Africa's Skin Saviour

At the heart of Afari skincare, is Bulbine frutescens, a small indigenous shrub that grows in the dry valleys of southern Africa. This succulent plant contains a gel-like sap in its leaves, which has been used by generations of traditional healers as a remedy for skin injuries due to the soothing, anti-inflammatory effect of the sap.

Just released scientific research has shown the plant has a lot more to offer; the sap has clinically proven benefits in the stimulation of collagen synthesis, a fundamental process in maintaining skin’s healthy, youthful-looking appearance.

Key benefits of Bulbine frutescens:

  • Immediately noticeable skin tightening of the skin
  • Quickly and reliably minimises the appearance of wrinkles
  • Clinical trials have shown that wrinkles around the eye area may reduce by up to 74% one hour after use
  • Scientifically proven to visibly lift and improve the structure of sagging skin

Afari sources Bulbine frutescens from an organic farm in rural Limpopo in South Africa, where it is sustainably cultivated by female producers. Each Afari product sold directly benefits the women harvesting the plants.
