African Botanics was founded by ex-South African couple Craig and Julia Noik in 2012. Raised absorbing and discovering the beauty of South Africa’s nature, age-old traditions and inspirations of their homeland would one day lead them to the creation of African Botanics skincare collection. Growing up there and subsequently moving away to Los Angeles, California in 1997 had a great impact on how they view the world. The fact that they are now able to tie together their youth with their current world living in Los Angeles and never loose sight of their roots, is something they are extremely grateful for.
African Botanics Philosophy.
Each product is made from start to finish in South Africa, giving African Botanics a rich sensory experience, heart, soul and a unique story to share. Their intention was also to create a seamless blend of true luxury and nature that can perfectly accommodate the needs of any modern individual. Craig and Julia Noik regularly visit South Africa throughout the year to see family and spend time with their producers. This experience affords them direct contact with the special contributors of African Botanics. One of the best things about their trips is meeting the harvesters, artisans and people they work with.

Sustainable Sourcing From Remote Locations.
Our ingredients come from every part of Southern Africa: the desert, the sea and the land. The majority are wild-harvested from very unique hot-spots that we call eco-zones. They grow in their natural, bio-dynamic environment free from farming, pollution, pesticides and human interference. The plants we use are sustainable and are harvested with the utmost respect for nature and future generations. Unique botanicals, plant butter, seed oils and minerals originate from remote, untouched regions.
Potent Ingredients, From Extreme Eco-Zones.
Smart, effective, potent and clinically proven ingredients are selected for compatibility with the skin and sensorial richness. Every single active ingredient that we use has to meet these strict criteria.
We source our raw ingredients directly from each supplier so we know and can trace everything that goes into the creation of our products. We regularly visit our suppliers from the highest altitude mountain estates and dry desert to the wild and hot African savannah.
Our vision for the brand is to redefine what positive luxury truly means to us and showcase what Africa has to offer on a luxury level.
