Promotions are not redeemable for cash. Afari reserves the right to change or rescind offers and promotion codes at any time. Please note that misuse of promotions and codes may result in order cancellation.

Do Afari products have expiration dates?

All Afari products have a shelf life of two years, and 12 months after opening.
All skin care products have a period-after-opening date that is printed on the packaging. 
This information is a guideline so that you get the most out of your products and use them at their peak efficacy. If you look on the back of your Afari bottles, you will see a little open can with a number inside, which refers to the number of months in which we recommend using the product. In Afari’s case, all products have a shelf life of 12 months once opened.

Are Afari products non-comedogenic?

All of our products have undergone clinical trials and none of the participants in the trials have ever experienced irritation or breakouts when using only Afari products. 

Does Afari test on animals?

No, we love our furry friends too much.

Are Afari products vegan?

Yes, we do not use any animal-derived ingredients in our formulations.

Are Afari products organic?

We use select organic ingredients in our Afari collection, which includes our hero active ingredient, Bulbine frutescens.

We have made a conscious decision not to call out this fact on our packaging and online as there are multiple certificates for different countries and many of these do not guarantee either 100% natural or organic products. 

Please know we will always ensure that our products are totally free from potentially harmful ingredients and our formulations are clean, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.

How do I know Afari products are right for me?

Afari products are suitable for all skin types. However, if you need assistance identifying which products suit you best, please get in touch with us for recommendations. Email us at hello@afari.co.za for a personal consultation. 


What makes Afari different?

While we aren’t the only luxury skincare brand available, we are the only luxury skincare brand sourcing our hero ingredient from a low-income community in Limpopo, where every Afari purchase helps drive positive change for those who need it most.

To meet the women whose lives you’re changing with your purchases, please see our Giving Back page.
