How We Formulate
Africology’s product formulations and spa treatment offerings are inspired by the wisdom of Africa's traditional healers and celebrate Africa's vibrant heritage, communities and plant life.
We focus on ‘capturing the intelligence of nature’ during our formulation process to bring you a skincare line with the primary goal of inhibiting the ageing process naturally. We believe in responsible formulating practices, and therefore only use safe, non-toxic preservatives and where possible, organic ingredients.
Africology has taken much time and carried out extensive research to find powerful natural ingredients that not only indulge the senses but also work actively on the skin to produce effective results. South Africa has many wonderful indigenous medicinal plants and herbs that are beneficial to the skin, body and mind as a whole. We make use of the purifying essence of some of these plants, namely rooibos, aloe ferox, marula and African potato. We macerate our plants in a marula, rosehip and aloe vera oil blend, using a very slow process. We take great care not to harm the vital mineral content of the plants.
We believe in ingredients that are pure, naturally active and work in harmony with the body.
