from mother of pearl minerals. Ready, set, glow!

Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil

2 Fleurs d’Afrique Intensive Recovery Oil

This uber luxe facial oil can be used in place of serums to target: fine lines, redness, sagging skin, and even past UV damage. Yes, you heard us right- this facial oil is truly something special. The deeply penetrating and unique formula incorporates Vitamin C, Retinol, Marine micro-algae and several floral extracts like Jasmine (which has been proven to correct and prevent sun damage), and Damask Rose.

Buchu Botanical Enzyme Polish

Gentle but deeply exfoliating, this incredible skin polish uses our favorite enzymes (from Papaya and Pineapple) to lift dead skin cells and give you a glowing and radiant complexion. This wonder product also uses Marula and Green Rooibos Tea antioxidants for their protective, regenerating, and anti-aging properties. This is a fabulous product to incorporate into your weekly exfoliation routine and will yield immediate results. It’s also ideal for post travel fatigue you may be showcasing after that incredible trip you just returned from.

Marula Firming Botanical Oil

Have issues with lack of firmness or sagging? You won’t anymore after using this body oil. This formula is super rich with plant collagen and vitamins to promote your collagen production (read: the thing that makes our skin look plump and youthful!)
