Planet Botanicals Natural African Inspired Skin Care Brand
As the seasons change from cold to warm, colds and flu become all too common and unfortunately for me I have been bedridden, trying to shake of a particularly nasty cold, and generally feeling sorry for myself! As one to shun medication for as long as I possibly can, I tend to prefer natural goodness and remedies in essential oils and soothing herbal teas to get me well, as well as aiding overall day-to-day wellbeing, so it always good to get to know new products. I recently came across Planet Botanicals, a US-based natural African inspired skin care brand whose luxurious products, comprising body scrubs, washes, butters and oils; in addition to a dedicated facial skin care range, are formulated to provide healing and nourishment to the skin, as well as promoting wellbeing to mind, body and soul.
Working in accordance to the principles of fairtrade and environmental sustainability guidelines rare, natural and organic indigenous plant oils and flower extracts are sourced direct from local organic producers, cooperatives, and artisan essential oil distillers across the African continent, and other parts of the world; seeing ingredients like organic shea butter from Uganda, virgin coconut butter and cocoa butter combined with Ethiopian arabica coffee beans, baobab fruit extracts, rooibos, marula, moringa, and the fruit from the Kigelia tree, also known as the Sausage tree, sourced from the Zambezi Valley, which is recognised in the skin care industry for its anti-ageing properties.
